Hiatus over!

I’m back! I’m back! I do apologize for the month-long hiatus. Life has been absolutely nuts recently. My husband, once a UK citizen, has now moved here to Canada to wait out the rest of the processing time for his Canadian permanent residency application, and I went to help him pack up and say goodbye...

G&T Anyone? Sowing a lemon seed.

As I’ve written about in the past, I enjoy watching plants grow. I particularly enjoy watching them develop into maturity from a teeny tiny baby plant stage. That’s why usually, if the option is there, I prefer buying smaller versions of the plants I want, and why I love propagation so much. It’s also why... Continue Reading →

Adventure to: Belgian Nursery

Happy Wednesday, Plant Parents! This week I’d like to try something a little different. Its something I had been planning to do ever since I started writing this blog, but for one reason or another never got around to doing. It’s going to be a semi-regular type of post that I will try to do... Continue Reading →


I have become obsessed with propagation. I’d say at least 25% of the surface area of my front room and hallway has been taken up by currently rooting, or already potted up propagations of plants I already owned, or clippings I have acquired from fellow Plant Parents. I’m doing some water propagation and some soil.... Continue Reading →

Womp, womp…

Today’s post isn’t going to be a long one, and here’s why: If you recall, I have rambled on in the past about how houseplants have helped to relieve some of the effects of my multiple mental health issues. All through January I was feeling fairly confident. I hadn’t had any majorly bad breakdowns, and... Continue Reading →

The Graveyard Post vol. 2

I woke up this morning to a winter wonderland. Wet fluffy snow has blanketed the landscape. It truly looks beautiful— from indoors. Later, when I have to go into work for a meeting, I won’t be warbling on about how lovely it is anymore. But you’ve clicked on this link for another reason. You were... Continue Reading →

The Graveyard Post vol. 1

It’s January. That’s all. That’s the whole post. See you next week. Just kidding. It is January though, and that’s really enough to sum up my thoughts. The nights are still long, and they’re getting colder. The weather in Canada is really settling into winter misery. The house full of tropical plants I own are... Continue Reading →

Low buy January &February

I’m going to be taking a step back from collecting for the months of January and February. In Canada these months tend to be quite harsh, which makes exposure when transporting them home more of an issue. I’m also planning to focus my efforts on keeping my current collection alive and thriving. Things like pests,... Continue Reading →

Begging forgiveness!

I'm so sorry everyone! I've been enjoying the week I have with my husband here from the UK and have not had the time nor inclination to write a post this week. You'll be happy to know I already have next week's post written and scheduled to go up next Wednesday. For the time being,... Continue Reading →
