I have two packages with Hermes at the moment and their tracking updates are the most confusing thing I ever seen...

I got some sweatshirts based on movies, and a t-shirt from a fancy New York restaurant. My friend Patrick was very lucky to get reservations there, the food was to die for!

I asked Patrick but it sounded like murder trying to get one.

Ordered a new plant last night and it arrived today behold a Thaumatophyllum bipinnatifidum AKA Philodendron Selloumn

Those leaves :wub: the more mature it gets the fenestrations will increase.

I put some cinnamon sticks on top of the soil to get rid of any bugs as I heard pests hate cinnamon.

That's nice. Looks like something from dinosaur times. Have you got any ferns?

I almost bought a fig tree yesterday in Morrisons but the wife dragged me away and put a stop to that. Too many plants!

Thanks it does look quite jurassic doesn't it hehe. Can't wait to watch it grow as this plant demands a lot of space but I'll prune it down if it gets over the top and make smaller plants with it.
I just have a normal Boston Fern in the bathroom at the moment. Ordered a Crocodile Fern too as they seem popular lately but Hermes lost it :fp:. Do you have any ferns?
Fig trees (Fiddle Leaf Fig/Ficus Lyrata) are really nice, amazing leaves and looks kinda high end. I wanted a fig tree too but ended up with a smaller bush like one but its still over a meter tall, just no tree branches. What were the ones in Morrisons like and how much?

I get most of my plant ideas from this shop https://www.conservatoryarchives.co.uk as they always have such an amazing selection, their instagram :wub: but often I go elsewhere and get a cheaper/smaller version. Its amazing how a larger version of the same plant can demand so much more £. Plus I like to watch my plants grow so often getting a smaller one at a fraction of the cost is worth it.

Clothing company Uniqlo has been flooded with orders for their new AIRism face masks, with queues in their Japan stores snaking round streets and their website crashing due to the demand. Uniqlo are famous for their well-made basic items in minimalist, functional styles, and the new AIRism masks are made from one of their iconic materials. The breathable fabric is the same as used for their underwear. It’s quick-drying and cooling, which apparently makes the masks more comfortable to wear during everyday use.

Nike had 30% off everything on their site a while ago so I ordered me some new Pegasus running shoes. They had already been reduced from £100 to £70 so managed to get them for about £50.

I had been using my old Asics for four years and really should have replaced them a while ago.

Got this Tephrocactus Geometricus cactus off a seller on eBay who grows them himself. They are native to Argentina and quite rare. Its quite slow growing apparently but each year it should grow a new ball. I love how spherical it is.

And got this beautiful set of Lithops from Conservatory Archives shop in London. They are also known as Living Stones and are found in South Africa. I really like how nicely they are presented here.

Something about that last picture is really unsettling.
