Right now my favorite style of decorating is bohemian. Whether it be in my wardrobe or my home, I just love the vibe that I feel from it. Bohemian has a very “collected” feel with pieces, patterns, and textures that don’t necessarily match but all coordinate beautifully together. The Boho style is also center a lot around nature. One search for a bohemian decorating inspiration and you’ll see that the most common element you’ll find in the decor are house plants.
I was contacted not too long ago by Costa Farms. Costa Farms is the nation’s largest supplier of houseplants. They can be found in big box retailers like Lowe’s and Home Depot. One collection that is perfect for indoor gardeners is their Plants of Steel. These plants thrive in low-light situations whether it be natural or artificial light. And they require very little maintenance just water once or twice a week.
I was sent several of the plants from the Plants of Steel collection to decorate my home with. I’ve been putting these plants to the ultimate test since the day they arrived. You see, while I love gardening and the look of plants inside or outside my home, I’m a busy Mom. I often forget about little things like watering the plants if I don’t set a reminder for myself. My husband is my opposite, while he also enjoys gardening he often tends to OVER water plants. I had to instruct him that these plants only need water when the soil seems dry.
I chose to add the Plants of Steel to two different rooms in my home. My home office/homeschool room which is in our basement and my bedroom both of which contain very little natural light. I spend most of my time in these rooms everyday. I want the feeling of being in nature when I’m unable to be outside. Going on nature walks and hikes with my family in the woods is something we enjoy in our free time. It will be nice to bring a bit of that feeling into our most used indoor spaces through the use of house plants.
5 Easy to Grow, Low Light House Plants to add a Bohemian Vibe to your Home or Office:
- Snake Plant – Sansevieria trifasciata
- Sago Palm – Cycas revoluta
- Chinese Evergreen – Aglaonema sp.
- ZZ Plant – Zamioculcas zamiifolia
- Ponytail Palm – Beaucarnea recurvata
I’m really surprised at how well these plants from the Plants of Steel collection by Costa Farms have held up. I’ve tried many different types of indoor plants in the past and all have bitten the dust at some point or another despite my best intentions. But these Plants of Steel have already lasted several months in our home. We’ve even begun to see new growth in many of them! I can not recommend the Plants of Steel collection from Costa Farms enough.
Decorate with Living Plants
My ultimate goal is to have lots of plants in each room of our home. I know that whenever I want to add new plants to our home, that I will definitely be looking for plants in this collection. They thrive so easily and very minimal effort on my part. New plants also gives me the excuse to buy some more cute planters and macrame plant hangers. I have 3 macrame plant hangers in my kitchen that I absolutely adore. Fresh plants adds so much life to any room. Honestly, do you think there is such a thing as too many macrame plant hangers in one house?
