The SuburbanSill plant collection has grown leaps and bounds since I started this blog in the fall of 2018. My plant shelf is overflowing with rescued plants, new propagation and old plant friends so it only felt right to have a little show and tell. This plant tour takes a look at my east facing window which gets direct morning sun and bright light all day long.
The east window is the perfect spot for sun loving succulents and cacti, but since it is winter you will also find some plants that love bright indirect light. It should be noted that some of these indirect light, loving plants won’t be living on this shelf come summer, but for right now, the light level is just right.
You might recognize some of these plants from here on the blog, but as many plant collections go, things are constantly being shuffled and moved. In this video you will catch a glimpse of some of my favorite varieties such as my large Monstera deliciosa, my recovered ‘Coral Fire’ Aloe and the beautifully variegated Peperomia obtusifolia.
Since my Latin skills are lacking, I can only note common plant names off of the top of my head, however, you can check below for a list of the plants mentioned in the video and their proper plant names.
