An important part of a cozy home is the greenery, don’t you agree? The indoor greenery makes a room feel like a home and not a naked hotel room. Some plants in your home will create a warmer and more alive environment. With lots of plants you can create an indoor jungle or forest, or just a balcony feel. I’m not there yet with my flower window, but I’m really liking it right now. I also have a few smaller plants in my tiny kitchen where I have a roof window giving them plenty of sun.
Also, plants help to keep the air fresh as it produces oxygen.
I knew, of course, that trees and plants had roots, stems, bark, branches and foliage that reached up toward the light. But I was coming to realize that the real magician was light itself.
The latest addition in my flower pot family, staying in my living room window, is this small ivy plant. I love the form and colour of the leaves and how it grows upwards and out; like it’s going somewhere.
In Swedish the Ivy is called murgröna which loosely translates to “brick wall greenery”, probably because of it’s climbing nature. I think it’s beautiful. The flower pot is a tea mug (thrifted) that I never used. Getting cute and perfect planters is half the fun. I do enjoy trying to find the right size at flea markets.
What is your favorite window/indoor plant?
