When you grow small house plants, you don’t have to worry about the biggest problem that most people face when trying to enjoy a touch of nature indoors – space! And, if you’re like me, once you have a few plants, you’re going to be hungry for more 🙂 When I found out that plants don’t have to be big to be beautiful, a whole new world opened up to me!
For some reason, I’ve always been infatuated with all things miniature! In kindergarten, I remember my teacher reading us a story called “The little old lady who lived in a vinegar bottle.” Although I don’t remember anything about the story itself, I can still remember dreaming about what it might be like to live in a tiny little cottage hidden somewhere among the ferns on the forest floor. And, after all these years… I’m still dreaming 🙂
Many years ago, my aunt gave me a tiny little egg-shaped container that held a sweet little surprise inside! As I opened the top, inside sat the tiniest little plant – almost unbelievably tiny! The plant had lots of velvety green leaves, piles of little white slipper-shaped blossoms, and even a bit of moss covering the soil. The most amazing thing about this gift was, from leaf tip to leaf tip, this little potted gem was only 1 1/2 inches across! This was the beginning of my love for miniature houseplants.
