Here are five things you need to consider when buying house plants:
- Your Commitment Level Matters Most
Your commitment to the care you provide to your plant is most important: how dedicated are you to taking care of your plant? Plant care is simple: it grows when you provide them with the things it needs, water, light and soil. For example, some plants require water daily, weekly, etc. Decide how much effort you are willing to invest.
- Where Do You Want to Put It
Well, the next thing you would want to consider is where you want to put it. If it is for a worktable/desk, a small plant would be sufficient. Adding a plant will enhance the table/desk. A short plant would be ideal so that it does not take over your workspace. On the other hand, if you are vying to fill up a corner in a room, a plant with a decent height that grows at a decent rate would be a great idea.
- Ask Is the Plant You Choosing Toxic
This is very important, especially when you have children and/or pets at home. You would want to insure the plant is not toxic if ingested by a child and some plants are not recommended for pets. We want all living in the home to be safe, so take a moment to choose the right plant.
- Learn About the Plant Light Requirements
Plants need light. We all have studied that in the photosynthesis chapter in our school books. Well, consider the plant light requirements. There are low-light houseplants, high-light houseplants, and medium-light houseplants. You need to consider the access of the light to the place where you want to put the plant and then make a decision.
- Humidity Consideration is Important
Last but not least, you do not want your plant to die because of the lack of humidity. There is no point in bringing a tropical plant into dryer environments. If you do, make sure you ensure the right humidity is in the place.
