I’m Allie, and I’ll be learning and sharing about a variety of plant care topics over the next few months on the Urban Jungle Journal. A little about me: I’ve claimed Des Moines as home for over a decade. I love houseplants, dogs, books, dessert, coffee, and tea.

This week, we’re talking about being a plant killer. Yes, I said it. In spite of a rocky plant-care track record, I was pretty sure that “This time would be different” and “I’m much more aware of what I’m doing.” Luckily, I was able to connect with Shylah and ask her why this had happened and how to remedy it.
We’re back again, this time to talk about how to make your plants feel the most welcome when you bring them home. We’ll talk about some basics for placement and care, as well as how to create a few vignettes that keep your plants happy and healthy, and your shelves extremely Instagrammable.
