There’s hope for brown thumbs! I love my indoor plants from fiddle leaf figs, to peace lily to lady palm. Green thumb now since noticing that my plants turned greener once being watered with 'old' water - water sitting around for more than a day. Not sure why! Then I discovered - TroForte fertiliser which creates living organisms in the soil.

I have a lot of indoor plants and generally they live for years inside. I love them, nurture them, talk to them occasionally, feed them and my biggest tip - don’t water them too much. I manage to keep my African violets flowering for months by only giving them the tiniest bit of water once a week ( and I live in hot Qld ), I have had a Raphis Palm flourishing inside for 6 years, fiddle leaf figs, wandering Iris, palms, rubberplants etc.. my house is starting to look like a green house
