Plants are absolutely my favourite way of decorating an apartment; I have dozens of them littering the windowsills and bookshelves, I regularly have to move everything around just to fit them all in. While I love succulents and have more of these than any other type of plant, I prefer the big ones that really make an impression. The aloe vera that sprawls over the top of the bookshelf, the cheese plant bursting out of its pot, and the snake plant with it’s huge spear-like leaves. I'm currently preoccupied with the more remarkable plants such as the marimo, which is a simple moss ball that bobs in a mason jar and air plants, which are odd little things that are happy to live anywhere you put them.
I’m not the most green fingered person but I’m learning. I have started (tentatively) to propagate succulents and I’m slowing learning more and more about how to care for a range of house plants. I’ve been taught several lessons at the expense of a few casualties, so I’m not going to give you any advice for caring for your plants but I can give a few recommendations on which ones to bring into your own home.
