QUIZ: What kind of houseplant should you get?
Oh, houseplants. They are wonderful and make an awesome addition to your zen den but choosing which plant to buy can be walking on shaky ground. Does my house get enough light? Should I go big or small? What kind of upkeep does this plant need? Can I completely neglect this thing, pour vodka in it, and still have it thrive? How can I show my friends and family that I am, in fact, an adult who can handle keeping things alive?
All the questions flood your brain, I’m sure. Obviously, what I’m getting at is that I created a handy-dandy quiz for you! And even though I’m not technically a botanist or someone who has studied plants, at the very least, I have kept a great deal of them alive SO TAKE THAT! Sorry, didn’t mean to yell. I hope when you take this quiz it gives you the confidence needed to walk into that greenhouse with attitude next time!
Oh, you are still reading after being presented that cute button? Awesome, thanks for being a loyal reader! If you took the test and you’re not really feeling your quiz result, no problemo - take it again and switch up your answers! You’ll probably be presented a whole new houseplant to look into and research. I tried to have the results different enough to satiate any plant-lover’s palate but tried to keep in mind everyone has different spaces and care levels. I know in my own 900-sq-ft bungalow I only have one east-facing window that is full of all my direct sun babies and another window in my kitchen which is west-facing for the indirect babes. I keep the harder-to-kill plants in my bedroom and bathroom where the light is partially direct and only shows up for a few hours of the day. Every space is different, whether you live on a farm in the country or an apartment in the city, be sure to choose the right plant for the right light and you’ll be on your way to being a crazy plant person soon enough!
