  1. Nice that you shared your plant list…I think that is so useful, even if just inspiring to people far away like me! (tho I still have some of your plants, too)

    • Always nice to share :) But to be honest, it is also necessary for me….this way I can throw out the nursery tags after I enter a new plant and utilize this list as a reference if I forget any of my plant names ;) I refer to it often when I look up care instructions. – xericstyle
