Little More About Me. Aly – The Potted Pixie I’m Aly, a crazy plant mom to my beautiful, green children. My love for plants started long ago when I first discovered cacti, thinking they would be easy to take care of. As a beginner, I ended up having many plants die on my watch – but I continued to research, learn and experiment. Today, I have a thriving indoor jungle and they call me the Potted Pixie! I started this site to share everything I’ve learned about the beautiful world of houseplants to help yours flourish.
