Bring your room to life by adding greenery! Plants are not “one size fits all”, some require more attention than others. You may travel often, lead a busy lifestyle, or (like me), can’t keep a darn plant alive. This post will help you identify which houseplant you should bring home!
Choose easy-care plants
Some plants like to be left alone. If you’re busy with work and travel often, avoid the hassle of hiring a sitter to water your plants and pick one of these green machines. These plants thrive off of little water.
Notes: Pathos require little water, let the soil dry out in between waterings, yellow leaves are a sign your plant is getting over watered
Tip: Put this plant of a high shelf and let it hang down
Notes: This plant can be left without water for up to three weeks, keep out of full sunlight in a shady spot
Notes: This plant should be watered every two weeks and requires some maintenance as it thrives in humid conditions and may need extra fertilizer in its soil
Notes: This plant can grow in any lighting condition, be sure to keep the soil fairly dry
PRO TIP: Use a colorful pot or place the plastic pot in a basket to style your plant into your space!
Notes: Ever considered a fake plant? These days it’s tough to distinguish the difference and I must admit, fake plants are pretty low maintenance.
Small space, no problem
Note: Make sure to keep your succulents in a container with proper drainage, these plants require dry soil
PRO TIP: Since these plants are small, get creative! Make a work of art on a shelf or desk by mixing and matching different types of succulents.
Note: Place your cactus on a windowsill for full exposure to sunlight!
If you don’t have a green thumb, no problem, you’re not alone! These plants are fairly fool proof and are a great place to start when searching for your new green friend. An alternative is to purchase fake plants. They still provide a natural pop of greenery in your space and are certainly easy to care for!
Own your space.
