Velvet Leaves Collection

Hi. I’m Sarah. I live and grow Aroids in Adelaide, Australia. I started growing houseplants in general, but it was my first Philodendron, a simple heart leaf (P. hederaceum), that got me started on Aroids. Not long after, I saw the velvety leaves of a P. Micans for the first time, and there was no turning back for me.

Velvet Leaves, started as a way of keeping track of the plants I have and the plants I dream of adding to my collection. It has now evolved into a collection of information that I have collected, especially in the form of profiles on different Aroids. It is also a way to share my experiments and projects.

I grow my plants both indoors and in my Greenhouse. I work alongside my partner in crime, Molly the cat. I love to propagate new plants to share, swap and sell, to help pay for my plant addiction. I would love to find a way to make my plants a career, but we will see.

I live with a chronic illness and this site has been a way for me to stay involved in my passion for Aroids, especially on days where I have been unwell. I have had ample time to research plants and topics related, so why not write about my findings.

My condition is called CRPS (Complex Regional Pain Syndrome) and if you want to know more please visit my blog Attack Of Th CRaPS.

Thanks for reading my blog. I hope you got something out of it.

Happy Growing. Xx
