There is nothing more welcoming than coming home to rooms filled with plants and flowers.
Especially, a vibrant, plant-filled vertical garden.
They are so visually-appealing.
Plants lift my mood and titillate my senses.
Plus, plants are always a great way to help improve the air quality in your home.
House plants are great options for your home if you’re looking to spruce up empty spaces or to
add more vibrant color to a room.
Plants always make a great addition to shelves and tabletops, but what do you do when you don’t
have any room in either of those spaces.
That’s exactly the problem I face — living in an urban apartment with limited space for plants.
Most surfaces in my small apartment are already covered with the trinkets and treasures I have
culled from many years of traveling,
collecting and cherishing meaningful mementos.
Not sure where to add yet another item in a home that’s filled to the brim?
Even a beautiful plant?

Choosing Plants for Your Vertical Garden
When selecting plants for your vertical garden, consider which blooms will thrive in the elements
where your vertical garden will be displayed.
Keep in mind the amount of sunlight the space will get and whether it’s indoors or out.
Trailing vines that hang out of their metal pots will make for an attracive vertical garden.
Consider planting herbs in the kitchen or choose smaller succulents that require minimal upkeep.
It is also very important consider the weight of the plants; avoid any large or heavy greenery.
Here are a few good plants to choose from:
- English Ivy
- Fresh Herbs
- Golden Pothos
- White Marble Pothos
- Boston Fern
- Bird’s Nest Fern
