Okay, you’re bored in the house.
Keeping in mind the current situation, stressed-out routines and/or the laziness, everyone is trying to take up an activity to add some hustle and colour back into their lives.
The go-to source for inspiration? Pinterest, Instagram or Facebook…
Fighting the urge to run outside daily can be nerve-wracking and exhausting both!
However, Graana.com has a solution to combat all these conditions, in addition to adding colour and freshness to not only lives but surroundings like homes, rooms, office or desk – indoor plants.
Before you take up this activity, an important set of rules that you have to remember.
Here is what you have to do:
- Come to terms with the fact that a little effort will have to be put into any kind of plant that is brought home.
- Plant your new green friend into a pot to minimise a mess.
- Water your plant only as needed.
This really isn’t that much! If you can uptake the responsibility of these three things, let’s move forward to explore a list of the house plants that take very little effort, and are easiest to master.
Swiss Cheese Plant
Also known as Monstera Deliciosa, you may have noticed these beginner-friendly plant’s leaves graphics on everything from throw pillows to wallpaper on various social media sites. Filling out greater spaces, to care for this plant, watering it once a week is sufficient. They require medium to bright indirect light to grow, which makes the job a lot easier to grow the Swiss-Cheese plant.
Want to ditch the boring look and want to do something fancier like design you room into a starry surrounding?
Try stacking the pot or two in a corner of the room, on the side of a chair or floor cushions and place coloured vases, bottles (any reflective surface) to amp up space and make it look like a personal take of an art installation.
Philodendron Green Plant
One of the easiest plants to grow is the philodendrons. With the heart-shaped leaves of the plant
trailing over 10 feet long, use this plant to unlock and achieve a vineyard look for space.
This Indoor plant can thrive at lower temperatures and can survive at lower light levels. Although philodendrons can survive in dark places, they much prefer bright lights.
By placing the planter pots on high shelves and the leaves trailing downwards can help achieve a wilderness effect indoors, by utilizing the vertical space. This plant can be hung along the staircase or the roof of either the dining room or family room.
Just like their alternate name, ‘mother-in-law’s tongue’ – these plants are hard to kill.
Needing little watering once a week and surviving on indirect or bright sunlight, this plant also acts as an air purifier and combats the foreign material present in the air inside your home.
If you’re a beginner, it’s a low-maintenance plant that can survive tough conditions and purifies the air from hard chemicals, which makes it perfect for you newbies adopting this in the current situation.
This plant can either be paired with other indoor plants or if you want to redecorate, incorporate a planter or two of a grown snake plant set against a colourful wall in the living room for a minimalistic look. If you want to add colour to your bedroom or work table, get your hands on a small-sized planter and decorate or the table or a shelf, with aromatic candles and kiss your stress goodbye.
A healer more than a plant, the Aloe plant can be found almost in every household. Having anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial properties, one can use this plant to brighten up your home, but you can also use it to heal wounds and different skin conditions.
The plant prefers the soil getting really dry before watering, one can always reap the air-purification benefits this plant offers as it also removes hard particles from the air.
The plant pot can be placed anywhere, making it more accessible for daily use.
Almost impossible to kill and wonderful for adding green to your desk or revamping little spaces, of course, the succulent is the wisest choice. These indoor plants come in an endless variety of shapes, colours and species. While scrolling through Instagram or if you’re surfing through Pinterest, you may find them almost anywhere and everywhere. We can bet that you may find a kind or two in your gardens.
