I Have 15 Plants in My Apartment, and Here's How I Keep Them Healthy and Growing
Few things bring me as much calm as taking care of plants. I never thought I'd be about that life, but 15 plants later, it's become a treasured pastime. It frees up mental space so I can fully be in the present, and there's something so rewarding about watching them grow.
No, you don't need a green thumb to keep plants alive, but you do need to apply yourself. With the different types we have, including monsteras, philodendrons, a snake plant, a majestic palm, and a fig tree, my husband and I spend at least two hours a week watering, repotting or pruning.
In two years, we've managed to keep our plant babies healthy and growing. We occasionally have to deal with brown leaves, but for the most part, our urban jungle is alive and well. If you're a new plant parent struggling to maintain your indoor plants, shop these must-have tools and get ready to tend to your very own garden.
