Our homes are where we spend the most time with our families so we want to make it happy and healthy. A great way to do that is by added houseplants to various rooms of your home. Houseplants increase the look and air quality of your home and it’s so easy to do. There are several types of plants that are low-maintenance but look luxurious for that person on the go.
Succulents are small, desert-like plants that come in a number of varieties. They have become increasingly popular in recent years due to their adaptability to many different environments and their low-maintenance level. Perfect for the frequent traveler.

English ivy likes its soil to be a little bit dry so there is no pressure to keep it watered.
