Not to brag or anything, but my husband and I bought our first house plants ever a few days ago (shout out to Planted http://plantedindenver.com). We thought since we’ve officially entered our 30s it was time to attempt to take care of some greenery. Not only is adding some natural beauty, well, beautiful in our home, but it turns out there are health benefits like their ability to purify the air and reduce stress. Talk about a win, win, win.
Because I’m currently plant crazy, I thought I’d share some insiders tips and some prettiness for those of you interested in taking a leap.
Insiders tip on buying plants:
- Before you go to the plant store, examine your space—where do you get light, how much, what areas do you think need some green—and bring that knowledge with you.
- Go to a real plant store.
- Talk to the plant guy or gal.
- Be honest in your hopes, dreams, fears, and lifestyle. AKA as newbies in the plant caring world, we still wanted the ability to go on vacation and not have our plants die on us.
And if real plants are still too scary, here you can add some green love with these DENY plant goodies.
