Monstera is still a little sparse but re-growing 2️⃣ from the vines I cut. Also, regarding aerial roots: 3️⃣ if you find them unsightly, just trim them - they'll also grow back. ~ ~ #monstera #monsteradeliciosa #monsteramonday #outsidein #houseplantclub #greenfingers #houseplants #indoorplants #plantlove #plantstagram #urbanjunglebloggers #houseplantjournal #plants #tropicalplants #aroidaddicts #aroid #leaflove #boyswithplants #plantcare #plantobsession

Yesterday, my friend Dave @davesairplantcorner returned to pick up his air plants and he gave me this one as a gift. I have no idea what it's called but I knew it would look perfect in this glass thing. - What is this glass thing? I found it at an antique market - the guy selling it told me it was used in the dairy industry. Since most of the piping was metal and opaque, a few glass joints would allow workers to see if milk was flowing through. Now it houses my most prized air plants! ~ ~ #airplantlove #tillandsia #airplants #teamtillandsia #plantdad #plantdecor #homestyle #houseplantjournal #plants #greenthumb #plantstyling #houseplantclub

Peace lily isn't happy with this new standard of compact sink. - Does the thought of completely soaking your soil cause you to fear "overwatering"? Read the article (link in profile) and be en-LIGHT-ened 🌿 ~ ~ #peacelily #spathiphyllum #indoorplants #plantlife #urbanjunglebloggers #houseplantclub #plantstyling #houseplantjournal #plants #greenthumb #greenery #plantdad #plantdaddy #botanical #plantcare #plantobsession

Observe how the flowers whip around in a desperate attempt to chase the light. From an evolutionary perspective, it makes sense that pollinators would see the flowers most clearly if they faced the light. Also notice how they didn't open until the sun was shining on the window whereas the leaves opened approximately in sync with the day length. Time lapse reveals so much #plantmagic 🌿📷⌚ ~ ~ #oxalis #oxalistriangularis #plantdaddy #containerplants #plantsarefriends #timelapse #livingwithplants #plantaddict #グリーンのある暮らし #plantobsession #plantsathome #植物のある暮らし #instaplant #観葉植物 #planttherapy #植物 #식물 #houseplants #indoorplants

Of course I had to bring over one of my fav propagation vessels! 2️⃣ They are interconnected so you're filling up all 5 with water at the same time. - FAQ: I bought it in the clearance section of The Kleinburg Nursery (now closed) ~ ~ #philodendron #philodendronfriday #houseplants #plantlove #foliage #indoorplants #plantlife #urbanjunglebloggers #houseplantclub #plantstyling #houseplantjournal #plants #propagationstation #plantpropagation #plantobsession #plantaddict #vase

Here's a 22-day time lapse of a frond growing on my Davallia fejeensis (Rabbit's foot fern). Among the myriad of fascinating observations here, my favourite is seeing the growth stall when the plant got thirsty only the resume the moment it got watered (yes, I watered it twice during the time lapse). - Special thanks to @houseplantgal for lending me your windowsill for 22 days! ~ ~ #rabbitsfootfern #davalliafejeensis #fern #plantmagic #timelapse #livingwithplants #plantaddict #グリーンのある暮らし #plantobsession #plantsathome #植物のある暮らし #instaplant #観葉植物 #planttherapy #植物 #식물 #houseplants #indoorplants #oddlysatisfying #plantaddict

#tillandsiatuesday - I hate to play favoritism but this glass candle holder with driftwood base (found it in Bali) only has space for one air plant. - 2️⃣ Other tectorum looking on with envy - I'm plant sitting these tectorums for @davesairplantcorner so expect to see them styled for several shots... ~ ~ #houseplants #airplants #airplantlove #tillandsia #homedecor #airplantsofinstagram #airplant #plantdecor #driftwood #plantlove #urbanjunglebloggers #houseplantclub #houseplantjournal #plantstyling #plantsathome

Monstera deliciosa will naturally grow outwards as vines. Keep them organized by affixing them to a sturdy trellis - look closely for the light green structure in the middle of this mess.
