Houseplants Brighten Your Home

Winter is a great time to brighten your home with plants!

Houseplants are not just pretty to look at but can offer so much more!

 

Plants have a variety of temperaments, lifespans and care routines, so your houseplants should fit your lifestyle and be as personalized as your own home. What better way to narrow down the options than to lean into your zodiac sign for answers? When in doubt, let the stars decide. https://www.thespruce.com/the-best-houseplant-for-your-zodiac-sign-4691910
