I have been trying to my transform my black thumb into a green one with several plants in Taiwan. The information I find online about caring for plants is most of the time not suitable for Taiwan’s humid and hot environment. If you have any tips about indoor/outdoor plants please share.
So far the non fail item in Taiwan is definitely mint and ferns. I was surprised to see how well Calatheas behave indoors here, even though they are famous for being very hard to care for plants. My collection is still small they they look just OK, as I am still trying to get the grip of this.
I gave my calathea to a family member and now I got an old and ugly one, will try to make it as beautiful as the other.
Will post here my messy collection

Another immortal plant
Didn’t take picture of the other balcony with the rest of it and some indoor ones.
I want to buy a monstera but haven’t found one in the Jianguo flower market yet.
Share your tips and what you have. What is the biggest obstacle you have found in Taiwan when caring for plants?
For me it is to keep a dehumidifier on in the bedroom so that I can save my closet and sanity but my plants hate it.
@MyManInTaiwan maybe can help with the tips input also?
