Spring Green - Indoor Plants for Dark Places

So I really love plants, and I really want a garden, but alas, we live in an apartment that has no outdoor space whatsoever. So I'm looking for some indoor flora inspiration.

Ferns are great for low light spaces.

 This is a beautiful little set, but the fern itself isn't real, which I suppose I would prefer...but I guess that makes it perfect for spaces that have no natural light?

I love orchids! I got the orchid bug a few years ago, but for various reasons I don't have any in my current apartment. Usually I buy the crapped out ones from Walmarts when they go on sale for $5. Historically I've been pretty good about getting them to re-bloom, but alas they all met a tragic end when I spent a month in Tokyo and my mother forgot to water them. This terrarium is totally bananas! And it's on sale for the low low price of  $249.

 I've been considering putting some air plants in our bathroom, but I'm pretty sure the lack of windows mean they're not going to survive very long - but I'll give it a shot.




I spent a few years working at a plan nursery and would always take home the sickly plants that had been returned. Hence I came into possession of a large staghorn fern, which was totally awesome...and which was usurped by an ex ex boyfriend. I've since learned that replacing it is ridiculously expensive, so I'm not sure if I can ever forgive him of his plant thievery. Especially since he never even took care of it. Hmph.

  2. That is the gaining of superb experiences for the tyke and for the planter. You can likewise purchase a garden stone and customize it by putting your most loved cultivator's name, or the year the garden was built up. Personalization can transform a plain blessing into something one of a kind. useful reference
