My Mom loves playing in the dirt with flowers, trees, mulch and such, but she can really grow house plants. I like yard work too but I was never really into house plants until I was gifted a peace lily a couple of years ago. The peace lily is a super popular and inexpensive house plant with pretty white blooms. I took pretty good care of it until I went on vacation and when I came back, she had pretty much died. I watered here and stuff but she was gone. So off to Lowe’s I went shopping for a new plant – looking for something super hardy that, like a cat, could take care of itself for the most part LOL. I found this beauty, a chinese evergreen. The tag on it said plants of steel and that you could go on a two week vacation and the plant would be fine. Ding, ding, ding, we have a winner. I like this plant, it has large, dark green leaves and she has been thriving!
Now I love the heavy decorative pot I have her living in right now and the dark color works well with my living room, but I really want something with more oomph, more jazzy, so I started looking for ideas. I saw this stand on my favorite idea source Houzz! The elegance and height of this plant stand adds something special to a simple space.
Shop Plant Stands
This house plant styling is pretty fancy in this home but a stand is the look I am going for with this plant vs. just sitting it in a pot. My favorite are the metal stands, which are good for adding texture to a room. The two choices from the Target Threshold collection are really nice and affordable. Do you have any house plants and how do you display them in your home?
P.S. The peace lily might be making a comeback…saw some tiny greenery on it!
