Most house plants/trees are low maintenance and if you are worried that you are a plant killer, then with these plants you will have nothing to worry about.
Below are a few tips on how to incorporate statement plants into your home successfully:
Determine the perfect room to place your statement plant
Look around your home/space and decide on which room you want to house your statement plant. It could be your living room, bedroom, common area, corridor, office , bathroom (depending on the size of course) etc.
While at it, decide on the spot you want your statement plant to go. Corner, next to the window, next to the fireplace, focal point of your house, smack in the middle of the room? You can play around with the placement of your statement plant.
Shop around for the exact plant you want in your space. Do your research on statement plants and decide on which one would suit your space.
Most plants will fit into any space but you will need to figure out whether some plants need to be near a natural light source or if they can thrive in a windowless corner.
Go big or go home!
Remember the trick is to go as big as possible or go home! We are trying to make a statement here.
There are other very low maintenance plant options like a gigantic cactus plant. See below
Instead of one huge plant, you could get several big plants and stack them together in a corner. If it suits your space and also if you’re about balancing the plants in your space, then go for it!
Get the right planter for your plant. Also, depending on where you are going to place your statement plant, your planter must be easy on the eye. You must invest in the right planter.
