What are those??? Do you mean my aloe and golden pothos? If you do then I have to admit I'm lazy so I just have my pothos in a mason jar of water which is sitting on the soil of my aloe 😂😂😂 @Honusea61

comment
Honusea61

No what I mean is the shelving. It's a type of plant holder like a shelf but it's shaped like a winding staircase with like 5 shelves. So not referring to the vase or pot just what the plants sit on. I had one once before with 4 or 5 steps.

Finally figured out a way to switch around pots while not having to use any extra soil (don't have any at the current moment). My old man cactus was needing repotting due to a top heavy issue. The aloe was just perfect sized for old man's old pot and the old aloe pot was perfect for old man. Definitely excited to see what this does for my aloe ♥️♥️ #propagation #cutting #succulent #succulents #newgrowth #newplants #newplant #closeup #growyourown #grownfromcuttings #growth #growlight #newgrowth
