If you’re like me and were afraid to bring anything live home for the fear of watching it die a slow and painful death, then let’s talk for a sec.
First, it’s time go get past the fear. Repeat after me: I CAN take care of plants. I can set a reminder to water a plant when needed. I can read the plant’s directions and put it a place in my home where it can be happy.
That’s it – That is the key to caring for a plant!
Now, embrace all of the wonderfulness that your plant will provide. Things like better air quality and a sunnier disposition. Yes – plants help us feel good! Except when we kill them, that makes us sad. But don’t even think about that, because we’re going to make sure that doesn’t happen.
The two most important things you need to keep your plant happy are the right amount of light and the right amount of water. You can find the best plants to grow indoors for any room in your home, as long as you match up the right plant to the right space.
