I’ll see your crazy cat lady and raise you a crazy plant lady…

*** First of all! ***

My intention is to post two videos a week. My intention is to post those videos on Wednesday and Saturday. YouTube likes to mess with my OCD and just let videos sit in an upload loop. So first of all, know that I am working pretty diligently to stay on that schedule, and second of all, know that I am devising a plant to get several videos uploaded in a queue so that we maybe can avoid this tardiness issue from now on, yeah?

SO! Here is the video: FINALLY!!!!!

Oh boy, that’s a LONG one, and let me tell you, I could have gone longer. I hope you were in the mood for a total hang out sesh there!

Lets cover the “Don’t Come at Me’s” LOL!

I know that my porch is a disaster zone – it wasn’t after I was done filming as you can see at the end. (Can you believe I was going to add a clean-up element to that video? HA! Ambition! Nobody wants a 3 hour video, my goodness!)

I know the fish tank water is YUCK – we have well water, it doesn’t even take three weeks to get that bad. I’m not abusing my fish. His name is Orangey, by the way. The sole survivor of the winter freeze. I’ve blogged about these babies in the years past. Here and I thought a couple of other places, but perhaps not.

My plants were dusty and thirsty – they got a wipe down and a good drink, some even got pruned, fertilized, and/or repotted. Plant chores got did!

NEXT! Let’s give some Etsy love!

The shops I got the black goldfish plants from: https://www.etsy.com/shop/JulliganIslandPlants

And now for the educational element of this post!

I included the scientific names of all the plants on the video because I think it’s important to know. Plants have a lot of different common names, and a lot of different types share a common name, so if you really need some specific information, it’s good to know. I would like to just give you a brief run down! While my OCD brain would like for everything to be in alphabetical order, I want this to be a true companion post for the video, so I am going to go in chronological order as they are shown in the video.
