My two year old took this photo of me on accident and I kinda like it! My name is Dusty and I am all the things here at Revive Nursery. My goal for Revive is to grow it to be a brick and mortar with all the houseplants you could dream of, event space for workshops, plant education, and intimate event rentals, and a space for you to sip on tea and pour overs (surrounded by ALL the houseplants). I plan to sell handmade goods (like my soy candles!) and foster radical generosity.
In the mean time I'm over here growing all plants, developing my soy candle line (coming on April 2nd!) and doing my best to be present as a mom of two very littles.
Also, my favorite late night snack is cereal. (Because I felt like you should know.) What is your favorite late night snack!? #olympiawa#downtownolympia#pnw
Spotlight on my little fiddle leaf fig for #flffriday . I bought it as a baby for $18 and it’s growing pretty quickly. You don’t have to start out with a huge (sometimes pricy) one. Just treat it right. Put it on a ($5 Ikea) plant stand like this if you want some height. Give it bright light and wait for soil to dry before watering. It also likes filtered water. Yes they are divas 💁🏼♀️. My first flf was a plant fail. I overwatered it (didn’t wait for topsoil to dry) and all the underside leaves turned color and fell off. Then I decapitated it 😱 and tried to propagate the top in soil with rooting hormone to see if I could start over and bring back its bushy character. It never stood a chance since I basically forgot about it 🤷🏼♀️. I learned so much from that experience though. Failures are one of the best ways to succeed in the end. 💚🌿#plantfailfriday#foliagefriday (PS I really wish I had a philodendron in this pic 🤦🏼♀️😜).
