Indoor Plants that Brighten a Room
With a corner fireplace in our family room, it is difficult to know how to decorate it. I did have a couple of larger plants that I have been growing since back when I worked at a garden centre during my university days. I bought a few new smaller tropical plants, along with some colourful pots, and the whole room feels brighter and more lively!
The middle larger blue pot is from Terra Greenhouses - it is a Scheurich ceramic pot from Germany. We also have a larger Jade plant that is now living inside a white Scheurich pot (pictured below). The smaller orange-red and yellow glass pots were purchased at Crate & Barrel.
The plants, from left to right, are: "Forget Me Knot" (the branches are shaped into a knot) Dracaena marginata, Dracaena, Money Tree, Ficus, "Autumn Splendor" from the Croton Collection.
I also have a really big Jade plant that just keeps growing and growing! It is a little bit out of control at the moment, even after being trimmed back a bit. I think I need to stake the plant a bit so the branches don't grow all over the place.
