1. Know the style of your home before buying plants. Plants work best if its form complements the structure of your home’s interior design. According to Cynthia Brian, co-author of Chicken Soup for the Gardener’s Soul, the type of plant you must buy should be in harmony with the design style of your home.
- Think of balance and harmony. Aside from considering the design style of your home, you must also think of its size and capacity. We don’t want to place a Traveller's Palm in the middle of your living room, do we? We want the plants to blend with your home environment. It does not only keep harmony in your home, it also boosts the architectural quality of your space by making your home closer to nature.
- Take good care of your plants. According to Feng Shui experts, plants must be kept healthy and placed strategically in your home to invite positive energy. Regardless if you believe in Feng Shui or not, taking care of your plants is already given. Some plants may need to be watered more frequently or be exposed to sunlight on a regular basis. Some are better placed outdoors than indoors. For this reason, when you buy your plants, it is advisable to ask your vendors on tips on how to care for them. They are the experts and they are your best resources if you need advice or help.
