Most people think that furniture, appliances, and accessories are all it takes to decorate a home. While that really takes the bulk of decorating, there are other affordable ways and means to really brighten up a space. The simplest things that can, definitely, bring beauty and spark to a room are plants or floral arrangements.
I know, you’re probably telling yourself, “But taking care of plants is hard.” Let’s face it, not a lot of people are gifted with a green thumb. Also, not a lot of people actually enjoy watering the plants. But that really doesn’t have to be the case.
There are a lot of indoor plants that you can use to bring nature into the home. These plants don’t really need a lot of sunlight. They will survive inside the house far longer than outdoor plants. The top 10 Best Indoor Plants are the following:
- Angel Ivy Ring Topiary
- Braided Ficus Tree
- Cactus Combo Bonsai
- Chamaedorea Palm
- Chinese Evergreen
- Miniature Herb Standard Topiaries
- Moth Orchid Novelty Stripes
- Ponytail Palm
- Tropical Combo Bonsai
- Amaryllis (Yellow Goddess)
Needless to say, all the listed indoor plants entail very little maintenance. They bring in the fresh feeling of relaxation and wellness. Also, the said plants are great start off points in case you want to develop your green thumb.
Nothing can beat the feeling of seeing green inside the home. Unknowingly, it just makes you feel so good. You can pretty much consider topiaries and bonsais earth-friendly art pieces. Undeniably, they are such creative pieces that can always spark a good conversation. But most importantly, they just really liven up the space without emptying your pockets.
For those who loathe watering plants on a daily basis, consider putting cacti inside your house. There are a number of varieties out there that can surely brighten up your room. This is the best plant to have indoors when you just don’t have enough time in your hands, much less time to water a plant inside the house. Cacti are usually found in arid regions and are thus tougher than most plants.
Of course, you can always do without some green in the house. It totally eliminates the need to routinely check the plants every now and then. But before you totally dismiss the idea, try it first and see how it goes. Considering the low maintenance of the recommended indoor plants and affordability, it’s really worth the try. You’ll never know, you just might find yourself considering a real garden next.
