Retro plant haul!

I hit jackpot! My local Billigblomst had 50% off all plants and pots, so obviously I stood outside their doors the minute they opened. Good thing I was there early because people started pouring in, clogging the parking lot and road by the time I left the place. I didn’t really have anything in mind.. I mean.. I was there just yesterday and bought what I really needed.

I did bring these two home with me. They were already fairly cheap, but today I paid a whopping 20 DKK ($3) for this Monstera deliciosa and the same for a Ficus elastica variegata (variegated rubber plant). The plant stand cost 20 DKK as well.

They’re a lot different from the succulents I usually grow because well.. they’re not succulents. But they should be able to handle drying up for a few days if I’m away. I’ve been told at least the rubber plant is hard to kill. And they can grow in indirect light, which means they don’t have to take up space in my living room window. I’m officially building my own jungle!
