They say the first thing you need to do to deal with a problem is to recognize that it exists. Well I have a problem and its that I’m not obsessed enough. There! I said it! Those who know me, that is not what you were expecting was it? According to the standards of those close to me, I have an obsessions for plants, however I beg to differ. Here is why.
1. First of all, I don’t have enough plants to be considered maximally obsessed. Having under 50 plants, I think barely counts. Ok,, granted I live in an apartment and cannot go all out.
Although I do daydream of when I have a backyard and my own greenhouse…oh the collection I would have. I feel if I was obsessed as they say, I would find a way to fill every nook and cranny of this apartment with beautiful greens. Then again that would have been the case had it not been that my apartment barely has any natural light coming through to the interiors. Which brings me to point number two.
2. If I was obsessed, every artificial light in the apartment would be replaced by grow lights. Yes the bathrooms would be outfitted with high intensity cool and warm bulb fluorescent lighting where you would need sunglasses just to enter.
Although I recently swapped two 60 watt bulbs for two cool white 100 watt equivalent compact fluorescent lighting in the guest bathroom But we are not talking about that. And how about some red and blue LED lighting in the bedroom for optimum plant growth and flowering. Who need lights in the bedroom anyway.
3. Now lets look at the words obsess and obsession and you will see it does not apply to me at all.
Definition of Obsession (google): an idea or thought that continually preoccupies or intrudes on a person’s mind.
Side note: *Just discovered the use of strike through and went crazy with it. Sorry it wont happen that often moving forward. I promise*. 🙂
