Brace says: 

Growing plants is a beautiful depiction of nature and creation. There’s nothing more exciting than watching a cactus bloom after patiently waiting for years and years, or watching a propagation shoot out roots overnight. Either way, growing plants is an amazing process.

Brace’s tips: 

I put my plants were the light is. My Dad and I built a greenhouse outside for my cacti and succulents because they weren’t getting enough light indoors, and the houseplants are right next to the windows inside. Proper light is huge in keeping plants alive and happy in the long run.

I try to steer away from using plastic pots and rarely use any without drain holes. Nobody likes soggy soil, including your plants. Having good drainage allows you to fully water your plants, and takes away some of the worry.

As far as style goes I try to stick with earth tones and textures when it comes to pots, and I’m always looking for anything ceramic. Keeping plants well groomed and clean can make any plant look 10 times better!

Do your research! I look up care for almost every plant I own to make sure I’m giving it all the right attention.
