Plantgasm - I love plants too much. By Derek Powazek.

Up Up Up


Check out the top, left plant* in my Woolly Pocket Vertical Jungle. In the wild, a plant like this would find a tree and climb it until it reached the forest canopy, where it could drink in the bright sun. But in the canopy of our house, the ceiling is a bit more immovable. I actually feel a little bad for the brave runner that just found out there’s no sun to be found up there.

* The label on the plant when I bought it was Philodendron “Ginny”, but it’s probably really Rhaphidophora tetrasperma. And though it looks like my Monstera deliciosa, it’s not actually closely related.
