Care tips

  • Low humidity.
  • Low-moderate light.

Air plant

Care tips
  • Temperature over 45F degrees.
  • Keep in partial shade.
  • Watering: Soak the base of the plant in water once every 1-2 weeks, for 2-3 hours, and then let it drain the remaining water overnight.
  • Mist at the base every few days to keep it moist.

The easiest plant to have is no doubt an air plant. No soil is needed to keep this plant thriving. All it needs is air circulation.

Herbs

Growing herbs from the comfort of your own home provides you with access to healthy ingredients, plus planting the herbs and watching them grow is a fun family activity! Deciding which herbs to grow can be daunting, however an easy solution to this is by using Seedsheets! Seedsheets turns you into a Gardening Guru by providing you with nonGMO seeds and an up-cycled gardening container. 

Care tips

  • To plant: place the Seedsheet on top of a container full to the brim with soil.
  • Water: follow the instructions on your Seedsheet package for watering frequencies.
  • Once watered: the seed pods dissolve, the plants sprout through the weed blocking fabric, and the result is a perfectly-spaced organic weedless garden! 

General Plant Tips:

  • Adjust your watering with the seasons, and account for heaters and air conditioners.
  • Have a designated TLC plant care-day!: Take your indoor plants outside, wipe their leaves with a damp cloth, and water them.
  • Make sure the soil you use has the ability to drain water well, if not, add some sand to the soil.
  • Try to have pots with drainage holes at the bottom to prevent root rotting from water.

    I love growing my own herbs and having them available to create meals for my family. Not to mention, it makes the house smell very aromatic!

    My favorite plants are fresh herbs! I'd love nothing more than to grow my own to use in my cooking/culinary creations!

    I love those big plants for indoor, but i've been one a succulent kick lately! I'd love to get some air plants for my office desk though - they're so unique (and hard to kill!)

    Currently succulents are my favorite. I don't exactly have a green thumb, so the fact that I can keep them alive is amazing.

    My favorite plants are the ones that are hard to kill, if I can keep them alive then they become my favorite :)

    I love indoor plants. I love how they make the house feel earthy. Plus they help clear the air in the house. My favorite plant is Bromelaid Plant
