Learn how to pick a plant that is suitable to your lifestyle
Figuring out what plant is best for you can be a little challenging at times! This is why we've decided to come up with a cheat sheet on how to get the right plant for you!
The absolute first thing to consider is your LIFESTYLE. Now whether you are a homebody or always out and about, picking plants that are most similar to your lifestyle will definitely benefit you. If you're someone who lives life strategically you may be more inclined to purchase plants that are a little more challenging since your lifestyle allows you to be more planed oriented. A great option for you can be Elephant's Ear, Tradescantia and Fiddle Leaf Fig. These plants require a close eye, but if you can successfully care for them it is totally worth it. For those of you who have a go with the flow mentality, you may want to consider plants that are easy to care for and less meticulous. Plants to consider for optimal success for you would be, Succulents, Air Plants, Aloe Vera and Pothos.
Second thing to consider is SPACE. As we like to say, let common sense be you guide. If you live in a smaller space, you probably don't have much room for a Big Bird of Paradise. Yet, you may have the right amount of space for a Friendship Plant (Pilea), as it small and can be easily propagated, therefore, this plant is perfect! On the plus side, you can share parts of your Pilea with your friends!
Third thing to consider is LIGHTING. Although some plants may not need much light, it is required that they receive some source of natural light. When purchasing a plant it is important to consider where you'd be able to place it. If your house doesn't get much light, you may still be able to grow houseplants that don't require a lot of natural light. If this is the case, try growing Philodendron, Pothos, Snake Plants or Dieffenbachia. On the other hand, a great option if you're looking for a plant that thrives in bright sunny light, try growing a Fiddle-Leaf Fig and Rubber Plant.
I hope this simplifies the decision-making process for you!
