    I love your content, thank you for sharing this interesting information about plants.

  6. Plants of Josh on July 17, 2021 at 2:33 am

    This was great! I’m from the UK and thought she represented our houseplant culture really well. Off to check out her channel now!

  7. Elizabeth Colours on July 17, 2021 at 2:34 am

    That Frydek is goals. I did not know they can get that big!

  8. Tell Wel on July 17, 2021 at 2:34 am

    Lovely, what a nice collaboration. Nice to listen to plant people.

  9. Cat C on July 17, 2021 at 2:39 am

    Ordering outside of EU when you live in EU is something I’ve 100% stopped doing. There’s >20% flat tax which INCLUDES shipping fees, and often other fees added on, some for express shipping, some for other reasons. Not uncommon to end up paying almost the entire value of a parcel twice because you’re hit with fees and then some more fees. It’s gotta be an exceptional plant that I definitely cannot get locally for me to be able to justify it, and so far I haven’t found one worth the fees.

  10. Kathy Macomber on July 17, 2021 at 2:43 am

    Awesome lady

  11. Veronica Purcell on July 17, 2021 at 2:45 am

    How do you care for your Alocasia Frydek? Yours is simply gorgeous.

  12. Holly Beck on July 17, 2021 at 2:46 am

    Wonderful episode! Love more international planty people.

  13. Daniela McGhie on July 17, 2021 at 2:48 am

    I must be the odd one out in London. No humidifier to be found in my house.
    But great video. Now off to find her on Instagram. I am

  14. Vief Cakes on July 17, 2021 at 2:50 am

    Thank you for this!! So much great information and explained really clearly.

  15. P on July 17, 2021 at 2:50 am

    @LegendsofMonstera I was wondering if you could help me with my Monstera propagation issue.

    I have had my cutting in water for 5 weeks now. It has been growing well. I don’t however think it is ready yet to transition onto soil. A few days ago I started putting seaweed solution in and the roots started going black and mushy.

    What do I do? Do I go perlite? Is the issue just with seaweed?

    Do I cut the black roots off and air it out over night and put it back in water?

    Assalamualaikum i m from Indonesian.

  17. AnnaKavan on July 17, 2021 at 2:53 am

    Dr Jimmy amazing video. You look so young.

  18. Shane Tan on July 17, 2021 at 2:54 am

    Haha this was so cute and as another aroider in London, I can definitely relate to four seasons in one day. I had my aroids in my outdoor greenhouse this summer during the heat wave and it got to 41 degrees that day!!! I was so scared they were going to melt, haha. Growlights are definitely a must in the coming months!

    And regarding shipping from Europe, I actually had orders from Europe arrive as fast as 2 days during COVID, and maybe as long as a week, (depends on the country it comes from), but I can definitely understand the higher prices compared to taking the risk on importing from Asia.

  19. Suzy C on July 17, 2021 at 2:55 am

    This was so interesting! Love hearing about plant trends in different countries, would love to see more people from all around the globe.

  20. ukcurlygrl1 on July 17, 2021 at 2:55 am

    She was so amazing! I live in a small apartment with similar issues with light, humidity, etc, and it was so cool to hear her experiences!

  24. Daisy Salinas on July 17, 2021 at 3:03 am

    I Had to stop the video and order two Frydek in a 4” pot on esty. Lol

  25. Oliver Blackhall on July 17, 2021 at 3:05 am

    Link to her page here. It was difficult to find

  28. NekoNeko on July 17, 2021 at 3:14 am

    Unable to grow any tropicals in UK weather without lights or humidifiers. And even then its littered with issues…u just have to follow their environment requirements as closely as possible.
    Must admit the lockdown was silly… no stuff anywhere.
    Shipping delays are an issue. The amount of stuff I’ve lost from Asia and will never see again..

  29. Louise Ahmed on July 17, 2021 at 3:16 am

    I live in Manchester UK and I’m growing tropicals both indoors and out. I have Musa Chini Champa, Alocasia Macrorrhiza, phoenix palm alocasia which are outdoors and indoors piper Nigrum, Piper Betel, monstera abandoning, Calathea, coffee arabica, pomegranate, citrus medica. Its possible to grow these even on a budget. You don’t need to spend alot of money and buy expensive lighting, etc

  30. TheDrikitcha on July 17, 2021 at 3:17 am

    Can anyone put a link to her YouTube?
