The Best Plants for First-Time Home Buyers

Real Estate Blog

July 28, 2020- Author- Maria Perez- Essencia Air

So, you just bought your first home. The furniture – a mix of your own old couches, a pre-owned dining room set, and IKEA shelves – is all moved in. Still, there’s something missing – something that will make the space less of a house and more of a home. Houseplants can do that for you, and so much more!

Why Houseplants?

Moving can be a very hectic process. Even after you’re completely settled, you might still feel restless and seek some comfort. Choosing, styling, and caring for houseplants will give you a reason to slow down and take a much needed break.

Plants have also been proven to reduce stress, boost moods, and promote better sleep! This isn’t just because plants make spaces look more cozy and inviting. Plants purify the air from harmful chemicals emitted by common household products. By removing these pollutants, which can often cause health complications, plants will help you keep a healthy mind and body.

Houseplants are an easy and affordable way to liven up any space. By curating your own personal collection, plants can make a new place feel like it’s truly your own.

Don’t know where to start? Here are six houseplants perfect to spruce up your new place:

Calathea Ornata

What better way to start your new collection than with a plant that symbolizes new beginnings? The vibrant Calathea ornata can help you welcome this incoming phase of your life. If you want to add a pop of color to your home, the Calathea ornata’s green and purple leaves with pink stripes are perfect for you!

Money Tree

The money tree’s eye-catching braided trunk and flower-like leaf pattern will add a unique touch to any space. But don’t let its exotic look fool you – this plant is not hard to grow. Money trees can tolerate irregular growing conditions, so they’re perfect if you’re new to plant parenthood. Additionally, they remove hazardous air pollutants from their surroundings, helping you improve your physical and mental health.

Money trees are common housewarming gifts because they are said to bring good fortune and financial prosperity to its owners. Go get yourself one and call it self-care!

Monstera Deliciosa

Truly the dream plant. If you want your friends to “Ooooh” and “Aaaah” when you give them a tour of your new home, the Monstera deliciosa will certainly get that reaction. Its broad, holey leaves are absolutely stunning, and they will make your place look like it belongs in an interior design magazine. While the Monstera deliciosa is relatively resilient, it does require a bit of attention to thrive. We promise it’s worth the effort, though!

Bird of Paradise

Much like the Monstera deliciosa, the bird of paradise plant will command the attention of anyone near it. Its upright stems flare out into gorgeous large leaves that will give your place a bit of a jungle vibe. Also like the Monstera, the bird of paradise plant can be very durable when cared for properly.

Fiddle Leaf Fig Tree

Fiddle Leaf Fig Trees are infamously finicky, but we can’t help our obsession with them! Those bushy broad leaves are perfect for that one sad corner of your new home that needs something.

ZZ Plant

Arrangement by Essencia Air

The ZZ plant is one of the most forgiving houseplants. It can survive in low-light and irregular watering conditions, making it ideal for beginner plant parents. They’re also adorable. The ZZ’s perfectly shiny leaves will make your home look like it came straight out of a Pinterest board!
