Plant count: Over 150

Favourite plant: Pilea Peperomioides

Dream / Wishlist plant: My dream plants would be what’s not growable in my kitchen: generally cruciferous edibles because I don’t have the full sun conditions for that type of plant and would need to artificially create those conditions with grow lights.

First plant that kicked off your collection:Fiddle Leaf Fig, which I tried to grow three to four times and have not succeeded because they are finicky assholes. I have thankfully been successful with other foliage plants.

How has your plant hobby changed your life?: I wake up before 7.30am regardless of whether I have to be up and about that early. Basically to bring up the blinds, open the windows and to water the plants because that’s the best time to do so.
