The creator of the “Urban Gardening Mom Vlog” Atty. Flor De Castro spoke on the three “S” as a ‘must know‘ among ‘plantitos‘ and ‘plantitas‘.  These are the Sunlight, Seed Germination, and Soil. The lawyer-blogger emphasized that one should know his/her plant’s needs. Some plants need full sunlight while others only partial sunlight exposure. And one must know the right kind of seed that germinates best in a tropical environment. Good soil with the help of potting mix will make plants grow well.

If you have the passion for growing plants, you can do it and the plants will thrive,” said the lawyer-vlogger.” And that you should allocate a little more time should you want to grow the varieties you like most,” she concluded.
