I’m not sure what’s going on over here, you guys. The plants are beginning to mutiny! I have a lot of plants, and I feel like I work pretty hard to be nice to them. I know all of their names, what they’re into, their favorite colors, really…I’ve done my homework! But alas, five of them have bit the dust since Christmas and now my collection is looking rather depleted.
Taking care of plants is something I really enjoy. My garden is just about my favorite place in the universe, but this time of year, I’m limited to what’s inside. I think tons of house plants is both the easiest and cheapest way to bring some life into your home. I’ve got it narrowed down to a few contenders that can withstand our mediocre city row house lack of light. So what do you say, will you help me choose some new lovelies?
So which one’s your favorite? Some of these I haven’t tried, and some others currently live with me and have survived the plant peer pressure to bite the dust. I’m realizing now that I think I’ve seen all of these plants for sale at IKEA. If you’re also struggling to keep your plants alive, maybe you should head there…they seem to have the hearty plant industry pretty well figured out. I bought a money tree when I was there this week, and plan to stop in my favorite neighborhood plant shop over the weekend to snap a philodendron. Wish me luck (apparently I need it), and have a lovely weekend!
