Certified plantita Aubrey Miles has learned so many things from indoor gardening through the years, and one thing she realized from this discipline is its being an art form in itself, for many reasons.
“I can say indoor gardening is like a piece of art,” the actress stated on her Instagram page last Saturday, July 17, as she showed fans a series of photos of her indoor plants. She expressed her amazement at observing her plants go through the process of “survival of the fittest.”
“You would only know that your plant has adjusted to your place after [two to six] months. Yes, this month your new plant can be the prettiest of them all but the hardest part is the maintenance,” she added.
While there a lot of “pros and cons when you consider indoor gardening,” Miles said the best part is when “your plants are in a controlled environment.”
“You just need to make sure the environment you give is similar to their natural settings,” she advised. “I have limited space so I’m very choosy when it comes to my indoor plants. It’s pretty tricky but that’s the fun part of it. I try my best everyday, literally everyday. That’s why I make sure my daily routine includes my indoor plants.”
She then expressed her admiration for those who do both “indoor and outdoor gardening for the longest time,” and encouraged those who are interested to try both.
Miles has been a plantita for years now, even before the boom of indoor gardening amid the pandemic. Her recent plant acquisitions include a P250,000-worth obliqua peruvian and a P300,000-worth variegated billietiae. JB
