Keeping up with #ThePlantPerTable campaign

Few weeks back, I shared an update on the the plant per table campaign, but a brief recap will be helpful for those who are new in this space.

In a bid to create more awareness on the threat climate change posses on our environment,  we decided to launch a campaign to get a potted plant to every table in Lagos. While it is essential we extend this campaign beyond the borders of Lagos, we currently do not have the capacity to do so.

Greenweg is partnering with business in Lagos to educate people of sustainability and in doing so, creating beauty. Getting a plant on every work desk in Lagos might seem quite like an ambition, but we move regardless.

These two plants made their way to beautify an office.

1. The Cactus:



The Cactus is a greenweg favorite. Cacti occur in a wide range of shapes and sizes. Most cacti live in habitats subject to at least some drought. Many live in extremely dry environments. Because they are arid plants, frequent watering is not advised. Watering your cactus too frequently will result in a root rot.  Almost all cacti are succulents, meaning they have thickened, fleshy parts adapted to store water, which makes them great indoor plants.

2. The baby rubber plant:


Water the plant only when is clearly needed and a sprinkle is advisable. Allow the potted earth to dry out almost completely between waterings. Too much water even for short periods will result in some leaf loss and root rot may even bring on complete collapse of the plants.

The thick, fleshy leaves of these plants allow them to withstand short periods of drought. If at any time the leaves look unusually transparent, this probably indicates that the plant needs water.
In my experience, watering with a sprinkle once a week will suffice.

I really hope you like the table plants we have put up. Leave a comment below to be a part of our plant per table campaign. It’s that easy.

NB: All pots are hand made from clay and water and dried naturally.



Stay responsible, stay sustainable
