My 2020 plant wishlist

On Instagram, I keep seeing the hashtag ‘myplantwishlist2020’, where people post a collage of plants they would like to get this year. Fun! But I thought, let’s instead make a blogpost out of it. So I sat down and started to think about which plants I really want to add to my collection. The following list is the result:

1. Philodendron Micans

The Philodendron Micans is high up on my list. Last year I got a cutting of this plant, but sadly she didn’t make it. So sad because I really love this plant… the red backsides and the velvet feel; absolutely stunning!

2. String of Pearls

I once owned a String of Pearls, that didn’t make it. I do know what went wrong at the time, so I would like to try again. I also have a String of Hearts, which is one of my favourite plants and though it’s a totally different plant, I guess they’re sort of similar. So I would like to get one.

3. Calathea Orbifolia

I think the Calathea Orbifolia is one of the most beautiful Calathea out there. Sadly I’ve only come across this plant in very big sizes. And I just ain’t got space for that. So I hope to find this in a smaller size one day!

4. Spiral Cactus

I think the spiral cactus is so cool! The shape of it is just really special if you ask me. I haven’t really seen it around anywhere but I hope to come across it soon because boy she pretty!

5. Alocasia Zebrina

You might think ‘hey, but you already have one’… Sadly, my beautiful Zebrina is on her deathbed. I am going to try and save her, but I don’t have much hope I’ll succeed, to be honest. So that’s why it’s on my wishlist. I just love this plant so much!

    Mooi wenslijstje! Leuk ook om die van andere plantliefhebbers te zien! Het erwtenplantje heb ik ook, maar het is geen gemakkelijke idd. Groetjes!

    Ik wil graag een string of hearts voor op me boekenkast, en die spiraalcactus vind ik dus ook de ‘bom’ en ga er zeker naar kijken of die te vinden is.
