Now lets go forward and discuss how we can now start enjoying our succulents, which brings a whole new meaning behind Succulents In The City. All the plant care, maintenance and watering is only for their needs. NOW – let’s talk about playing with them and actually enjoying them.
** NB: You can’t leave them in their stylish nook of your home all the time, but when entertaining, certainly take advantage of popping them in various places!
La Salle De Bain X The Bathroom:
Bathrooms are fairly predictable. Powder rooms have a mirror, sink and toilet. The main bath typically has a shower/bath and the same. I would recommend using your smaller species such as the singular haworthia or the cacti of your choosing! However, as you might have a porcelain or ceramic base, I would recommend throwing a coaster or simple cocktail napkin as to not scratch your counter top.
La Chambre X The Bedroom:
Bedrooms are cozy and places of sleep and Netflix. Bedrooms have typically three available corners, the fourth being the unavailable door. I would recommend using your larger potted plants such as the sansevieria in the corners as they are low light and fairly contained. Sansavaria or ‘mother-in-laws tongue’ or ‘snake plant’ will only ever grow upwards not like the stupid philodendron selloum which i’m tempted to throw off the balcony due to it’s imposed/entitled to more space than I ways.
La Cuisine X The Kitchen:
In my first post, I noted that the philodendron – the leafy ivy looking one – is most commonly found on kitchen sills or front hall counters! I have placed mine in a nook on a shelf allowing it to cascade down at it’s on volition like Rapunzel seeking out her Prince Charming. The backsplash of sinks are also ideal spots for smaller plant pots as otherwise they are fairly boring. As a side note, my fiancé uses a larger beaker for his spatulas and whisks and quite fittingly, there is a smaller beaker that I am in the process of propagating baby monstera steams next to it! YAY – NEW FREE PLANT SOON!
Le Séjour X Living Room:
This is where the large suckers belong. The outdoor planters that have been brought in for the purpose of ‘cheap furniture’ and space fillers in our new home that has yet to fully be furnished. The Monstera Delicosa, the Philodendron Selloum and the largest sansavaria proudly stand on display in our living room.
La Salle Á Manger X Dining Room:
Not that I have a dining room, something saved for the home dweller, my dining room table is always exhibiting a medium size plant. This is an excellent location for you to show off your unique plant pot finds from the likes of Dynasty or a flee market where you found some mid-century modern steal!
Evénements Spéciaux X Special Events:
Most recently, my mother and I used succulents as a thank-you gift at my engagement party. I hand picked each and everyone and also repotted all 40 succulents!I thought it would be nice to give everyone a piece of something that represents a part of me. More importantly it allowed for me to share my passion for succulents with everyone around me you know create some buzz. Boy, was the reaction amazing. Instead of giving someone a little trinket I thought the life and growth within the succulents represented something so much more and its something that needs to be nourished and will grow over time. A piece of decoration that anyone can add to any nook or corner within their own home to add a touch of greenery.
Ciao for now…
