花店日常-【森樹】

Florist Daily-【Forest Tree】

It is not impossible to have a tree in your home. If it is a small tree.

"How small is it?" This is a question that many customers who enter the store will ask. Many people's imagination of "family tree" mainly includes Qin Yerong, Sun God (also known as Miye Zhujiao), olive tree, and fortune tree. "But I don't have much space in my house..." It doesn't matter, I get it. Usually when we meet tree lovers who have troubles with land, we will recommend the mini version of the tree. The difference between it and the general forest is that the former is only a dozen centimeters and the size of a palm.


Small enough!

As a rule of thumb, many tree control guests tend to fall in love at first sight. Because of its size, it really fits in the desk position near the window. Especially in the era of WFH , a little more greenery in the interior will also make the living space less boring. In retrospect, the youngest Mori customer in the store used to be a little girl who seemed to have just started elementary school.


I especially remember her. One afternoon, she walked into the store with her mother. With plastic-rimmed glasses on her little cheeks, she looks a little nervous, but also has a seriousness that doesn't match her age. how to say? It felt like, worrying about something. Originally, when guests came in, I would take the initiative to ask them what they were looking for. But seeing her like this that day, I just said "Look at it slowly" and let her explore it by herself. (Lishen: I'm not being lazy~ I'm just afraid of making her more nervous, just like the sense of oppression that the salesperson keeps recommending to you when you enter the store...)

For the first ten minutes, no one spoke in the store, only the footsteps of a little girl slowly pacing. Most of the time, her mother just stayed by her side. I saw her sometimes bowing her head and thinking, and sometimes, like a "little manager", looking at each potted plant with golden eyes and fiery eyes. After a while, maybe it was because I was afraid that my sister would watch it for too long, plus I was silent from beginning to end, indulging in the "Flower World"... This would make us feel too strange. (Actually, it’s not bad, maybe I think the little girl’s way of picking flowers is too cute.) Later, my mother took the initiative to tell us that my sister actually wanted to buy potted plants for my father as a birthday present.


At this time, my sister finally spoke up, pointing her left hand to the small forest tree on the shelf. "I think this pot is good, can you take a look?" The aura of the mother and daughter is different. The mother has a stronger affinity, but the younger sister is like a little adult, very cool , and cherishes words like gold.

"Sorry what is this?"
"It's called a Japanese forest."
"I want this one, can I choose a pot?"

"Of course you can, there were too many plants just now, and the flowers were messy!"

Compared with the beginning, the little girl's expression was slightly relaxed. Presumably in her mind just now, there should be a war between heaven and man for a long time. Compared to that kind of plant, she quickly decided on the style of the flower pot, a pink and black pot. Usually after the guests pick the plants, we will put the plants in the pots, just like styling . People rely on clothes, and plants certainly do. After finishing the planting pot, the little manager looked at it very intently. And we adults, silently, waited for her opinion.

"It seems to be a little short... I'm sorry, are there any decorations for small animals or something?"

"Um... not much suitable, otherwise... how about laying gravel?"

In an instant, my sister's eyes lit up. Next comes more decisive decisions than plants and pots. She quickly picked the blue mineral stone, and then asked about how to grow it.

"Is your father going to put it by the window?"

"Does it have to be by the window?"

"no."

"It should be said that if it is by the window, water it once a week. If it is not near the window, water it every 10 , 20 , or 30 days."

"You have to remember~" Mom said with a smile. The serious-looking younger sister was still serious, and after a few seconds of silence, she said softly, "Okay."

"Thank you~ A total of 360 yuan, who will pay?"

"I pay!"

This should be the loudest sentence my sister has said since she came in. Mom smiled and handed her sister's wallet. I guess this trip, she should have been prepared. "Don't worry, your dad will like it~" we encouraged her.


Because the intention of giving the tree is much, much bigger than the tree itself.
