So it's no secret I love plants. Inside, outside, and all year. I have plants in almost every room in my house
and they just lift my mood! I can also tell a difference in the air- it smells clean and fresh. Benefits of *real* house plants include clean air, a beautiful pop of greenery (perfect for my neutral loving heart, I'm kind of afraid of colors in home decor haha), helps keep air temps down in warmer months, and they reduce airborne dust levels which can help with allergies. It's basically like having cheap solar powered air purifiers. 

Tips for all plants: 
Plants require a little love and the correct amounts of light and water. That's it! Water less in the winter months- this is when plants are a bit dormant and require less naturally. 
Keep plants pruned to keep them healthy and green. If you see a dead leaf or vine, just cut it off. This will prevent them from wasting their energy trying to 'fix' the dead parts. 

Pothos
These beautiful vine plants do well with low light and bright indirect light, making them perfect for almost any room. They look great in a plant hanger or sitting on a shelf. They can also grow up things, so they can add some versatility to all types of rooms. Pothos can be planted in soil or rooted in a vase of water- just cut off a healthy vine, place in water and light, and watch it grow in just a few short weeks. One of these plants can eventually give you endless plant babies :) I've had two but have like 8 plants from those two plants so far. Water these 1-2 times a week. Tip: If their leaves become yellow and spotty, they are getting too much light. 

Snake Plant
This one is the easiest of all! These dark green beauties can grow up to three feet tall and can survive low light levels and with very little water- even drought like conditions. So if this plant dies in your care, I don't suggest getting a pet. haha, jk! But they really are easy peasy! I water mine once a week, every other week during cold months. 

Majesty Palm
These do best near a window- I have mine right beside a large window in my office. They require more water than the other two, the key is to not let the soil dry out but also to not over water :)

Plant kindness and gather love
