Buying plants isn’t as easy as it looks. First, you need to decide on the level of commitment you’re willing to give. Does a plant need to be watered every few days or bi-weekly? Does it need to be in the sun all of the time or can it sit somewhere near the shade? Does it need to be repotted often?
All of these are good questions to think about when purchasing plants — if you want to keep them alive anyways. Based on these factors and others, Bloomscape, an online plant retailer, makes it easy to find the perfect plant for you.
Every plant sold on Bloomscape comes with specific instructions on how to care for it — and some options are very forgiving. The low-maintenance Tough Stuff Collection, which includes a Hoya, ZZ and Sansevieria, only requires partial light and very little water. Plus, you can choose between three different colors of pots.
Shop: Tough Stuff Collection, $65
If you’re looking for a larger, yet still easy to care for plant, check out the Bird of Paradise potted plant. You can choose from five different color pots for this one.
Shop: Bird of Paradise Large Plant, $150
Both of these plant options, the Tough Collection and the Bird of Paradise, are natural air cleaners and can remove toxins from the air inside your home. However, buyer beware: These plants are not pet-friendly. (You can shop pet-friendly plants here.)
Right now, Bloomscape is offering free shipping on orders over $75 and most plants ship within 2–4 days. Whether you’re a tall leafy green person or more of a cactus type, there’s a plant for you.
You can learn more about Bloomscape on the episode of “You Need This” above.
