Plant Experiment: No. 1

Let me start off by saying <I like to plant plants when I'm stressed> ..... Guess how stressed I've been lately??? hahaha. OMG. I mean, I'm not complaining! I'm always stoked to have more plant babiesss!

My Dude and I decided to just take a day and do whatever we wanted... No plans. Just "Hey how about this " type thing. So we got up and had breakfast and went to the mountains! We took ziplock bags to collect rocks and have an adventure! When we were done with being in the mountains, we went to this little thrift shop and walked around. While we were there we saw a few of these plants that WEREN'T POTTED IN SOIL! I hadn't seen this before so I thought I would give it a go! 

CHICKEN & WAFFLES

@ Pig In A Jelly Jar - SLC, Utah

We decided to go get some brunch! And we had never eaten at Pig in a jelly jar before. Best Choice. Like, HOW FREAKING DELICIOUS DOES THIS LOOK! It is BY FAR the best chicken & waffles -IN UTAH!!!- <That's an Important detail> Because we ALL KNOW who the best is... Roscoe's... hands down.... IT'S IN THE NAME...

Side Note: How freaking cute is My Boyfriend? Like, he will just collect rocks with me?!? He is always down for anything and everything! I really am the luckiest. Best Fucking Friends. <3

I have no idea if I am doing this right or not.. I literally just looked at the plants in the thrift store and went home and attempted it. They are already starting to grow more roots! I will eventually have to transplant these into bigger pots.

Tip: Always collect ROCKS! Always! Whether it be 1 or 100... You can decorate your plants or terrariums with them! :D I've always collected rocks and little pieces of nature... since I was a little babe. But eventually, I'd end up with bags of rocks that I would have to just throw away or dump my sand! I HAVE NOW DISCOVERED A WAY TO KEEP MY TREASURES!!! Collect sand from the beach, take it home and put it with a cactus! You now have a cute little plant to remember that trip! I have made so many!! Sand and rocks from my family trip to Lake Powell, Our trip with My Dad to the Grand Canyon, Rocks from my grandparent's house at Thanksgiving, etc. 


Let me know what you think!!! (: 

UNTIL NEXT TIME, LOVELIES <3

Plants on Plants on Plants!!!


Who doesn't LOVE Plants?!?! I mean, seriously!! I just want them everywhere!

Holy Moly! I am so obsessed with my shelf! Perfect for, ya know, Plants (; haha Anyways.. I have had those baskets (the ones hanging in the corner) sitting in a box for a few months now. I haven't known what to do with them. I just knew I'd be able to find them a spot... eventually!(;  I love how just one or two things will give me so much more inspiration! Kawande and I went thrifting and found a few magical things and BAM! I even find inspiration for things I already had!!(:

A lot of people think that plants are an insane amount of work... I guess some of them are crazy difficult! (Those are the ones I can't seem to keep alive!) Lol. I just figure out which ones I can or can't keep alive by trial and error! I try to choose plants that are super low maintenance. I will touch on specific plants on a separate post!


I absolutely LOVE cacti! Especially ones that grow all sorts of crazy! At the time I bought it, I had no idea this one would grow like this!!! Chikka Chikka Yeahhh! 

Honestly, Hanging Plants are my favorite way to go! Especially if you're low on space! Or need to find something to fill an awkward corner or window!!

I have hanging plants ALL over my house! If there is a stud for me to screw a hook in, I'M GONNA DO IT!!! Not even lying. Lol. Hang a plant and throw a rug under it! Or little table! or another plant... hahaha <3 

I don't have a problem, YOU DO!!! <3

Things to know about Money Trees!!!

.Things to Know About Money Trees. 


I picked this little guy up at the store, like I physically picked him up... so... I clearly had to buy it. We bonded. Lol. But I wanted to plant it in something medium sized to keep it growing a little bit. Then I'll transfer it into a bigger pot (: I have had a money tree for a little over two years now (: And it's gettin' pretty big! But this is about our new little babe! 

Isn't it the cutest?! I thought I'd plant it in a GOLD pot cause... You know... the whole Money thing... (; The first money tree I got was from IKEA! And it was already pretty huge!!! I got it for like $10!!! It was a total steal for sure! 

We could play "I Spy" haha! I Spy with my little eye a wizard!! Or... Maybe a Baby dice... How about a knight?... What about a baby deer??? I usually just buy something if I like it, then find a place for it later on! But I feel like it all somehow flows!! (: 


-Tips & Tricks-

  • Brown Crispy Leaves are a sign of dry air or low light levels. Move it to a spot where it gets a good amount of sun(indirect)
  • If you're not used to having plants, I would suggest getting a pot that has a hole at the bottom for drainage!(: 
  • Don't put next to heating//AC unit. It likes temperatures around 60-75°F/16-24°C
  • Water thoroughly, but let enough drain out so it doesn't get soggy and moldy! 
  • Wait for the soil to get pretty dry before watering again! 
  • The size of the tree can be controlled by the size of its pot. If you want to keep it the size of a bonsai, keep its pot small!
  • It can get up to 10 ft tall if you keep transplanting it into bigget pots!!(This is hopefully what this little guy will do)
  • Avoid getting water on the trunk, it causes stem to rot
  • Water less frequently in the winter time. It's not in a growth cycle.

OH MY GOODNESS!!! It looks so darling! This is a view in my kitchen! Another thing... I am obsessed with mirrors! I want them EVERYWHERE!!! It will open up any room!! I swear!! Do it!!! This mirror was $7 at Savers (; So, it's totally affordable! Ps. I will FOREVER be obsessed with my front room!!! Sorry 'bout it!(;
