This week, we'll talk about about small spaces and different ways to have your plants displayed! After moving from NY to CO, I downsized immensely.

What should go in that less-sunny window? The Plant Daddies tackle a timely listener question in this month’s Chill 'n Chat, and after so long without plant updates, let each other know how their respective urban jungles/bogs/deserts are faring.
