Weekend Update: 9/26

Back with a short weekend update, plant friends! It’s been busy lately, and I’m trying to allow myself to relax a little bit this fine Monday evening. Not much decluttering happened this weekend, but I do have intentions to better organize my fragrance collection as well as throw out some plants I don’t want anymore. […]

Weekend Update: 9/19

Hello, plant friends! I haven’t had a lot of groundbreaking weekends when it comes to my plants. Actually, I’ve been doing a good deal of ignoring them as of late. I’ll get to the good, the bad, and the ugly soon.  This weekend *did* end up being a productive one in terms of organizing my […]

Short and Simple Guide to Dieffenbachia 

Let’s talk about the dieffenbachia. For me, it’s the plant that I fall in love with over and over again whenever I look at it, but it’s also the plant that I tend to ignore. My dieffenbachia, also colloquially known as a dumb cane, has been slowly eking by over the past year, and while […]

Weekend Update: 8/29

Y’all, I have gone three weeks without acquiring new plants. Congratulations to me! I’m sure this will change once autumn makes my home more suitable to indoor plants, but for now, I’m appreciating any plant that’s displaying steady growth. Especially the big ones, like my monstera, philodendron ring of fire, and variegated rubber plant! I’ve […]

Plant Overview: Hoya Pubicalyx

Hello, plant friends! I’m back with a plant blog, but I’m going to switch up the format a little. Since I’m running out of broader categories of plants, I’m going to do deep dives on specific species of plants! They’ll be focused on one plant at a time, so they’ll be shorter and more casual. […]

A Short and Simple Guide to Money Trees

I grew up surrounded by money trees, spotting them not only during my rare trips to big-box nurseries but also in Asian homes and supermarkets. According to feng shui, they’re supposed to be lucky and bring about prosperity. Now, I’m not sure if mine has given me any luck, but it hasn’t died on me […]

Weekend Update: 8/15

This weekend passed away like a cloud of smoke. Literally, because I smell smoky air whenever I crack open a window! There are fires just half an hour away from me towards the South Bay. The crunchy air quality (yes, it is crunchy to my lungs), combined with the heat wave and the pandemic and […]

Weekend Update: 8/8

Work has slowed down to a screeching halt after a whirlwind in July, which means I’m applying to more copywriting gigs at the moment. It also means that I have more time to simmer in my thoughts. It’s almost facile to say this, but quarantine has had its ups and downs. This week was rougher […]

Weekend Update: 7/18

It’s been another low-key weekend, plant buddies! After writing up some copy, I made two short trips to the Rainforest Nursery. I’ve been into succulents and succulent-like plants lately because my plant collection is expanding, and I have a limited reserve of time and energy to deal with needy plants. (Looking at you, ferns.) The […]

Weekend Update: 7/11

The theme stuck in my mind from this last week is joy. I’m talking about the Marie Kondo staring deep into your soul and questioning if something brings you unadulterated happiness kind. (OK, Marie Kondo probably wouldn’t do this, but…I do personally find being aggressive and rigorous in the process of decluttering productive.) My mother […]
