A houseplant meets personal growth podcast by Dusty Hegge (that's me!). There are such beautiful parallels between plant growth and human growth and I KNOW that is by God’s design. So, on Grow Well, we talk about both! Everything from soulful personal growth to how to keep your fiddle leaf fig alive - we’ll talk about it all!
Well, it's here. The finale for Grow Well Podcast.
Today I am sharing why I made the (very difficult) decision to stop the podcast and all the EXCITING things ahead!
I am so grateful for you, my planty friends.

056. How to Grow Succulents in Your Home
I've said it once and I'll say it again - succulents ae BAD houseplants! I really mean that. I am speaking in broad terms here but take heart in knowing that just because you've "killed a succulent" doesn't mean you are doomed to be a plant killer! It just means that a succulent, or that particular succulent, wasn't a good ft for you or the growing conditions your home provides.
In this episode I'll cover:
What makes a plant 'succulent'
Why succulents aren't very good houseplants (so you can breath a sigh of relief!)
How to care for succulents the RIGHT way
How to repot a succulent
How to find a houseplant that IS right for you: https://dustyhegge.com/quiz

Here for the houseplant care not for Jesus
Seeing a trend of houseplant podcasts now start to tour religious beliefs instead of sticking to just houseplant care. There’s literally no reason to incorporate religion into houseplant care. There needs to be a separation between the two, not everyone shares the same beliefs and it’s alienating the people who literally just want houseplant care advice, we don’t need to be converted into Christians. Disappointing podcast to say the least.
Nichey, Creative, Inspirational
Absolutely LOVE the way Dusty coincides the literal and metaphorical ways of plant growth and spiritual growth. Side note: I’ve always wanted to learn how to Garden and grow my own herbs. But since I never really took the time to invest in much research, I just bought succulents and cacti so I didn’t have to remember to water them as much. But after listening to this show, I think I may reconsider! The host really knows her stuff and is able to sprinkle some Jesus + motivation as well. 🌿
