House plants to add a positive vibe

positive vibe

Plants are temperamental; they all react and respond differently to climate, space, size of the pot, type of pot, light, fertilizer and watering process. Don’t be terrified, a simple rule of thumb to follow is that when the soil feels dry to touch 1.5 inches into the pot then your plant is thirsty. Plastic or terracotta pots with good drainage are the best kind of posts for your plants. While ceramic pots look lovely they don’t do much for the health of your plant. Because they have a restricted amount of breathing space in them. Here are some house greens to add a positive vibe to your home.

Snake Plant

ZZ Plant

Boston Fern
