Moving into a new home is always an adventurous experience, so naturally you will have people to come over and celebrate your newfound nest. Just as a nest is composed of various, handpicked materials, you can strategically place certain flowers throughout your home. What better way to paint your own personality into your home than orchestrating it into a floral arrangement? The best part is, you'll never get tire of caring for each flower!

From the get-go, the Maranta Red Plant-also known as the Prayer Plant-would be the first choice for your new home. It comes from Brazil and was name the Prayer Plant after an Italian Botanist who saw that the leaves are flat during the day, but they fold up like praying hands at nighttime. These are some of the best indoor plants to have because they're lowkey enough to spruce up your walls or countertops, but are beautiful enough to not be disregard as shrubbery.


Taking care of these plants is not that hard. All you need is a pot with a well drainage system, so when you water them the excess water can drain out by itself and the plant can absorb the amount needed. For the soil, you can make your own or buy a potting mix that is easily available almost anywhere .

During the initial growing stage of your plant it needs water frequently. Always check the soil before you water them again. Letting it dry out completely or leaving the soil moist can damage your plant.

House plants mostly need indirect sunlight, so place them in a corner where there is shade and indirect sunlight as well. Leaving your plant in direct sunlight can damage the leaves and fade the color and eventually the plant will burn from heat and turn brown. Fertilizing your plant also plays a great role in keeping your plant healthy and happy.
