There you go: Now that I am in New Zealand for four weeks, there is no control whatsoever back home my munchkin has gone berserk! Luckily I have a friend who has the keys to my apartment to look after my plants and this is what I got from her! My little monkey has gone wild, like a real jungle animal, and he was all over the place climbing the plants. A real jungle monkey!
I love him dearly, he is my pet if you want so. And usually he behaves very well knowing his exact spot at home. But once I am out of the house, he takes over and becomes the jungle king. He also has a preferred seat to sit and observe the jungle. Oh and he is a cheeky fellow too – sometimes he pretends to be all innocent even though he aims to climb yet another plant. Such a little munchkin!
Well, I guess he will have a lot of fun during my absence. While I am discovering New Zealand (join me on Instagram if you like), he is the unrivaled jungle king. A real jungle animal after all!! See you all soon & cheers from New Zealand!

Hihi you quirky monkey 😉 I bet your owner will have at least as much fun as you in the jungles of New Zealand 😉
Oh I bet he does. I also hope he keeps the plants alive and happy during my absence:-)
This is so funny Igor, what a cheeky monkey!
He really is:-) Plus he’s a pretty good looking fellow, don’t you think:-)
Ha ha, so funny 🙂 . Beautiful pictures too!
I was wondering if you have any tried and tested tips for caring for plants when on vacations? Like increasing humidity?, self-watering?, and of course asking a friend to help out, like you have mentioned here. If you have more tips, I would love to hear from you! I am always so worried about going away and leaving my plants 🙁
I know Vin, that is pretty tricky! Especially during long trips like this 4-weeks trip to NZ! Usually I am not so worried about my plants when I am gone for a week or maximum two. I give them a thorough watering before leaving and that is good. The cacti and succulents are easy anyway. They don’t care too much, even when I am gone for four weeks. But this time I have used watering globes for some of my leafy plants. These will keep them from drying out too quickly. But it is not a solution for four weeks which is why I’ll have a friend over after two weeks to water the plants.
Ha, wanted to say ‘cheeky monkey’ too! Have a great time in New Zealand. I’m sure he’ll behave while you’re gone 😉
Cheeky monkey! I hope you are having a great time over there. So happy you managed to meet up with Mel! Bisous
Merci Elodie!! Oh it was so great to meet up with Mel!! And NZ is just as amazing as I imagined it!
He is sooooooo cute!
Hope you’re having an amazing time in NZ.

Thank you Tina!! NZ is really amazing. Lots more to discover!
Your plants really make a great jungle! And the little monkey always reminds me of “Curious George”. He also likes to do such funny things…

Thank you Daniella!! He is a cheeky fellow indeed:-)
