Our Home Mini Garden Tour

We all know that plants help us in so many ways and looking at them definitely brings peace of mind and tranquility. One of the hobbies that my mom developed this quarantine is to collect plants and make them grow. She’s honestly so in love with plants that you can see plants anywhere in our home. And I’m so down for it. So for today’s post, I will show you our home garden.

Why did we start a home garden?

Before I show you the pictures, let me tell you a little back story first. As most of you know, I’ve lived in Manila for my freshman year in university so I’ve had to leave home. Earlier this year (before the pandemic happened), my two older brothers also left our home and went abroad to work. So my parents were the only two left in the house and they were too busy with their own work that our house looked like something you wouldn’t want to live in.

Last March, because of the pandemic, I needed to go home and stay with my parents. I kept telling my parents to buy me a white paint so that I could paint the walls or our house and make it neat. After a long time of convincing, they finally agreed and as soon as the stores open, they bought everything I need to paint the house. After painting the walls white, my mom decided to buy indoor plants and everything just suited perfectly.

That’s where it all started. My mom and her sister likes to buy plants and it surprises me every time my mom goes home with a new set of plants. I couldn’t blame her, though! Seeing plants around us definitely helps with changing our moods.

Home Mini Garden Tour!

So this is it. I don’t know the names of all the plants we have, but if you’d love to know their names I can use the app called PictureThis and identify the plant name for you. Just comment down below.

And that’s all! I really wanted to give you guys a more detailed explanation for each plant but I’m no plant expert! Also, out of all the plants in our home, I only own one plant called Lavender Scallops.

My best friend gave it to me so that I could take care of it and make it grow. Sadly, we both thought that it was an indoor plant who only needs few sunlight so I’ve kept it in my room for a long time. I started to notice the leaves falling and I did my best to help the plant recover. The upper part still looks damaged but I am so glad there are new leaves that are sprouting which means that it’s still alive and growing! I’m so thankful that it recovered and I can’t wait to see how much it will grow more.

And that’s all for our home mini garden tour! These plants definitely helped improve the overall look of our house and as I’ve read in so many articles, they help purify air. It’s so good to look at these plants especially when I’m having a really tough day, it’s so calming to look at.

  7. Yess, it’s here! I lovee it ✨ I am a sucker for succulents, cause most of them can live indoors and are okay with just a little bit of sunlight.

    Jade plants are also my favourite out of all the succulents like your Momma? Hehe

    1. Thank you so much, AJ! I definitely love succulents too! They’re the first ones we had! Ack yes, my mom loves Jade plants so much. I’ve also researched that Jade plants are one of the strongest plants like ever but they are kind of toxic to pets! Thank you so much for reading, AJ. I appreciate it! x

  8. I am so in love with this post. You know how much we love plants and gardening and seeing your garden is such a treat. Your plants are healthy and so cute! I wish we were neighbors and we can swap plants. It would be a dream!

    1. Thank you so much, Markus and Micah! Ack, it’s really dreamy! My mom and my aunt always swap plants and it’s like a never ending process, which I really love! Thanks so much for reading and I’m so happy you loved this post!

  9. Beautiful, beautiful and beautiful Jirah. We do not have a sorta garden at home but we’ve got some vegetables that make great addition to meals. I never heard of PictureThis app before. Thanks for that.

    1. Thank you so much, Eromonsele! At the back of our house we’ve also planted vegetables which really come in handy when we’re out of grocery! It’s a really great app. It identifies the name of the plants and you can diagnose your plants if you notice something wrong with them!

      Thank you so much for commenting. I appreciate it a lot.

      1. You’re very welcome. Ours saves us on different occasions for food and medicine.

  10. I love your little garden!! All the plants look so cute 😍 I have also started “collecting” plants during the pandemic and it always improves my mood so much when I see them in my room! They’re like my babies πŸ˜‚

  11. Wow! You have so many plants and they look so cute! I feel like they wouldn’t last long if they lived with me!

    1. Ack I could totally relate!! It seems like all moms now are taking care and collecting plants! Wow that is really cool and amazing!! Thank you so much! Have a nice day too! ❀️

  15. That is a lovely collection of plants at your parent’s house. Quite a few of them! That is great you managed to save the last plant and it recovered. Hope it will grow tall with more leaves. I don’t have plants at home at the moment. I live in an apartment which is quite small. But I have thought about getting an indoor plant at some point πŸ™‚

    1. Thank you so much! Recently my mom added more plants and it’s really looking good right now. πŸ™‚ Oh yes, plants could definitely improve the overall look of your apartment! Best of luck with it! x

  16. You take great photos! I love how lively the plants looked.

    You know, I have been following your blog and I just realized now that you don’t appear on my reader. I have unfollowed and refollowed you now, I hope it does get updated <3.

    I have missed a lot!

    1. Thank you so much, Janis!

      Oh no. Thank you so much for telling me! Sometimes my followers don’t really see my latest posts in the Reader, I don’t know why. I have troubleshooted my blog so many times but it says everything works well. I’m thinking it’s a Jetpack issue. Not really sure though.

      Also, I visited your site and I thought I was already following you. But it appears that I haven’t. πŸ™ I followed you now. <3

      1. Maybe that’s because of it…
        you’re fortunate to have knowledge about it because if it were US, hahaha… we would not know how!

        Thanks for following me! By the way, I love your name!

        1. Honestly, I opened a lot of topics in the forum! 🀣

          Aw, thank you so much! It really means so much to me. ❀️
