Quirky Plants To Bring Spring Vibes Indoors

Quirky Plants To Bring Spring Vibes Indoors

Spring is the perfect time to add some pizazz to your place! Whether you're a seasoned plant expert or just getting into your indoor gardening journey, you've got to try these! Colour? Check! Refreshing foliage? Double check! 

1. Bromeliad (Neoregalia)

Bromeliads are one of our fave plants. Why? Not only do they look cool, but they have amazing flowers! The kicker? They're pretty low maintenance!

Light: Place it in bright, indirect light. The hate direct light, so don't scorch those leaves! 

Water: Water your Bromeliad by filling the little cup in the middle of the plant, as well as keeping the soil slightly moist. Usually once every 10 days is enough. Use Grow Concentrate for extra growth.

Humidity: Bromeliads love some high humidity, so place it in a cluster of plants or check out our humidity tips.

2. Air Plant (Tillandsia)

Air plants don't require soil to grow - bonus! In the wild, they attach themselves to rocks, driftwood, or other rough surfaces. Use them on a shelf or coffee table.

Light: Give these babies bright, indirect light. A few hours of direct morning sun will keep it happy.

Water: Add Grow Concentrate to room temperate water, and submerge the plant in room temperature water for about 30 minutes every two weeks, then shake it off and dry it out!

Air Circulation: make sure it's not too crowded; these babies need some space for air to circulate.

3. String of Pearls (Senecio rowleyanus)

Spring is the perfect time to try out the String of Pearls. If you get it right, you'll be treated to pearl like 'leaves' and a striking display. 

Light: Get it into a bright spot, but avoid direct light from the sun. 

Water: Let the soil dry out like a bone between watering. 

Container: Use a well-draining potting mix and a container with lots of drainage holes.


4. Calathea Orbifolia

This beauty gets a bad wrap. But as sensitive as she can be, the Calathea Orbifolia adds a touch of elegance to any room. Here's some care hacks: 

Light: Avoid direct sun AT ALL COSTS! Indirect light is a big plus. 

Water: Keep the soil consistently moist - when you put your finger in to the soil, a few dirt particles should cling to your finger. Ideally, let your water sit for a couple of hours before watering; it will remove chlorine.
