The House Plant Guide

Owning a minimalist doesn't mean that it can't be pretty and full of life! I adore plants, and I'm working on adding a few indoor plants to my home. I have been searching for a few hours to find the best indoor plants.. I have a tendency to kill them, so I wanted to get a few plants that would work great for me and for my home. I came with a small list of ideal plants for me:

The Rubber tree // I have seen this one around and I immediately fell in love with it, without even know that it would be the perfect plant for me! It doesn't need a lot of direct sun light, low maintenance and low water intake.

The Succulent // This little fellow is perfect or the bathrooms, it comes in so many beautiful varieties that I almost want to create a succulent garden on my balcony! They require little water and although you may think they need a lot of light, they actually adapt very nicely to a place with no sunlight.

The Split Leaf // This house plant is so gorgeous! They are so easy to take care and they look amazing in he house. They need medium to bright light, but no direct sun. If you keep the soil a little damp, you are good to go.

Bamboo Palm // I think these may be the most common, and a big full one would look amazing on my living room! They need bright indirect light and be sure not to overwater it and that your pot is big enough for it.

    1. I don't do well with plants either. That's why I have been trying to look for plants that require low maintenance =)
      These are the ones that i found out to be great for "plant Killers" like me and that will look great at home !

  5. Eu também me enquadro nesse grupo de pessoas que deixam as plantas morrer =/ Saber que, afinal, não sou a única deixa-me com menos sentimentos de culpa. Para evitar isso, neste momento, tenho em casa Bambu e Cactos. Adorei as tuas sugestões, acho as Suculentas também lindíssimas. =)
