3 Easy Ways To Get More Greenery Into Your Life

  • Share

Not only can houseplants improve your home's air quality, they instantly brighten up your home and add life to just about any space.

To help you bring a little more greenery into your life, we gathered three of our favorite indoor plants for your home, along with tips on how to care for them. If you’re not quite ready to commit to a new living roomie yet, no worries. We also rounded up three equally verdant paint colors to help you bring some greenery into your home—no green thumb necessary.

1. Schefflera

A petite evergreen shrub that doubles as a natural air freshener (by releasing oxygen and absorbing airborne pollutants), Schefflera plants have shiny, variegated leaves that make them great for décor — especially if your style skews more bohemian.

These hardy plants grow well in small, semi-shaded spaces; so keep them in a bright room but out of direct sunlight, and water twice a week for optimal growth.

2. Dried foliage

Believe it or not, dried out plant leaves can make for a surprisingly stylish floral display—no watering required! Popular arrangements include everything from dried eucalyptus branches to citrus leaves, so simply grab a pretty vase and your favorite foliage to forge an unexpectedly sleek bouquet that's a great compliment to more traditional rooms.

3. Philodendron

Beloved by green- and not-so-greenthumbs alike, philodendron (aka heart leaf plants) is widely considered un-killable. And, its multi-colored leaves are versatile enough to fit with any décor style, particularly clean and modern spaces.

Place one in a partially shaded area, away from direct sunlight, and water once a week. Just be sure to pick a room with high ceilings, because these popular houseplants can grow up to ten feet tall when properly cared for.
