If you take three steps into our apartment, you will quickly realize one of us has a thing for plants. This slight obsession started a few years ago and our collection has continued to grow. So keep reading and you will discover a few of our favorite houseplants and care tips to make life a little easier on you:
A couple hints:
- Name your plants. It helps you remember to take care of them.
- For plants that don't need a lot of water (like a succulent), just pop an ice cube on top.
- If your plant starts to turn yellow, gut reaction is too much water.
- Try watering a little less and talking to it a little more.
If you are struggling with getting started on your houseplant game, my favorite spot to head is Lowes. They usually have great selections and some funky plants. Just remember to read the tag correctly and pick one that goes best for where you image it being (aka low sun or high sun). Don't fall in love with a cactus and just plop it no where near a window...give that fellow a chance!
Good luck to you and your houseplant!
