So jealous of the orchids posted here! They are so hard to take care of. I've got one cactus and a monstera plant and that's about all I can keep alive!
I actually had no issues with orchid (mini), but I have killed succulents…

I got a few new greens. I’ve googled how to take care of them prior to buying to make sure they’ll be ok if not thrive.

Nice philodendrons!
I would think philo and Syngonium are two of the least fussy houseplants. Even if they are dying (unfortunately), you can do cuttings and plonk them into new pot and high chance they will grow.

I’m only keen on foliages so not sure how difficult it is when it comes to orchids. Fun fact: Orchid is my country’s national flower :smile:

Some of my philodendrons that just need little TLC (don’t think I’m very good with plants to begin with) :

Is that hints of white? Wizard?

Eta, one of the plants the moonlight, with just sun has really stretched its leaves.

Can someone help me, when would I typically upgrade to a bigger pot? I want it to grow as big as possible.

And is this something that would like a moss stick? (Also where do you guys go for moss sticks).

You can find moss stakes at Amazon. I like the green ones as they blend in better so perhaps type the color you want also.

I’m a horrible plant mom. I thought because my window didn’t get really bright light, that it’s best to put the plants on window sill because that’s where they’d get light (where I live it’s more foggy then sunshine).

Welps, most of the plants survived (except my poor monstera) however the leaves are starting to yellow/burnt.

So now I’m moving them away from the windows…
