Plant in the Spotlight on YouTube
Iris has built up an enormous plant collection and regularly puts plants in the spotlight on her YouTube channel, Mama Botanica. This time in the spotlight: the Asplenium ‘Crispy Wave’, one of the ferns that purifies the air very well. Ferns are fine plants because they thrive in dark corners. But they are not always easy to care for. Luckily there is this beautiful fern: The Asplenium ‘Crispy Wave’, which is much stronger than other ferns and easier to care of.
It is a good plant for the bedroom, which will stand out with its crisp foliage. The Crispy Wave will grow very well in a place with indirect light and it is a pleasure to see this plant in the morning when you wake up. Iris is often told that ferns are so difficult to keep happy, so Iris has a tip for anyone who struggles with that; give this new fern a try! These ferns feel strong and durable, distinctly different from the fragile ferns.
It gives Iris peace and satisfaction to surround herself with plants and to be busy with them, to escape from the hustle and bustle. In this way she creates an atmosphere at home where she can relax. Plants lower your stress level, it creates atmosphere, you can concentrate better, and you become more creative. For example, to make nice blogs and videos, says Iris.
