Houseplants can soothe us, physically and emotionally, and caring for a plant can lower blood pressure. Research shows that they can encourage healing, lessen pain, stress, and anxiety and also increase happiness.
This is all wonderful but if you are like most of us, and you can’t manage to keep a houseplant alive for longer than a week then here are some tips that will help.
The first lesson is that you actually have to interact with and care for plants. You need to find a decent space in your home where the light will reach it. You have to keep moving it around each season to make sure it is getting a good amount of light.
There is a plant out there for everyone but you really have to be consistent with the care you give to the plant. Some plans need space to thrive and the way most plants die is by overwatering. When you buy a plant, make sure to ask the florist what you need to do for that particular plant.
If your home isn’t blessed with natural light, you can buy a pothos plant or a Monstera deliciosa. If you don’t have what it takes to look after a high maintenance plant, find something that suits your needs and will look pretty in your home.
You can go the fake route and bring some green to your house that way. Plants and their pretty pots can bring you happiness, whether they are real or fake. If you want to decorate your home and give the place some color and nature then look in to buying a beautiful plant and learn to care for it. You will be grateful and happier once you have a thriving plant in your home.
