I know it has been a while since I last posted, but I am back and I am excited to introduce you to Doris! Yes, I have named it. I bought a tiny cactus and named it Doris. If you’re reading this Mum and Dad, remember when I named the fish? I miss having a pet, something to take care of and I figured why not a cactus? They’re trendy and low-maintenance, right? So I got a little spiky plant and thought it would be funny to name it.
A while back, I tried to DIY one of those cute mason jar cups. But the jar in question was HUGE and near impossible to drink out of. So I gave up and bought a cheap little one instead. Well, that didn’t go down too good either because it wasn’t secure and I ended up soaking my shirt trying to be hydrated. Guess I got what I wanted, huh?
Coming home with my new plant-buddy, I wanted to create an indoor garden thingy after seeing a couple of bloggers who have their own. Shoutout to Reema’s Garden! And guess what? I ended up getting pretty messy (not that I mind, I can handle a little mud) in my backyard, scooping up dirt and compost to build Doris a new home. With what? The evil, defective little mason jar cup! Life takes unexpected turns sometimes. Who’d a thunk it, that something I deemed useless came in handy and helped create a cute new piece of décor?
Note that I put the pot into the jar of dirt. I didn’t plant the cactus straight into the jar as it has no holes to drain. Do cactuses-erm, cacti?- need draining? If it ever needs draining I can just pull the pot up I guess. If anyone has experience with a cactus and you are willing to share your tips I would be very grateful.
That was my detailed story about how I created my very own indoor garden. If my post made you giggle or snort, then hit like and share because that makes me smile! Have you ever tried to take care of a living thing; a plant, a pet, a baby? How did that turn out for you? Let me know in the comments below. Follow for more madness and I’ll see you all later!
But until next time, keep blabbing!
