Inside Garden Update! Part 2

Here is a look into my inside garden that I’ve been growing since moving in last year. A few weeks ago I showed you the slew of new plants that I’ve added and an update on my old plants so today is all about how I choose to decorate my inside garden this year! I have my garden organized into 3 different parts of the apartment, first my kitchen window, my front room and Victor’s office.  I am running outta space around the house now as we don’t have many sunny areas but I love the little spurts of green and feel like they add so much to our apartment. Hope you enjoy the look into my little garden!

I bought 3 small air plants so I have one larger bowl for two of them and a smaller bowl for the other. I filled them with seashells and rocks and positioned the air plants like they were coming out of the shells. Because I need to take them out once a week to soak in water I made them very accessible.

I wanted to get the vines higher up because they were growing down to the ground so I bought some fabric plant hangers and installed hooks on the ceiling. I wanted to create a curtain effect of vines because we don’t have any blinds or curtains on the window because we enjoy being able to look outside and all the light. I just love how it looks with all the different heights and think it’ll look great when the newer vines grow down. We did have 5 hangers with vines but we had a causality (the lemon licorice vine seems to reject getting replanted and died right away).  I think it looks magical especially with all the different colors. The one big issue is the higher plants are really hard to water, if you have any tips for that let me know in the comments.

I even have one of my tattoo Hello Kitty Easter eggs resting in the soil of the umbrella plant. I brought in a little tower I was using last year for herbs inside to put beside the table to hold my succulent that doesn’t need as much light and my garden gnome friend! The bottom shelf even holds all my gardening supplies which is super handy. The pink quill has flowered twice already and it just makes me smile so much, I think I’ll have to pick up more flowering plants next year because I love it so much. The flowers disappear after 2 days but the purple contrasting with all my green foliage it beautiful while it lasts.
