Plants are my passion because they are therapeutic, resilient and rewarding. I started caring for plants in June of 2017 and I’ve grown more attached to my new hobby. My goal is to pass on the same benefits to others through my art work. I strongly believe anyone can grow a plant and this blog is here to help.
Caring for plants is simple and with desert plants specifically they are very forgiving. Don’t be afraid to kill it if you are not watering everyday. That being said, this blog will help you with the basics in learning to care for your plant. Along the way you will learn more about your plant and start to feel good about caring for such a unique living thing. I found caring for my plants to be stress relieving and fun. The great thing about a plant is how universal they can be, take your time to find the right one. What ever your story is, a plant can help you feel better and find beauty in the world.
These plants are very resilient, some might even say they are proof of millions of years of evolution. Air plants in particular do not require any soil to grow and bloom. Succulents on the other hand do, but they have a way of caring for themselves. Their leaves are full of water, allowing them to go long periods without water. Cactus are easy to care for in the sense that one does not need to put in a lot of effort. The amazing abilities of these plants prove to me that anything is possible if you don’t give up and keep going. Desert plants can endure drought and flood, so then anyone can endure what comes their way. Resilience is key in finding success with growing a plant and other aspects of life.
Before I get too deep and emotional, I must say how rewarding my passion has been for me and can be for you. Anyone can do it, but when it gets tough all you need is help. I am so grateful to be able to share my knowledge and art work with the public. I am happier and find more fulfillment each day. Those without experience will find great satisfaction in their new ability. Those with experience will find my plants interesting and easy to care for. These plants can be incorporated into you home or workplace within each design. This is in effort to maximize my ability to pass on this wonderful gift to others.
I want to express my thanks to those who have supported me along the way and help make all this possible. It has changed my life and I could not have done it without the support and encouragement I’ve received. An extra special thanks to my wonderful, loving man. He has been an inspiration to me and I am so grateful to have him by my side through this incredible journey.
