Bring in green (and clean air) with houseplants!

As we struggle to make it through this long winter and prepare for spring to come, bringing some plants into your home may be just what you need!


There are some great indoor plants that not only bring a little life into your space but also give you a little extra something to brighten up your day. Plants improve the air quality in your home by filtering things like dust, allergens, and toxins and release oxygen.

I don't know if this little lotus is easy to grow - but how gorgeous is that?


If you are the kind of person that struggle to keep plants alive , there are some great choices that need little attention! Some examples are the kentia palms, spider plant, myrsine, and bamboo. These plants make it carefree and easy to have plants indoors. The only plants I've managed to keep alive are spider plants and palmes.

Lovely indoor plant. Loving everything about this bright little sitting room

Smaller plants can add a little something to the room without being too distracting. If you are starting out with plants in your home, this may be the way to go so it's not too overwhelming!

Working from home just got a little more pleasant. Plants are said to reduce stress and create a calming work environment which can produce productivity! Having a dedicated space to work is amazing but having a place that is going to enhance your work day is a great plus!

The biggest issue in my home is not having the windowsill space for plants that need sun, so be sure to do a bit of research so you know what will work best in your environment.


If you have an empty space in your home your not sure how to fill, pulling in a plant could be a great way to complete the room! There are plenty of choices to choose from to fit your needs and very beneficial to a home.

Are you a fan of indoor plants? Any green thumbs out there?

I loved the little lotus plant...it was like art!

My daughter discovered an app that reminds her when her various plants need some water...how clever.
