I love to have green plants, especially indoors, but I am not good at maintaining them. (Have you heard about Indoor Plant Serial Killer?) This page will keep a record of my plant's maintenance and cultivation.
- Water thoroughly (check by finger or lifting)
- Clean the leaves from dust, debris
- Check the light requirement and place it with an adequate amount of light!
Pothos (Devil's Ivy)
Everyone said this is an easy one but the one I have dried out. I pruned a few stems right before the death and propagated them using the water method.
- Love humid (but not soaking wet)
- Rainforest plants so make larger leaves in a warm, humid environment
- Love to climb
- Grow roots into the bark so that the plant can have some moist
- Use a hook or hairpin to put the vine into the pot so that the plant can have a denser look.
- Propagation: Cut the vine (the little nubs become roots), water, or soil
I got some baby cutting and potted it.
- Love dry (water when it fully dries)
- Okay with indirect sunlight, but a boost in direct sunlight
- Propagation: water, soil, divide, cut a leaf from the near base or separate in 5cm
My in-law's favorites. I knocked over one of the pots, and the leaves fell. So I am trying to propagate them using the water.
- Love dry
- Propagation: cut the leaf, water, or soil.
Peperomia Obtusifolia (Baby Rubber Plant)
I bought it a long time ago. It just went well without care. It survived in low light, but I'm not sure it is ideal for this plant.
- Propagation: cut the leaf, vine, or separation
We had a big one in the front yard, and it fell this summer due to the high wind. I pruned all the stems just in case. I will propagate those stems at some point next year.
- Propagation: cut the steam, dry, then put it into the soil
Calatheas (Peacock Plant)
Currently, the peacock one looks very weird, so I need to do more research on that.
