How to Decorate Your Apartment with Plants
You have a brand new apartment and it's time to decorate! Decorating with plants is fun, easy and as a bonus - some plants purify the air!
Determine Your Style
Farmhouse? Mid-century modern? Eclectic? Figure out what you want the overall style of your apartment to be, and get plants to match! If you're going for a farmhouse feel, opt for herbs, Aloe and Spider plants. If you're feeling more of a mid-century modern look, shop for Fiddle Leaf Figs and Monsteras.
Start with Just a Few Plants from a Local Garden Center
After determining your style, do some research on some easy-to-care-for plants, and get just a few of them to start. Some of our easy-to-grow favorites are Snake Plants, Jade and Pothos. There are many sizes and colors of each of them, so pick the one that appeals most to you and they style you're after.
"I grow plants for many reasons: to please my eye or to please my soul, to challenge the elements or to challenge my patience, for novelty or for nostalgia, but mostly for the joy in seeing them grow." – David Hobson
Find the Perfect Pots & Planters
Most plants you buy from a local garden center will come in a nursery pot - a pot with drainage holes. For function and style, simply place the plant and nursery pot into a ceramic, metal or wood pot. You'll get the drainage your plant needs, along with the aesthetic you want.
Get an App to Help You Grow
There are dozens of plant care apps on the Google Play Store and the App Store. Our favorites are Planta, Florish and PictureThis. These apps will tell you how to care for your plants, sharing how much sunlight and water are needed and some apps even have diagnostics. With PictureThis, simply take a photo of your sick plant and it'll give you recommendations on how to nurse it back to health.
"Happiness is Watching Your Plants Grow"
Remember, being a house plant parent is supposed to be fun! Start with just a few plants, learn as you go, and before you know it, you'll be a pro!
