An easel, very old hat, n a broken frame needed a purpose!! I painted the poster with an old famous Bollywood dialogue meaning "life should be large not big".
Loving this extension of balcony garden in the living room.
SPOTTED: I can’t get over watching this new leaf on my Monstera Adansonii 🌱 I will definitely be keeping a close eye on this beauty as it unfurls! 👀

i told you i have other plants! This beauty is Peperomia Frost & photos don’t do her justice. She has a beautiful silver shimmer and she’s got huge flower stalks growing! I’m obsessed. Her leaves are growing big too! See the last (& blurry 😩) photo for size comparison to my hand! I’m trying l propagate some leaves now too 🤞🏼.
Ok y'all I finished decorating my pots🤗 This was so therapeutic and calming. I mixed a burgundy matte and a gold metallic paint to get this rose gold like color. Matte paint for the hanging pot and metallic gold puff paint to outline the shapes. I spray painted a high gloss polyurethane for the shine. Glued gems to the bronze pot. Now to name them🤗. #PlantMama #BlackGirlsWithPlants#PlantThearpy#HealingThroughPlants
Lost 3 leaves at the start and new leaves withered before they’re fully unfurled.
Switched to a terracotta pot, changed the soil and placed it at a brighter spot.
Since then, there’s no more brown edges developing on leaves, except for the one that starting browning right before I repotted. There’s also a new leaf that unfurled successfully. 🥳 Guess it’s happier now!
This is the soil mix I’m currently using for my Syngoniums and seems to be working for me so far:
Half cactus soil, half potting soil, 1/4 charcoal, 1/4 coco peat, and some perlite and coco chips.

Some macrame plant hangers I’ve created. This are all sold but I am currently taking orders 😊✨ This is a great way to increase plant space while giving your house a nice boho vibe. Which one is you favourite? 🤍
I love how plants gave our home an instant makeover, and us dwellers an instant mood lift! Keeping them alive and growing has given me a sense of purpose. The newest addition to the fam is this Alocasia “Elephant Ears” beauty 🥰 #plantmama#plantsofinstagram

Say hi to some of the little baby concrete planters I’ve made. The front row are from silicone molds & the tall one was a mold I made from a Clorox container and solo cup. Bless that ones hearts. He was quite the beast but a little paint turned him into a beauty. 💄
More on the joys of working with concrete later. 😉 For now, just some pretty little succulent pots that have slowly replaced some of my old planters.💫
A dreamy plant family🥰 Propagating the monstera siltepecana, and learned that monsteras and pothos are both in the philodendron family per @hiltoncarter this evening! His Airbnb experience goes over the different types of propagation and techniques. I also learned you can propagate all-white leaves even though they don’t photosynthesize🤍Just need lots of bright indirect light.
The last day to order Flower Mama t-shirts is June 1st! DM us with size and color preference (light gray, dark gray or black). Just $25 each. Order yours today!

We have flowers on the cucumber plant!! Wooooot! Sadly, the cucumber moths found it (everything I've read says if you don't want cucumber moths/worms snacking on your plants, then don't plant cucumbers 😂😭). I picked off the ones I could find. I'll be spraying the leaves with neem oil solution when it cools off tonight. Any other natural ideas? Do cuke worms have a natural predator?!
It takes me weeks and sometimes months of contemplation, constant rearranging and evolving of styles to decorate because it has to be just right and I don’t want to spend a bunch of money all at once! It’s not laziness or procrastination to take time and put thought into something that is important to you. I have something in mind but it’s taking forever to get there! 🌵🌞🌻🦌 Also, Daniel and I made the coffee table to the left and I refinished the wooden legs on the stool. Furniture and decorations are more valuable when they have personal meaning and character. 🧡 #decorating#rustic#rusticscandi#boho#plantmama#fender#nature#eunaturale#rustucdecor#bohodecor#keeptrying#thisjourneysnotover
Lately my weekends regularly consist of a visit to the garden center ☺️🌿I will literally spend an hour or two there & you can’t tell me it isn’t time well spent. It’s a form of therapy for me; Plant care truly is self care. Being in the presence of plants and caring for them at home sparks joy and gives me a sense of peace. It feels like an escape from the cares of life. Do you ever feel this way about nurturing plants?
Making goodbye videos for my students and trying not to cry in them. What a weird way to finish the school year. I’m usually a bit shy and reserved - unless I know you really well! - so I’ve never been much of a social butterfly but the social isolation is starting to get to me. I feel so disconnected from friends and family and my students. Hopefully these videos will bring some joy to them even if it’s hard for me... I’m definitely way more comfortable being behind a camera lens 😆 #rareselfie
Hosta Planting... Gardening... Today, I decided I needed to see more greenery in my yard and so I dug up some tree bushes that really wasn't "me" and decided to plant Hostas instead... So beautiful! It was work, but the end result was well worth it!!... Touching the soil, getting on my knees and seeing that greenery bloom feels rejuvenating and nostalgic. Touching the earth and connecting to God all at once💚🍃🌿🌱 📷 by: Antoinette Nakia

Guess who treated themselves to an outing to @collectors_corner_gardenworld earlier this week?! Seriously, that place takes my breath away it’s so cool. I picked up the cutest little #hoyafinlaysonii . I am obsessed with its chunky and veiny waxy leaves 😍😍. I love how it looks in the leggy little pot I picked up from @intothewild_plants a while ago. They seriously have the best pots ever!! I have given it some thought and I am definitely a foliage over flower type of gal. What about you? 🌱🌼
BIG NEWS ✨I AM NOW A PLANT MAMA TO A SNAKE PLANT 🌱
yah girl just got her very first plant from @bloomscape yesterday and we had a mini photoshoot yesterday (😂) yup, we took pics!
on a serious note, i’ve been really drawn to caring for something in this pandemic. and since a kitty isn’t an option yet with my current living situation, i opted for this qtie 😍
MY PLANT’S NAME IS SASHA, SHE LIKES TRAP MUSIC AND FIJI WATER 💦

Times haven’t been the best but through small efforts we can keep our spirits up. I was a bit bummed out that the circuit breaker measures weren’t going to be entirely lifted but I can’t say I didn’t see it coming. I worry for my businesses, and for many others who may have it worse. I was told that close to 8000 of us have shuttered in the month of April in Singapore 💔
To take my mind off negative thoughts I saw my lovely plant friend @pl.aunty had a charity sale on some of her cuttings yesterday and I felt the need to show my support so here are my two picks from her collection grown with love, a #DiscoreaDiscolor and a baby #PileaPeperomiodes . Both of them are going straight under the grow light to get a little stronger before they move on to more ambitious things. I would love care tips from anyone who has had success with both of these! (There was a post from a local account not long hao abt their success with Pilea but I DIDN’T SAVE IT so if you know who I’m taking abt pls send it my way 😭)

Will you look at our Bird of Paradise in all of her glory! Love seeing the growth on her. She can be a bit finicky at times but so worth it. I’ve had her since summer 2017 🤷🏽♀️

Happy Memorial Day! This super simple and inexpensive DIY project was just what I needed after several challenging projects lately. Challenging for me anyway!
I found the weathered branch on one of our country drives during the quarantine time and knew I would find a fun project to use it. When I brought it on the front porch and set it on the bench, I noted that it was about the right length for this spot.
My friend Lisa @thelittlehouseonahill made a plant hanger and has directions saved on her highlights. I added some braiding to the top of mine, but it’s very similar. Thanks for the inspo Lisa!
I used clay pots I already had and filled them with herbs. I can’t get enough herbs lately. I use them in almost every meal and they add so much flavor!
I love seeing all the #diy projects here and knowing we can do hard things, but we can also do simple projects that are pretty gratifying! So who are your favorite DIYers? I’d love to know! #herbs#diyplanthanger#diyproject#frontporchproject#frontporchrefresh#planthanger#plantmama#plantsofistagram#shareyourhomestyle#myintentionalhome

before quarantine, i was what would be considered a casual plant parent.
now, i’m officially a full time plant mama. 🌿anyone else with me?
Jazz up your house and get yourself a zebra plant! 🍃
This baby needs lots of moisture so don’t leave it high and dry. All you need is a simple pot and let their bright striped appearance do the talking.
