I’ve often coveted the idea of making my house (or at least a room in the house) a little greenhouse-y, with more lush potted greenery than I have now.
This bedroom inspiration board from IKEA, for instance, makes me pine for open shelving draped with fresh greenery.
(I even own lots of those wonderful white ceramic pots.)
I’m making slow steps in that direction, salvaging as many small plants as I can get my hands on, with hopes of growing them into something fantastically luxurious.
Thanks to Wegmans, an east-coast grocery phenomenon, for helping me get one step closer to my dreamy jungle house. This is surely is the largest, most luxurious potted plant for the lowest price. I’m talking less than $5. That’s what I call consistently low prices.
(Yeah, they forgot to remove the signage, but at least you know I’m not goofing.)
Identified as a Wandering Jew, it’s known as a lush perennial capable of growing 3-4′. Thanks, eHow for that insight. This is planted in a 10″ pot, but according to the care instructions, it thrives better in smaller pots… which means, if I split it (and allow for more growth), I’m going to have two plants for the price of one very cheap plant. What a win.
P.S. The unsightly plastic hook came right off, sign came right out, and it’s sitting right where you see it shown in the living room for now.
