Throwback to when my string of pearls was thriving. Has anyone had any luck with them? I have two little ones that are making it but I just can’t seem to keep the larger ones alive 😫 helpppp

Feeling so proud of my string of hearts baby, she's grown so much from when I acquired her in the beginning of summer 💚🌱 #proudmamma
Did you know that string of hearts is from the succulent family, so watering and sun requirements are the same as other succulents! They like heat and bright light, but do not like direct sun 🙅🏽♀️🙅🏽♀️🙅🏽♀️. Give them a good soak when the soil is completely dry, which means more waterings in summer (💧💧💧) and less in the winter (💧). Fertilizing them once a month is summer's is the way to go as they don't need much to grow!
My plant baby is almost ready to be a Plant Parent itself! Can't want to propogate some babies! Stay tuned 😉💚🌱
Coming in August to the Sacred Elements blog: Growing and caring for #oxalis as a houseplant and your garden landscape.
This particular #oxalistriangularis has taught me so much over the years. It’s also been featured in countless time lapse videos and is now thriving like never before since I’ve been feeding it our Multi-Purpose tonic. The healthy new growth is seriously making my heart flutter as each day I discover many new leaves! #sacredelements#plantcare

Yesterday, I experienced a PLANT PARENTING LOW. I honestly thought about giving away all of my plants.
I feel fortunate to be in a space where I can share this knowledge, but yesterday I felt like my passion might have taken a knock.
I feel like sometimes the plant community can focus too much on plant aesthetics. It’s NOT about...
👎🏾Who has the rarest plant
👎🏾Who has the biggest Monstera
👎🏾Who has the most variegated leaves.
👎🏾 Posting the perfect picture of the most perfect plant.
👎🏾 Who knows how to pronounce the most complicated scientific name of a plant.
Are we in chest beating contest over something that can be found in nature for everyone to enjoy? 🤷🏾♀️
It should be about...
🌱Promoting healthy plants and not perfect plants
🌱Knowledge sharing of plant care so that people don’t feel like having an beautiful indoor garden is inaccessible.
🌱Supporting our local nurseries and online plant shops
🌱 Sharing knowledge on how to grow new plants from cuttings and sharing them so that this journey is enjoyable and inexpensive.
🌱 Being honest, because even if you have green fingers, sometimes your plants will just die and that happens.
🌱 Making mistakes, learning and enjoying this journey
🌙I want this to be a safe and creative space where knowledge can be shared, where honest conversations can be had and I can continue to share authentically about plant care and the other aspects of my life that are important to me. 🌙
✨I appreciate you being here, taking the time to engage with me. It makes me feel so grateful that you are trusting me in joining you on your journey to caring and growing your plant babies. Thank you✨

this is back in May when I first installed these new shelves. I LOVE how it looks but it sure is way harder to maintain than my beloved crate shelves 😪.
once I take my plants down for a watering, I can never remember the way they were and the new order never quite works the same. 🤦🏾♀️ super frustrating lol. I’ll get used to it eventually.
this was also around the time when I began to completely neglect ALL of my plants which was around 10 weeks ago. this was due to being stressed out. when I experience lots of stress/anxiety. the first task that I neglect is watering my plants (and then I stop cleaning 😳).
being that I work with plants and talk about plants everyday as my job, the last thing I want to do at the end (or the beginning) of my work day is water and talk about more plants when I’m in this state.
I usually don’t like to go into details about it because “plants make people happy” but I’m not happy all of the time. life is hard. especially now.
sometimes I just need to lay on the couch, drink wine and watch 90 day fiancé to make me feel better during my free time. 🤷🏾♀️ whatever calms my mind at the time.
when I showed the state of my monstera the other day in my stories, so many people were so sad for the PLANT. don’t get me wrong, most people were concerned about me, which was amazing and THANK YOU all so much for your kind words 🖤. I just wanted to clarify that I don’t neglect my plants because I have too many. I’m a BEAST at this plant care game 💁🏾♀️ but life happens.
I love my plants but I’m not super attached to them. If they have to decline until I get myself 💯 again, so be it. I’m more concerned about my own well-being. at the end of the day, it’s just a plant...
#monsteramonday 🌿 this corner always gets shuffled around to take into account the changing light conditions... here are some #plantcare tips to start the week off!
🌤During Summer the light is not only brighter (except for this morning when it was dark + rainy!) but more intense too.
☀️ Keep an eye on plants that are close to your windows or on the windowsills to ensue they aren’t getting scorched. If you have a south facing room, be extra careful!
🌵 If you keep cacti or succulents, don’t just assume they will be fine on the windowsill if they haven’t acclimatised. Check they aren’t getting too much of a suntan by rotating regularly - but if they are getting frazzled, move further away from the window.
💦 More light = more regular watering! Be aware that in warm, dry conditions (especially if you forget to water your plants now and again!) you’ll want to be extra aware of pests who can attack a weakened plant.
⏱A set ‘watering schedule’ doesn’t work because your plants have different needs + they won’t all need a drink or a shower at the same time. I find it easiest to keep plants with similar needs together so that their care requirements are generally similar too For example, my bedroom pothos gang need a water around once a week, but my larger plant in the same room takes a little longer to dry out as it’s the furthest away from the light. Treat each plant individually.
🍃 Listen to your plants! Don’t be afraid to move your plants around as the seasons change to help them be happy + thrive in your home - they will thank you for it! 😊
