Choosing the Right Plant for Your Home Environment

House plants are a fantastic addition to any living space. Not only do they bring joy and colour to the dullest days, but they also provide fantastic benefits for both your physical and mental health. When choosing the right plant for your home environment, there are many factors to consider but fear not, we are here to break it down for you.

Understanding a Plant’s Preferences

When shopping for a house plant, it is common for us to fall in love with one and make a purchase without really understand what it needs to thrive. It is often only a short while later that we come to realise that the plant does not like where it has been placed. Understanding a plant's preferences before making that purchase is therefore essential.

Just like people, house plants have their own preferences and thrive in different environments. Some excel in hotter areas, near fireplaces and radiators; others prefer cooler spaces near open windows. Having an idea of where you would like to put your house plant is a great place to start when looking for that perfect plant.

Another factor to consider is how much maintenance your house plant requires. Given the right care, every plant has the opportunity to grow, bloom and add life to any environment but it is important to consider how much time and dedication that you are able to commit. At Jacob & Roy, we have a wide selection of plants that require little maintenance, combining a minimum need for care with maximum benefits.

A Low Maintenance Plant is the Perfect Addition to Your Home

Life can be unpredictable. We all have days and weeks when we feel like we do not stop so having a low maintenance plant can be the perfect addition to your home. Needing little sunlight and water, these plants are a great constant in your property, providing joy when you need it most.
