Lately, I've had sudden urges to reintroduce living plants into my surroundings. My love for green, sometimes tropical, but not always, plants, dates back to my early twenties when I had my own apartment that housed eighty six plants. At that time we had a little tropical plant shop that offered a variety of unique species. I was a frequent shopper at the little plant shop. Every week, I'd visit to check and see what new and unique plants had arrived. I'd be in awe each time upon new plant discoveries, and could not wait to take the plant home, knowing he, she, would be happy in its new eighty six plant apartment.
Lately, at the apothecary shop, I've filled small empty holes with green plants. There's definitely some sort of mood enhancing mojo that associates, wraps around a healthy green living plant when it resides in your home.
Now the plump soft fir is happily residing on a shelf and flourishing as a four season plant.
This large house plant, I believe to be in the philodendron family, but I may be wrong. Ever since I placed her atop the old wood mail shelf, she's flourished. Her extra large plump leaves are mushrooming and going strong.
Yes, I seem to recognize whether a plant is male or female. It's a gift.
So my friend, if you're wishing to remedy yourself of the dullness of winter's gray skies, simply bring winter green into you space.
Note: Make sure it's above freezing when you transport you new green plant to its new home. Water her, him, and take in its wonderful green hue.
