Houseplant Personality Types: Find Your Match!
Our brand is built on the idea that plants, while wonderful, aren’t a one-size-fits-all addition to your home. The plants you choose to add to your life should match your unique personality! If you’re a Miles, you may resonate with the easy-going plants that require little attention in order to thrive. If you’re a Max, you may lean towards the bright and bold blooms that are sure to add a show-stopping effect to your home. Whichever personality trait describes you best, there is a plant with similar qualities that will make a perfect match!
If you’re a go with the flow type of person, a pothos is a perfect match for you! The Pothos plant is known for its heart-shaped trailing foliage that complements many styles. It is a very undemanding houseplant that thrives in bright, indirect light and low light environments, so it fits nicely on a desk, coffee table, or even hanging from the ceiling.
Water this plant when the top inch of soil has dried out to keep it happy. With its easy-care requirements, this houseplant is perfect for newbie and experienced plant parents alike.
Reserved: Money Tree
You are someone who enjoys alone time and often keeps to yourself, much like the money tree. The humble money tree is a classic piece of foliage that is known to be easy to care for and may even bring you some luck! With their beautifully braided trunk and glossy green leaves, it’s no surprise that they have been a popular choice to freshen up a home for quite some time!
For a 5-inch money tree, water with 2 ice cubes or 3 TBSP of water once a week and keep it in a bright location, avoiding direct sunlight.
You are bold, confident, and stand tall, just like the show-stopping orchid. Known for their ease of care and beauty, Phalaenopsis orchids bring the right touch of style and a bright pop of color to any space.
To keep this bold beauty happy, water a 5” orchid with 3 ice cubes or ¼ cup of water once a week while keeping it in bright, indirect light.
Exploding with charisma, you are like a people magnet. You love to experiment with patterns, textures, and bright colors in your home, making this plant a perfect addition to your quirky decor.
Calatheas thrive in consistently moist, but not soaking soil and thrive in bright, indirect light. This plant is safe to keep around your furry friends too!
You’re loved by many and flexible to your surroundings, no matter the situation- just like the ever popular monstera! Native to the tropical rainforests, the monstera is easily recognizable by its large green foliage and natural leaf holes. Its charming nature makes it a great option for plant experts and beginners alike!
Monsteras enjoy medium to bright indirect sunlight and are extremely adaptable to indoor environments! They like to dry out a bit between waterings, so water when the top 2-3” of soil feels dry to the touch.
You are persistent, independent, and have no problem supporting yourself- just like a succulent! Succulents often do best when they are left alone and allowed to soak up some sun. Their plump, water retaining leaves allow them to thrive in periods of drought for weeks at a time. Ranging from all different sizes, patterns, and shapes there are plenty of succulent varieties to add a touch of green to your space. The best part is, they won’t get too upset if you accidentally miss their watering day!
Keep your succulents happy by placing them in bright, indirect sunlight. Window sills are often great places for them to call home! In the summer months, you may need to water a bit more frequently (once every 2-3 weeks) versus the cooler seasons when you will probably water only every 3-4 weeks. Always allow your succulents to completely dry out in between waterings.
