Care of Rubber plant Indoor

We have many relationships. Ones with our family, friends, pets and not to forget –– plants. I’m talking about the ones in your kitchen, living room and bedroom. They occupy those spaces and remind you of what it means to be in sync with the natural world.

It was not until my time in Thailand that I realized how happy I feel when I am around nature.

I lived with a few families. Some had makeshift homes from recycled materials or nicer homes with a running shower. The one thing they all had in common was that there was never any furniture –– but their plants filled those spaces.

If I were to injure myself or get sick, we would look to the garden or to an indoor plants for help. If I cut myself, we would cut a piece of aloe from the plant without damaging the plant. If I had a sore throat, I would chew on shards of ginger. If I had a headache, I would drink tamarind tea, which I would pick from the tree on their farm. Centuries of traditional Thai holistic care really came in handy.

There was something magical about holistic care and looking to nature for the answers. I started to look at plants as more of a way of life, and not just something I enjoy because of their impressive beauty.

My friend, Clayton Lewis, studied the relationship between people and plants while he lived in Nepal. He then moved to India and worked with plants for medicinal use while I was living in Thailand. He filled me in on his work over our Skype chats and made me want to learn more from my homestay families and their holistic methods. He too inspired me to purchase plants for my bedroom. He told me, “Plants remind you about being healthy. Having a connection with nature makes a big difference on the way you feel. You can cook them, use them topically and enjoy them.”

When I returned to Boulder, I purchased a few plants with my dad. I bought an aloe plant, an orange cactus and a four-foot cat palm for my bedroom. Initially, I placed extravagant plants into my shopping cart because of their beauty, but my dad told me that there was no way that I would be able to keep them alive. He told me I needed to start out with some easy ones, see how it goes, and later I could move on to the more complicated plants. I agreed –– I am a busy college student.

The best part of owning my plants is that almost every time I looked at my plants, I get this body high, because they remind me of precious moments in Thailand –– like a whiff of a beautiful smell that takes you back to a moment in time.


Indoor bulbs

There's a group of bulbs grown indoors that includes "amaryllis", paper white narcissus, hyacinths, and crocuses.
These are all really outdoor bulbs that can be cultivated indoors. The "amaryllis" (really hippeastrums) will come back year after year if you take care of them, but the rest are so exhausted afterwards that the most you can do is plant them out and pray for their recovery. These bulbs are actually hardy plants, the amaryllis being somewhat tender.
This group of bulbs are sold from, say, September through December and by this time of year won't be available
