    I have more little pots of fake plants than I have real in my home and would love to change that! I forget to water plants and they all die. I would love a trendy fiddle leaf fig at some point. You give me hope that maybe I CAN keep something other than succulents alive :). Thanks for joining up with the hop.

    These are such great tips. I always want to have real plants in my home, but end up killing them. I will have to try some of those plants that are hard to kill. And I love all the different ways you’ve incorporated plants into your home. It looks beautiful and so full of life!

    When I picked up my real ivy plants so they could look nice for photo shoots (vs my fake ivy with missing leaves), the nursery warned me! “They are hard to keep.”

    I didn’t listen. But I got a good year out of them, so it was worth it! But… what a mess for that entire year. I’m super forgetful to water so plants just aren’t good in my home.

    Now fake or freshly cut flowers in water, or better yet, dried flowers? Game on!

    I do agree, a house just isn’t complete without a few plants and flowers. The proof is in your own gorgeous home!

    Yep, I’m a plant serial killer… No matter how hard I try, I kill everything. I think I over nurture them…. to death.. I’m going to look over that BHG list and maybe there is something that cannot be killed that I should try. I do know outside, I cannot kill asparagus fern. Maybe I should plant a little inside too for that pop of green. Thanks a bunch Stacy for these awesome tips!

    Huge lover of fresh plants. I am on a roll with the fiddle leaf. . .but nothing else. That is why I am on board with your $5 fresh flowers from the market thought. I treat myself each week and it totally brightens up my mood and home. Great post.

    I have a brown thumb…it might even be black. But this post is giving me the itch to plant something! That galvanized bucket planter is adorable!

    This is a great topic, I love having plants in my home and I don’t think its talked about often enough! I have fakers and real plants too for the same reasons you mention. This blog hop is so enjoyable to read through this morning. :)

    Hi are using WordPress for your blog platform? I’m new to the
    blog world but I’m trying to get started and create my own. Do you require any html coding expertise to make your own blog?

    Any help would be really appreciated!

    Thank you for this. I don’t have a black thumb, but recently realized that I lost almost all of my house plants a few years ago. Cold winter; 120 year old house. they were all in the unheated area off of the kitchen. They died, weren’t a priority and just never got replaced. I have 2 small ones left and they both sat on the kitchen window sill.
    Just the other day I picked up an old child’s chair and thought this will make the perfect plant stool… That is when I realized that I only had 2 in the entire house. It has been on my agenda, and your post comes at the perfect time for some encouragement!!!!
    Beautiful post with lots of great ideas. Can’t wait to implement some of them.
