Grow light and String of Hearts

I entered another giveaway on instagram. AND WON. They are always fun. Most of them are small businesses trying to gain followers or show appreciation. They will post a giveaway and to enter, you just like and comment then follow any other instructions on their post. They will do a drawing of those who participate and a winner is chosen. I was the lucky one.  

The latest giveaway was from a two small businesses that worked together for a great prize. One place was called Plantasia The Market. They sale plant accessories and more. You should definitely check them out online. From this business I received a Halo grow light. I will post a photo and link at the end of this post.

The other part of my winning gift was a this cute little plant called “string of hearts” This came from a plant enthusiast on Instagram known as “Plants.Pots.Possitivity”. I love this elegant plant and can not wait to watch it grow. String of hearts is a trailing plant so I needed to find a planter pot for it. 
While shopping at Target, I thought I would go check out the planters. That’s when I found the perfect little planter for my new plant. 

The vines are thin right now but it will grow quickly into a full pot that will overflow with a beautiful pink and green show of hearts. 


My daughter named her Yolonda. Isn’t she pretty? I have not decided if I want to keep her at the house or take her to work. I do not have any sunny places to keep her so she will need to use the grow light often. If I take her to work, I have a large window with a wide window seal to put plants on. I already have a few succulent there and they are thriving. 

This plant is rather rare and expensive so I am a little afraid that if I take it work, people will sneak cuttings from it without asking. There are a lot of plant lovers in my office and plants are a big conversation piece.

I will give you an update in a few months on how well it is growing. Wish me luck that I can keep it alive as my thumb is not a green one. 


You can get your own Halo grow light at plantasiathemarket.com.

  3. Don't know how I missed this one, but glad I checked. Very interesting plant (The String of Hearts). I love to see plants, but when I try, they die. Strange how 'Yolanda' actually seems to fit the planter. I smiled as I read it.
    Good entry... ;-)
