    Hoya Temperature Tolerance Guide in Celcius

    This is based on Vermont Hoya’s temperature guide which is in Fahrenheit, if you would like to read that, you can find it here. For New Zealand hoya fans, I have put an asterisk (*) by the hoya on the New Zealand MPI plant biosecurity index list. What is the MPI Index list? It’s a […]

  • Sending Plants in the Post

    Sending Plants in the Post

    I have sent plants to people in other parts of New Zealand successfully and I have done so unsuccessfully. I thought I’d share my methods with you, both successful and not. My Successful Plant Mail: (with a potted plant) I couriered a baby plant (marble queen pothos) down to my friend in Wellington and she couriered two […]

    Propagation Heat Pad

    Hi Guys! Sorry for the long silence, my life has taken a somewhat different direction from what I had planned. I’ll probably do a post about that when I’ve finished processing it myself, but for now, I thought I’d keep you updated with the plants in my life at the moment. I get a lot […]

    Painting Moths

    Hello friends! Sorry for the long silence, this year has been really hard for me for various reasons. So much so that I’ve given up drawing the IZS Comic for the time being. This was a really hard decision for me, one that I whipped myself over for months but for the sake of my mental […]

    My Broken Pottery Wheel

One of the first things we did was head over to the Auckland Art Gallery to see the Yayoi Kusama exhibition: The Obliteration Room. Before entering the […]

    When the Kiln Gets Too Hot

    On Saturday morning I was recovering from a severe hangover by lying in my underwear and moaning loudly on our purple couch. A bird was chirping outside the window and although I was thoroughly out of sorts, I knew it was a bird I’d never heard before. I dispatched Isaac to investigate, he called through the […]

  • The Process Behind Making Ceramic Pins

    The Process Behind Making Ceramic Pins

    My ceramic pins are a lot of fun to make, I originally made a single fox pin for my sister (which I believe I kept and never gave it to her), I received so much positive feedback about it that I decided to keep making them. They always start off as a ball of clay […]

  • The Beautiful People of Wellington

    The Beautiful People of Wellington

    We arrived in Wellington midday on Thursday and the sky could not have been bluer. Upon arriving we pulled our luggage out of the overhead lockers, I turned to Isaac as I donned my straw hat, “I wonder how long it will take for me to lose this to the winds of Wellington.” We then […]
