My House Plants

Peace Lily

Could you believe I never had any house plants until a few years ago I started collecting succulents.

Then I found a pothos hanging plant at my local grocery store in the clearance area. He needed love and was only $4.

After that I decided I had to have more.

pothos-1

I Recently picked up some new plants that can handle low light. We have a lot of trees and we do not get a lot of direct sunlight.

I did research on which plants are good for low light and the Home Depot has a lot to pick from. Not my first choice to buy plants but we were there for a kid workshop and I saw the plants for $3.98.

pearlpothos-jade

This one is the pearl jade pothos. I picked up two of these. I like the color on this one. It has grown already from getting it about a week ago.

Pothos do well in indirect light and low light. Also letting the soil dry out before watering. I overwatered my $4 grocery store one at first and realized that when the leaves were turning yellow.

pothos-2

Here is when Harper and I put them into pots and a week later.

peace lily-2

I love the dark leaves on this peace lily. They thrive in low light but should not be near cold, drafty areas like windows. I found this website that explains about caring for these here. They are toxic for pets so if you have cats you should not get one of these and keep away from dogs.

Nasa ranked these in the top ten of air cleaning plants.

crispy wave

I thought this plant was pretty interesting, it is called the crispy wave. It is also great for detoxifying the air. It came with the pot and was $8. I have it in Harper and Weston’s room. Likes indirect light and soil to be moist.

This succulent is also new and I keep my succulents in the kitchen because we get a lot of sunlight in here.

And last these are the plants I’ve had for a while now and they are still alive except for the rosemary. I can never keep them alive.

I want to get some snake plants next. I’m having a hard time finding them and they are very god for cleaning the air in the house and says to take care of. I also would love some larger plants but not sure what I can do with our low light.

I plan to try making eggshell tea for natural fertilizer for my plants. Has anyone tried this?

Harper & Weston's Room Updates

Over the past year I have changed Harper’s room and decor around because Weston is now her roommate! For a little while anyway.

Please excuse the Christmas decor, some of these were taken a while back.

The biggest change was replacing the rug.

I have wanted to do this for a while. I happen to come across this opalhouse rug on clearance for $89 at Target one day. I did not buy it when I first saw it. I went home and thought about it and went back to get it later that day. It was $189.

They do not carry this rug anymore but they do have a huge collection of the pretty rugs here.

I changed out the butterfly curtains for light neutral ones. It has made a huge difference in the room. I also picked these up from Target, I really like the material. These are the line of curtains here.

The only thing is in store they were called white something, I’m not sure if they are the same as sour cream online.

Here is Weston before he could walk. Harper and Weston love playing in their room. I only keep a few toys in here and lots of books.

We found this adorable lamp at..you guessed it Target on clearance for under $9. It still sells for $30 online. Target is truly my favorite place for decor. Especially when it’s on clearance.

This nightstand is also new to the space. It use to belong to me when I was a teen. It needs a fresh coat of paint and I’ve been waiting on nice weather to do that and change the hardware.

This cute wolf wall decor ( that Weston loves ) was also a Target find and only under $6. Its no longer available but they have a few adorable ones available. I had to take the print off the wall, Weston was able to reach it.

Also Harpers bedding is new. She had a black and white cat print and I found this blush pink opal house set on clearance.

You can see the post I did few years back on the wall art by Pixers Here.

In February of 2016 I shared this room after we completed it for Harper, you can read that here.
