FILL YOUR HOME WITH PLANTS

fill your Empty spaces with green! 

Houseplants are more than just peices of decor – as more plants are added to a space, more air is forced to circulate through the leaves, and we are left with even fresher air than we had before. Cleaner air makes us happier, creative, and more productive! Sometimes a plant-perfect spot is obvious and we know exactly what we want to fill it with. At the same time, maybe you know you want a plant but you just don't know what will work, and where. We want you to feel confident in all of your plant decisons, so let's look at a few different apartment spaces and talk about what would work! 

The "kinda-Dark-kinda-not" Spots

Hallways are the kind of in-between spaces that can be really weird to figure out. Let's take a look at the image above, notice how most of the light is coming from the ceiling lights? That's not going to help any plants grow. At the same time, it does look like there's a natural source of light coming in from windows in the other room, just out of frame. Nine times out of ten, if a hallway has natural light, it's almost always secondhand light from another place in the house, not direct sunlight. This kind of indirect, low to medium light is fantastic for a few beautiful floor plants:

Snake plants are the champions of the "what the heck do I put here" plant category. They thrive in low light, don't need too much humidity, and can withstand areas with high foot traffic. Thanks to their succulent abilities to store water, these plants only need to be watered once every 3-4 weeks. From the soft grey Sayuri, to the cool tones and stripes on the Zeylanica, to the classic green and yellow Trifasciata, these snakes are the best hallway plants!

Extra Large Money Tree

$130.00

The Money trees are great at tolerating dark shady corners in your house, so if you're not sure what type of lighting your space gets, you cannot go wrong with a money tree. It even has "money" in the name! Make of that what you will but the Money trees are thought to bring good "fengshui" to a space. What most people also love about the Money tree is the fact that they have thick braided stalks and very dense foliage grow!

Extra Large Lisa Cane

$230.00

 With dramatically long and floppy deep green leaves and a bright green bamboo-esque stalk, the Lisa Cane is the true low-maintenance plant Queen! This cane thrives in low humidity and the low to medium indirect light you'd get in a hallway! Lisa Canes are phenomenal air purifiers: the stacked nature of the folaige filters air through multiple leaves at a time. The cane is thin enough to fit in a corner or next to a small table, but the lush foliage grows in such a way that this plant will always make an impact!

The "Woah-that's-bright!" room

This is the perfect human room for us humans: The amount of natural light eliminates the need for any extra lamps or lighting fixures, and you can just feel the energy from the sun pouring into your apartment. It's great for us, but not many plants will thrive in such a bright environment without a little diffusion. Adding a translucent curtain to the window will help break up the light, or you can go the natural route with.... other plants! Here are some plants that looooove some nice bright sun!

Large Prickly Pear Cactus

$110.00

Surprising no one, the Prickly Pear cactus loves the bright full sun. This flat, slow-growing cactus is native to the rocky areas of America. The rounded, deep green leaves grow in a tight clump, bringing quick moments of life to their desert surroundings. Prickly Pears are not toxic in moderation. So a few munches from a curious pet or little one won't be awful so long as it's not a full meal! The Prickly Pear thrives in moderate humidity, dry soil, and bright light.

Extra Large Bird Of Paradise

$95.00

Need a plant that handles direct light and is not a boring stick with pricks? Look no further than the Bird Of Paradise! The Bird Of Paradise has big lush leaves that will constantly remind you of the islands, so you won't even need to go on vacations anymore! Bird Of Paradises are also pretty easy to take care of, but you'll need to get used to their leaf-splitting habits, it's natural, it happens, and it does freak some people out. We think it adds to the tropical feel of the plant, but everyone has their own preferences.

Simple yet interesting- take that Bird Of Paradise! The Peruvian cactus is perfect for a direct bright light spot that can use a simple plant. Sometimes less is more! The peruvian cactus is very easy to care for as is any other cactus, all you'll watch out for is the watering. And you can let this plant dry out like you forgot to pay the water bills. What's interesting about the Peruvian Cactus is the fact that, when given enough light and time, the plant will push out apple like fruits that are *supposed to be edible.

Planting for pets

For those of us who are both pet and plant parents, it can be tough to find plants that are safe for pets and fit your home decor. While some pets don't care about our plants, but most of our fur babies are very curious and will take a bite out of our greenery at least once. Ficus plants, most cacti, even Scheffleras are all amazing statement pieces, but most are toxic to our animals. Luckily, there are plenty of non-toxic plants that are safe for the occasional munch or crunch.

The vibrant, lush foliage grows in compact bushy clumps, which force air through multiple layers of leaves, making the Cat Palm an excellent air purifier!

Large Cast Iron Plant

$110.00

The direct competitor of a Money tree is the Cast Iron plant because the cast iron plants are also easy care, low light tolerant and pet safe. But compared to a money tree, the Cast Irons are actually a little more tolerant of extreme environments. So if you want something bushy that's easy care and low light tolerant that also is safe for pets, get the Cast Irons.
