It’s been a year since I made a concerted effort to add plants to our home. I don’t have much of a green thumb and our house doesn’t have a lot of natural light, so I tried to find plants that would work well with those two conditions. Last year, I talked about which plants I chose and where I placed them so I thought I’d follow up with how they are doing.
And the fern I thought would do well in low light lost all of it’s leaves. I put it outside in hopes of reviving it.
I am happy to report that the snake plants, pothos, and the ZZ plant are doing great! I think these are my favorite because they don’t require much and seem to forgive imperfect conditions.
And the rubber plant that I thought would be finicky (since it started losing leaves when I put it in the dining room) is also surviving! I water that one by pouring water into the little plastic container the plant sits in (instead of on top of the open soil) and letting the roots soak it up.
The burro tail, a succulent, while not thriving, is hanging in there too. Maybe it’s because I put it outside for the summer months and brought it in for winter. This plant is just so cute, but very fragile. I even split it up into different pots.
The dracaena plant has brown leaves but I don’t think all is lost. I’ve just recently put it back outside so it can get more light.
I water the indoor plants once a week but the outdoor plants definitely need watering every few days. I had a container herb garden last year and hope to have another this summer. I better get started soon!
Are you good with plants? Any tips or suggestions?
