Hi there, and welcome to my blog! I am a new plant parent based in Ireland and am growing my indoor garden one (or rather multiple) plant(s) at a time.
My journey into plant parenthood started in November 2019 when I made an early New Year’s resolution to focus on growth. It started with one plant and before I knew it our apartment was turning into a mini jungle. I am so excited to share my plants and their growth with you.
Houseplants are a new love of mine. It all started after I revived a succulent that was in pretty bad shape. To be fair I plopped him down in our bathroom and forgot to care for him. But with some effort I managed to save him and he gained new life. In an attempt to add more life to our apartment and also to purify the air we breathe I started looking into acquiring houseplants. I have since welcomed 41 plants into our home and can’t imagine living without my soon to be indoor jungle.
“I grow plants for many reasons: to please my eye or to please my soul, to challenge the elements or to challenge my patience, for novelty or for nostalgia, but mostly for the joy in seeing them grow.”— David Hobson
Working and caring for houseplants have taught me so much, not just about plants (obviously), but also about myself and my own growth. Along with new growth there is also loss, with each mistake there is a lesson and with every new day there are new chances and opportunities. I look forward to a life committed to growth, with the ups and the downs. I also look forward to adding more plants to the family.
So as you might have gathered the whole idea behind #NewDayNewGrowth is to focus on growth, not just having a lot of plants in our space, but learning to keep plants alive and to let them thrive.
