Today we’re visiting with Alex Saint in Florida, who is not only a plant lover but a photographer, as you’ll see from the gorgeous images he’s captured. (For more, check out his instagram: @lordsaint_)
Alex says this little Monstera adansonii planted up in October of 2020 will always be a favorite of his because it reminds him of his late grandpa.
The same Monstera adansonii shows off again in April 2021, just after being repotted to encourage it to keep growing vigorously.
In the last shot, you could see a wall of cacti and succulents growing on shelves. Here’s a closer view of some of the plants on that wall.
It is easy to see how string of hearts (Ceropegia woodii) got its common name, its long trailing stems dotted with these beautiful heart-shaped leaves.
A Philodendron gloriosum is living up to its name. That is truly a glorious-looking plant!
Philodendron ‘Pink Princess’ has distinctive irregular patches of pink variegation.
Each leaf of Philodendron ‘Pink Princess’ emerges with a different pattern of variegation, all of them beautiful.
An Ikea cabinet turned into a mini greenhouse! LED lights keep everything growing happily, a great solution for people who want houseplants but lack enough natural light for all the green treasures they want to enjoy.

A huge specimen of one of the most popular and iconic houseplants these days, Monstera deliciousa.
Hoya carnosa, aka wax plant, has attractive, trailing, glossy green foliage all the time, but the beautiful flowers really put it over the top.
