Houseplant Bible 📖 🌱#10 : Diversity within the species.
Hi everyone! Pam and Bekka here! We are excited to announce our Houseplant Bible, a short list of our top ten houseplant care tips for healthy, thriving plants. We've decided to work backward, and start with #10 : Diversity within the species.🌱
Natural variation from plant to plant within the same species is normal. There has been a recent trend of wishing for plants that look "just so" after seeing a particular specimen online (we've all done it!). Keep in mind morphological differences exist, as you can see in this series of rhaphidophora tetrasperma photos. Some differences are genetic, or due to age (juvenile/young leaves can sometimes look different in some plants such as philodendrons or rhaphidophora), or due to differences in the environment it grows in. It's important to love your plant, with all of its differences and nuisances! Strive to keep your plant healthy and don't stress it doesn't look like your neighbors. Plants at their healthiest will look awesome, no matter how different! 🌱
This also means that if you have multiple plants of the same species they may also require different care. Pilea peperomiodes is notoriously different from plant to plant, with some requiring high light with maybe some sunlight, and others requiring deep shade. Perhaps we can assign them personalities? ***
Next up: #9 , air flow and humidity.
