Cabins are a great place for a getaway where you can immerse yourself in nature. They are meant to be relaxing, as well as comfortable and by adding some indoor plants you can make them truly homey. Here are some of the best indoor plants to decorate your cabin with.
Plants can help any room feel more inviting and welcoming. They allow you to bring a bit of the outdoors inside. By choosing the right plants, you will have the perfect decorations.
If you have plants in your cabin, you want them to be ones that are relatively easy to take care of as you may not be there every day. Fortunately, there are some great plants that require little care that can brighten up your cabin.
Succulents are great plants to have because they are beautiful and require little care. Succulents will need six hours of sunlight every day and only need to be watered about once a week. They can be planted in pots, bowls, and even mason jars.
The best succulents for indoors include Jade Plant, Aloe Vera, Zebra Plant, Panda Plant, Hen-and-Chicks, Burro’s Tail, and Crown of Thorns. For soil, you can buy a premade succulent mix or you can make your own mix. The container you use to plant your succulents should either have drainage holes or a layer of rocks or pea gravel at the bottom.
Ferns are a beautiful touch to any home. They come in many beautiful different varieties and make great accent pieces. They are often low maintenance, so they are easy to take care of, as they only need to be watered every few days and need liquid fertilizer about once a week.
Ferns do best in indirect light, from either north or east windows. They need around 70% humidity, so they either need to be sprayed regularly or have a tray underneath with some pebbles. Some of the best indoor ferns include the Boston Fern, Bird’s Nest, Maidenhair Fern, Lemon Button Fern, Staghorn Fern, and Holly Fern.
Ivy can be a lovely plant to have in your cabin. These beautiful cascading plants make wonderful additions to your home, as they are often easy to maintain. Not only do they look great, but they can also help cleanse the air of toxins.
Pothos Ivy can grow in most lighting conditions, as long as it doesn’t have low light. It only needs to be watered every few days. It is best grown in a hanging basket or as a climbing plant.
English Ivy is another popular type of ivy and it can even come in different varieties. It does best with moist soil and cooler temperatures. It only needs to be watered once the soil is at least 20% dry.
