YAY, finally a blog post about my love for plants. I just felt like it was time to share some of that love with you. Plants are friends, am I right? ? Of course I want to share my favorite plants at the moment, besides that I also give some tips on how to take care of them, how I style them and where I buy my plants. Let’s spread the plant love!
? MY FAVORITE PLANTS
Since I love plants so much and I own a lot, I do have a couple of favorites. First of all, my beloved cacti. This is where this plant lady thing actually started. Besides that also succulents, airplants and Pilea Peperomioides. You might not know this plant but just search for it on the internet and I sure you’ll like it as well.
I have to be honest, I may have killed a couple of cacti through the years… Of course it is always sad when that happens but it’s okay. I do have a couple of tips when you’re taking care of different kind of plants. For cacti and succulents, I would recommend watering them once a week. Don’t give them too much, just a little bit. For airplants I always thought it was so hard to take care of them but it actually isn’t. You do have to water them once a week but in a different way. You can spray them with water or just lay them in a plate filled with water. This is what I do. I soke them in water and then let them dry. Let me tell you, this will keep them alive for a very long time and that’s what we want, right?
? HOW I STYLE THEM
Plants look good in any interior and I think everyone should have them in their home. It makes it feel more cozy, at least that’s I believe. Since I mostly have small plants, I first buy a plant and then search for a cute pot to put it in. Then I decide where to put it, which might be on one of my shelves or my bookcase. Whenever I get my own home, I will also buy bigger plants. On my Pinterest account I’ve pinned tons of photos where you can see how I like to style and where I would place them these as well.
? WHERE I BUY PLANTS
You can buy plants everywhere but I thought it would be lovely to also share a couple of my favorite spots. I mostly get new plants from…
… De Bosrand. This is a garden centre you might have heard me talk about. It’s located near my grandma so we go there a lot and always try to find new kinds of plants.
… Wildernis. If you are in Amsterdam, I would really recommend going to this store. When you walk in, you’ll understand the name of the store as well. There are literally plants everywhere, which I love. Besides all the lovely plants, it’s also very Instagrammable (btw all of these photos are taken at Wildernis). ?
… Luchtplantjes. When Lotte and I were at Flavourites Feest, we actually discovered this webshop, which is all about airplants. They have so many different ones, it’s unbelieveable. For all my Dutchies, definitely check out their webshop and get your shop on.
I feel like I could talk about plants for hours haha. Hopefully you don’t think I am crazy but I just really wanted to share some tips with you. Maybe in the future I can make a more detailed post on how I style plants in an interior. Let me know if you want to see that! ? What is your favorite type of plant? Are you also a plant lady?
