House Plants

Giving my house plants a much needed trim

2020-09-07 08:29 #0 by: Evelina

I finally went through my whole apartment and gave all my plants a ”haircut.” The plants look much better and so does my apartment! It looks a bit less like an unattended jungle now. 😅

I didn’t count but I have probably ended up with over 200 plant cuttings. I’ll end up giving some away during the holidays to friends. I usually give the less expensive ones away as many people don’t know how to care from them and they end up dying anyway. 😆

The more expensive and rare ones will end up getting sold. I might keep a few just in case something happens to the parent plant though.

Ill have to let them properly root in the water, then Ill transfer them to small pots with soil and bark and let them get more firmly established. Then, it will be off to their new homes!

Nice job!

I just took in my last plant that have been standing outside during the summer. (All but one that is left planted in the garden because I don't have room for it so sadly it probably will die if I can't find someone to take it, a big jade tree plant).

Thanks! Glad

I hope you can find a home for it! Jade plants are so pretty. I have a small one and its growing like crazy.

I have 5 big jade trees (with the one still outside)! Not easy having room for them all because I got a lot of big Hoyas of different kind to.

They are beautiful though! Glad Mine is very small in comparison.

It is growing in a peculiar manner. 😆

If you can, keep it outside during the summer! They grow like weeds then! All of them (except the one in the window) was smaller then yours only 2-3 years ago.

”... then I'll transfer them to small pots with soil and bark ...”

Why bark?

Bark and perlite helps the soil breath easier. It will prevent mold from growing.
