Brighten Your Home With Potted Plants

Do you have a pesky concrete slab in front of your house or maybe you don't have outdoor space to put in a garden. In this case, the best solution to add color, light and cheer to your home is potted plants. They add interest and beauty to a space and there are no limits regarding your creativity, use of color or which plants you can choose. One area where you can really let your creativity run free is the plant's container. Nearly anything can be used as long as it can hold soil and water.
Traditionally terra cotta was used since it absorbs water and helps keep the roots moist. All containers must drain, so make sure yours have holes. Keep in mind that the container is not too heavy from where you are displaying or hanging it. Once you've decided which plants you'll use, make sure you get some recommendations for the type of dirt to use. There are mixes made especially for potted plants. It may be helpful to visit a nursery or check out photos online to get inspiration for the colors and style of plants you want to use. Keep the leaves in mind, since your flowers won't always be in bloom. Get tips from gardeners about how much sunlight and water is good for your plant.
