“My care guide for my plants are very simple, I don’t water them until absolutely necessary and feed them when required.”

Favourites: My favourite plants are always Aroids. There’s just something about the uniqueness of their foliage. I have never been attracted to flowers, the difference of tones, vein structure on Aroids really draw my attention. Currently, my top 3 favourite plants are Philodendron verrucosum, Anthurium crystallinum and Philodendron gloriosum.

Benny says:

Aesthetics is very important to me. I strive to maintain a cohesive look when it comes to my plant collection. All the pots and planters that my plants are in coincide with one another. These are natural and earthy tones. Lots of terracotta, splashes of white and a hint of blue. Something that reminds me of a forest by the beach.

If I could give one tip to share, it would be to remember to feed your plants. You need food and water to survive, not just water. So why expect your plants to thrive on water only? Have a consistent watering and fertilising schedule.

My style very much reflects the aesthetics of my plants. I love simple tones, crisp cut T-shirts and colour matching neutral tones to create a cohesive look. The blissful sounds of the jungle make me so at ease. So I’ve done my very best to create an indoor jungle. There’s absolutely nothing better than being surrounded by beautiful and lush greenery.
