silver philodendron


Some helpful info for anyone looking to get into bioactive. Those little pothos and philodendron plants at Walmart are essentially a ton of cuttings stuffed into one pot. If you don’t mind spending some time untangling them, you can essentially get 5 to 7 plants for about $3.

It’s a good idea to bare root plants from big stores anyways, especially if you’re going to introduce them into an enclosed ecosystem. Who knows what’s gotten in that soil while they were hanging around in the garden section. Plus you can spread them out a bit if you’re just repotting them as a houseplant and they’ll be much happier.

September 23, 2015 - I’m so glad that 4001 of you Tumblr people have allowed me to fill your newsfeed with my plant photos and thoughts - thank you all! Over a year ago, when I started blogging about plants, I decided that Tumblr was the best for this due to its flexibility of creating photo sets, saving drafts, scheduling posts, and being mobile/desktop friendly. 

I’ve now expanded to YouTube and Instagram - I would be delighted if y’all could subscribe/follow me there too…you won’t be disappointed :)

If you dont mind me asking, about how long did it take for your philodendron to get as long as it was?


Top images: taken September 3 and October 31, 2015

I have a skylight that tilts towards the south so I’m getting a maximum of about 200 foot-candles on that hallway everyday (that’s very bright for indoors) so this helped the plants grow quickly.
