Woooow! Miguel!!! 😍 That is probably the most perfect Calathea I've ever seen outside of Insta! πŸ₯° You've got skills man... Plant Jedi for sure! 😊 Xx
@JenniB81 Thanks! She’s my first love in the house to be honest. Although my dream plant is stealing some of her love (my regal shields) but she doesn’t go long without my love πŸ˜‚
She's GORGEOUS! πŸ₯° is that an aglaonema to the left of her in the first pic?? That's a beauty too! I wish I had your green thumb lol... I have a teeny, tiny wee Aglaonema Red Zircon that's just sitting her first baby last since I got her! I can't wait til she's all grown up! Lol 🀣🀣 xx
@JenniB81 yes, it’s a Lady Valentine but the app changed the name. My green thumb gets called an obsession by ALL my friends apparently. Smdh… they’re too cool to care about plants. Tech bros can be annoying.
:o SO SHINY!! I just love Calatheas, they are among my very favorite plants.
@PlantJedi also, your friends are nerds too, just a different kind. :P
Nothin' wrong with being a nerd, that just means you have passion. πŸ€“
@JesssJungle Ohhh I embrace my nerdiness πŸ˜‚β€¦ They just call me obsessed like I have a problem. I think it’s just easier for them to not relate to certain things because they don’t feel good about their own passions lol
@PlantJedi ohh I gotcha! 😊 Nah, it's a healthy obsession if it's an obsession at all. There are so many worse things.
@JesssJungle I’ll share my secret with you and @JenniB81 …

neem oil & Peppermint... https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0CH2XP8KZ?ref=ppx_pop_mob_ap_share


Big Leaf Energy : RTU Wellness... https://www.amazon.com/dp/B09WFVKMH4?ref=ppx_pop_mob_ap_share


Handcraft Blends Peppermint... https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0756MBLNX?ref=ppx_pop_mob_ap_share

Soo every week… I spray Big Leaf Energy in my plants. Sick plants I use the neem oil every week… non sick every two weeks. Once a month I give all my plants peppermint oil with water in their soil. Once a month… peppermint oil humidifier spa night, I crank the humidifier up to 70 and peppermint oil is everywhere in the morning πŸ˜‚. It even clears my sinuses πŸ˜‚
@PlantJedi oh very cool.. I actually have some peppermint essential oil. Would that work? Do you put it in the water you're watering with, and what ratio should I use? Do you use it on ALL of your plants? Sorry for all the questions!! πŸ˜†

And I have neem oil for my garden that I could use for any sick plants!
@JesssJungle yeah, neem oil is also just beneficial to the plant itself… soo nonsick plants benefit from it as a preventive maintenance routine. I put one teaspoon of peppermint oil for anything 4in+ or two drops for my smaller plants. The amount of water should be insignificant. It’s just a carrier agent. Soo for my big plants I’d use 4-6 oz… And small plants 1oz. All my plants get the same preventive maintenance routine. And yes the link was a peppermint essential oil.
@JesssJungle and… always ask questions. Always willing to share
@PlantJedi thank you, that makes sense. Saving your comment for future referencing.
Wow that is a beautiful plant! I hope my little one thrives just as much 😍
@PlantJedi how’s your experience with the regal shield btw?
@JesssJungle me too!
@KinderPlants Ohhh it’s been great so far. Haven’t had any issues with her yet. She needs to be repotted ASAP tbh. Just haven’t had the time.
@PlantJedi such a beautiful plant! I ended up failing mine, it’s so hard to keep up the humidity it needs here
@KinderPlants mine is starting to show signs it wants more humidity.
@KinderPlants did she pass? I just noticed what you said.
@PlantJedi unfortunately yeah. Belgian winters weren’t kind to her. All that dry air & central heating
