January 26, 2018

Craving sun, the Remodelista editors headed toward southern exposures this week. What winter design ideas did they find? Houseplants. Everywhere. Here are five ways to fight the winter blues with a cheery indoor plant:

Ferns in the Bath

This week&#8\2\17;s Remodeling \10\1 post is in praise of wall-mounted faucets (and lacy ferns to to distract the eye from heavy, exposed plumbing).

To keep a Maidenhair Fern like the one shown above alive in a dark room, see our tips in Best Houseplants: 9 Indoor Plants for Low Light

Velvety Succulents & Cacti

For tips to keep your indoor succulents alive in winter (and beyond), see 9 Secrets to Growing Succulent Plants Indoors.

Giant Air Plants

One trick to keeping air plants alive is to know what kind of Tillandsia you have. To identify yours, see Air Plants 101: How to ID a Tillandsia. And keep it alive with our tips for plant care. see Gardening 101: How to Water an Air Plant.

Courtyard Jungle

Above: A jungle of tropical plants hides a fence and creates instant atmosphere in a courtyard in Charleston. See more in this week’s Restaurant Visit.

Want to get the look? See our tips in our guide to Tropical Plants 101. And for more inspiration, we’ve dissected the look in Jamie’s Jungle: At House with Houseplants in London.

Friendly Philodendrons

Above: Do furnishings make the room? Or is it the happy houseplants that make this sunroom look so inviting? See more in Southern Modern in Charleston.

Monstera versus split-leaf philodendron: can you tell the difference? Annie offers step-by-step guidance in Gardening 101: Monstera. And if your space is too small to accommodate a big tropical plant, we’ve got a solution, see Monstera Deliciosa: Big Plant, Small Apartment.
