Introducing my plant children 🌿🌿🌿

One important thing to know about me is that I like plants, actually I really love plants. I got my first house plants about 5 years ago and the collection has been growing ever since. I began mostly with cacti and succulents but I'm slowly becoming more of a leafy tropical plant gal. Today I'm going to share allllll of my plants here because they are looking particularly glorious thanks to all the sun we've had, and also it will be fun to look back on and see how much they change over time. 

Old man cactus (Cephalocereus senilis)

Devil's ivy / Pothos (Epiprumnum aureus)
Hoya carnosa variegata
Cactus seedlings at 44 days old

Spider plant (Chlorophytum comosum)
String of buttons (Crassula perforata variagata)
