Indoor plants serve many purposes in the home. They provide a beautiful accent, have a calming effect, and cleanse the indoor air, improving quality. Vining plants are an inexpensive way to create a decorating theme. Ivy can be hung from a hanging pot in order to draw attention to a room feature, or cascade down shelving, even around windows. Pothos vines are recommended for the novice, as they are very trainable and hardy recruits when it comes to watering needs and can survive over-pruning.
- Pothos is an especially hardy vining plant that even a beginner can keep healthy with some water and pruning.
- Philodendrons are another inexpensive and relatively low-maintenance vining plant that will do well in low light.
- Maidenhair vines are good for when you need a more compact plant and it can thrive with strong or weak sunlight.
“Leaf shades range from the deepest green to variegated white and yellow, all adding a touch of class to your space. Ivy demands bright light (otherwise you risk legginess and disease), making it an especially excellent choice for patios and sunrooms, but it can make a home by any sunny window.”
