Recently started a new hobby. It’s crazy how things start from something as simple as an idea. I’ve always wanted plants in my home. I feel like they brighten a room. Add flair to the home. But, I never fully looked into it. Every plant I would see whether it be at Aldi’s, Bjs, or a supermarket we’re usually toxic for the cats. I didn’t want to take the chance of something happening. You never know with these critters.
As most may know I purchased some succulents in a terrarium at aldis after looking up if they were toxic to my fur babies. Apparently, they’re not! I was excited. Now that went from that to purchasing more succulents, learning their names, their individual care, joining Facebook groups. The whole mile. I find that it’s more enjoyable than I thought. I went from one container of plants to 11 soon to be 14! I’m telling you all. It’s addicting. Hopefully I have a green thumb. I shall lost the ones I have so far both scientific and given name/type:
-Echeveria “Morning Beauty”
-Cryptanthus “Pink Earth Star”
-Aloe Albiflora (not sure but closest ID)
-Graptopetalum paraguayense “Ghost plant aka Mother of Pearl”
-Echeveria Perle Von Nurnberg
*Plants on the way*
-Sempervivum “Black Lotus”
-Sempervivum “Bronze Pastel”
-Green rosette looking plant (not sure)
That’s my collection so far! I’ll share some before and after pictures of what I did with the space in my bedroom. These shelves have been a life saver!
Can’t wait for the others to come in. The shelves make it look so organized and lovely. I totally recommend them. Hopefully I have a green thumb. I’ll be sharing my trial and errors with my succulents. Good or bad. Hobbies are learned through trial and error. Wish me luck!

There’s different ones to fit any lifestyle from bright light to low light areas. They hardly need to be watered. But, they’re also easy to kill if they’re overwatered or under watered. They susceptible to things like mealy bugs, root rot, sunburn etc. Always do your research when getting these beauties.

It looks so good!! I LOVE succulents! But sadly my apartment doesn’t so I can’t have any 😦
Awe why doesn’t it?
The air quality is horrible! Everything dies. I never had a problem in the last 2 places I lived 😦
That’s so odd! I never knew even air quality could impact their overall health! I’m still so new to all this.
