Plant Herbs

Plant herbs that can sit in your kitchen or by a windowsill. They take up very little space and give you the benefit of harvesting what you sow. Sage, thyme, basil, rosemary, and lemongrass, and many others will grow well indoors. One writer says that all herbs can live indoors as long as you take into account the hardiness of the plant, the time of the year you plant them, the air temperature, and the type of soil they live in. Take these into account and you’ll have thriving and fresh herbs all year.

House Plants

Beside planting herbs, buy plants that are good for living indoors. Some plants that work well include spider plants, aloe vera, snake plants, dracaenas, palms, philodendrons, and succulents. Many plants are also great for purifying your home. Some of these include peace lilies, rubber plants, bamboo palms, snake plants, and dumb canes. Choose the right plant for you and your home. For example, if your apartment doesn’t get a lot of sunlight, choose a plant that’s okay with that. If you aren’t home a lot, find one that’s okay with little watering.

Hanging Planters

This macrame hanging planter idea is a perfect way to creatively add greenery to your place. You can easily hang these pots from your window sill to avoid using up counter or table space. Not to mention, they’re beautiful! For this project, you’ll need chalked paint, a paint brush, string, and a terracotta pot (or two or three!). After painting the pot, you can use the photo tutorial to see how to twist and tie the string onto the pots.

You can find some of these plants at your favorite nursery, farmers market, or supermarket here in San Antonio, TX. What houseplants do you have? What are your tips on keeping them alive and happy? Let us know in the comments. Thanks for reading!
