I bought my very first ever monstera plant last January, with very little confidence or faith that I wouldn’t let it wither away into a brown crisp. I’m so hit or miss with houseplants and have killed an embarrassing about of cacti even. (Succulents and cacti are actually NOT THAT EASY TO MAINTAIN for most of us people, honestly!)
Also, quick back story: Henry kept calling it a Monsta X plant because there is an awesome Kpop group by that name. So then I officially dubbed him Wonho after our joint-bias in that group (even though he is no longer in Monsta X and is currently living his best damn life as a solo artist!
Observe: Wonho last January on the day we saved him from dumb Lowe’s.
And here he is last week, November 2021.
What a beast!!
You can see that he is soaring over the buffet now.
He is so lush and has strong big boi energy.
I do talk to him every day (along with the cats, squirrels, my other personalities, the computer screen and basically any inanimate object I encounter throughout my sad and lonely work-from-home days) and I guess what they say is true re:talking to plants etc.
Wonho actually lives in a corner with several other large houseplants and that space looks like a mini rain forest, and that makes me feel calm.
I never would have thought I’d be a plant bitch yet here we are: first came succulents and now this.
Hey, let’s check in juman Wonho!
How it started (as a rookie in 2015).
And um…how it’s going. *fans self*
Whenever I exclaim, “holy SHIT Wonho is getting so BIG,” Henry always asks, “Which one?” Because truly it could be either.
Ok um on that note 잘 자요!
