Spring is a great time to redecorate your home. Bonnie demonstrates how to style your indoor plants while incorporating care tips that will ensure they remain beautiful and healthy.

  • If you’re wanting to fill space, go for a big statement indoor plant like a Fiddle Leaf Fig or Philodendron.
  • These plants work especially well as an accent feature in open living where they add drama and colour. Try to avoid putting them in smaller spaces as they can become overpowering and make the room feel cramped.
  • If your home is quite modern, using plants with statement foliage is often a success.
  • If you are looking for structure, try Sansevierias. These plants are great for adding height.
  • If you are after a more rustic style, go for softer, graceful textures. Plants like ferns or Spathiphyllums will soften a room with a lot of hard lines and wooden furniture.
  • If you dream of having an indoor jungle, but lack the space, try trailing plants. Epipremnum’s come in all sorts of colours and they are perfect to have perched on a shelf where their foliage can be left to cascade.
  • Grouping plants in odd numbers, so 3 or 5, is great way to give depth to a room. Always put the tallest plant in the back and stagger the smaller plants to the front.
  • Feeding plants with granular or soluble fertiliser a few times a year will guarantee better success.
  • Scotts Osmocote Mist+Feed can be applied straight onto the foliage, where your plant will absorb the fertiliser and micro-nutrients directly.
