Favourites: My favourite plants are definitely my Ficus elastica and Monstera deliciosa, mostly because these were my first ever plants and I have had them a good few years now. I fell further in love with them after having seen their natural beauty in the wild.


Joshua says: 

I try to water little and often and feed my plants with basic houseplant fertiliser once a month through summer and just minimal water through winter. They both like the same bright indirect light which, if I’m honest, in the uk next to a window is fine, as the sun is never that intense and it is mostly cloudy most of the year!

With regards to styling I love having a variety of plants, to admire all the different leaf colours and sizes.

Joshua’s tips: 

If you live in the United Kingdom and your plant isn’t doing too well, it will most likely be either over watering or not enough light. Always place up against a window and not in the corner of a room, if you’re a true plant lover you will put the plant first and not your interior design. (I sometimes rearrange my plants when guests come over and then put them back once they’re gone.)
