The Sill May 2020 Box Review
The plant was very carefully packaged, just like always. This is a good thing because this little one had a rough trip to me by the looks of it! Aside from some dirt loss, the plant itself was totally safe.
There was an envelope with some additional info on my new friend. Though this pamphlet says I have received a Calathea, I am pretty sure my plant this month is actually a Bird’s Nest Fern.
Bird’s Nest Fern
Small Mint Dolores Planter – Buy a medium size here for $37.00
FYI: This plant arrived about 5 inches tall inside the planter and about 10 inches across.
Though this is my second Bird’s Next fern from The Sill, I do love these because they are wildly wavy and low-light tolerant. And I am way into this planter! It is my first from the Dolores style and I am a little bummed out they don’t sell the small size anymore. I feel like it somehow complements the wild and free vibes of the fern. These ferns are tropical, so they do like a little humidity. I have one that I keep in our bathroom and it seems to love the steam from the shower! There is a little hollow hole of leaves in the center which form a slight cradle shape, which I am guessing is where the name came from. I mean, if I were a bird, I would totally sleep in the center of this fern.
These little leaves are too cute. They remind me of crimped ’90s hair in the best way.
The Verdict: My May delivery from The Sill was maybe not the plant I should have received but it was still one I loved. And the planter was a homerun style-wise! During this time where I am not really venturing out to the greenhouses quite yet, this is a happy new spot of green for my living room or office.
