How to Care for Plants While You are on Holiday

Every time I go away for a longer time, I used to wonder and worry – will my plants survive? I am an expat and am in a relationship with one too, meaning, I travel quite a lot between our home-countries as well as new places we decide to visit. So how do I care for my greenery at home whilst I am away?

  1.  Move them away from direct sunlight
  2. Watering, pretty much summed up in this video below, and believe me, it works like a charm!

Pretty easy, no? Now it even surprises me to think it used to be one of the things to stress me out while getting ready for vacations!

YOu can take it a step further and create/buy pretty container for water and keep the watering system all the time – saving your valuable time and minimizing the need to manually water your plants!

I hope it helps you as much as it helped me! If you have any other suggestions please do share in the comments below!

11 Air-Cleaning Plants That Are Easy to Care For

Especially for those living in big and busy cities, air-purifying plants are essential at home. I, unfortunately, do not have green thumbs and used to manage to kill at least one specimen quarterly. Now I try to stick with more resilient plants that can survive under my care!

I have only a couple of these but plan to expand the collection in the future.

Added bonus – they are incredibly beautiful and Instagram worthy!

Besides being beautiful, having any of the plants below in your home may provide a variety of health benefits, including:

• Provide Cleaner Air

• Clear Congestion

• Natural Humidifier

• Prevent Allergies

• Increase Happiness

• Improve Mental Health

• Relieve Headaches

• Provide Inspiration

• Improve Sleep

• Negate Cigarette Smoke

• Reduce Carbon Dioxide
