Green Grove by “Gigi”
Garden description: Growing House plants is the closest way to bring home a feel of living with nature. In my tiny apartment, I’ve tried to make sure I see a little bit of green anywhere I look – from the kitchen to the living room and even my bathroom 😇
Who are the gardeners: My husband and I are from India and we have large rice fields and coconut groves along with vegetable patches by our house. We love plants and keep growing and propagating more and more plants.
Why do you garden: There’s no greater joy than watching plants grow and propagate.
How has gardening impacted you during this time: It’s been our biggest source of happiness. Every little new succulent baby or ivy leaf makes our day.
What do you have in your garden? Succulents – Echeveria, Sedum, Cacti, Mother of Millions, Jade, Woody Jade, Snake plant, Aloe vera, rattail, Christmas tree plant. Ivy – Pothos and more Pothos Others – 2 varieties of Dracaena
Do you have any problems with disease or pests? If so, how are you dealing with this problem? We had a lot of trouble with spider mites but neem oil spray really helped. One Pothos (Devil’s Ivy) pot also had fungus gnats. But re-potting and spraying ginger water helped and now all is great.
