Plants are a great idea to have in your home! They are beautiful, add color, character, and truly contribute to the domicile by purifying the air and most importantly: creating oxygen! How COOL is that?? If the only thing stopping you from getting one of these green babies into your space is that you let that succulent die four years ago and gave up plants for good, try these! With a little plant knowledge, you’ll be equipped to care for and grow these to your wildest dream! We’re rooting for you, because, well, life succs without plants.
These thrive in bright, indirect light and well draining soil. Be careful not to overwater these friends, or they will get too soggy and die from root rot.
Placing this plant in indirect light, allowing the soil to dry between waterings, and being careful not to overwater in the colder months are the only things you need to do to keep this friend alive!

They also need different soil. Be sure to use a cactus soil or mix regular soil with pumice, perlite, or sand.
This plant will GROW and get leggy! This is best known as one of those cool hanging plants you’ve most likely seen. They thrive indoors with bright indirect light, well draining soil, and like to dry out between waterings.
Other tips to consider

-Always try to wipe off the dust from your plants gently with a soft damp cloth, or a clean damp pant brush for those hard to reach spots.

“Bloom where you are planted” is one of my life’s mottos. I’m currently blooming in Northern Utah. Experienced mover and expert packer, I have lived in several states but hold California and the East Coast the closest in my giant ol’ heart. There you will also find quintessential old soul vibes and a deep love of books. As a child, I was usually found passed out with a book in close proximity (not much has changed). Today you will also find a cat in my general vicinity, coffee in one hand, and cross stitch in the other.
