Plant Care 101

Snake plant, croton, dracaena marginata

During COVID, I developed a real addiction ya'll and I am happy to say I am now a proud plant lady. 

 

Okay, so how did this start?

 

Well my brother-in-law started buying plants maybe 1+ years ago. I always thought it was weird, like "who wants or cares about plants". Silly me! One day my sis and I were in Home Depot getting project supplies and I bought a Croton because I loved its beautiful colors. I also picked up a Snake plant a Draecana Marginata, because why start with one!? Of course I didn't know what I was doing. I brought it home, and sat it on a window sill (because all plants need light, right?) and turned away. I didn't even water them for weeks. 

 

Well that worked great for my Snake Plant and Dracaena Marginata..not so much for the Croton, named Chrissy. I was able to water Chrissy back to health but ultimately thought she was too much work and chucked her...please don't judge me. 

Anyway, since then, I now have over 40 plants. I love them so much and I'm going to share tips on all things plant care!
