I prefer to purchase plants that are going to be very difficult to kill. Not because I fear that I will kill them, I’m actually quite good at caring for my plants (thanks Mom!), it’s because, like most people, I don’t need one more thing to take care of everyday. After working, cleaning house, running errands, cooking, feeding all the mouths in my house, and taking care of myself, I don’t need to worry about watering the plants. So when I decided to add new plants to my home, I chose the most easy-going, low-maintenance plants that I could find. Enter succulents!
I picked up these beautiful gems at Lowes with the help of my cute little puppy. (Did you know Lowes allows dogs in their stores? It is a super awesome treat for my little guy!) I had a few empty pots sitting around but my plain ‘ole terra cotta pot was in need of some major color!
The project only took an afternoon and it increases the healthy oxygen output in my home. As I mentioned in my “Taking Care of House Plants” post last year, it is important to have 1 plant for every 100 square feet in your home. These three little guys increase the health and happiness in my home making this afternoon project definitely worth it!
