Growing up in a busy city like Lima, I didn’t have much direct contact with nature. Even when I lived in a house with a beautiful garden, plants never seemed to survive our care, despite our gardener’s efforts. So, when I moved to Switzerland, I was still on the defensive about giving that green touch to our apartment. I mean, what was the point? After all, “I don’t have green fingers” and “I can’t keep a plant to save my life,” right? It took me a long time to change that negative state of mind, and suddenly everything started blossoming. I wasn’t only providing care for the plant, but I was also listening to what they had to say. This time around, it was two-way communication. Now, how do you “listen” to a plant? Easy, using all your senses. Look at your plant and search for discolorations or unexpected shape changes. Are the leaves still perky? Feel the soil with your hands, is it humid enough? Are the leaves soggy? Smell the soil, does it smell weird or just earthy?
Since I started reconnecting with my plants, I can respond better to their needs and give them the care they deserve. I hope you found my experience helpful. Never forget: nature speaks to those who listen.
