Finding the best plants for your home is a matter of deciding what kind of relationship you are looking for.
How to Find the Best Plants for Your Home
I am a life-long plant lover, but after sheltering-in-place at home for 10 months, I have become somewhat plant-obsessed. Our house has epic window sills, perfect for plants, so many plants. In March 2020, I had about ten beautiful plants in our living room. At last count, we have over 100 plants throughout the house. (Gosh, I hope my husband doesn’t read this article!)
Let’s start this journey to help YOU find the best plants for your home. We all know the wonderful benefits of having live plants inside the house: cleaner air, cozy hygge ambiance, beautiful home decor, stress relief, and best of all, plants never talk back at you.

Plants make perfect home decor accent pieces, especially when coupled with the right tray, planters, and pots. My favorite plant decor is using items creatively and not necessarily as they were intended. Take, for instance, these large candle holders from the Decocrated shop. I love using them as propagation stations for my Monstera plants, simply add a mason jar and a large plant clipping.
Once we find the best plant for your home, we will pair it with a cute plant decor piece from the Decocrated Shop. First, there are a few things you need to keep in mind.
Entering into plant ownership is like getting into a relationship:
- How much are you willing to commit to when it comes to time, space and money?
- Are you looking for a casual relationship that doesn’t require a lot of your time?
- Are you willing to put in more time for a greater potential outcome?
Plant relationships are not all that different from human relationships, except plants don’t roll their eyes at you, even when they become teenagers.
