a little plant tip

One evening this winter I walked into Home Depot and walked out with a new plant. I had some winter casualties and needed to replace them. I purchased a beautiful aloe plant. It was growing straight up and down and looked great in its new pot but eventually winter started to take it’s toll. I tried to keep it in the area with light coming in but we’ve had an extra harsh winter and light has been sparse. I noticed my plant began to lean and grow outwards searching for light… it also caused the plant to begin to tip over in the pot.

Having some extra stones (I used some in the bottom under the dirt) I put some on the top layer of the plant. As soon as I put them in the dirt on the side that was leaning over it stood up nice and straight. I spread the stones evenly across the surface and that was it! My plant is standing tall and hopefully will start growing upwards again. (I’m also making a better effort to get it in the sun).

Just wanted to share a simple plant tip. I know many people put stones in the bottom of the pot but I don’t see many put them on top.

And just like that, it’s standing up
