Plants have been there for us from the beginning of time.
Cleaning our air, increasing humidity and lowering indoor temperatures, plus a million other functions. But let’s not get too technical.
It seems only recently that we have all realised the full potential of how much it can transform an indoor space aesthetically speaking. We can definitely get on board with this trend.
But how does one with an appreciation for plant children but a black thumb see through this dream? We have the inside scoop on a few of our favourite indoor plants to get your plant jungle started.
You can thank us later.
Rhipsalis: Easy to grow and add great texture to any part of the home. They seldom need to be watered more than once a week. A great tip with most indoor plants is to place your finger in the soil about an inch deep, and if the soil is moist there is no need to water it. Placement in your home should be away from direct sunlight, as this can burn their leaves.
Monstera Delisiosa: Cult classic for a reason. Each leaf is exciting to watch as they unfurl and also near impossible to kill. Place indoors in a room that is well lit and has filtered light. Let all the water drain before re-watering. If you think you cannot keep a plant alive, we always recommend starting with Monstera.
Peace Lily: Great for brightening those dingy dark areas of your home. They are also excellent at cleaning the air of the room they are in. If the leaves are turning yellow they might be getting too much light. If they drooping, give your baby a soak in the sink overnight. You are best off giving a good drench and letting the soil dry between watering as this plant is prone to root rot.
Now go run to your nearest gardening centre and get that indoor jungle started. It really and truly is that easy. I’ll time you..
