They also act as valuable bioindicators of severe pollution. In the video,Continue reading “Calming mossarium build”
Since we’ve been teetering precariously on the precipice of the scorching, dry Australian summer, I’ve had to put my terrarium dreams on hold as of late. I mean, can’t exactly go out and harvest moss on hot, sunny days. In my past setups, I’ve mainly steered clear of moss on account of believing that IContinue reading “Cost-effective terrarium building in 3 simple steps”
I recently started using grow lights because of changes in my furniture which resulted in some plants being blocked from the sunlight. They’ve been very convenient in that I no longer have to rotate my plants around to ensure that they get enough light, so they’ve cut out a lot of the work when itContinue reading “What you need to know before buying and using grow lights”

A friend of mine recently reminded me that I could write about rooting hormones on my blog. I had completely forgotten to cover them before now. I have to admit, I haven’t used them a great deal because I’ve never had any need of them (which isn’t intended to be a flex, but I supposeContinue reading “Rooting hormones”
I’m not one for the whole indoor jungle feel, but the home jungle aesthetic has certainly taken off in the past few years. As such, a lot of people like having plants all over the house, including in the bathroom. The problem with bathrooms is that they often get very little light, fluctuate in temperatureContinue reading “Top 5 plants for your bathroom”
I’ve often heard my friends say things like “I wish I could have indoor plants, but it just wouldn’t work out because I have pets.” It’s a shame that people think that they can’t have indoor plants just because they own pets, because it should never really be an ultimatum.
