Blooming (Plant) City


If the idea of indoor plants makes you think of a dusty crystal ball or the fern from Jurassic Park, get ready for your world to be rocked. Indoor planters are the perfect way to liven up your living space, whether it’s a studio apartment or a sprawling loft. Having indoor plants helps you relax and enjoy nature in all its glory, even if you’re living in NYC! In this blog post, we’ll go over some of our favorite ways that trendy plant-lovers can use indoor planters to beautify their urban spaces.

Use planters to make the most of awkward spaces

Even if you have a small apartment, there are ways to make the most of your space. You can use planters to help you do this. In fact, plants are great for making the most of awkward spaces in general. For example:

  • If there is an empty corner in your apartment that doesn’t get enough light or air circulation, try putting a potted plant there! This will make it feel more cozy and inviting while also being aesthetically pleasing and helping with air quality.
  • If you have an oddly shaped room that needs decorating, maybe add some plants so that they take up some of the space (and create nice visual breaks between walls).
  • If you have blank walls that need something on them but don’t want pictures or posters (or don’t want those things for aesthetic reasons), put up some nature photos instead!

Make your home smell divine!

Your home should be a place of comfort, not merely a space to sleep and eat. It’s also an environment you can use to improve your health. One way to do that is by using indoor planters.

Plants are great for cleaning the air in your home because they suck up all kinds of toxins, including formaldehyde, benzene, and trichloroethylene. These chemicals can cause headaches as well as symptoms of dizziness or nausea—and they’re found in everything from furniture to carpeting and paints. A study conducted by NASA confirmed that plants can absorb these toxins and even showed that some species were better at it than others! So you might want to consider getting some houseplants if you live in a place where clean air isn’t quite as abundant (city living).

In addition to cleaning up harmful chemicals from our homes’ air supply, plants can also help reduce stress levels by giving off oxygen-rich CO2 gases that make us feel calm when we breathe them in regularly throughout the day (or night!). So whether it’s stepping into a greenhouse full of exotic flora or simply keeping an office pot alive during winter months without neglecting its needs completely…

Indoor plants soothe your mind — and take stress OFF it!

You know the feeling: there’s a stack of papers on your desk, you’re staring at a computer screen and the clock is ticking. You can’t stop thinking about how you need to finish an essay or prepare for an important meeting. You try to focus, but it feels like there’s so much energy in your brain that no matter how hard you try, nothing works. You’ve got a million things on your mind and not enough time to do them. It’s called stress.

In addition to taking care of your body with good nutrition and exercise, plants can help relieve some of this stress by providing peace and calm in our urban environments as well as taking away clutter from our homes! They also provide relief from bad air quality caused by indoor pollution (like from cooking) by helping clean up pollutants like formaldehyde – which is why bringing more green into our lives makes sense when it comes down to lowering stress levels in NYC

Create a mini jungle in your apartment.

Think about the plants you want to use in your apartment and how they’ll work together. If you want to create a mini jungle, try pairing succulents and cacti with ferns and ivy. Use air plants as filler for larger planters or to bring color into an otherwise monochromatic space.

This is also an opportunity to make a statement with your planters—and remember that there are no wrong answers here! If you love bright colors, go crazy with them on your terrace or balcony; if neutral tones are more up your alley, that’s fine too! The point is just to figure out what kind of environment will best suit the plants you choose so they can thrive in whatever space they inhabit.

Give indoor plants as gifts.

  • Give a plant as a gift to someone who is sick or recovering.
  • Give a plant as a gift to someone who has just moved into a new home.
  • Give a plant as an office gift for your coworkers who are going through a difficult time at work.

Living in the city doesn’t have to mean living w/o nature.

Living in the city doesn’t have to mean living w/o nature. Here are some tips for making use of your indoor plants, both during and after winter.

  • The key is to keep your plants alive. Make sure they have enough water and light, but also make sure you’re not overwatering them which can cause root rot, or under-watering them which can cause leaf drop.
  • Your plants will need to be protected from extreme cold weather and winds that could damage their leaves, so bring them indoors if necessary! If this isn’t possible because of space issues or other reasons such as allergies (to pollen), there are options: one is covering leaves with plastic wrap when conditions aren’t ideal outdoors; another option is bringing plants inside temporarily until conditions improve outside; another option is purchasing artificial plants made from silk or other materials instead.*

Indoor planters can make all the difference between loving and loathing your city digs.

Indoor planters can help you love your city digs

Indoor planters are a great way to make your home feel more like home. They can also help you feel connected to nature, relaxed and productive, healthy, and even happier overall. As much as we love spending time outside in the summer months (or any season of the year), there are some days when we need a little extra boost in our lives that only comes from green things growing where they should be—inside our apartment!

The city is full of great opportunities to use indoor plants; here’s how!

Blooming (Plant) City is a blog about using indoor planters in the biggest city in the USA: New York City. This blog is written by Steven, a native New Yorker who loves plants.

City dwelling has its ups and downs, but keeping plants in your home is one way to turn it into a sanctuary where you can escape from the hustle and bustle of big city life.
