|Every home needs some living plants!|
Plants breathe life into a room. I’m pretty sure most of us already know that greenery adds style to any décor. Their natural good looks add believability and freshness to a room.
|You say you have a brown thumb? Not a problem |
if you stage with a snake plant like this.
The beauty of these plants is that, well, they are beautiful, with their strong upright structure and bands of dark greens.
|Whatever your personal taste or decor style, you'll find a fern variety that fits the bill.|
|My aglaonema plant grows slowly and never gets bugs or diseases. Perfect!|
This ability to live without much attention makes the Chinese evergreen plant a good one to place in an unoccupied, staged home.
Don't Sneer at Philodendron
We've all seen these rangy plants in stores and offices, with their heart-shaped leaves spaced along dangling stems. However, a philodendron that is well cared for is compact and handsome. Its glossy leaves and tolerant manner make it one of the most common indoor plants, one that is currently enjoying a return to popularity.
|Philodendron plants are at home in almost any setting and unlike some|
houseplants, don't mind if you move them from one place to another.
There are many varieties of philodendron. Some fruit or flower. Some vine and need a support and some are content to stay in their pot. Some have huge leaves and others appear less jungle-like. They all prefer medium light but will tolerate low light. You can't go wrong with a philodendron!
|Big or small, alone or in groupings, prickly or |
smooth, cactus plants love you back.
The easiest to tend -- if you can call it that -- are the dessert cacti. An added bonus to these varieties is that they usually have interesting shapes and textures. They especially look good clustered in an interesting planter. Even in winter, while all cacti are dormant and require even less water and feeding, they still add some pizazz to the home staging environment.
