We want to bring life into our homes, but many of us without green thumbs have found our plants quickly turning brown. So Lucrecer Braxton (aka @soulsistaplants) is here to share her five favorite plants, and how to take care of them.
First, pay attention to the lighting conditions in your house; then, decide how often you want to have to take care of the plant itself. And remember, only bring home a plant you love!
Heart Leaf Philodendron
Looks great in a hanging pot or on a shelf where the leaves can trail.Place in bright indirect light.Water every 7-10 days.
Sansevieria Snake Plant
Great as a gift!Water every 3 weeks in growing season, once a month in the winter.You can set it and forget it, but don’t totally forget it.
Comes in all different varieties.Water every 3-4 weeks, or when you notice the leaves drooping.Let it dry out, then give it a nice soak.Thrives in lower light (not no light).
Water every 3-4 weeks.Can grow in low light or bright indirect light.Looks very masculine in a black pot.
Prayer Plant (Maranta)
Closes up at night as if it’s praying.Water every 10-14 days.Place in bright indirect light.Don’t let direct light hit the leaves.
