    my cousin has a few methods for grafting them to trees and wood fixtures I'm quite curious about. I love the idea of living art. @_@

    I'm quite fascinated by carnivorous plants; I'm researching terrariums given the abundance of flying insects and humidity in m climate, I would very much be curious as to whether or not they will flourish...

    Oyster mushrooms are carnivorous. Just a nerdy tidbit I thought interesting.

    Orchids do best in wood chip medium in a pot that allows for airflow to their root system. They should be thoroughly water once weekly by either running water on them and letting it flow through for several moments, or by submerging the pot into water and allowing the chip to hydrate that way.

    Don't ever use the ice cube method. It's not enough, and these are tropical plants... so don't use icy water.

    I unintentionally kill plants. Which is sad because I love nature. It’s just better if I love it in a hands off way.
    There is no mysterious essence we can call a 'place'. Place is change. It is motion killed by the mind, and preserved in the amber of memory.

    You and me both.

    A ponytail palm has been the best plant I’ve had so far. Very easy maintenance. Took a decade for me to kill.

    Chase the adventure. Cherish the joy.

    I haven't killed any, but I prefer to let them take care of themselves, outside... which is why my yard is the least manicured on the street. lol But also why I have wild sunflowers in the backyard.

    Aesthetically how some of my plants are organized/placed is not my ideal, as I've had to move a lot of things around with the new kitten to try to get most of it inaccessible to her.

    My 'tips' re plants are just that almost all of my plants are succulents or cactus, thus I only water them every couple of weeks / not on a schedule - I just water them when I think it's been awhile. One has to be careful not to *overwater* these guys, though - years ago the roots of a jade rotted out because I ended up giving it too much water. So far my current jade is doing ok after several years.

    I do have some choleus though which I water every 2-3 days but they are tolerant of over-watering too. (They are plants that you can almost always have success in cutting a stem, letting it root in water, and then plant in soil after the root has formed in water. I've also had success putting the cutoff directly into soil but though I've had success in doing this, I know others have not)
