I very much disliked houseplants up until adulthood. For as long as I can remember we had plants ALL over our house while I was growing up. In random pots along the staircase, multiple just sitting on the dining table, vines of pothos framing each door, canopies of plants hanging above our living room, and at one point we even had a green room, it was my mum’s little jungle oasis. But I didn’t care for it. I thought it was tacky and made our house look “busy”.
It all changed when I got my first apartment. I had furnished and decorated it, but even still it looked a bit barren. It lacked character. A few days in, my mum stopped by to drop off some food, as mums do, but this time she also came by with something else: a HUGE ficus tree that she plopped down in my living room.
It made the room come alive, and I was mesmerized.
But the plant started dying within days and I couldn’t figure out what I was doing wrong. Later I’d find out I was under-watering. Then a few weeks later it looked worse: turns out I was over-watering. I’ve learned a lot about plants since then, and I've adopted many more plants too: we now have a total over 80 plants at the PUL studio, and the collection is only ever growing. Needless to say, I’m the new crazy plant lady, with all traits inherited from my dear mother 💗

I would like to know if I can send you a picture of my struggling tropical plant(Moana) that would very much want to save. I’m a beginner to tropical plants. Help me please😬
So lovely to not just have tasty recipes and nutrition advice from PUL! I am trying to find my green thumb with yuzu seeds, but all kinds of realisations come to me: the germination process, the type of soil if seeds do germinate, the spacing between them, the water ratio, the temperature, to pot or to plant, etc. Where would you advice to start looking for advice when starting from zero knowledge?
Looking forward to not killing my plants from now on!
I love your videos. Those inspired me to be a plant mom. I started with a simple money plant. It spread through my windows and a huge part of my room. My room always looks fresh with those leaves. I love them so much . Thank you so much for inspiring me sis Sadia. Ilysm🥰🥰
You're an inspiration with your plants, thanks for sharing all these tips. I had no idea that plants like colder water in the summer and room temp. water in the winter, will give that a try. Thanks for sharing your love for botanicals, your homespace is so welcoming.
I really like these plant videos. I am trying to propagate pothos in water but the tap water in my city is very hard. So, should I use RO drinking water or the tap water will be fine?
Do you have the ivy plant and do you leave your plants to grow on your walls? Do you think that's a good idea?
Do you know of any harmful plants that may cause a rash?
I would love to hear your opinion and knowledge and I really enjoyed your plant videos!
