Like that brass pot...is it actually a planter or something else repurposed as one

Arch at Rang said...

Sudha-It's called a 'Paddhi' a vessel to measure grains. I have used it as a holder:-)

Hi Archana:

Have been following your lovely blog for more than a year now..but here is my first comment! :) I love the posts which have pics of your house or your ideas and tips!

Here are two questions for you. Please answer them if you have the time:
1. I always see that you use new plants in locations where I had seen different plants in older posts. How do you do that? Do you move the old ones to your balcony and bring in the new ones? becoz all your indoor plants are small..so it seems to me that they cannot be too old!?
2. You put your plant pots in lovely brass containers. How do you maintain the brass pot? how do you prevent oxidization? Do you clean them everyday or week?

Sorry...I love indoor plants and would love any tips from you!! :)

Thanks much,
-Vidhya

Cool Archana

My sister in law bought me a parai from palakkad..She was suggesting a similar set up too...I guess the paddhi and para (nazhi)must be the same thing..

Neat! I went read & commented. I love your work archana & what a terrible pity that I fell ill the very day I had to meet you :( my loss

vidhya- Answering your questions:-)

I always move plants around. They all need sunlight from time to time:-)
Most of my plants are succulents that take very long to grow...so they remain small:-)

For brass containers I give them a scrub every month with 'Pitambari' powder/Tamarind pulp.

Thanks everyone:-)
