It’s official! I’ve turned into my mother. I used to be completely bored for every Home Depot trip and now I’m obsessed. I look forward to every Home Depot trip, which is often since we’re building a few things for our home.
It all started when my colleague gave me so many plants for my new home. He has a fabulous collection as well. I ended up sharing the wealth with my mom and mother-in-law. I am clueless with plants, so with a lot of research and Instagram knowing what I’m searching, I collected more and more plants. I plan on getting that jungle aesthetic in my home.
After the chain of events, I currently sit at home with 13 plants. I have invested so much money already, especially those pots. Why are they so expensive? I hope they make it through the winter. I need my quarantine hobby to last into next year.
I’m listing all my plants here, partially because I’m proud of them but also I will forget their names. I probably will need to Google later on how to take care of each one of these in the Spring. Here we go:
Botanical Name: Petra Croton
Botanical Name: Dracaena Braunii
Rubber Fig Tree
Botanical Name: Ficus Elastica
Botanical Name: Monstera Deliciosa
Bird’s Nest Snake
Botanical Name: Sansevieria Hahnii

I tend to go for very lush, hearty green leaves- give or take a few. They each need unique care and are my plant babies. What are you doing to keep yourself busy?
