In April, I made video documentation of my houseplant-filled apartment. I figured it would be a great way to look back and see how much has grown over the season. I wasn’t intending on sharing this (I recorded it all from my phone camera)… but after some encouragement, I pieced all the clips together and uploaded— and I’m so glad I did! I’m very proud of my indoor garden. This magical space is transforming, and now I can watch it season by season (yes, I will be making more!)
I live in a small apartment in a city (Long Beach) without access to an outdoors space, so this is my way of cultivating a peaceful green environment. It took a bit of creativity to figure out how to arrange my plants, which you’ll see in the video. I don’t have a count on the number of plants I have, but I’m certain it’s well over one hundred. I seem to have a preference for Calatheas (the Marantaceae family in general), Begonias, Ferns, and Philodendrons (and I have three Anthuriums that I absolutely love!)
If you watch my video (posted below), you’ll see.
I’ve included time markers in the video caption, by room or section (like the kitchen, or cactus area, plant shelf, and propagation station).
I hope this inspires you!
These plants are growing so fast!!
In this photo (below), you can see my Cissus discolor has started to climb my other plants, winding it’s tendrils around a Philodendron leaf and the leaves of this Oxalis. In April, when I recorded the video, it was still dormant.
I’ll be posting the next tour video in July.
