Finding Room For Houseplants
Finding space for anything in my less than 750 sq. ft house is a challenge anyway. But where do I put my numerous houseplants? I finally pared down to 6 beloved specimens that I've owned for many years. A couple are from cuttings made from plants owned by my deceased mother and a couple were hers originally, so there is no parting with them. I dumped or gave away the rest. Just when I thought I'd reached a manageable number, I fell and broke my wrist. Guess what well=meaning friends and co-workers sent to cheer me up...houseplants! Actually they are two pots filled with many different plants. They're lovely and I really appreciate the thought, but it's starting to look like a jungle in here again. To make matters worse, my house is a split level with boxy rooms...no nice cubbys or spaces to tuck in a plant.
So are there are plant lovers out there who want to share how they find space in their smaller homes for greenery? I could use some ideas. (When I'm able to separate those pots into separate planters, I'm really going to be in trouble!)
