You might be an Indoor Plant Gardening Geek if…
You have a room in your house specifically for your plants. Bonus points if you also have a sink in that room to make it easier to water the plants. Double bonus points if there are so many plants in your house no one can tell which room is “just for the plants”.
You know what a “potting tidy” is. Bonus points if you have one and leave it out all the time.
Your most important holiday preparations involve potting up Amaryllis and Narcissus bulbs. Bonus points if you have given these as gifts to others, thinking they might enjoy growing them, too, even if there is no evidence of any plants in their houses.
You think that having indoor plants gives you the perfect excuse to wear your pruning holster with pruners around the house. Bonus points if you are wearing that holster right now.
You have kept at least one indoor plants alive for over twenty years. Bonus points if it is a night blooming cereus. (Oops, sorry, that might apply to just me.) Double bonus points if you think that keeping a plant for over 15 years means you have a long term relationship with it.
You keep a supply of potting soil on hand and have a good supply of empty pots, too, “just in case” you get a new plant. Bonus points if you have more than one bag of potting soil right now.
You keep your seed starting light stands up year around. (Wait, hold on that. That means you are a seed loving gardening geek. More on that in January, the official month for Garden Bloggers Seed Related Posts.)
You understand that indoor plants, beautiful as they can be, are not decorating accents, but require light, water, and nutrients to grow , and you are willing to rearrange everything else to give them the prime spots by all the windows.
If you aren’t an indoor plant gardening geek, you might still be a general all-around gardening geek.
