Desktop Jungle

I hinted at this in my last post, but I thought I’d take some time to really show off the houseplants that I’ve purchased. After two years of not really feeling settled enough to buy plants (with the exception of a kalanchoe that I abused horribly in Sydney) I am finally feeling rooted enough to spend entirely too much money on green things to adorn my desktop.

Currently, I’m sort-of focused on carnivores — I have tropical and temperate pitcher plants, Venus flytraps and sundews, along with orchids, and a few succulents that I found on sale. It’s a lovely feeling to come into my room and be surrounded by plants, even if my big ole Nepenthes x ‘Miranda’ will probably devour me in my sleep one of these days.

Anyway, here’s a quick tour of some of the things in my collection. (I’ve also been having fun with studio shots, if you can’t tell…)
