Has anyone checked what particular plant dani was holding here?
As a person from a family of plant lovers, I think it’s one kind of calathea and the meaning of it is “new beginnings”
Dani really put some thought and research on how she would propose ... The plant she chose symbolizes she wants to begin her married life with Jamie no matter how short that would be.
I really need therapy because of this show ..

Plant of the Day
Friday 13 November 2020
The houseplant Calathea zebrina (zebra plant) has leaves with a velvet texture created by a covering of cone-shaped cells. As a native of Brazil the plant is found in the understory of tropical rainforests where the leaf surface spreads water slashes over the surface and allows it to dry rapidly in the damp environment. These properties and the way they are achieved by this species are being explored for new technological applications. This plant was part of a ‘Plants Inspiring Design and Technology’ trail at Cambridge Botanic Garden, UK.

Hello! I love your garden. I have a 7yo autistic son. He is obsessed with plants and nature. He cried when some local trees got destroyed in a wind storm. I have a problem which is that I kill everything I try to grow, his heart breaks every time 😔 I research how to care for every plant we get, but somwthing just always happens and ai do not understand 💔 Our local nursery shut down with the construction of a Lowe's, and I am having a difficult time finding someone to ask in the community. I was wondering what a good plant is that we could grow (mostly indoors, we have an apartment on a busy road) is that would be easy to care for and hard for me to kill. We have plenty of cacti and succulents, possibly something leafier. Thanks so much if you can help. I am trying to be an encouraging mom.
Unfortunately, houseplants are some of the harder ones to take care of- plants really, really, REALLY want to be outside So if you CAN put these out on the balcony for summer, it will do them a lot of good. For leafy plants (and cacti/succulents) indoors, I reccomend getting some full-spectrum aquarium lights or those purple plant lights to make sure they can photosynthesize properly. My short list of pet-and-kid-safe, hard-to-Kill houseplants is:
Cast Iron Plant: It's so hard to kill, it might as well be made of Cast Iron. it's a nice leafy, if kind of plain-looking plant that does a GREAT job cycling oxygen and not fucking dying as long as you remember to water it at least once a month.
Spider Plant: Mildly hallucinogenic for cats, if that's a concern. Also a pretty leafy air-cleaning plant that's hard to kill. Put it up where it can dangle a bit for best effect.
Arcea and Parlor Palms are small palm trees that do GREAT indoors. Ponytail Palms are kind of a different thing but also very hardy indoors.
If you live somewhere humid or can keep the temp/humidity high (+68 degrees and +60% humidity) inside, you can keep some real neato tropical plants very easily (srsly, these things are immortal as long as they stay moist), like Bromeliads, Dwarf Banana Trees, and carnvorous plants like Venus Fly Trap and Pitcher plants. If you have a window in your bathroom and someone takes a shower every day, you can just leave the pitcher plant hanging from the ceiling or on a high shelf where it can get light in there and it will THRIVE.
If it's not quite sultry enough for tropical plants, there are still lots with fun patterned leaves like Mosaic Plant, Pink Polka Dot Plant, Calathea and everything Peperomia- it's huge genus and all of it pretty.
I know you have a lot of succulents already, but Christmas Cactus is mad easy to care for and blooms twice a year like fireworks.
If you're not concerned about pets or children eating them, there are even more leafy, floweing, fun plants you can keep indoors. You just needs some REALLY GOOD artificial lights, a reliable thermostat, and to get really good at remembering to check to see if a plant needs to be watered before watering it- Houseplants are more likely to die of over-watering because houses have relatively high humidity so they respirate the water out a bit slower. You test to see if a plant needs water by poking your finger in the dirt- cold and wet means it has plenty, just cold means it needs water, and just wet means it needs way less water and probably a few holes poked in the bottom of it's pot for drainage.
Good luck and tell your son he's awesome!

“Child” ~ Garazeb Orrelios / LiraSan inspired floral art! 
I know it’s not a lightsaber, but I still wanted to do one for the Bo-rifle because I love it so much! I wanted to put more flowers in, but it was getting a bit crowded for them and so I stopped. I like how this turned out though. XD
Plants incorporated: Gladiolas, Spring Crocus, Lavender, Asters, Marigold Petals, Calathea leaves, a single White Rose.

Love calatheas but can’t keep up with their light and humidity needs? Try keeping their cousin, ctenathe “Amagris,” which behaves like a calathea but can tolerate lower light and drier conditions.
