Repotting My Snake Plant!

My snake plant is growing like crazy! I’ve been meaning to repot it but just haven’t found the time until now! Lol

There were 3 separate snake plants growing in one pot! Can you believe that?!

The root was so thick that I had to cut it! Check it out!

But now they have all been repotted and I’m sure they’re feeling better now haha!

New Addition!

If you’ve been following me for a while, you know that I am a plant mom and I just love caring for plants! Those are my babies are my top priority until the real babes come along lol!

I used to have an Aloe Vera plant back when I lived in NYC, but unfortunately it died! Yes even plant moms sometimes lose their plant babies, happens to the best of us lol.

Now that I’m in my new home, I decided to get another Aloe Vera plant!

Aloe Vera is beneficial for:

-treating sunburn

-improves digestion

-has antibacterial & antioxidant properties

-improves dry skin

-purifies the air

Check out the video clip of me repotting my Aloe Vera plant! You can find it on my Instagram page here!

Also feel free to follow me and say hello and I will do the same! =)

Do you have any Aloe Vera plants or have you used Aloe Vera before?

5 Plants That Purify Indoor Air!

There are a wide variety of toxic chemicals lurking in your home. Formaldehyde, a volatile organic compound that’s emitted in low levels by a variety of household products and furniture, may cause cancer in humans and has been known to trigger asthma attacks and allergic reactions when present in high levels. 

I am one who loves finding natural alternatives to solve any problem so here is an all natural solution to detoxify the air around you! Add these 5 household plants that NASA scientists have discovered helps remove formaldehyde and purify air to your home for a safer, cleaner atomesphere!

1. Boston Fern

This plant removes more formaldehyde than any other plant. They’re also very effective at removing other indoor air pollutants, such as benzene and xylene which are components of gasoline exhaust that may travel indoors if you have an attached garage. Feed them weekly in seasons when they’re growing, monthly during the winter, but they like to be watered regularly. 

2. Palm Trees

Palm trees are good at removing formaldehyde and are easy to care for. The best at formaldehyde removal is the Dwarf Date Palm, which is closest in appearance to the palm trees that remind you of the warmer climates, but other alternatives are Bamboo Palm, Areca Palm, Lady Palm, or Parlor Palm. Palm trees prefer cooler temperatures in the 60-75 degree Fahrenheit range. 

3. Rubber Plants and Janet Craigs

A rubber plant or Janet Craig would be good for an office space that’s screaming for cleaner air! These plants benefits office spaces where most furniture is made from particleboard held together by formaldehyde-based glues. Both can tolerate very little sun even though that may cause slower growth. 

4. English Ivy

Grown outdoors, English Ivy has the ability to climb structures and can be used as a decorative element in your living spaces. This plant likes part sun and part shade, so it’s a good plant to try indoors and isn’t as temperamental as Boston Ferns. Occasional watering and misting will keep it healthy. 

5. Peace Lily

One of the few houseplants that will bloom indoors is the Peace Lily. It’s also another good office plant and prefers low light conditions. It also has a high development rate that will humidify your air. Just be aware the leaves can be poisonous to pets and children. 

I hope these plants were helpful for you! What plants do you have in your home?
