It was a goal last year to build a living wall (plant backdrop) and today I can say that it has finally come full circle. Yay!! It’s nothing fancy but a combo of turtle vines, wandering dew, pothos and months of watering.
Another dream came true after another, I also now have a Calathea White Fusion, after a year of hesitation and self doubt, the queen of the prayer plants, the diva of all is now on my collection. And what a way to flaunt its beauty but to have a photo taken with my living wall.
I have so much love for Calatheas, it never fail to fascinate me; from its vivid undersides, to the work of art like foliage. They have a reputation to be the diva plant but believe me, speaking from a year of experience (Kala mo expert?!) once you get to learn to truly love and care for them, love keeps coming back.
I never thought I could be this patient and nurturing till I started taking care of these finicky plants. Too challenging yet rewarding and fulfilling. The kind of love that builds you up and helps you grow as a person.
Love begets love, indeed.
At this point, I now have 20 varieties of Calathea and they are all equally beautiful in my plantmomma eyes. 🥰
I ofcourse have a favorite but I won’t tell. ✌🏼😂 But can you guess what it is?!
