The greenhouse effect, UJB April 2016

The theme for Urban Jungle Bloggers this month was plants and glass. And the moment I read this, I rememberd I bought a little greenhouse a couple of years ago. At the moment I did not use it, but I immediately thought how I could use this greenhouse for this month's UJB.

In the gardencenter I spotted these little plants, and i thought they were really cute. I usually do not like a cactus, and I am always afraid that Silvia will get her nose hurt in one of them, but inside a greenhouse they can harm nobody (and no cat) and they look super-lovely grouped together.

I placed the plants inside the little greenhouse and closed the lid.

They now have a place in the sun and I am very pleased with it.


Unfortunately, this palm was too high to fit inside the greenhouse. Poor thing. So I put it into a glass candleholder and now it still fits with the theme of plants and glass. I did not want to leave it out!
Urban Jungle Bloggers (here) is an initiative from Judith (here) and Igor (here), who want to give more attention to our indoor plants. I really enjoy participating in their monthly themes, because it makes me look at my plants differently.

  1. Love your little greenhouse! It's so cute. I'm not that great with plants, so I admire anyone who can keep theirs alive. :)

    1. Somehow, most plants seem to like it in my house (a couple of exceptions of course).
      And yes, this greenhouse is very cute, I am also very happy that Silvia is protected from the catcusses! (not quite sure how you spell this, by the way, sorry!)

      Kind regards,

  2. Plural of cactus should be cacti? If I am correct :) I love such greenhouses, yours looks very nice with all the cacti. In my home it's the other way around - "normal" plants go to greenhouses and cacti stay out because a certain feline (Robert) is a plant MANIAC. They haven't hurt themselves to a cactus, ever, I guess cats are smart like that :)

    1. Cacti sounds right! Thank you :-)

      How funny that you have your normal plants in the little greenhouses, and your cacti outside. I guess your Robert learned the hard way not to mess with a cactus, and Silvia has not since I never used to have them. (I usually do not like them, but these small ones I adore)

      Kind regards,
