Urban Jungle Bloggers | My Plant Shelfie

My plant shelfie | My Paradissi #urbanjunglebloggers

Here's a post I've been meaning to write quite some time now. Actually, since I first found out about the Urban Jungle Bloggers I wanted to be part of the team. Have you heard them? Igor of Happy Interior Blog and Judith of Joelix have created an online platform for bloggers to share their love on plants and all sorts of interior greenery.

My cup of tea precisely! As I've mentioned before, living in a ground floor apartment in the center of the city and with no outdoor space, has left me craving for nature more than I could have ever imagined. I try my best to keep my window sills flooded with plants but that won't be anywhere close to satisfy my thirst for those invigorating green creatures.

Now, with my living room redo, I created a specific spot to bring together some more of my lovelies with the help of two white IKEA lack shelves. And, since its only a couple of weeks that I completed the project feels like I'm quite on time for an Urban Jungle Bloggers shelfie. Love how this wall now feels fresh and vibrant. The plants I've picked seek for very little care and attention but create a big impact on the white background. I also have this snake plant I kept in a vase (with just water) for more than 3 years (!). I don't know how it manages to survive for so long without any soil but I'm so glad it does ;). In the photo below, I've placed it inside a leather bag as I've recently (read: this morning) managed to break the vase. As it seems, I'm quite satisfied with its new container I'm thinking of just leaving it this way.

  4. Oh my! This looks so wonderful Eleni! It makes me so happy to read that plants were an important part of your recent living room redesign and the result is just gorgeous! And apparently your snake plant is very very tough, it fits so well in the leather bag too. Welcome to our green family! <3

  7. Which is the plant on the right that looks like an exceptionally fun head of hair in the third picture! It's particularly great in this setting -- you did a great job capturing the mild chaos and craze of a jungle with a beautiful white space. Cheers!

    1. Thanks Reka :) The plant you're referring to, I think is called Dracaena. I have it a couple of years now and instead of growing a trunk it keeps growing its 'hairy' leaves long!
