 056. How to Grow Succulents in Your Home | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 00:29:09

I've said it once and I'll say it again - succulents ae BAD houseplants! I really mean that. I am speaking in broad terms here but take heart in knowing that just because you've "killed a succulent" doesn't mean you are doomed to be a plant killer! It just means that a succulent, or that particular succulent, wasn't a good ft for you or the growing conditions your home provides. In this episode I'll cover: What makes a plant 'succulent' Why succulents aren't very good houseplants (so you can breath a sigh of relief!) How to care for succulents the RIGHT way How to repot a succulent How to find a houseplant that IS right for you: Follow on Instagram:

So you know grow lights can help your houseplants grow but do you know how they work? And did you know that not all "grow lights" are created equally?

This is why I've brought the founders of Soltech Solutions onto the show to dive DEEP into grow lights. This conversation is such a rich one and I know you're going to enjoy it! I personally ADORE my aspect light from Soltech Solutions and I can't recommend them highly enough!

 050. Stop the self-care movement and start taking care of yourself | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 00:28:53

Self-care. What a trendy word. Don’t get me wrong, I am grateful for parts of it! But like an overgrown garden, I think we’ve all gotten a little carried away and there is some weeding that needs to be done. What I believe started as a very important message of “You are allowed to have fun, to eat good food, to invest personal growth, in your hobbies, and the little things that make you so happy has turned into a frighteningly deceptive half-truth. One that seems shiny and lovely and wonderful, but ends up leaving us feeling more frustrated and empty than we began.

 049. Poinsettias: History & Care | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 00:22:28

Poinsettias are the number one potted plant sold in the US with over $250 million made annually. 80% of the people who purchase them are women and I would wager to guess that 99% of those poinsettias are tossed in the trash come February (that statistic is 100% made up based on my own personal experience…...of throwing them away every year!) Because they are difficult to grow indoors! I have heard people tell me they are easy and some people tell me they are difficult. After spending the better part of the day learning about them I am gonna go with the later - not so easy, but SO fun and beautiful for a season! We’ll dive into care and some anatomy (spoiler: they “flower” isn’t really a flower!) ad the incredible history behind these beloved Christmas plants.

 047. Healing and Growing After Loss | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 00:50:48

Healing from trauma and pain isn't all that different from growing. The two go hand in hand. Even when we feel as though we are taking three steps backward as we are forced to slow down while we grieve, God is preparing the soil of our hearts for something incredible. Today one of my Get Planty students, Hannah Underwood, joins me for such a heartfelt and genuine conversation about this very topic. The story of how this episode came to be is a good one in and of itself! Hannah has undergone some serious heartbreak and trauma in the last year and at the very same time experienced some of the most joyful happiness in her life. That's the funny thing about healing and growth, it rarely happens in the way we expect it to. Though this is a serious topic, we laugh and have such fun! Hannah is truly a light and it's such a joy to know her and learn from her. I am confident you're going to leave this conversation feeling encouraged and inspired. Hannah also shares about her experience taking Get Planty Course and it was such a gift to hear her thoughts and takeaways. Get Planty is open for enrollment right now!
