I was your typical houseplant killer (RIP poor cactus…) but when we moved into our first house, I knew I needed some greenery and was determined to change my plant killing ways. There’s just something so quietly joyful about having houseplants in the home. They give off such happy vibes. I’ve been tending to them daily for months now and although some are faring better than others, I’m happy to report there have been no casualties! Knock on wood…
I snagged this antique brass bar cart from a used furniture dealer and it sits with some of my smaller specimens in the dining room. It’s got a ton of wear and tear, but it makes a really beautiful and unique plant stand. I just love it!
The main thing I’m always looking for in a houseplant is easy maintenance. My English ivy and snake plant do fine in low light and want for very little. I just make sure to spritz the leaves of the ivy to keep mites at bay.
I am definitely looking to grow my collection over time. If you have any suggestions for low maintenance indoor houseplants, please let me know!
