“Once a day I like to mist them and that’s the time I check every single one.”

Favourites: I love my orchids! They grow slowly and I love finding new shoots and flower stems every now and then. It’s always a nice surprise. I also enjoy my Rubber plant and ZZ plant.


Marcelo says: 

I like to observe my plants and I water them as needed. I remove the dead leaves and branches and I’m always checking to see if there are any bugs. Once a day I like to mist them and that’s the time I check every single one.

Marcelo’s tips: 

Lighting and watering are very important and you should pay attention to that. You should give as much light as possible, respecting the plant light requirements, but you can always push a little.

As for watering, I know it can be tricky sometimes and you can kill your plant if you water too much. The finger trick is a good starter if you are not used recognizing when your plant needs water or not.
