8 Signs You’re Becoming A #Plantita
Do you enjoy transferring your succulents into a terrarium more than going out for a drink? Welcome to the club.
If your own timeline and feed are getting flooded with gardening posts, and you search for succulent sellers more than bag and shoe peddlers in Facebook groups, then you must be turning into a #plantita.
Now don’t be embarrassed, because becoming a plantita only means you have found the time and energy to indulge your green thumb. And you’re also in good company, because we do know a few celebrities who are quite handy with potted plants. Here are the signs:
1. Your Instagram feed looks like this.
We have to say though; this IG grid is way more attractive than a bunch of selfies.
2. And your flatlays look like this.
We can’t blame you—it’s so pretty!
3. Your home is practically a #jungalow.
Is there a home underneath all those ferns and prayer plants and fig trees? (There is, and it probably looks amazing.)
4. You go to a weekend market and all you buy are plants (or pots).
But we think it’s much better than hoarding up on household goods or clothes that you don’t need.
5. Caring for your plant babies are taking over your fur babies…or your real babies!
The Independent UK once put out an article claiming that Millennials are obsessed with succulents because they can’t afford kids. We think it’s more of, you get to tune out and relax when doing indoor gardening, and it’s a welcome break from the daily grind.
6. Terrarium-making workshops are taking over your yoga classes.
Because the workshops are way more educational and fun than hitting the gym; plus, you get to take home a beautiful terrarium!
7. Your sole tambayan is Gardeners' Tambayan.
This Facebook group is one of the best online spots to get gardening and plant care advice, as well as tips on where to shop for plants and gardening supplies. Plus, you make some new friends along the way.
8. Succulents are growing out of your nails.
Well, maybe you shouldn’t do this—otherwise, how are you going to do your gardening?
