Houseplants have long since adorned our shelves, windowsills, and other empty places around the home. They tend to be potted in plastic or the typical clay pots, but sometimes the beauty of the plant itself gets dulled by the unattractive pot it sits in.
Thankfully there are a number of alternatives you can look to if you want to spruce up your houseplant collection AND make a statement in your decor.
Aside from planting a beloved pet in a new and attractive container, you want to be sure the plant is getting the appropriate amount of sunlight and water.
A watering can isn’t the only way to water houseplants. In fact, you can get creative with watering methods too. Find a way that matches your style and schedule, and still meets the needs of your plants for a unique gardening experience.
