My New Love Of Houseplants

my new love of houseplants

Since we moved into our new apartment, I have been looking for lovely things to make it beautiful and since I am a big fan of blogger Burkatron, I often read her blog posts on house plants and DIY plant pots.

So this week I decided to take the plunge and buy a couple of plants, I went for foliage plants rather than flowering plants due to the fact I need something easy to look after (not very good with plants I must be honest). All you need to do with these ones are water them so the soil is moist once a week or when the soil is dry and feed them with plant food once a month - surely I can't go wrong right? The two I brought were a Venus fly trap and a spider plant.
There are plus sides to having plants in your house not only do they absorb carbon dioxide but they release oxygen, this makes plants and humans the perfect partners. Plants release roughly 97 percent of the water they take in, place several plants together and you can see respiratory problems decrease as they increase humidity. They also remove toxins from the air.

I love my new plants and I will certainly be picking some more up at some point
