Choose the best plant for your indoor space

 

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.

Golden Pathos Plant

 

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

Fiddle Leaf Fig Tree

 

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

Succulents

 

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.

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.
