Not new to owning plants, but definitely new to wanting to extend my knowledge past "let me water whenever the soil is dry."

I personally got a Black ZZ Plant, Moneytree (off of EasyPlant), Large Snake Plant, and a pothos. Live in a small studio.

Is there any podcasts, content creators, or other sources of information besides this fishbowl that you used to extend your knowledge or deep dive into the field? I want to focus primarily on apartment/small living. Thanks!

I belong to various Facebook groups, instagram pages and subscribe to YouTube channels. There is a lot of information out there. Once you start looking at these pages, you algorithm will introduce you to even more content. You can start with smaller plants that aren’t pricey and learn as you grow. I’ve bought a lot of plants from other’s in various Facebook groups.
