Tips + Tricks: Plants (+ a Case Study Planter Giveaway)

 

If you’re anything like me you’re home is slowly being taken over by a jungle of houseplants. I don’t have the greenest thumb, but I try to help it thrive and grow as much as possible by attempting to give them the right amount of water, feeding them occasionally, and reading up on anything that might help me out. (And when one kicks the bucket I replace it and move on.)
