Plants and planting. Some ideas and guides you might find useful

Lucky Bamboo

Lucky Bamboo is probably the coolest little “pot plant” out there. Bright green and twirling, I think that having this on your coffee table is something that will start a conversation.

Of course, nobody’s going to say no to good luck, so Lucky Bamboo will not go wasted. Along with your Money Tree (the famous Pachira Aquatica), this could bring you health, wealth and happiness. If you win the lotto after buying one, I hope you’ll pop by and say thanks…

If you don’t, well, like I said, your Lucky Bamboo will be a really cool addition to your stylish home. It goes really well with dark wood, especially because of the way Lucky Bamboo tends to be bright green.

And, if you order it online, you will probably receive a free vase of sorts. But, look around, and see what the Lucky Bamboo could look like in your home. You don’t even need to buy it for yourself, as Lucky Bamboo would make a GREAT gift.

Size isn’t everything

Just because you have a small house or apartment, doesn’t mean you can’t have a christmas tree… I know a lot of people would sacrifice a lot of space to have a large Christmas Tree, but this is also not necessary. The tree doesn’t have to be large. Take a look at this tree:

Pot Plants – Indoor Plants

IndoorPotPlants.jpgAnother good idea for making a place look more lived in is to add a few pot plants. Of course, don’t go adding plants that your gran would have added (assuming you are not a gran). Some indoor pot plants that can be really nice (and, once again, cheapish) are cactii (cactuses), or similar plants.
