Plantfluencer: Kiko Fernandez


In

this edition of Historias de Plantfluencers we talk to Kiko Fernández, media specialist and lover of plants and nature.



Can you tell us a little bit about yourself?

My name is Kiko, I live in Madrid and I work in the world of media, although my passions are plants and social networks, that's where @plantadictos was born.


I love learning from what people share on social media and sharing my experiences as well.

What was it that caught your attention to enter the world of plants?

I believe that plants have the power to relax us and abstract us from our surroundings. Living in a city like Madrid, it is difficult to find moments in which feeling close to nature, the earth, our origin and plants are a way of anchoring ourselves to our more earthly side.


What's your favorite plant?

It's the million-dollar question, I never know what to answer, sometimes I say it's the Monstera Deliciosa, because of its aesthetic potential and its ability to grow without limits, but I'm passionate about my Ficus lyrata and elastica.


The first plant I had was an aloe vera and its qualities never cease to amaze me, for me, who have some skin problems, aloe is necessary.

What's the trick to success with succulents?

The word 'drainage' is the secret of succulents, a hole in the pot to let out excess watering, or a good base of stones that allow you to keep the soil dry is the best way to keep excess moisture away from the roots, this is lethal.
