I found this article while doing my daily peruse on Pinterest:
5 things that take a room from good to great. Listed at #2, are house plants (the right rug is #1). I’m always encouraging all my clients to hop on the plant wagon. "But I kill plants", you say.
Not to worry! For you of the black thumb varieties, I recommend the Sansevieria.
This is the heartiest houseplant I've ever found. It will grow in almost any condition and barely needs water. When you walk in the door after being away for three weeks, this plant will still be alive. Not only alive, it will be thriving. Low light or no light? No problem. This is as low maintenance a houseplant as you'll ever find. In fact, the Sansevieria could be the Dalai Lama of the plant world: peaceful, selfless, with very little material need or demand.
If you do alright with plants, in that they don't die on you and you remember to water when necessary, then the world is your oyster!...the greenhouse, your playground!...the forest, your field
remember- plants can take a room from good to great. they are not a fix-all for a poorly planned room.
let’s plan your next project together!
