The Plant Rookie

Mar 11, 2011

Even though I’ve been passionate plants for a while, admittedly, I don’t know too much about them. Today, here at Woolly headquarters we got our hands dirty and learned a bit about plants from our resident expert, Stephanie while we all planted our own “Tina” Pockets. Here are a few things I learned that I didn’t know before:

1. I learned about Bromeliads. (For those of you who are new to all this plant stuff, like me– the Bromeliads are a tropical plant, and a great example of a Bromeliad that we are all really familiar with is the Pineapple. What? I know, I was shocked too…) I also learned that Bromeliads like to be watered through their cones. See Stephanie? I was listening 😉

2. I also learned that succulents (one of my favorite plant types) don’t need their roots to survive. You can pick pieces off of a succulent and let it dry for 1-2 days, and then replant it, and the roots will grow again. Rad right? It’s like the never-ending story.

3. I also learned about plants that get root-bound. This is when the plant grows for too long in it’s container and the roots grow around and around and become all tangled and then have no more room to grow. Plants love Pockets because plants don’t get root-bound in Pockets.

So that’s it for planting 101. More to come. Promise.
With Love,

The Plant Rookie,
Justina
