Here are 3 tips and benefits to use houseplants right.
- If you don’t have a green thumb, don’t worry. Many people are concerned that they will waste their money by buying a plant that they can’t take care of. If this is a concern for you, start off with cacti and air plants. Each of these families of plants comes in a wide variety of sizes and looks. The best thing is they require very little watering or care. Just don’t get stuck by any cactus you choose.
- Read the plant’s care card or talk with an expert at the store before you buy. If you are prone to forget watering, be sure to get a plant that can go for longer periods of time without it. Be sure that you know what kind of light the plants need. If you buy a plant that requires a lot of light, don’t stick it in a dark corner of your home.
- Check for insects before you bring your houseplant indoors. Many houseplants may come with stowaways. Give your plant a good shaking off before you bring it indoors. We all like house-guests, but you may not like what is hiding out in that plant, so check it thoroughly before you bring it home.
Once you feel comfortable with the basics of taking care of a plant, you will be delighted with all of the style and colour that plants will bring to your home design. You can also pick out planters that are complementary to your overall design that will really make the big picture come together. Houseplants are a fun, attractive, and often beneficial addition to any designer’s bag of tricks. You’ll love the life and variety they bring to your decorating.
