Plant Lady Is The New Cat Lady | Inspiration: Plants

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?

Love,

Neeltje

      Haha I wish! You should get a cacti because they only need water every once in awhile 🙂 X

    I am both crazy cat lady and crazy plant lady, I water my plants once a week and it’s rather time consuming! I just seem to acquire more plants and can’t seem to help myself ? I find my watering time so peaceful and relaxing. I love the pictures you put here, oh so heavenly!!!

    I’ve been wanting to get air plants for the longest time but I just have the hardest time wrapping my head around how to care for them! What kind of containers/pots do you put yours in?

      I have them in these round vases, which you can hang anywhere you like! But you can also just lay then on a cute coaster or something like that 🙂 X

    I love everything you do! Such a great inspiration and ideas!

    Haha, ik heb ook een tijd geen cactus heel kunnen houden, maar ook ik begin een beetje groene vingers te krijgen. Heel leuk al die planten.

    What a lot of plants! I’m not a plant person at all. Can’t keep them alive. Do you also have flowers in your home or just plants?

    Love your shop… great tips.

    Tof zeg! Ik werk sinds begin dit jaar voor een webshop welke planten direct van de kweker verkoopt. Ik moet eerlijk bekennen dat ik ook een echte ‘Plant Lady’ begin te worden 😉

    Ik vind planten best mooi, alleen zij mij niet. Ze gaan altijd dood bij mij dus ik begin er niet meer aan. Maar dit levert echt schitterende plaatjes op.

      Haha ach, mij lukt het eerst ook niet om ze levend te houden maar het gaat steeds beter 🙂 X

    Mooi allemaal! Heb zelf ook een aantal planten, maar de Pannenkoekplant groeit het allerbeste.

    Ik ben ook echt een plantenmens! Het liefst zou ik ze allemaal op mijn kamer zetten 😉

  11. August 22, 2017 / 9:46 pm

    Haha jaaa ik ben ook gek op planten en wildernis is echt top. Ik hou van hangende planten, wil ze veel meer in huis!

  12. August 23, 2017 / 10:25 am

    My favorite kind of plant is made of fabric or plastic….

  13. August 23, 2017 / 10:26 am

    Ik kan niet wachten tot ons huis af is dan wil ik ook veel planten in huis hebben. Ziet er prachtig uit bij jou!

  14. August 23, 2017 / 11:20 pm

    Ik heb ook veel groen in huis! Al moet ik wel bekennen dat ik ook een aantal kunst plantjes heb…

    Ik ben gek op planten. Heb er helaas momenteel maar eentje. Maar wel een geweldige: de zamiocluas.
    Ik hoef er amper naar om te kijken en hij groeit als kool! 🙂

    Ik beschik helaas niet echt over groene vingers. We hebben wel een aantal planten in huis, maar dat zijn vaak planten die ongeacht het wel of niet water geven toch wel groeien.

  19. August 28, 2017 / 4:25 pm

    Wat leuk! Op mijn studentenkamer heb ik ook een aantal cactusjes en vetplantjes. Ik had ook ooit een grote plant, maar die heb ik helaas niet in leven kunnen houden 🙁
