Summer may be coming to a close, but Texas is never short of sunlight! Indoor, summer plants add a pop of color to any work space and can be more than just aesthetically pleasing. Fixing up a home? Complement replacement windows with a variety of indoor plants to add color, texture and interest to the room.
Not only does this plan love direct sunlight, it also has a myriad health benefits! Simply break off part of a thick, green leaf and use the slime to help heal a minor cut, as a face mask or even as part of a smoothie or drink. Aloe Vera gel contains a variety of antioxidants and enzymes that are beneficial for skin injuries like a sunburn or minor cut as well as simply boosting overall complexion. The plant is also easy to maintain and aesthetically pleasing.
Why not spruce up the kitchen and finesse your cooking skills with fresh herbs and spices? Create a garden window with herbs like thyme, rosemary and mint which are fragrant additions to a variety of dishes, take up minimal space and love direct sunlight.
Succulents & Cacti
Succulents are a huge trend right now – and for good reason. They require very little water, don’t take up a lot of space and come in a variety of colors and patterns. Cacti are a classic, minimal-effort plant that add texture. Buy small succulents and cacti, and combine them in one pot to create a miniature, artistic garden.
Garden windows add a relaxing element to a work or home environment and complement the natural light of a room. While being aesthetically pleasing, many plants offer other benefits as well. Whether complementing your home windows or sprucing up a dull space, indoor plants add variety and color to a room.
