Fall is a time to get cozy and cuddle up. After all of the weddings, reunions, and bbq’s of the summer season, it’s time to wind down. If you’re not quite ready to let go of the green of summer, here are some ways you can bring the outdoors inside for the colder months ahead.
Make sure your plants are cared for
Before you relax and recharge, make sure your plants are prepped for the upcoming colder months. Fertilize for the last time, trim any old or dead leaves, and repot if necessary. Check out Plant Mom’s advice for prepping your houseplants for the fall here.
Bring the outdoors in
Adding ultra-lush greenery to your home is the best way to keep the summer going. Try large tree-like plants to up the green-factor, like a Majesty Palm, Bird of Paradise, Fiddle Leaf Fig, or Money Tree. Place plants where you spend the most time, like your living room or office.
Once your plants are tended to, let’s rearrange. Switch up any stale energy in your space and rearrange your furniture and plants. Be sure to keep in mind your plant’s lighting preferences when moving, and you may need to slowly move them to their new spot over time, as to not upset them.
Place plants in unexpected places
Plants in the kitchen? On your dinner table? While you’re rearranging, think of some unusual places your plants could live. Placing plants in unexpected areas of your home sparks joy when you interact with plants in an area you normally wouldn’t. Plus, it adds interest to your space and reminds you to connect with your surroundings.
Create a relaxing plant care ritual
Plant care shouldn’t be a chore. Take time to slow down and be present when tending to your plant fam. Put on your favorite music, light a candle, and sip your favorite warm beverage while you water and care for your plants.
