Even if for whatever reason you can’t have or don’t want a pet, for either the responsibility or maybe where you live restricts having pets, –anyone, no matter who they are can grow something wonderful that will add joy to your life and grace to your surroundings.
Do searches on Amazon, Google Play Books and your local book stores to find books that tell you what grow in your area.
If you live in a place that has really bad weather like I do in Las Vegas, Nevada that i’s hotter than a hair dryer makes you feel like you’re a human cookie in an oven and changes daily- and sometimes hourly-container gardening is the way to go.
Then if a dust storm comes through or thunderstorm, you can move the plants to another area.
Succulents are wonderful, very maintenance-free, but a very delicate kind of plant grow.
I have a stacking planter that I got on Amazon that I got from a company called Mr Stacky that gives me joy every day.
Everyday when I get up I look at the plants inside it and they bring freshness and interject a spark of life into my world.
I got my succulents shipped in from a company called FatPlantsSanDiego.com, and each plant was healthier, bigger better quality than anything I’ve seen even here in Las Vegas.
I used succulent Cactus fertilizer on them and apply it monthly. Immediately when I applied it my cacti plumped up and almost grew in size the next day; it was pretty incredible.
I added polished lapidary rocks to the top of the special succulent organic soil, and today through Amazon eighteen more cactus are coming that will go in planters that will be out on my balcony when I’m done.
This is the first place where I’ve been in quite a long time that I actually would call home.
More Coming soon folks!
I have plans here, they just take a little time to create what I envision here.
