I love houseplants and believe that they are very important to have in your home and office.
Plants are great for making a space not only feel inviting but they also improve your air quality.
People often tell me that I have a “green thumb” and I’m always very tickled. Let me be the first to say that I do have a bit of color on my thumb but it sure isn’t green.
Over the years and going through trial and error, I’ve learned how to select houseplants that are hard to kill.
In this blog post I’m going to share with you three houseplants that will have everyone saying that you have a “green thumb” too.
Don’t keep this a secret, share it with your friends so that they’ll receive the “you have a green thumb” compliments too… LOL.
I’ve added a little Feng Shui lesson in as well. I hope you enjoy.
Golden pothos (Epipremnum aureum): This beauty has leaves splashed with yellow, the vines on this easy-to-grow plant can easily exceed 20 feet. This plant grows well in a bright but sunless spot, as the leaves will fade when grown in poor light conditions. Feng Shui practitioners love this plant because its great for removing toxins from the air.
Mother-in-laws Tongue (Sansevieria): This is a very hardy plant that will last years indoors in a low light area. According to feng shui, because the leaves of Sansevieria grow upwards, the plants can be used for feng shui purposes. Some feng shui practicers believe that having Sansevieria near children helps reduce coarseness, although care must be taken to ensure the child cannot reach the plants poisonous leaves. Others recommend placing pots near the toilet tank to counter the drain-down vibrations.
Spider plant (Chlorophytum comosum): A timelessly popular plant, due in part to its adaptability, fast growth and abundance of dangling tiny plantlets. It does its best when in bright but indirect light and evenly moist soil during the growing season. In feng shui this plant creates a relaxed environment. It is said to have remarkable abilities for removing indoor air pollutants.
