Why Should You Buy Houseplants?
House plants are a great choice for interior decoration, both for utility and aesthetics.
On the utility side, house plants are beneficial for your home’s internal conditions. One of the primary benefits of having houseplants in your home is that they produce clean air by taking in carbon dioxide to produce oxygen. Some plants, like spider plants, even help eliminate indoor odors.
Aesthetically, house plants add a bit of greenery to your interior design, giving a sense of calm to your home. Peaceful and elegant, houseplants are universally appreciated and come in a wide range to suit any taste. Choose a hanging ivy for some overhead charm or a colorful flower for a centerpiece — you have plenty of options.
How Can You Find the Right House plants for Your Home?
Choosing a houseplant for your home does take a little bit of planning. If you have any pets, make sure the house plant you choose isn’t poisonous to them. You might also consider how often you’ll be home to water your plant — some plants require much more care and attention than others.
You may also need to consider the size of your plant. For example, though the idea of having an indoor fruit tree may be attractive, not everyone has the room or light required to keep one.
Once you have a good sense of what type of plant is right for you, the next priority is to find one that suits your aesthetic preferences. Are you looking for a colorful focal point for your room or something more discreet to place on a windowsill? You might also consider how the color of the plant will interact with the rest of your interior decorations.
How Do You Care for Your Houseplants?
Caring for your houseplant requires considering its specific needs, which are usually detailed on an instruction card that comes with your plant. Since the word “houseplant” covers such a huge variety of different plants, care instructions will tend to vary from plant to plant. Make sure that your plant is placed in a location with plenty of light and warmth. If you have any questions about how to care for your houseplant, talk to one of the nursery experts at Garden Goods Direct today!
In general, houseplants will come ready to put in a pot of your choosing using potting soil. Be sure to give your plant room to grow, and water it regularly after potting to give it a good start. However, be sure not to overwater your plant — one of the leading causes of houseplant death is overwatering, as this causes a plant’s roots to rot. Regularly clean your plants to get rid of any built-up dust, and groom them to avoid branch crowding.
It’s also a good idea to check your plant for signs of insect infestations and diseases since these can kill a houseplant quickly if left unchecked.
