Hello! Hope you’re all okay. I am officially a #Plarent for Plant Parent or a #Plantita for Plant Tita (Aunt). I also believe I have a green thumb. Lucky!🍀 My first ever succulent was a Jade Plant, which was one of my very first gift from here . I went home feeling like Mathilda, Natalie Portman’s character in The Professional. I was hugging it. Then corona virus happens, suddenly, we all can use some succulents to keep us busy and distracted. But truly, they are much more than that, they are source of joy, comfort and inner peace. They are pretty resilient, I reckon, anyone can raise succulents!
I got the pots from Amazon. I just started, so no, I’m not mixing my own soil yet. So far so good. I have more detailed post on my IG @Chicsassymomfinds .
One can never have too many plants. I tend to be a
competitive diligent collector. There are a lot of species, varieties. So it’s like a hunting. Move over ref magnet…hello, succulent! Honestly, I just find joy in making them thrive. It breaks my heart when one doesn’t make it. I mean, really?! It happened…because of overwatering or I broke a petal (sort of) especially from one of the echeveria, the rosette types.
So far, with life being so tough lately, I get by with a little help from these. It’s indeed the little things. And just in case, we all know it…we can’t buy happiness, but we can buy plants! So carry on, keep calm and raise succulents. Let’s do this! Keep thriving…this too shall pass! ❤️
