Houseplants to the Rescue
Dec 01, 2016 06:55PM
For those looking for some festive flair this holiday season, Greensgrow's has planters all potted up and ready to go with an assortment of ferns, prayer plants, crotons, coffee plants, Christmas cacti, cyclamen and a large selection of succulents. They have plants potted in a variety of containers: ceramic, aluminum and glass. Their greenhouse is stocked up with both hanging planters and terrarium supplies, too.
Instead of the usual wreath for holiday decor above your mantel, consider a few houseplants that will be able to be enjoyed for years to come. Showy plants, like red or pink cyclemen, are perfect to display in a fireplace. In place of cut flowers, try a Christmas cactus in a cachepot and watch them bloom.
During the winter, we spend more time indoors, hiding under blankets with the windows shut tight, making for dry, low-quality air. House plants provide oxygen and absorb carbon dioxide, cleaning the air. Their superpowers also include increasing humidity, keeping temperatures down and reducing dust levels.
