I’m learning to enjoy the journey 👨🚀
I struggle to see the big picture - struggle to make small daily deposits that pay off in the long term. I’d much rather feel the excitement of completing small projects and the high of immediate results.
But I know the long term projects are more rewarding. I’ve seen the compounding effect that comes after making progress every day. Over time my physique, relationships, home and business all see the benefits of small deposits each day.
So I’m making small deposits on this Thursday. And I’m learning to enjoy the journey.
Comment: what’s on your long term horizon?
To say i was a florist for 18 years i seem to have a skill for killing plants! So im really pleased that not only have i kept this money plant alive but it has also grown new leaves and ive managed to get baby plants from the leaves that fell from it when i first bought it!! 😊🌱🌾🌵💚 #moneyplant#succulents#houseplants#myhippielife#greenfingers#money
A rare #jadeplant post. 👀
I like to think I'm OK at taking care of my jungle plants, but succulents are not my thing really. This crassula has been with my since my friend gave it to me half a year ago. It was a gorgeous one and stayed that way for a long while, then it started acting up - it has dropped a lot of leaves lately, and even killed off a stalk. No, it didn't seem to rot like an over-watered palm, just kind of shriveled away. Finally I figured I'd check on the roots - instead of rotted roots I found... nothing? No. Actually the whole soil seemed to be a tightly woven root basket, the roots were just very delicate. It was dry, but smelled like mold, and on the sides was some gray fuzz that looked like it too. 😬 I figured I'd change the soil and re-pot it to a clay pot instead of plastic.
Even after I dunked the roots in water for a long moment, the inner part if the soil remained completely dry. I had to really do some damage to get any of the old soil (and sadly, half the roots) to come off the plant. Then I stuck it to it's new pot with some fresh cactus soil and perlite. This all happened about a week ago, and surprisingly the #crassula (nickname: Rahis) hasn't actually dropped more leaves or anything.
Plant-shelter ideas apart from old plastic bottles 💡
• Tender Coconut: Bio-degradable, but just in case your local vendor doesn't dispose them properly?
🍀 Or you need a pot but as plastic pots are big no use these empty shells for climbers like the money plant & shankapushpi or plants like purslane :)
_ •Old Tetra Packs: Cover them with an old plastic/polypropylene (dotted cloth-like plastic) bags if you have them as these might become soggy after excessive watering. 🍀
Tetra packs are best avoided. Reuse>Recycle. Incase you're pack isn't in a state to be re-used @saahas_zero_waste does recycle them. @rawcycle for @rawpressery drinks. .
•Old Footwear: Offsprings of the fast fashion industry, footwear are also a part of a major chunk of waste dumped. .
Shelter a plant in them. Here, old ballerina flats stapled one upon the other. You might use shoes or whatever you've got. 🍀
Think before you trash. Maybe you're throwing away a potential to-be- upcycled thingy. . .
hey p.s. (I don't drink almond milk on a daily basis. That was a huge luxury)
some people really get mad upon hanging footwear near the window still. .
I know the last picture is ugly. .
Experimenting with water & inks #honesty#moneyplant#simple . Along with Jess' palette pics. Fun few hrs with 2 of my sisters, wine & music
@cornwall2 nothing exciting.. but better than nothing at all I suppose
