Favourite plant: Philodendron Verrucosum

First plant: My first plant was a Fiddle Leaf Fig, which is probably everyone’s must-have houseplant. I got it from Tiong Bahru market, to mark the occasion of moving into the neighbourhood.

How has your plant hobby changed your life? It is true what everyone says — gardening is therapeutic; it gives me something to focus on and care for. It has also taught me to be patient because plants will not let you hurry them. It is satisfying because the state of your plants is directly related to how much care and time you invest into them. Horticulture has further fuelled my curiosity about the world around me and helped me to broaden my knowledge in general.
