I’m no plant expert, but I definitely love my little plants!
Ok, some are not so little, but you get the idea! Watch the full video tour HERE.
My fiddle leaf fig is my newest addition. He’s definitely got some browning on a few of the leaves. Poor little Phil! But I think that’s mainly the after effects of bringing him home while it was snowing outside! But hopefully with some tender care he’ll be good as new in a few months.
Our living room is definitely a high traffic area for our 4 kiddos, but we love having plants around to liven up our minimalist decor.
Did you know you can actually grow your own tree from the leftover seed in your avocado?
Just poke 3 little toothpicks into the seed around it’s middle, and suspend it over a cup. Keep the base of the seed touching water and in a few weeks you’ll start to see the seed crack and roots begin!
Another really fun one to grow your self is a pineapple plant. Just save the top of your next pineapple and remove any remaining yellow fruit. Peel back some of the leaves at the bottom, and put it in a shallow dish of water. After a few weeks roots will develop and you can plant once their about an inch long!
Meet Oliver! He’s the most petit of the group, but someday he will be a mighty olive tree!
Aloe is a fast favorite in this house.
We are constantly trimming them and using them on scrapes and burns.
Mother-In-Law’s Tongue is a perfect air filtering plant. These remove Formaldehyde, Benzene, carbon monoxide, and actually quite a few more! NASA did a study on air filtering plants and these were among the top!
Small but mighty!
These were just a few- make sure and watch my full Houseplant Tour video to see them all!
