You make it your own and give it a special location and watch it thrive. Before you can refill the watering can you are a bonafide caregiver to an array of living greenery.

View PostKeeping your indoor plants healthy and thriving doesn’t need to be difficult or frustrating. Knowing a little about the specific care of a plant helps you provide the best environment for lush growth.
Light and water are the obvious things we know to provide, but quantities vary from plant to plant. Too little or too much will result in a weak, unattractive plant, or even worse.
Other considerations such as if and when to fertilize, re-potting and bloom time.
Record and track the care requirements of each of your plants in this houseplant journal download. Make note of when and where you got each plant. Record the common name and the scientific name, so you sound knowledgeable when your coworker comments on your green thumb 🙂
Growing your houseplant collection
You might be content with a lone pothos plant being happy in your cubicle or on your office desk. I am guessing though, you are enjoying it too much to stop there. Suddenly, a visit to a garden shop is a fun weekend outing. You’re sure to get enticed there, but you can increase your plant collection in less expensive ways.
Propagation is a way of growing new plants from a variety of sources such as seeds or cuttings. You can take cutting from your own plants to make new ones or your can swap with friends who might have different plants than you. Some of my most cherished plants have been tiny stems or pieces given to me from a friend or acquaintance. Enter the specific propagation methods in your houseplant journal so you can easily refer to it when you want new plants to fill your your space or to share with others.
The more you learn about plants in general, the more confident you will become about branching out with less common species. Growing plants has so many benefits, providing a pleasurable hobby while adding beauty to your living space. This houseplant journal is great for beginners but also helpful as your collection grows and honing in on what is best for each new green baby you bring into the family.
