I know I know, I have a problem. The rocks for soil drainage is plant care 101 I guess. Dimitri told me, and I listened but, um, I guess I just forgot? Or the thought of buying rocks and carrying them home in the summer heat was just too much to execute. Luckily this weekend was a delicious 70ish degrees in NYC and I DID ALL THE THINGS. Well by all the things I mean, I un-potted the
surviving plants, gave everyone a good layer of rock at the bottom, made a huge mess, then put the troopers back in their homes.
I also switched out the sago palm (thanks Katherine) and the other leafy plant thing. The sago palm had a crazy root situation happening and clearly I had never bothered to take him out of his grocery store plastic pot out of fear, the ‘Rooms thinks the potting process is killing them. But I think the palm in the big tall Aztec-y pot with root room will be better. The leafy thing in the gold pot with no name has about a 2″ root system, so I could pot that in a brownie pan (if I had one) and it would probably be fine. PS. Anyone know what that big leafy plant is called? I am the worst plant
I DO know that the sago palm is super duper poisonous to animals and humans alike, like kill them dead poisonous. Oops, luckily the pets have zero interest in plant matter. Kibbles only. Oh and Dolly(s)? Seems like these two little stalks are all that made it out of the jade fiasco, hopefully now that we’ve got rocks goin on in the pot, they’ll do better. Live on!
Gratuitous cat photo because its Monday and you read this whole post! Sophie’s just inspecting the donation pile here. It’s that time of year in New York Ctiy where us small apartment dwellers switch out the summer to winter / winter to summer closet clothing situation. Pro tip: It’s a GREAT time to purge and get rid of things that don’t fit and/or shit you never wear. I love this time of year because the ‘Rooms is a ruthless purger and I’ll inevitably snag a couple new sweaters.
Not on the ‘Grams? like Cubicle57 on facebook, a lot of bonus photos wind up there too, and EXCLUSIVE Caturday content.
