Do you have a green thumb? Don’t worry, I don’t either, but I love decorating with plants anyway. If you love nature it is a great way to bring the outdoors inside. Also, most plants are inexpensive, so they are perfect for decorating your home on a budget. Plants are also a great way to make a space come alive and freshen it up. Now, let’s take a little tour of all the plants I currently have in my home.
In my sitting area I have this pothos plant. It is probably the easiest plant to care for (in my humble opinion). You can forget to water it and it will be ok for a period of time. From what I can tell, they do love sunlight and grow very fast. The best part about this plant is you can take cuttings from the plant and root them in water. This is a great way to take one plant and create several others which is very budget friendly!
There are two plants sitting on the table in my foyer. The bigger plant is real and was bought on Amazon and the smaller plant is a faux plant and came from Michael’s. I was a little skeptical of buying a plant from Amazon and didn’t know how well it would do, but it has grown so much and looks great! If you have ever been skeptical of buying a plant online, give it a try. This one is so pretty and easy to care for.
This plant is the newest addition to the family and it is also my favorite. I have it sitting right next to my beach art because it is tropical and reminds me of warm and sunny weather. This plant is from Walmart and was very inexpensive. So far, it has done great and I love pot it came in also.
One of my other favorite plants is the Christmas cactus which is on the left. It blooms every year at Christmas and is beautiful! The other succulent that you see on the right is small and easy to take care of. I water it sparingly and also use some succulent food once a week and it has done really well.
I’m not sure what I like better in the above photo, the faux plant or the cute bicycle planter that it is sitting in. If you are looking to add some green to a space that doesn’t get a lot of light, then use a faux plant. And, in case you are wonder, the cute bicycle planter is from Target. You’re welcome!
And last, but certainly not least, is the faux fern that sits in the great room. Real ferns can be hard to keep alive, so I caved and bought this one from Target. I do love it and it is a great alternative to the real thing. I hope you enjoyed this tour of all of the plants in our home. Decorating with plants is an inexpensive and great way to decorate your home! Hop on over to Facebook or Instagram and let me know your favorite plant!
