September Plant Finds + Care Tips

I cant believe how quick September went by!! I got a lot of great feedback on my last plant post. So I decided at the end of each month I’m going to round up the plants I’ve found for the month and give the care tips I’ve found to work for me. This month I got three plants!

Crassula Ovata(Jade Plant)

Purchased From: The Home Depot

Price: $3.98

The first plant I got is the Jade Plant. I’ve been wanting this plant for a while now. Like I said in my last post, I prefer buying smaller plants because of the space I have and because I love watching them grow. The jade plants I’ve been seeing have all been really large so I was super excited to find a little one! Since jade plants are succulents, they are super easy to grow and maintain. Jade plants survive best in moist soil, so usually its best to not let the soil dry out. But in the coming winter months its best to let succulents dry out between waterings. They also do well in indirect but bright sunlight. I would definitely recommend this plant to anyone who struggles to keep up with taking care of plants because it has a low maintenance level. 

Portulacaria Afra(Elephant Bush)

Purchased From: The Home Depot

Price: $9.98

The next one I got was the elephant bush. I’ve seen this plant a bunch because they always have it at The Home Depot but nothing really ever pushed me to buy it. This is mostly because I didn’t know too much about it. But one day I decided to look it up and see how to take care of it. Since it seemed pretty simple I decided to finally buy it! This plant is also considered a succulent so it has very similar care as the jade plant. This tolerates drought well so if you’re one to forget to water your plants this would be a good one for you! This plant also does well in indirect but bright sunlight. I currently have this plant hanging in front of a window and it has been thriving there!

Hoya Curtisii(Stripes Wax Plant)

Purchased From: Lowes

Price: $15.98

I was so excited to find the stripes wax plant! When I saw this from a distance I thought it was a string of hearts plant, which I’ve also been trying to find. I love how this one looks and it’s going to look so cool when it gets longer. This plant cost a little bit more than the plants I usually buy, but I had to have it. This plant was freshly watered when I picked it up about a week ago and I haven’t had to water it since because the soil has stayed moist. The stripes wax plant does best in bright light so it will thrive in front of a window that gives bright sunlight.

I hoped you enjoyed the beginning of this series! Feel free to leave a comment or direct message me on instagram if you have any additional questions.
