bring spring indoors

Post image for bring spring indoors

plants are really pretty to look at but they’re also good to have around the home because they improve air quality.  they’re literally a breath of fresh air, and a way to bring a little bit of the spring that’s blooming outside into your home.

similar to the paper whites we posted about a little while back, amaryllis flowers are really easy to plant inside.  plus they come in bright shades of pink and red that are a welcome burst of spring color after the brutal winter we’ve had!

you can follow the same instructions as the paperwhites to do this yourself (see here) – the only difference is you’ll need a larger vase because these bulbs are much bigger, as you can see! the flowers grow pretty tall too so it’s a good idea to use a stake to keep them standing upright as they grow.

i never would have thought succulents could be so beautiful but they come in a huge variety of colors and textures you can combine to make a really beautiful plant… and you can be creative with the potting and arrangement to create something really unique.

instructions for planting your own succulents can be found here.

and just because… this wall of succulents is amazing:
