My Five Favorite Plant Accessories

Yes accessories for plants you read that right. As my plant collection has grown I have had to find/purchase ways to make room for everything else in my home including me and my dog, Toby. So Stands, hangers, or some other objects you will se below have made a difference.

 All things purchasable are linked

  1. The Greenhouse 817 Plant Stands

    The Greenhouse 817 has an many different plant stands to choose from I was lucky enough to snatch these bad boys up. They elevate the plants and make it easy to style plants around and even underneath. They are made of metal so they are strong enough to hold some of my heavier pots.

    You can visit their shop and find your own stands that fit each of your pots! Check them out!

2. Urban Outfitters Triangle String Hanging Planter

Not going to lie when I ordered this online it got tangled and I had to hanging wrong for about a week. Then I saw a photo of it and figured it out. On to the good stuff I love this guy it is the perfect holder for someone who has the ability to hang directly from the ceiling (aka hopefully me sometime soon). It fits two of my The Greenhouse 817 plants giving them some room to dangle.

3. Urban Outfitters Metal Circle Hanging Planter

This beautiful rose gold plant hanger is perfect for holding up my heavier plant. My rope plant is not a light load and this hanger holds it pretty well. I cant hang it the way I want to just yet but I am excited to give this plant the extra height it needs to grow its crazy long arms.

5. My great grandfathers old briefcase

Probably the coolest thing I have given. I love family heirlooms especially ones with such character. I have given this briefcase new life by making it into a small plant stand. It helps elevate a few plants to give some height variation among my specimens. I have been worried about the interior structure of the case so to make sure its sturdy I filled it with old magazines giving it the support it needs.

4. Urban Outfitters Caged Metal Hanging Air Plant Holder

As soon as The Greenhouse 817 got new tillandsia airplants in stock I knew i wanted to test my luck in one these amazing plants. I bought my plant then purchased the perfect hanger for it. I am obsessed with this cages hanger because not only does it match the rest, but after I am done watering I can flip my airplant upside down in this hanger and let it air dry with out risk to the plant or the holder itself.


My Favorite Plant

Not only is this specimen my first plant but it is also my favorite. Yep I pick favorites amongst all my plant babies.

Here he is Franklin or more commonly called a Dragon Bones Euphorbia.

There are thousands of varieties of Euphorbias and it has taken me forever to nail down what this once little guy is. Below you can see him and some other now dead succulents I first owned.

Now this guy I got my junior year of high school as a gift from my amazing boyfriend, Mark, so about seven years ago. I graduated high school with this plant, moved to college, survived a car wreck, graduated college, and moved to Fort Worth. This plant has been along for the entire ride and some how survived.

It took him awhile to start growing but after that each summer he took off. I eventually had to start removing arms because he was becoming too top heavy. But the great thing about this plant is it is super easy to propagate. You simply use a sharp CLEAN knife remove the arm and let it stop bleeding. Yeah you heard that right it has to stop bleeding. Euphorbias are filled with a white liquid that burns the skin. You have to handle these babies with care to make sure you don’t get hurt. But once it is dry you can pop your arm in the dirt and it will start growing roots.

Plant Wishlist

I’ll tell you what I want what I really really want..and it’s plants. Yes I know what you are asking do you really have a plant wishlist and that’s a BIG yes.

I understand that I probably won’t have a chance to own them all because well lighting and environment is a big factor. But these are what I call the dream plants the beautiful leafy greens that would be amazing to wake up to everyday. I honestly just want an in home jungle but I think Toby (my pup) might not be happy.

moonlight caladium

I actually tried this guy out in my current apartment and well it’s dead now. I love how the light passes through and looks almost ghostly

those tiny little leaf patterns are sooo pretty. I love a plant with large leaves.

Cacti

This isn’t a specific specimen but I want a lot of tall cacti of all different shapes and sizes. I mean how amazing would it be to have these tall lovely structures in every corner.

Staghorn Fern

I love the idea of a plant I can mount and hang on my wall. The shape of these leaves make my heart swoon.

Bird of Paradise

Again look at those leaves.

Plant Wall

Again not a specific plant but more of an idea. A grid plant wall with all different leaf shapes would be amazing. Not only because it would be so cool but also an amazing photo background.

Silver Bay Chinese Evergreen

Last but not least I have been eyeing the beauty at The Greenhouse 817 everyday since it arrived in the shop. It can tolerate low light and has such stunning coloring.
