Enjoy the colors of your home garden with Trello

Sending love to the Trello queen - @Jodi LeBlanc 

 

The Awesome Author Badge is Live, so as my passion for growing a little piece of green heaven at home. Two shots in one topic! 

 

Recently I bought a few more plants for our dining room. After the first couple of days filled with joy about how gorgeous my new plants are, I flew into a small issue: I couldn't remember the specifics of each plant and its water, light, and soil preferences. Oops.

One board to rule them all, you know! Again, Trello saved the day with the ability to adapt to every situation and use case.

 

How was the idea born?

In less than a second, like "I should make a Trello board for that!". ("Why don't you figured that out 2 days ago, Captain Obvious," said my inner self.)

How was the idea executed?

  • I made a catalog of each plant I grow
  • Done research on its specific needs
  • Listed the most important: water, sunlight, moisture, and transfer it to labels
  • Wrote a short description in each plant card: what to look for and what to avoid
  • Took beautiful photos, and put that to work right away

And Voila, another Home Case solved with #Trello

All my love to you too @Teodora _Botron_ ! This is an absolutely beautiful board and so functional - well done :) I knew you had a green thumb, but you are now a botanist! In University I took a botany course and we went out in the field with our waterproof notebooks and studied plants, we even had to learn all of their scientific names, great memories of that class :)

I may have one of these as well!

When I turned 39 (April 2019), I decided that I was going to pick my own mid-life crisis - I was going to collect orchids!

Obvioulsy, I made a Trello board, which grew a little bit over the following few months:

Glad I'm not the only one who uses their Trello account to keep track of their plants! Surely we can't be the only ones!

@Jodi LeBlanc Is that anything that you haven’t mastered yet? 😮

@Esme Crutchley I adore orchids! These are one of my favorite flowers, and your board is astonishing. Only can imagine the beauty of the place that you are keeping them. How many so you have so far?

I dreamed to have a blue orchid, and when I finally got it, it turned out that the flowers were actually colored. So I now have a white one 🙄

@Teodora _Botron_ yeah blue orchids don't exist in the wild, which is a real shame, but alas until they manage to do it naturally, a dye is the only way!

Ummm, I think I have a LOT now! I have 5 minis now, the only one I'm missing (yes missing, it's like a Grail!) is a yellow mini, I have 2 or 3 multifloras/mediums and a bazillion bigs!

But I've now run out of space, I've had to utilise a bathroom shelving unit to put the minis on in the kitchen!

They were a bit of an addiction for a while, but having run out of space, I've had to curb my spending, or save up for a bigger house with a bay window!

This was taken in April, things have escalated a little bit since then!

Then I accidentally bought some more, so I had to use an Asda shelf divider for cupboards on the draining board for more space:

@Esme Crutchley  I started to type "this is absolutely stunning" and then glanced up and realized that's exactly what Jodi had just said. So I will go with "totally awe-inspiring" instead!
