I’ve been giving my plants a little – love and attention this morning, ours only need a quick few drops of water as they’re a hardy bunch. I always choose drought tolerant plants to decorate my home because there is much – less chance of me accidentally killing them. I figure this is best because when a plant doesn’t quite make it, I actually feel kind of bad and a tad guilty… guilty, like Iv’e been a really naughty owner / plant – mummy.
I also like to go on holidays every now and then and it’s nice to know my tough – nut plants will happily work with me on that one!
I have personally found plants like succulents, palms, ivy, zee – zee plant, air and ponytail plants to be the easiest to look after… Some of these you can practically neglect, which I love!
Zee Zee plants, also named Zamioculcas zamiifolia are particularly amazing because during summer they like to be watered once a month and in winter, once every two months. They don’t like too much sun or light but are a really cute looking plant. Drought resistant plants require so little output from us, for so, so much beauty in return!
Plants add oodles of soul to our homes because they’re living, growing evolving beings compared to empty – vessels or decor items which eventually date or we grow tired of. They’re also a fantastic diversion away from imperfections by creating “amplified wow factor” within our spaces. The bedroom pictured above looks gorgeous; those green plants are absolutely the stars of the show and they make that bed look like a really – cosy place to be!
The rich – green tones of plants also create a real sense of calm for us at home, we feel peaceful around them and they could therefore be described as mood – enhancing – shrubs of the non illegal kind. How about you? What plants do have at your home? Do you have a fave plant or recommendation? And I wonder, do you think that your indoor – plants contribute to making you happier at home?
