I'm excited to finally capture a leaf unfurling on my monstera. The I started last week when the leaf was still mostly inside the sheath. Today the leaf is partially unfurled (photo). I'm guessing by next week, the leaf will be fully open! - Inspired by the Monstera deliciosa unfurling time lapses I've seen by @sacredelements @plantingpink @jrlefrancois @homebyfousna đŸ“·âŒšđŸŒż ~ ~ #monstera #monsteradeliciosa #monsteramonday #leaflove #leafstrokers #plantlove #foliage #indoorplants #plantlife #urbanjunglebloggers #houseplantclub #plantstyling #houseplantjournal #plants #unfurling #plantobsession #houseplants

In my new place, the plants got furniture before the humans. - Plant: Sansevieria japonesa (or Fernwood?) - Plant furniture: mini planter coverlet by @rt1home; plant stand found in Singapore at @fareastflora - đŸ“·2ïžâƒŁ: August 2018 đŸ“·3ïžâƒŁ: July 2014 (yes, same nursery pot; repotted into same pot once) ~ ~ #sansevieria #snakeplant #torontoigers #torontoblogger #houseplantjournal #plants #urbanjunglebloggers #houseplantclub #plantstyling #plantstand #plantlove #foliage #indoorplants #plantlife

One of the tricky parts of doing a leaf-growth time lapse is the orientation of the leaf once it has unfurled - for this Philodendron 'Prince of Orange', it would have been nice to have the leaf open up facing the camera. Instead it ended up being practically edge-on...oh well, I'll try again! - Time lapse duration: 13 days ~ ~ #philodendron #philodendronprinceoforange #plantmagic #timelapse #iamaplanthoarder #livingwithplants #plantaddict #グăƒȘăƒŒăƒłăźă‚ă‚‹æšźă‚‰ă— #plantobsession #plantsathome #æ€ç‰©ăźă‚ă‚‹æšźă‚‰ă— #instaplant #èŠłè‘‰æ€ç‰© #planttherapy #怍物 #ì‹ëŹŒ

Thanks for your votes on the pot color for my Stephania venosa. I think the usual pot that's paired with a caudex is a dark terracotta or charcoal color so I suppose people wanted to see it in a different style. Until some foliage grows, I'll just photograph it in front of some showy calatheas - đŸ“·2ïžâƒŁ I threaded a fishing line through the base of the pot for... - đŸŽ„3ïžâƒŁ ...ease of servicing: I wanted the rim of the nursery pot to sit just below the container but still be able to easily lift it out for watering. Problem solved! ~ ~ #houseplants #caudiciform #caudex #calathea #calathealancifolia #calatheaorbifolia #plantlove #foliage #houseplantclub #plantstyling #houseplantjournal #plants

First visit to my monstera as a married couple #monsteramonday - FAQ: plant is lit by a west facing door (seen in photo) that gets a few hours of direct sun and a large north facing window (off screen to the right). At this light level, I can safely pour in about a liter and a half of water each week when I see this plant at church. Monsteras grow as vines so what you are seeing here is 7 vines tied together against a sturdy metal trellis (they're not rooted against the trellis). I've had this monstera for 4 years - for the full story, find the monstera post on my blog at www.houseplantjournal.com 🌿 ~ ~ #monstera #monsteradeliciosa #outsidein #botanicalwomen #houseplants #plantlove #foliage #indoorplants #plantlife #urbanjunglebloggers #houseplantclub #plantparenthood #houseplantjournal #plants #greenthumb

Appreciating new growth on my Starfish Sansevieria - (đŸ“· 2) one year ago, the baby was but a single sprout! Happy #sansevieriasunday 🐍🌿 - FAQ: pot is from @dynastytoronto, there is no drainage hole but I prefer it that way so water doesn't get onto the shelf. Look closely and you'll see the plant is potted in a plastic nursery pot, which I prefer for moisture control. I can remove the inner pot and water it at the sink. "No drainage hole" is not a problem when light is right and roots are working. ~ ~ #sansevieria #sansevieriaboncel #imaplanthoarder #succulentsunday #houseplants #plantlove #foliage #indoorplants #plantlife #houseplantclub #houseplantjournal #plantstagram

đŸŽ„ 1) recorded over several weeks in April 2018. I only caught the first two blooms. - đŸ“· 2) August 2018: the phalaenopsis was in full bloom about a month ago and currently on display near the dining table. - đŸ“· 3) I estimate that by the end of September, the white blooms will have fallen off, at which time the plants will be returned to their grow space - patio doors facing west. Then we can select a different orchid to bring down for display - the orchid rotation system 😁🌿👌 ~ ~ #houseplants #plantlove #orchid #phalaenopsis #bloom #blooming #flower #fleur #blume #timelapse #houseplantclub #plantstyling #houseplantjournal #plants #greenthumb

Plants: Aloe x nobilis (mother and repotted pups) - Although I enjoyed the pink/orange blush, I expect the entire plant to de-stress and become fully green again in a week or two. - đŸ“· 2) this pup had a fan-like structure, unlike the rosette structure of the mother plant - excited to watch it grow... - These office plants were skillfully separated and repotted by @houseplantgal (with my guidance of course 🌿) ~ ~ #aloe #aloexnobilis #succulents #succulove #succulentsofinstagram #houseplants #indoorplants #plantlove #plantstagram #indoorgarden #greenthumb #terracotta
