Energise Your Home With Plants


SUCCULENT PLANT

Do you ever get a sense of plant energy? I do it all the time, especially whether I'm in a forest or a botanical garden. Plants provide me with a sense of calm and happiness. Despite the fact that I reside in a lovely part of the world, Tea Gardens NSW, surrounded by water and National Parks, I nevertheless have a balcony full with plants.

Even if you don't think you can garden, I'd like to dispel that notion since everybody can garden, even if it's only a few indoor plants. Plants require light, water, and fertiliser, as well as love and care. Yes, they can sense your energy in the same way that animals can.


You may simply liven up your living space by choosing easy-to-grow plants and placing them in attractive containers.


Here are five plants that will add colour to your home.

CROTON

COLOURFUL CROTON

Also referred to as "Picasso's paintbrush." The lovely plant comes in a variety of colours, including red, green, copper, orange, yellow, pink, ivory, and brown. It's a lively plant with lovely patterns. It might even flower if it's in the right position. They're a tropical plant that requires plenty of moisture and humidity, as well as bright indirect light. Check to see if the potting soil is well-drained.


BASIL

Basil has an intoxicating aroma that no one can resist. It's an easy-to-grow culinary herb that may be cultivated indoors, on balconies, or in the garden. Basil's smell repels mosquitoes and flies, so plant plenty of it to keep them away. Mist your Basil regularly and position it in direct sunshine to keep it happy. Basil is an annual plant, thus it must be replaced every year.


ALOE VERA

The Aloe Vera plant's fingers create a cooling gel that may be applied straight to the skin and is known for its therapeutic capabilities. The Aloe Vera plant can help with mild burns, scrapes, and cuts. The anti-inflammatory qualities of aloe vera juice make it popular.


Aloe Vera is a plant that can be cultivated inside, on a balcony, or in a yard. It is simple to spread. Allow this plant to completely dry out between waterings; it requires bright light and gravelly soil or potting mix.


ENGLISH IVY

This lovely evergreen plant is ideal for hanging from the ceiling or displaying on a shelf, and it collects undesired particles in the air. English ivy is used to reduce air pollution in many cities, and you may see it growing on the living garden walls of high-rise buildings. Ivy is a simple plant to grow, preferring most soil types, partial light, and well-draining soil.


CHRISTMAS CACTUS

Cactus are one of the easiest plants to cultivate if you nurture them in the right conditions. They require warmth in order to develop blossoms. The Christmas Cactus blooms in the winter, which is unusual for these desert-adapted plants. The blooming in the dead of winter will put a smile on your face. To preserve this plant content, add some sand to the potting mix.


There you have it. Plants not only look beautiful they are also a way to decorate your home.
