I’m sure you guys have done this before…if not, do it. It’s fun and everyone’s doing it. 😉
Take common houseplant-the Philodendron, you know the one…the one that is at every dentist,bank, doctor’s office waiting room, office desk…the one that is hearty. You’ll know it when you see it.
So, take a little snippet from the end of it, stick it in a pretty vase/jar/wine bottle/beer bottle…and fill it with water.
In a little bit, you will see a tiny root appear like this:
see it? how exciting. A free plant.
I’ve been on a houseplant kick lately…I have others than Philodendrons, and I should give y’all a botanical tour one day…
But when I have a hankering to have a new plant, and I don’t happen to have any loot to play with…this is what I do.
You can get free plants from a lot of species, violets, succulents, woody stemmed items…(rosemary is awesome to do)
Free stuff is fun.
This is the one I started the other day, I so love that container…it was a Goodwill find. Yep- I am a total Goodwill shopper. There are some treasures there. It’s like a garage sale store with no haggling. That’s just fine because I am terrible at haggling. Flea market sellers love me, because I’m always saying; “How much is this? Okay, I’ll take it.” Instead of “How much is this? I’ll give you a dollar.” Anyway, Goodwills rock. Go visit one. No, they’re not paying me to say that. I just think y’all should go out and explore…there is so much mass produced stuff at retailers-it’s nice to find that unique item nobody else has….for instance:
check ouy the copper kettle- ($3.09 ) and the blue vase (.79 )Heck…can’t beat that.
And this charming little cut glass number:
Another treasure for $1.49. Ooo, and check out that little root system. That’s a free plant there.
Like I said, free things are fun.
thrifting is the best 🙂 i also love free seeds/plants! around the area we use to live in late feb they would hold a seed/plant swap everyone brought in seeds in packets with the names on them and or seedlings in lil cups 🙂 lots of fun!
u r inspiring me..
We love going to goodwill….I find a lot of great food props there. 😉
Thanks for this tip! I just told my hubby the other day that I wanted to find some way to grow plants that wouldn’t allow me to KILL them right away! This should work just fine! And it’s so pretty!
