Bearclaw With a Big Flaw

TO-DO LIST Water plants Separate aloes Treat spider mites Identify my neighbor’s old plant Keep up with my blog Finish business project for my fourth hour (selling plants of course) Defeat this stupid writer’s block. Things have been really busy of late, and I know for a fact I’ve missed some things on that list that I’ll regret…

Earl May Or Earl YAY

Hey yall! Thought I’d check in with a quick update. A week or two I took a trip down went up to Lincoln to visit family, and we stopped by Earl May. For those who it may interest, Earl May is a nursery and garden center. Walking in was like a kid stepping into a candy…

By Plants, To Plants

It’s hard to describe the beauty of nature. In captivity, in cultivation, it thrives, and nothing can convey the beauty of the rainbows caught by glass containers and shadows caught by terra-cotta that dance across my walls and floor. Wild beasts tamed only by darkness. No adjectives for the colors in leaves, stems, and flowers…

Portulasdfasdf Afra

Hey lovebugs, without suggestions, I’m a little lost! The next few blog posts are going to be a series of in depth knowledge of some of the newest editions to my plant family. One of my latest successes in propagation was of the 15 plant cuttings I ordered off Amazon. Portulacaria Afra, “elephant bush,” or “miniature…

I’m Back Botanists!

Alright y’all, it’s definitely been a minute. A switch of schools, bit of time in the hospital, moving, and about 50 more plants… The plant rebellion is over, defeated, but the army has been replenished, and my plants and mental health alike are in such better shape since I moved in with my dad. I’ve…

Propagation Fixation

Heya lovebugs! I hope the planting has been going well, for me it’s been getting pretty cold in my room at night, and I’m a bit worried my babies won’t make it. I was thinking of buying a growlight, and maybe a small heater, so if anyone has any recommendations on brands, I’d appreciate it….

The Plant Rebellion

Hey lovebugs! Happy to say I finally got some new plants, and an update on the jade I was going to propagate. Not so happy about the news on the jade though… I recently moved back into the city while my plant addiction was just starting to blossom, haha, get it? because plants? “blossom” these…

So, I Stole a Thing?

I’m not entirely sure if this counts as stealing, but it was such a beautiful jade. I’m not entirely sure why it was dropping leaves, but anyway. Walmart has super cheap succulents, jades, and assorted cacti with FAKE STRAW FLOWERS GLUED ON. Little bit pissed about that. Their hobbit jades need watered so badly, the…

Hello There, Lovebugs!

I really suck at starting blogs, so I might as well just jump right in and hope it goes well.  I’ve always really loved plants, it definitely didn’t start with cacti and succulents, but eventually I couldn’t afford seeds, and propagation fueled my addiction for free. So I’ve gotten to where I am now, but…
