This cutie was easy + cheap and now I feel real fancy...
Lately, I've been on quite a plant kick. I bought a gorgeous lipstick plant that's now in a burnt-orange yarn plant hanger (what else do you call em???). My husband gave me a beautiful, soft purple mini rose bush. And now this little babe just joined the family for only $7.
This plant loves medium light and likes a consistently moist soil. We picked it because it's pet friendly!!! A.K.A when Luna decides to eat half of it in the middle of the night, no problem... I will NOT be picking up kitty vomit. Here's how to repot this adorable fern:
1. GATHER YOUR SHIT
I bought this 4 inch maidenhair fern at Bachman's for $4.99. I also found this adorable 4.3 inch terra cotta pot and saucer for only $1.28. Whaaaaaaaaa??? If you're a plant person, you know how expensive pots can be. I personally love the look of terra cotta, so I'm all in. Oh, and don't forget a good quality potting soil. I always recommend organic, especially if you've got pets or tiny humans around. And don't skimp out on the soil, cause your plant will know...
2. SOIL IT UP
Put a light layer of soil on the bottom of the pot, but don't go too crazy or your baby plant won't fit.
3. EASY DOES IT
Gently sneak your plant out of the plastic pot. Sometimes I crinkle the pot a little to help it come out, but don't pull on the plant too much or you'll damage it.
4. PUT IT IN
Set your plant right in that pot and tuck some soil along the sides. Gently firm the soil down, leaving some space between the top of the soil and the rim of the pot. That way when you water it, you'll avoid spilling over. FAIR WARNING: this will get messy.
5. LOOK AT HOW CUTE IT IS
Find a fancy place to put it and you're set! I added these (super-cheap, bought em at goodwill for like 99 cents) books for a little dimension.
Oh yeah, water it every once in a while, ok?
p.s. can I just say how difficult it is to take pictures of yourself? well, it is...
