Last night I was going through my high school sketchbooks when I came across these. Back then I had no idea what the names of these plants were, they were just something interesting to draw for class. It was cool coming across them now and being able to instantly recognize the plant in each sketch 🤗 Hoya Hindu Rope Schefflera (I think?) Lucky Bamboo #flashbackfriday#crazyplantlady

I’ve seen a succulent terrarium for the first time 5 years ago, when we met Ameeta and Krishnendu at their place. Teeny-tiny then baby Jihaan was crawling around. I remember how soothing it felt to have dinner surrounded with all the greenery in their house. I was thrilled when Ameeta has gifted us terrarium that day, in the bowl you see in this picture. We kept it in the office, but sadly plants have withered in a few weeks. I’ve been trying to make miniature garden in this bowl ever since. But still it wouldn’t survive. Ameeta has even planted succulents in it again, but it got overwatered once when I was traveling. I added a few fresh succulents into the bowl, to go along with Sansevieria that has luckily survived. I love seeing these tiny plants bathe in the rays of morning light, like a fish in a bowl, while I leisurely sip green tea. The sight of it is very soothing, and helps to distress after a long working day. My confidence has grown after I made several more terrariums, and all of them do well. I finally got it! Though everyone says miniature gardens are self-nourishing and not demanding, there’re a few tricks that help keep succulents happy: 🌿 they love bright but indirect light. I keep my bowls next to the east facing windows but filter light with the sheers 🌿 they are comfortable in a bit porous, well-drained soil. I don’t stress myself with making it and get ready mix from the market 🌿 water succulents sparingly, the soil should be damp but not too wet. The biggest mistake I’ve ever made is overwatering, when just a little spray once a week is enough 🌿 love them and they will definitely love you back ❤️ It’s so much joy to see my terrariums thriving. I wish yours thrive too! . . . . . #terrariumdesign#terrariumlove#miniaturegarden#storiesofindia#cactilove#cactiofinstagram#sanseveria#plantsmakepeoplehappy#plantaddict#plantlove#succulents#succulentsofinstagram#gardeningtips#plantingtips#shortstories#lifeinindia#dailylifeindia#closetonature#mrssharma#plantsandthecity#pune#indianstories
