Why plants?
✧ plants improve mental health.
✧ plants add life to spaces without adding clutter.
✧ plants clean the air, reducing pollutants and toxins.

i want to reiterate that studies have proven the presence of indoor plants in a home/workspace can sharpen focus, enhance mood, and reduce stress. it even says the bigger🌿the better.
~
our innate tendency to want to connect to nature and other life forms is called #biophilia. and ironically the average american spends 90% of their life indoors, which goes against our human nature.
~
spending time outside, breathing fresh air, and bringing nature indoors is important for your mental wellbeing! also, just because you've killed a plant in the past doesn't mean you're plagued with a black thumb. all plants eventually die. it's the circle of life. i have a blog post all about housplants for beginners (link in bio). check it out.

tell me, what’s your favorite plant?! mine changes, but at the moment i love my staghorn ferns. 😊

Rubber plant propagation 💪🏼
repost from @lisamariatrauer using @repostregramapp - look at this shiny rubbertree leaf with all these beautiful and healthy roots!! 😍😍😍
it is really easy to propagate a rubberplant! cut off a leaf of the plant & put it into water. you can roll up the leaf and fix it with a rubberband! let‘s do it 💪 have a nice start into the new week!!!! 💚

This month’s #📖lostinplantopia book feature is the best we could do by thi bui. this book means so much to me - i wish i could have given it to myself as a child (representation matters!) thi writes about her family’s journey fleeing vietnam to america in the late 70s in a beautifully illustrated graphic novel. she weaves together her family history & their present day lives, while providing historical, social & political context from a critical perspective.
words can not describe how this book made me feel. i read it in one sitting and i cried & laughed as i recognized the parallels between my life & thi’s. engaging with her story encouraged me to have difficult conversations & to continue healing on my own & with my family. sometimes you need to look back in order to move forward.
storytelling & creating narratives that are representative of our lived experiences are so important. i’m glad i found this book & i hope others enjoy it as much as i did. my final reflection: i’m proud of my family & grateful for the sacrifices they’ve made 💚
