Currently still on a work trip and I always worry, not just for my Madison Rue, but also for these babies. I’ve learned from past trips though that it’s always better to under-water then overwater so I’ve stopped asking someone to water or spritz my plants while I am away. 🌱
The baby Alocasia ‘Amazonica’ has finally unfurled. 💚💚💚
Although, I am both excited and sad because I found out that the other, older leaf on my Alocasia is starting to brown. My dreams of having a full pot of ‘Amazonicas’ is definitely still a long way to go. 🙁
And oh, those are my rehab bottles behind the Alocasia. I am using re-purposed jars so they don’t necessarily look pretty but they are sustainable.
Tradescantia zebrina’s initial allure, for me, is its interesting zebra-like stripe and the purple color underneath. This is my second pot, made from cuttings from my first pot which has gone unruly & dry. They’re very easy to care for, though they like bright to indirect bright light (trust me, I tried to place this in our bathroom with a small window & they all died!😂) #trailingthingstuesday#tradescantiazebrina
Prayer plants are known for the amazing print on their foliage and brightly colored under leaf. It’s leaves move throughout the day and will rest upright at night, like hands in prayer position. 💚 It’s an ideal beginner plant, that requires minimum care.
Place in a bright but filtered or shaded spot with no direct sunlight. Loves high humidity so misting regularly helps. And water with *filtered water regularly, keep the soil moist but not never soggy.
*Filtered water is suggested for watering because our tap water contains high volumes of chlorine for this type of family. Chlorine will cause brown tips and eventually falling out of its leaves. In nature, they sit beneath big trees of the rainforest meaning they get filtered sunlight and pure rainwater and high levels of humidity. Best chance to keep your plant happy is by mimicking its natural habitat. ☺️
