I became an official plant mom! Having house plants is no news during the pandemic, but this is my first time I actually bought plants! All the plants that I had before this (pothos, succulent, and an unknown one) were gifted to me and propagated by me.
Of course the night I bought them, I stayed up researching how to take care of them. I bought them from a local neighbor using the Nextdoor app (this isn't sponsored, just like to share when I believe in something). Of course beware of giving address details since these people are nearby in your neighborhood, but I wanted to say that it is amazing how technology can connect us in this way and it does feel safe when using this app.
I wanted to share some things that I learned about these two plants, a Monstera Deliciosa and Maranta Green.
I'm so happy to see a new leaf growing on the monstera already! If you have anymore plant care tips for beginners like me, please leave them in the comments!
