Plants can be the perfect way to decorate your space. They’re easy to find, super affordable, and with enough time and attention, easy to maintain.

Not only do they provide an earthy aesthetic, but plants are also calming agents, which makes them the perfect addition to your home or office space.

Here are a couple of things to consider when you decorate your space with plants.


How your plants will flourish depends on the specific conditions of the environment that they find themselves in.

Temperature plays a critical role in affecting how a plant grows. Different plant species require different temperature range that is optimal for their growth. If you stick to that range, your plant’s leaves will expand and thicken, meanwhile, if you keep a plant in higher temperatures you might suppress your plant’s growth.

With the current seasonal change, what might have worked in summer, might not work in winter, so consider the temperature of the room.


Humidity is vital for some plants, which is why many of us plant lovers own spritzers. Plants evaporate water through their leaves and if an environment is too humid, they can’t get rid of the water vapour, stopping the process of evaporation and affecting the plant’s growth.

In the long run, this could mean that your plan is no longer able to take on new nutrients, which could be detrimental to your plant’s health.

Pet safety

If you have a fur baby, you wouldn’t want your plant baby to be toxic for them. Before even considering decorating a space that you share with your fur baby, ensure that the plant won’t be a safety hazard for them.
