THE NEW KIDS GUIDE TO INDOOR PLANTS

April 25, 2016

Go ahead, track some dirt inside. Indoor foliage, including crazy-cool plant walls, can purify air, reduce anxiety, and hike up happiness. Follow these three uber-smart pointers to decorate your home with green things (and reap the benefits)!

Start Small
Newbies should first practice just keeping a houseplant or two alive for a few months,see our informative blogs for some 411.  Try hardy, water-once-a-week varieties such as philodendrons, snake plants, or ZZ plants.

Get Vertical
Graduate to a plant (or “living”) wall. These vertical gardens can double as artsy conversation pieces and aren’t that tough to set up.  Pot your flora in planters, then mount them—one on top of the other, in a row, however you like!—on a wall directly opposite or close to a window. Or give us a call and let us do all the hard work for you.

Add Oomph
For an even bigger setup, large wall-pocket frames can hold dozens of plants in individual cells, the overall  effect makes it appear as if an entire garden is growing directly out of a wall. Fill the various plant cells with different types of vegetation or edible herbs ( by the way, we have a blog on that too). Or create a mini forest out of ferns or succulents( blog goin’ on here too). Research from NASA suggests that indoor plants remove significant amounts of harmful contaminants from the air ( oh yeah… yet another shameless blog plug). www.insideplants.net
