Basic Houseplant Care, In Drawings.

Plant Lady Skills, An Illustrated Guide.

As you might have noticed in my illustrations, I’m becoming more and more of a plant lady! Because the number of plants that I own has grown so much, I needed to improve my “keeping-my-plants-alive” skills. I’ve learned a lot from watching videos on YouTube. I’m still not an expert by far, but I did sum up the basics of houseplant care in this drawing. I hope you find it useful.

In case you’re interested: my two favorite places for plant advise are Mama Botanica and Planterina. I’ve learned so much from them. For example: I had no idea I had to clean my plants! I also loved the tip about turning your plants a little bit (if possible) when you water them, to keep them growing nice and full.⁠

Happy Spring! (In Drawings)

2019 Happy spring Mangomini

Illustrated Spring Happiness!

Another happy spring drawing, just to add a sunny feeling to this otherwise grey Dutch day. I wish I was wearing this polka dot dress and sipping some rosé in the sun. Luckily I don’t need sun for getting my home and balcony spring-ready (or to drink rosé wine).
