There’s nothing like seeing rain on your ficus trees on a cool Friday evening. I love it. Bubba is still not putting on new leaves so I think I will have to bust his pot yall. SMH. I will wait a little bit longer because I really like the pot he’s in. Roots were coming out of the bottom already last year though…👀 #friday #ficus #rain #rubbertree #june #hunnyplantz #gardening #plantaddict #plantsplantsplants #plantsofinstagram #loveplants #everyday #blackwithplants #plantparenthood #instagarden #instagardeners #foliage #urbanjunglebloggers #black #blackgirlswithgardens #blackpeopewithplants #blackmenwithgardens #plantsarefriends #plantinspiration #foliagetherapy #blackpeople #plantmom #plants #houseplants #blackgirlsgardening

🗣Choose your hard! I developed a taste for challenges so I decided to do my 5k today in the middle of the heat (82° 🥵). Was it hard? Absolutely. You know what else is hard? Being sick! Life gives you two options. You can either pick the “hard/inconvenient” thing now or it’ll pick it for you later. Choose wisely. ⚖️ #motivation #consistency #blackmenwithlocs #locs #locsnation #fitnessjourney #dreads #menwithlocs #menwithgardens #blackmenwithgardens #locdhaircommunity #creative #liveoutloud #locs #locnation #blackmenfitness #fitnessjourney #blackfitness #blackfarmers #urbangardening #locnation #loccandkeyy #goodlocday #locsndreds

I noticed that I have picked quite a few followers recently and thought I would officially introduce myself to y'all. . What's good orchid and greenery lovers out there! My name is Terry, also known as "The Black Thumb," and I have been rescuing orchids for about 3 years. I fell into my passion for orchids shortly after I found my first one, Penelope, at the dumpster at our apartment complex. She was in pretty rough shape, but I decided to take a chance that I could revive her. Fast forward 18 months and she bloomed in all her glory! As you can imagine, my love for orchids was cemented and who doesn't love free plants from the dumpster!?! 😂 This was also a pivotal moment for me because I always saw myself as a "black thumb," in the traditional sense. Yet, Penelope taught me that a little knowledge, consistency, patience, and perseverance can go a long way in helping something reach its full potential. So I embarked on a journey to rescue and revive as many orchids as I can to bring a little beauty to the world and to prove that being called a "black thumb" does not mean you are not capable of creating beauty and cultivating life. In all honesty, I started this journey for the satisfaction of getting beautiful flowers to bloom. But as I got deeper into this passion I realized that each of the orchids/plants in my collection provided just as much, if not more, care for me than I did for my plants. So in a way we created this unique symbiotic relationship that has provided me a safe space to unplug, recharge, and rejuvenate. My hope is that my passion for orchids will inspire others to engage in the wonders of orchid growing. So, if you have an orchid and want to make sure it thrives you are in the right place. If you love seeing beautiful flowers/greenery, you are in the right place. Lastly, if you want positive vibes that bring joy, you are definitely in the right place! There is so much craziness in the world right now and I truly believe we can all benefit from some plant therapy. #KeepBlooming

Y’all!!! I have been so worked up in new hobbies that I missed some things! What y’all been up to!? I wish I really had clones of myself who I can share experiences with.

But I promise plant peeps I love y’all and have been trying to keep up with what y’all have been doing. 💚🤗 . . . . . #plants #plantsplantsplants #plantpeople #blackpeoplegrow #plantsaholic #indoorgarden #indoorplants #indoorjungle #plantlover #houseplantclub #houseplants #urbanplantclub #plantparent #greenhome #blackpeoplewithplants #urbanjungle #plantsmakemehappy #house _plant_community #greenthumb #plantslover #blackmenwithgardens #iplanteven #helloplantlover #houseofplantlovers #boyswithplants #plantscouts #blackinthegarden #urbanjunglebloggers #houseplantclub #gtsport

What's good folks! I have been getting a lot of questions about orchid leaves turning yellow recently, so I thought I would share a few "Black Pearls" of wisdom I have picked up along the way. This is what experience and a little research has taught me. . . Yellowing of leaves at the bottom of your orchid is totally natural. It marks the end of life of mature leaves to make room for new leaf growth at the top. If this is your experience, keep doing what you doing. You're still winning! 🏆 🌿 . . However, if you're like me you have experienced yellowing leaves in the middle or even the top of your orchid. You also probably had that weird feeling in your gut that this doesn't feel right. Here are a few things you should consider when this type of yellowing occurs: . 1) Too Much Sun- orchids are sun loving, but only thrive with filtered light. Direct sunlight can cause sunburn leading to yellowing that eventually turns black. This typically is reduced only to the area of sunburn. . Solution: Relocate to an area where your orchid can get filtered light. . 2) Too Much Water- Overwatering can lead to root rot which can lead to yellowing of your leaves. This can also increase risk of fungal and bacterial infections. . Solution: If your roots look healthy, allow your orchid longer time to dry out between waterings. If you suspect root rot, repot your orchid and make sure to address any rot/infection with appropriate interventions. . 3) Too Little Water- underwatering can cause yellowing of your leaves due to dehydration. A hallmark sign of underwatering is shriveling of your leaves prior to becoming yellow in color. . Solution- Implement a consistent watering schedule and factor in potting media. That will also determine how often you should water. . 4) Too Cold/Hot- Orchids will thrive in certain temperature ranges, 60-80F during the day and 60-70F at night. If your orchid spends extended time outside of these ranges yellowing of your leaves is likely. . Solution: Adjust your orchid's environment to live comfortably between the optimal ranges. . I hope these tips take some of the plant parent stress away so you and your orchid can #KeepBlooming

Big Plant Energy coming your way on this lovely #sansevieriasunday 💚 . Every single year I am absolutely amazed at the new growth on this behemoth of a snake plant 😊 and knowing that this was just a single leaf blade in 2014 makes this that much better 💚 . Tylenol please. When you get a chance cuz my back 🤕😣 . Anyways, check out all the new growth coming in on the sides. The newer leaves come in and are mostly white for a few months before they darken to their permanent deep green hue. . Next week, I’ll once again be splitting this big snake into multiple plants so that I can finally pot the main portion back in its terra cotta pot, where it will spend the rest of its days in my morning room with that amazing east facing sunlight 🌞 . Yes. Snake plants are low light tolerant and will survive under numerous different conditions ; however, if you want your plant to actually thrive and grow, you have to give it some sun. Remember, low light tolerance means exactly that. They will tolerate low light but that doesn’t mean that it’s what your plant actually wants. . Happy Growing 💚🌈 and I’m serious about that Tylenol 🥴 my back is on fire 😭😂 . . . . . . . . . . #blackplantman #plants #snakeplant #sansevieria #plantdad #plantsmakepeoplehappy #plantparenthood #bigplants #bigplantenergy #porch #porchdecor #repotting #growth #boyswithplants #blackmenwithgardens #propagation #myneckmyback #help #crazyplantpeople #houseplants #sundayfunday

Guest post by @gardeningwithgary Now we are getting into my bag: gardening. Gardening draws out an incredible amount of passion from me. I love it. It's a tradition, reaching back to my grandmother, Marian Young. Her and and my grandfather bought a home in New Northwood just after segregation in early 60s. They were the 3rd Black family on their street (1411 Winston Ave). Read my story on her here: https://publicallies.org/gardening-and-sankofa-an-essay/ Today is a heavy gardening day. Lots of watering, weeding, mulching, harvesting. Super excited to show you all! #blackgardeners #blackgardens #bmoregardens #mdgardens #raisedgardenbeds #containergardening #blackboygardeners #blackmenwithgardens . . . . #northeastbaltimore #lifeissweetinthenortheast #baltimorecity #baltimoremd #bmorelocal #igbaltimore #charmcity #maryland #mdinfocus #bmoresecretspots #igbmore #explorebaltimore #bmorelove #discovercharmcity #walkwithlocals #ilovebaltimore #visitmaryland #bmorelife #baltmag #mybmore #thisisbaltimore #wearebaltimore

Imma be honest. @stelly.white and I use to go back and forth about wearing Birkenstocks and socks. I was always “pro-toes out” only and she was down for both. But here we are a year or so later… and now I’m down for both too. 😂 . . . . . #birkenstock #birkenstocks #birkensocks #birkenstockarizona #birkenstockmen #monsteradeliciosa #monstera #euphorbia #house _plant_community #greenthumb #plantslover #blackmenwithgardens #iplanteven #helloplantlover #houseofplantlovers #boyswithplants #plantscouts #blackinthegarden #urbanjunglebloggers #houseplantclub
