House plants can be a great way to liven up an indoor space. But with limited room and the short life spans of plants, it can be problematic to maximize your space with plants that thrive. Well, never fear! Here is a list of some plants that can stand up to the test of time and some great ideas for how to best utilize your space.
Hanging Plants: Not all your plants have to be crammed onto your windowsill. Hanging them from the ceiling is a great way to limit clutter while providing an aesthetically pleasing look to your home. This positioning will also ensure that your greens receive plenty of sunlight for a long healthy life.
Windowsill Herbs: Save on grocery store bills by growing herbs on your windowsill. Decorate pots to make for a more attractive overall appearance. Then use these beauties to make flavorful dishes.
Add Some Life to Your Foyer: A foyer is another great place to grow your plants giving your home a welcoming appearance. Potted perennials can add some terrific colors and are a great, long lasting choice.
Window-Boxes Save Space: A window box is a great way to save on space. Being able to consolidate your plants will eliminate the clutter of having several pots. Make sure the plants in your window box stay healthy by selecting a variety of plants that require the same amount of sunlight and water.
Best Plant Choices
Now that we have some space saving options as far as situating our plants, let’s focus on the types of plants that might work best in our households.
Succulents: These plants are stylish, easy to care for and can work perfectly in a small space. Think of creative ways you can feature your succulents throughout your home.
Cacti: Cacti are members of the succulent family and can be featured in space saving clusters for an overall bohemian appearance. They look especially attractive in terra cotta pots and are small enough to fit just about anywhere.
Fiddle Leaf Fig Tree: A larger plant may take up space but can also provide an all over brightness to your house that may make it the only plant you’ll need. Position it between your furniture pieces to optimize space and add a much needed bold style statement in your home.
When it comes to larger plants, the Fiddle Leaf Fig Tree is a great option because it’s easy to care for. Simply position in indirect sunlight and water when the topsoil becomes dry.
If you are looking to brighten up your home, plants can really do the trick. These plants can offer low maintenance solutions while the positioning can save your house from appearing too cluttered. How will you be using this greenery to make your home a tropical haven?
