    Fill Up Your Home With Plants On The Cheap

    Fill Up Your Home With Plants On The Cheap

    I don’t know about you, but over the last few years, I’ve drastically increased the number of plants in my home. The extra touch of nature brings me great joy, but the price of the plants, pots, and soil can really add up. Here are a few tips for filling up your home with plants on the cheap.

    Don’t Buy Your Plants

    Instead of buying all new plants you can plant seeds or trade cuttings with friends, or cut your own from your current plants. Yes, they will take longer to grow, but that’s part of the fun. You can also check your local area for plant swap parties and check on Craigslist for free plants people are giving away when they move.

    Save On Repotting

    One of the areas I spend a ton on is repotting plants as they either come in a plain plastic carton or the pot they come in doesn’t match my décor. One easy way to reduce the cost of repotting is to find an online retailer that sells natural fiber plant baskets. You just slip the plant in in its current pot and no one will see the original. The basket will have to be the right size though. I also buy pots on sale, from garage sales and thrift stores, and have even painted terra cotta pots in the color I want. 

    If you are new to houseplants succulents are always easy to care for as well as ivy, spider plants, peace lily, and bamboo.
