All time favourite Houseplant Book | Plantopedia by Leaf Supply

18 February 2021

Houseplant books are a must have for my growing collection of houseplant babies I just love being able to pick up one of my houseplant books and see all the information inside for each individual plant 
this one by Lauren Camilleri & Sophia Kaplan of  Leaf Supply has to be my ultimate favourite plant book to date 
The amount of information inside this book makes it so easy to understand the care for each house plant i also love that it has a few ribbon inserts to place as a guide for where i was last reading each page has loads of information on soil requirements light & water also they show what houseplants are easy to care for and what ones that can be harder to care for.
Also this book gives me more inspiration to buy other houseplants as well there other two books Leaf Supply & Indoor Jungle are both really amazing informative books as well this one is more like a Dictionary of Houseplants 
Whats one of your favourite Houseplant's

You can't go wrong with a neutral eyeshadow palette the going coconuts palette by colour pop has the perfect colour story to it you can create any type of eye look with this little cutie

The Flower beauty Lip duo's have been one of my favourite lipsticks for a few years now they are so rich in pigment and smooth on the lips the gloss is a nice soft gloss it isn't too sticky which is what i love for a gloss " my lipstick that is my hands down favourite is honey nude "

My House Plants | Care for Summer

1 January 2021

Since i began my Houseplant collection last year this is my houseplants first humid Sydney summer so I've been very particular with how I take care of these plant babies the first thing I love to do is keep my misting to a minimum of 2 times a week I use rain water to help with the plants as it has natural minerals and no chlorine 
Some of these have grown so much during the summer weather its been really lovely to see them all blooming new leaves 

A good spray of neem oil & a good houseplant food is perfect for the house plants i use the plant runner food for my houseplants you need to add water to a shaker bottle add 2 drops of the houseplant food serum and shake the bottle 
I use my diffuser at least once every second day just to keep the plants nice & moist but not soaking wet also good lighting is essential for house plants I have mine west side of our window area so they get a nice amount of sun but not too much heat from our sun in Sydney 
I keep a plant meter on hand at all times to keep a check on how the plants are going if they are having the proper amount of light & water
