Anyone else get excited to go back home after vacation. Of course for the obvious reasons, like your own bed and getting back to your normal routine. But right now I’m excited to see my plants 😂. It will be close to midnight before we get home (it’s 8am now) but I can assure you that I’ll check on on my plants before I go to bed. Prepare for the insta stories update.
Good morning, beautiful people! This is my pot of guys who need a bit of rehab. On the right are all the ones Magenta and I beheaded right before we held our very first live sale! And on the left are some of the babies from the rescue pot I got earlier this week. Not too sure of the IDs of these guys, but if you know, feel free to share 😊 -H🌵
Happy Thursday chubby-plant lovers! Today I wanted to discuss one of my favorite strange succulents, the ZZ plant !
Zamioculcas is a monotypic genus of flowering succulent in the family Araceae! Monotypic genus contain one single species, in this case Zamioculcas Zamiifolia! This unique plant is a tropical perennial that hails from a wide swath of eastern Africa, from Kenya to South Africa. This odd species is commonly known as the ZZ plant, Zuzu plant, Aroid Palm, and the Eternity Plant. The ZZ Plant may look like any other leafy species, but the entire plant, at least what you can see, is actually a leafy succulent species! This plant sends up 3-4 foot (90-120 CM) long 'leaves' with bulbous bases that may look like stems to the untrained eye, directly from a large potato-like rhizome root base! These leaves are made up of six to eight pairs of glossy, deep green leaflets (what appear as leaves), each up to 6 inches (15 CM) long. Zamioculcas Zamiifolia is easily propagated by leaf cuttings, as this plant was grown! Gently remove an entire leaflet and insert the lower end of this detached 'leaf' into a moist, gritty potting soil. You'll also want to enclose the entire pot in a polythene bag to keep the humidity levels high. Though the cut leaf will eventually decay, succulent bulb-like structures should form under the soil and these can each be potted up individually to produce new plants. The leaf should be left until natural decomposition occurs! The entire process may take upwards of one year, but in summer these plants grow their fastest. Pictured today is 3 months of growth from leaf to succulent !

This is the last glass globe planter we have in stock, y’all! 🙌🏻
This 3” glass globe is held in place by handmade geometric brass with 2 foot long stunning fishtail chain. We have also included one of our Merida Tillandsia. This baby is in FULL bloom just in time for the holidays.🎄🎁✨
To see this piece in person, stop by the truck this weekend at @thefreretmarket on Saturday from 11am - 4pm or @lionheartprints on Sunday from 11am - 4pm. DM is for more info. 🌿🚐🌹
A big part of my job is finding the right plant for the right spot. But almost equally important, is matching the right pot to the right plant.
There are no rules. Play around, swap plants and pots until you hit the combination you love, one that just feels right. You'll know when you do!
I did with this rhipsalis in @clarebwhitney pot💥👌👑 Both available instore.
Představujeme vám Senecio haworthii, velice oblíbenou pokojovou rostlinu, která zdobí sbírku snad každého pěstitele.
🌱Z rodu jich najdeme přes tisíc druhů, od vytrvalých sukulentů přes jednoleté keříky až po liány. Vyhovuje jí dostatek světla a mírné teplo, na záhonku spíše polostín.
🌎Tyto sukulenty původně naleznete v Africe, na Madagaskaru nebo v Mexiku, ale i na Kanárských ostrovech či v Indii.
☝🏻Rostlinku bělostného vzhledu objevil roku 1803 Adrian Haworth a brzo zjistil, že se jedná o velice náladový sukulent. Jednou vyžaduje mnoho vody a jindy si na zálivku ani nevzpomene. Z tohoto důvodu nejčastěji uhyne, proto je třeba dát na zálivku obzvláště pozor.
Everyday I try to be intentional about engaging in self-care. Some days my self-care is blasting opera music in my apartment as I water my green gurls, other days randomly it’s browsing through plant shops and chatting with the shop keepers about plant care tips, or it’s a trip with bae to the botanical garden. It looks different everyday. Take time to engage self-care as often as you can, you deserve it. 💚🌿
ALSO, the plant I’m holding in my arms is Ms. Aglaonema (aka Chinese Evergreen) and she is a fabulous green gurl for the up and coming plant kweens! She’s low-maintenance and can survive in low-light conditions. 🤗🌿
#throwbackthursday from a few months ago when I used mostly white cache pots. Now about half the plants are in terra cotta or just in their plastic pots. Also, I kinda miss that Calathea ‘Maui Queen’. 🥺😢

Hands up if you find it tricky to take interior design risks? 🙋🏼♀️🙋🏼♀️ I certainly used to. If you’d told me a few years ago I’d be bolting a ladder to my ceiling or painting my fireplace fluorescent green I’d have told you to jog on.
If you fancy learning a bit more about my interior design journey and picking up a few of my tips and tricks along the way then head over to @livingetcuk online today (don’t think I will ever tire if saying that!). I’m talking lessons in style. I’ll pop the link in my bio. Enjoy
today i wanna thank my zz plant for being so chill. it’s a super low maintenance plant - seriously, i can’t remember the last time i watered it. even though his pot is rock hard from being root bound (smh) & it’s winter, he’s still pushing out three new stems. please check #jmzamioculcaszamiifolia for progress.
🧠 fun facts:
• zz is described as a living fossil - it might have evolved as early as 42 million years ago (nauheimer et al., 2012)!!! it’s mind-blowing thinking about what this plant has survived to still be living with us 🦖🦕
• this plant is actually medicinal & not toxic as it’s assumed to be (le moullec et al., 2015). zz has frequently been used medicinally in malawi to treat earache & in tanzania as an anti-inflammatory & to treat ulcers (le moullec et al., 2015).
