From my research I saw that terracotta pots are good for this type of plant, because they allow the…

What I’m doing now that I’m not traveling

Does not traveling mean I’m counting the seconds until we can fly internationally again? Yes or no. I’m not going to lie. It would be awesome to step on a plane tomorrow.
