There’s something so refreshing about adding a plant to your indoor living environment. Perhaps it’s the colors and textures of nature juxtaposed with man-made things. Maybe it’s their “living” presence in the room or the fresh air they provide. Although not all plants are suitable to be brought indoors, the ones that are allow us to grow our love for these fragile creatures by tending to their needs. The simple act of caring for a houseplant can teach the patience, persistence and perseverance needed to nurture nature. Just like tending a garden, the hard work of sowing, watering, and providing a favorable environment will reap reward over time.
