Cool plants to grow indoors. I love these easy plants to grow that are making an impression on this mantel. Wondering how to arrange indoor plants? Well just line up these easy to grow houseplants on your mantel for a big green wow effect.
Today at the nest the color is green. As in green plants, as in decorating with easy to grow houseplants, as in green-is-my-Summer-to-Fall-decorating-color-on-my-mantel.
Even though summer has only just begun in these parts, I was kind of ‘over’ my summer mantel. Not that I still didn’t like it, but I was in the mood for something new. Something to tie me over until I was ready to bring the Fall decorations out again.
A trip to the garden center gave me all the inspiration I needed.
I decided to go with green. Green plants.
Now I must confess I am not the best keeper of plans. They tend to die on me. Either from neglect or from too much love.
I needed dummy proof plants. ‘Cause I am a dummy when it comes to plants’. So I selected a collection of easy to grow houseplants that even I can keep alive.
So if I bring any plants into the house they have to tick the following boxes:
Rich in Flair and Oomph Factor
Did I say Easy
- Well these grasses ticked all of those boxes. They are all variations on water loving grassy houseplants. From left to right your are seeing variations of Chlorophytum, and Papyrus plants. They need quite a bit of water, actually they need a lot of water. But you can’t really overwater them (they like wet feet), so just give them a big gulp once a week and they are fine.
- I love the texture all those spiky grass leaves have. I love the subtle variations in the green too. I think this mantel qualifies perfectly for an in-between-seasons-mantle and these lovely green plants really make my life beautiful and yet keep it simple and easy. Just my kind of decorating.
This little one is my favorite. Those little round flowers look like tiny planets floating through the air.
Mix it all up with some green bottles and you have a new and improved mantel decoration.
