We’ve all seen her on Instagram or secretly envied her at dinner parties; the elusive Impossibly Perfect Plant Lady. She’s the one whose home feels like a portal into the Secret Garden. Meanwhile, your plants look like you picked them up from a shelter for neglected plants. If you’re feeling personally attacked, let’s clear the air—we’ve been there. We know the struggle. However, we also know it’s possible to become the Impossibly Perfect Plant Lady in the new year. Her secret is that she keeps a plant journal—and it’s yours to steal.
Succulents. It’s hard not to know what they are in this day and age. Everywhere you look, they seem to be there—from Instagram to cookie decorations to Bobby Berk’s latest Queer Eye home makeover. And it’s easy to see why these little succas have stolen our hearts, especially coming in so many unique and interesting shapes, sizes, styles, and colors. PLUS, they’re pretty hard to kill, making them a #1 choice for arrangements and plant crafting for both green and black thumbs alike. But, even the hardest to kill need some TLC to stay alive!
