Freshen Up Your Whittier Area Home With Houseplants!

by The Domis Team

Looking for an easy way to freshen up the decor in your Whittier Area home? Add some beautiful houseplants! Houseplants add interest to the interior design of your home with new textures, colors, and shapes. They have additional added benefits as well! They help your home's air quality, reduce sickness, increase focus, and much more! While it's up to you exactly what houseplants you want to add to your home, here are some helpful tips on how to choose them!

 

1. Determine where in the home you want to add the plants. Based on the decor needs and growing conditions (i.e. brightness of the location) of the spot, you will be better able to find a plant that matches those particular needs.

 

2. Another important factor to consider when picking out plants is how much care you want to put into it. Some plants require more constant attention than others. Foliage plants tend to need the easiest care and last throughout the year. Flowering plants are often more temperamental and seasonal. Along the same lines, decide whether you want to start the plant from a seed or care for one that has already bloomed initially. Growing a plant from a seed is an incredibly rewarding process but takes more time and care whereas maintaining a plant is often easier.

 

3. Find a reputable store to purchase your houseplants from them. The plants should look healthy in the store so you know that they have been properly cared for. This ensures that they will last once you bring them home.

 

4. Don't just look at the store, however. There are other places to purchase seeds and plants, especially of the rarer variety. Look at catalogs, garden magazines, and plant societies for unique options. Just make sure any place you order from has a money back guarantee since plants can easily get damaged in transit.

 

5. Do a thorough examination of the plant before buying. Make sure the stems and leaves are firm, the foliage is lush and colorful, and there is no waxy film on the plant. There should also be evidence of new growth.

 

6. Check the soil with your fingers. Repot the plants if the soil feels very loose or very compacted, in order to ensure proper growth of your plant.

 

7. Look for signs of insects or disease. Both of these will easily spread to other plants in your home so it is best to avoid them at all costs. The best areas to check are locations where the branches join the stem.
