Reine #18: What House Plant Are You?

A hand drawn image of nine plants in pastel colors. They are attached with the following descriptions: Maranata — High femme, high maintenance, totally worth it. String Plants — sensitive but sweet, everyone’s BFF bottom, Mystery Succulent — sentimental, day-dreamer, expert at first dates. Bird of Paradise — TTRPG, Gamer Girl, intimidating but shy, true vers. Herbs — Mom friend, sometimes naive U-Hauler. Monstera — Mommi Friend, into crystals/tarot, thirst trap Champ. Ficus — very cool leather dyke, extremely giving. Carnivorous — crafty/DIY dyke, kinda goth, excellent skincare. Fake — Top energy, buys lots of books, doesn’t read them.

  2. I want to say a Carnivorous, BoP, and Succulent combo. The only thing is that I’m not sure I have first date expertise. Sure, my first dates have all gone well, but can it be expertise if that first date is usually the only date? I’m just not sure.
