They say keeping a houseplant alive is practice for looking after a pet, which in turn prepares you for babies and children. So when our plants repeatedly die on us (yep, even cacti—sigh), it’s somewhat disconcerting. Do we even adult?
Luckily, cute-as-hell online nursery Botanicals by Bella is hosting a week-long pop-up House Plant Festival at Westfield Chermside, with free daily events and workshops that go back to the very basics of cultivating your green thumb.
Bring a cutting to the mini succulent propagating workshop that you’ll swap with someone else before you learn how to make it grow—adorable! You can also be schooled on house plants 101, succulents 101, or get loose at the late night plant party feat. a VIP rare indoor plant release and a goodie bag of cuttings (ok, maybe not that loose).
Botanicals by Bella will also be peddling their leafy wares IRL—think succulents, cacti, rare house plants and terrariums—so you can replenish your stash of flora before you (hopefully) don’t kill them this time round.
Best of all, it’s all free!
