I have a Rose Wand called "The Wand of Retribution" I found it at a friends giant bonfire, I was attracted by its straight shape and thorns, I kept it at it's original length of 25 inches long.
It has been used in one spell casting only, to receive a fair settlement in a Will.

Ive had lovely experiences with Broadleaf Plantains. I find them to be very outgoing plants, even flirty sometimes with people they deal with. Very hippie vibes, pleasant.

I keep an extremely large (16 inches across) African Violet on my desk at work.   Mostly because I love them, but also because they are supposed to be "protective."

I also use my plants - cultivated and wild - for food, medicine, and treats.  I have some apothecary's roses, for example that I infused into fractionated coconut oil for fragrance and moisturizing (will be using for lotions, hair pomade, and candle annointing later), rose liquor, rose honey, dried rose petals, rose bath salts, rose jam, and rose wine.

If I were more clever, something interesting would appear here...

Grow them, kill them, weep for them. Grow them again.

Eat them, drink them, smoke them, wear them.

Tincture them and distill their oils.

 

Capture their Alchemal essence in a spagaric preparation.

 

Grind their body, blood and bones to make your incense.

Carve them to make the tools of your craft.

 

Plant them to guard you home and boundaries.

 

Visit them and leave offerings of yourself to help connect with their spirits.

 

Sleep with them, meditate with them, lay with them and put down your roots.

That was beautiful!  I am "stealing it" as a note for myself.  <3

The neighbour gave me a big Italian Flat Leafed Parsley, after I cut all the leaves off, I was left with the roots and crown of the plant. I decided to try and save the roots in a glass, and yes, it is thriving by the window and looks like a little Harry Potter Mandrake plant.

I potted up a new batch of succulents from my Daughter in Law's garden, I gave her some of mine. My Christmas Cactus is blooming like crazy, I just brought it in from outside. I guess it is saying "Thanks Mom".
