By no means do I have a true green thumb. But that doesn't mean that I don't enjoy the beauty that green plants provide. Perusing through my local Lowe's Hardware store, I spoke with a sales clerk in the indoor plant section. She showed me one of the plants in the Exotic Angel Plant line that she was marking down to $1.00. After showing me, on her phone, these gorgeous orchids that she was able to care for, she directed me to these clearance priced orchid plants. They were beautiful too, but I'm not ready for such a delicate plant. Instead, I saw a dead plant in a pretty planter. So, she marked it down to $2.00. Needless to say, I spent $3.00 that day. And I'm glad I did.
I removed a few dead pieces here and there, discarded a dead plant, wiped the smudge off of the new planter, and voila - I had a new plant friend to add to my home.
I chose to place this plant on the helper shelf in the bathroom, and I love it beside my hand-painted gourd.
How do you decorate your home on a budget? Do you use plants to fill in empty spaces in your home?
