  Project Coordinator, Cyril’s favourite plants are mostly aroids like the Monstera deliciosa and Rhaphidophora tetrasperma. He says, styling plants to fit a particular look or mood can be fun. Most of his plants are in terracotta pots and some are in plastic pots which allows him to change their cache pots for a different look. Mixing “thriller filler spiller” plants in shelves or planters creates texture and a more cozy and warm space.

When caring for plants, Cyril ensures that he spot checks his plants at least once a day. He doesn’t stick to a strict watering schedule, instead adjusts according to the plant’s current needs

Cyril says: “The common cause of plants dying is overwatering. Stick your finger in the soil or use a moisture meter if you feel fancy. A lot of factors need to be considered including but not limited to, light requirements, soil type, type of plant be it a tropical one or a succulent/cacti etc.”
