Comes in many varieties.
I am particularly partial to the
hanging variety, maybe for my mantle.
|Boston Fern: |
This is also listed on NASA's list
of plants that improve air quality.
I'm thinking this could go on a
stand in our bedroom upstairs.
|Spider Plant: |
I love the way the branches hang,
and new "babies" are born,
from which you can create more transplants.
There is a hook in my ceiling in the
living room that I could hang this from.
| Succulents: |
I am very attracted to these,
I will probably look for a pre-made
arrangement to start with.
This would be a nice touch to
the kitchen or bathrooms.
I haven't included some other common "easy" to care for plants, because either I've already killed them, or I wasn't partial to them for myself. And I most certainly am not going to consider the Lucky Bamboo plant, it would be extremely bad luck if I end up letting it die! Actually, when I look a these plants, I am reminded of my late Nana & Papa's house in Monterey, CA, and also my Grandmother's house in Alameda. They were both full of lovely houseplants, including some, if not all, of these plants I have chosen. My next step is to research which plants are best suited for the environment I live in, find a local nursery to see what they suggest, get some prices, and figure out where I will place my plant(s).
