This plant is a slow grower to me. No real issues but I wish it would grow for me.

Not the most straightforward at first!
My first two plants got severe root rot - which I since learned they are easily prone to.
I am trying to save them by propagation. One took off, other still needs time.
When they are doing well they are some of the most rewarding and lush plants to keep, just maybe save them for when you have a good handle on the easier plants and have your basics down with soil, pots, and root health!

Amazing beautiful plants, took one star down bc they’re not the most straightforward for beginners. Plus Greg’s advice on these to water them often is off, which doesn’t help!
They are VERY prone to root rot.
Mine have finally taken off now that they are in terracotta pots with an aerated mix, I water regularly and let dry in between.

This was a piece taken from a larger plant. I’m trying to get the roots to start growing so I can repot it. Any advice on what size container or anything else I should be doing?

Chinese evergreens a very low light tolerant and grow very quickly when given proper lightning. Gorgeous leaves, easy to care for. Beautiful plant!

I received this from my church when my step mother died. I thought it was a peace Lily. I have never had plants before and didn’t know the difference until I got this app 😆. This plant has been so easy to care for and has brought me so much joy.

Grows even in low light but will push out bigger leaves if placed in medium indirect lighting.
Well draining potting mix.
Let it completely dry

Beautiful plant that uplifts your day! Occasionally a leaf turns brown but it seems to happen as a new one appears!

One of my fave plants. When I got it, it was in rough shape. With a little TLC it’s thriving

Super easy plant, doesn’t ask for much light or water. Honestly almost killed this thing once and it’s now four years later and huge, healthy, and still growing! Perfect beginners plant

I bought mine last year and it has been one of my easiest plants to care for.
I’ve actually forgotten to water it a few times and it kept on thriving. Note: Give it bright indirect light for larger leaves and growth. Keep soil moist but NOT WET!

I love the pink in the leaves, adds color to my room. It gets pretty large so be prepared to get a bigger pot to replant.
