Plants make such a major impact on your space. Not only do they add a beautiful natural touch to any design they bring real life into your home. For years I designed with faux plants purely because I couldn’t keep an indoor plant alive for the life of me. Lucky for me Emilie, our Creative Director over here at C+A, is a plant lady and has provided us with some solid advice and insight for indoor plants. We are excited to break these down room by room starting with the heart of any home, your kitchen. So without further adieu we present to you kitchen plants even you won’t kill!
When it comes to growing plants inside your home starting small is key. You don’t create a jungle right off the bat. One plant in each category is the perfect way to learn. You can learn about each type of plant and grow from there!
Turns out all plants need light you guys. They cannot grow without it. What varies from plant to plant is the amount of light in which it needs to survive. It’s really important for you to observe natural light in the space you are going to keep your plants in, and from there you can select plants that will thrive in your home.
You’ve probably already guessed it but it is true that all plants need water to survive too! Same rings true here as with light. The amount of water a plant needs is all based on the type of plant, room environment and how the plant intakes its water. Some things to consider: Do you live in a humid home or dry home? Is your plant placed near a heat vent?
When it comes to placing your plants around your house you really can’t go wrong. Plants can move around. Floor plants typically stay on the floor as they are large and heavy. While hanging plants and counter plants can also work on shelving.
