    I’m so glad that you put the camera six inches from the shears, because I didn’t now what a pair of shears was.

    I have 3 questions for anyone who might have the answers or suggestions, I’d appreciate any advice on these questions, so that I can keep my new plant happy:
    I have a new Monstera, in 12" pot. So it’s already a nice sized plant. It has many new leaves and it appears to be growing nicely and it looks really healthy. However, on about 3-4 leaves, which are the a few of the older leaves, it has what seem to be growing black area spots along some edges of the leaves. They only appeared after the 1st time I watered the plant and so far seem to only be on a few of the older leaves. Here are my questions:
    Question #1: What might these spots be or what might have caused them to appear?
    Question #2: Should I just leave these leaves on the plant or should those spotted leaves be removed, to keep from infecting the rest of the plant. I looks to be more systemic, rather than from insects.
    Question#3: Some of the leaves are actually dripping a water-like liquid from the tips of the leaves.
    Is this just their own natural way of removing too much water from the plants system and/or Is this typical of Pholodenderins or Monsteras?
    Thank you for any answers or advice you can share about these questions.

    A house is not a home without lots of happy houseplants and trees. I derive so much satisfaction from caring for mine, and they add so much interest that nothing else can quite duplicate.

  10. Secundra Beasley on May 12, 2022 at 7:51 pm

    I needed this video. Thank You!

    This apartment has amazing lighting! It looks great with all of the plants.🌿

  13. Tim Fridly on May 12, 2022 at 7:55 pm

    Okay, next I will bring a farm in my apartment.

    I’m having a green thumb now 😁

  16. Stephen A. Katz on May 12, 2022 at 7:58 pm

    That’s it, zoom zoom zoom. Be sure to use the zoom lens. The camera is already too close, so zoom on in.

  17. Pho3b317 on May 12, 2022 at 8:00 pm

    Oxygen supply must be fresh as fuckk

  18. pikachien on May 12, 2022 at 8:00 pm

    Do you get tiny tiny tiny little flies? I have been getting some and Im freaking out a little lol

  19. Stephen A. Katz on May 12, 2022 at 8:01 pm

    I love the way you hold the camera really close so that we can’t see a thing.

  20. th3azscorpio on May 12, 2022 at 8:03 pm

    I’ve been thinking of turning my space into it a indoor jungle. I’ve been collecting houseplants for a while, and cultivating an indoor vegetable garden. So far, it’s coming along nicely. It’s just so much fun learning about how to take care of my plants, and having many beautiful, green lifeforms around you.

  21. Stephen A. Katz on May 12, 2022 at 8:03 pm

    That’s it, move the camera closer and closer. That really helps us see the garden.

  22. Anna Nieznanow on May 12, 2022 at 8:04 pm

    She didn’t water last two plants from the egg carton! 😱

    i stan this woman.PERIODT

  31. Stephen A. Katz on May 12, 2022 at 8:10 pm

    Did it ever occur to you to hold the camera back so that we could see the woman and her plants; and hold the camera stationary? Of course not; you’re too smart for that.

  32. Dr. Veronika Sandul on May 12, 2022 at 8:10 pm

    Good Luck!

  33. tuamigajordana on May 12, 2022 at 8:11 pm

    Are you in your pajamas?

  34. Herbologist Laura on May 12, 2022 at 8:14 pm

    My house is a jungle. It’s a lot of work. Indoor plants are difficult. My yard is gorgeous however. Grow plants that are native to your state for easy, pollinator friendly plants.

  35. Alejandro Garcia on May 12, 2022 at 8:15 pm

    Yay, Riley!!

  36. Fraxinus_a on May 12, 2022 at 8:16 pm

    The whole inside and outside of my RV is a garden. Mainly because I have a plant business I run out of my tiny home. πŸ˜„πŸŒ±πŸƒ

  37. Its_NattyJ on May 12, 2022 at 8:17 pm

    My fear is the bugs the plants invite and of course I have a cat so I can’t really have real plants. But seriously, how do you keep the critters away?

  38. Suzy garden on May 12, 2022 at 8:18 pm

    Very good idea, everyone please support me thanks channel

  39. jayteadesigns on May 12, 2022 at 8:25 pm

    What if there is no direct sunlight? Can anything else be a substitute?

  40. Beatriz Hurtado on May 12, 2022 at 8:25 pm

  43. Stephen A. Katz on May 12, 2022 at 8:29 pm

    That’s it, get really close to the woman’s hands.We can only see her hands if the camera is eight inches away from them.
