House Plant Haul | Calathea , Peperomia & More


As we've been in the House a lot more lately I have taken my love for all things succulents and indoor plants to create a little nook in our spare room full of my house plants that I have been growing in this post I will be telling you what I use to keep these plants looking healthy during the winter months  
Firstly the main thing you need for all of these houseplants is Distilled water as it has no chlorine the chlorine that is in water harms the healthy growth of new leaves and does cause yellowing and browning in the leaves i purchase my distilled water in 5 litre bottles at Bunnings 
I do use a water meter that i found from Amazon i always check my plants daily to make sure they are looking healthy 
plus i use a diffuser a few times a day misting the plants helps as well that is what has helped me with 
the houseplants 

The Calatheas 
These plants come in all different colours and variations these can be very temperamental you will know right away if something is wrong with your plant they need to be checked daily my diffuser runs at 180 minutes about 3 times a day to make sure they are getting to adequate humidity they need
