Top 5 spooky indoor plants – ideal for Halloween!

Top 5 spooky indoor plants – ideal for Halloween!

As we creep into spooky season stocking up on sweeties for Halloween and sipping spiced pumpkin lattes, the Simply Plants team have put together their top 5 indoor plants that give us the chills:

5. The Spider Plant

Starting things off and mainly picked for its nickname we have the spider plant (also known as the Airplane Plant but that doesn’t sound as scary!) Its Latin name is Chlorophytum comosum and it is nicknamed the spider plant not because they attract and harbour spiders, but rather the little plantlets or offshoots at the ends of long wiry stems are “spidery”.

This plant is very popular and easy to grow, provide the spider plant with well-drained soil and bright, indirect light and they will thrive. Water them well but do not allow the plant to become waterlogged as this can lead to root rot. In fact, spider plants prefer to dry out some between watering. If you wanted to know more about keeping a spider plant check out the link below:

4. Ficus with doubled Spiraled Trunk

Next on our list was picked purley for astetics, the Ficus also known as the weeping fig can be grown with a spiraled shaped trunk, this trunk is magnificent to look at but does give an errie strange vibe to the plant.
Ficus plants do well in bright, sunny conditions, but can also tolerates considerable shade. It requires a moderate amount of watering in summer, and only enough to keep it from drying out in the winter. The plant is very sensitive to cold and should be protected from strong drafts. Here is a handy article with a few tips for growing a Ficus tree in your house:  https://gardenandhappy.com/ficus-tree/

3. The Snake Plant

Commonly known as sanservira, this plant has a few names including the snake plant and the comically named mother in laws tounge. We picked the snake plant as the name gives us the chills but also because of its ascetic, The way the foliage grows twisting and turning makes the plant look snakelike, adding the green and yellow hues definitely gives this plant a serpent like feel.

Sansevieria are quick growers in the right conditions, they tend to grow to around 1-2 feet, with some growing in excess of 3 feet, depending on the environment. They are also fantastic air cleaners, purifying air by absorbing toxins through the leaves and producing pure oxygen. In fact, the Sansevieria is an ideal bedroom plant. Whereas most other plants release carbon dioxide at night (in the absence of photosynthesis), the Sansevieria produce oxygen. For more information on the snake plant read this article: continues to https://www.proflowers.com/blog/snake-plant-care

2. Devils Ivy

One of my favourites on our list, Devils Ivy aka golden pothos. It is called devil’s vine or devil’s ivy because it is almost impossible to kill and it stays green even when kept in the dark. The name Devils ivy conjures images of something sinister and scary but coupling that with the fact this plant grows well in the dark, well that’s enough to creep us plant enthusiasts out.

When Devils Ivy grows in the wild, the plant attaches itself to other items and trees through aerial roots. It then sends shoots of stems down until it reaches the soil beneath it, where the stems themselves take root and begin to grow across the ground. It is quite an invasive species if left to grow in the right conditions, much similar to its family member the English Ivy that can be seen in gardens up and down the country. For hints and tips about how to tame and care for this plant check out the link below for an easy to follow YouTube video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AfSkfg2VRR8

1. The Venus Flytrap

This plant had to be top of are list as it embodies everything spooky and is a pop cultural phenomenon when associating Halloween with plants. One of the things making this plant so sinister is that the leaves of Venus’ Flytrap open wide and on them are short, stiff hairs called trigger or sensitive hairs. When anything touches these hairs enough to bend them, the two lobes of the leaves snap shut trapping whatever is inside. Ultimately the plant digests whatever is trapped inside, providing this plant with the nutrients it needs to survive.

The Venus flytrap is probably the best known of the carnivores. Carnivorous plants are not at all difficult to grow indoors, so long as you have a buggy spot for them to live. A sun porch window where doors open and close frequently to let in insects is perfect. For more tips about the Venus Flytrap follow the link:  https://www.flytrapcare.com/venus-fly-trap-care-basics

All of the plants on this list are available from local garden centers or online retailers so if you fancy spooking up your interior plant displays for Halloween pay them a visit. Remember to follow the links provided for more information about particular specimens and most importantly have a Happy Halloween from the team here at Simply Plants!

Simply Plants at the county show

Earlier this summer the Simply Plants team took a trip to our first county show in the town of Uppingham. This market town in the county of Rutland is situated in the East Midlands of England, located off of the A47 between

Leicester and Peterborough.

We were fortunate enough to procure a lovely space to set up our Simply Plants stall surrounded by lots of wonderful local businesses selling a variety of different products ranging from home grown produce to dog biscuits and everything in between.

Before getting to the show we had ordered stock from our suppliers in Northampton, choosing the most coulourful and vibrant specimens of the Bromeliade family. They came in a whole range of colours including deep reds, gorgeous oranges and stunning purples. We chose specimens from the Bromeliade family as they are easy to maintain, they have striking colourful foliage patterns and they survive in almost any environment favoring both light and dark spaces to thrive in.

We also chose to display our spectacular hanging baskets on our stall, these were bold white in colour mixed with lovely green foliage, giving a pure aesthetic that complimented and did not distract from the Bromliades array of vibrant colours.

We chose to advertise a few of our living interior plant displays, similar to the displays we use in offices and commercial buildings but tailored the display more for a homely environment. We used plants within the displays that are easy to maintain, make a lovely statement within a house and that can tolerate most lighting conditions. Our Yucca plant display was a big hit, gaining a lot of interest from customers for its tropical aesthetic and muted blue coloured circular container.

We set the stall up early that morning, making sure we had enough specimens on show, that all of the technical devices were working correctly and that we had our newly made Simply Plants A board sign made by T3Signs Northampton set up for everybody to see.

The whole team had a lot of fun working on the Simply Plants stall, we loved chatting and getting to know the many people living around the area. Giving advice to customers on plants they had at home and specimens that they

brought from our stall. We also enjoyed liaising with the local businesses that had stalls set up around us, comparing products and trying out a few for ourselves. It was very different from our normal working day, where the team installs and maintains beautiful indoor real plant displays, in various offices and commercial buildings throughout the midlands.

Over all it was a successful day which the team enjoyed and we will be looking at doing many more in the future, so keep a look out for Simply Plants at your local county shows and any business events that might be around your area.

Lets Talk about pot plants

Lets talk about pot – plants!

Pot plants come in a variety of sizes,  specimens and colours.  If you are having trouble keeping your mini plant displays happy and healthy, this guide might give you a few tips and possibly some green knowledge to take away with you.
I will only focus on a few specimens and small desktop pot sizes, as there is such a variety widely available in any local garden centres and even in our supermarkets. The plants I am looking at today are gifted to me or are emergency casualties I have taken in from friends and family to replenish.

First of all when picking a houseplant you need to make a decision on the  pot you will place it in.  Ask yourself a few of these questions:  What size would fit best in my room? What colour would compliment my room?  How decorative do  I want my pot?   Will the pot or plant take centre stage as the main focus? Do I want a quirky, plain or patterned design?

 

Here are a few of my own desktop pots ideal for windowsills and shelving spaces. Always check the pot to see what irrigation system is in place, some pots require you to keep the plant in a pot with holes in for drainage that will sit inside the chosen pot.  Others will have built-in irrigation holes allowing excess water to trickle out. This is important so the plant roots do not get damaged. Always check with a member of staff where you brought the pot if you are unsure.

When picking your plants question what sort of environment will it being placed in. Will your plant be next to a sunny window? A warm radiator,  A dark corner?  All these factors must be taken into consideration, as all will affect a plants growth.

 

Here are some of my green friends and where they like to live: Money Plant (Loves a sunny window sill, doesn’t like a drink often)

This plant is hardy and tolerates direct sunlight very well, which makes it ideal for a windowsill situated in a sunny area. It will forgive you if you miss the occasional water as likes quite a dry environment. Unfortunately, the money plant doesn’t live up to its name… I’m still waiting.

 

Ivy (Loves climbing in a shady spot)

This ivy, in particular, prefers in direct sunlight in a shady spot but there are variations available such as Devils ivy which love a dark space and will thrive providing they are not overwatered. My active friend here likes a regular drink and stands up tall with some support from instruments it can cling to and climb.

 

Aloe Vera (Loves to sunbathe and into home remedies)

Again there are different variations of Aloe Vera around; this healing plant can be used for all sorts of medicinal purposes including burns and scratches. It is probably best to liaise with a professional before making any of your home remedies but this plant is hardy, likes scheduled water but tolerates heat and sunlight well. This plant will tell you if it is not happy in  the environment placed in but will recover when it’s happy.

 

Peace Lily (Loves a regular drink and plenty of attention)

My elegant friend here loves to be the centre of attention, producing beautiful white flowers for all to admire, it needs indirect sunlight to produce flowers and requires a regular drink to keep on blooming. A shady spot is ideal for them but be careful if you have any feline friends in the same place, as these flowers can be toxic to them. They are a hardy houseplant that will let you know instantly what they want, when thirsty it will completely droop looking almost as if it has passed away, but give your display plenty of water and it will soon spring back up to life, it is a bit of a trickster in that respect.

 

Orchid (Loves a humid space with a particular terrain to thrive)

In the wild this plant is naturally a parasite plant, living on the top of trees in rainforests to survive.  With naturally vibrant and unusual patterns on its flowers, the orchid is a fan favourite. I think of this plant as a fussy friend that loves a spa day! These plants love humidity and indirect light; bathroom windowsills are an ideal spot for these plants providing the sunlight isn’t direct and there are no drafts. If unable to place in a bathroom try lightly misting it in a similar environment. Instead of soil this plant much prefers sitting on bark, as it will absorb the nutrients and moisture from it easier. Words of warning do not get the air roots directly wet or else this plant will sulk. If you keep this plant humid it will reflower, they often look like they have died once the flowers have gone but with a bit of TLC and the right space, they will bloom again.

 

Sansevieria (An all-rounder that doesn’t drink much and loves sun)

 

You may know this plant more commonly known as ‘Mother in laws tongue’ this cheeky plant is a versatile all-rounder.  Be careful not to overwater as they love a dry sunny environment, indirect sunlight lets this plant thrive so most window sills provide an ideal environment for it. Very dark spots can be problematic for it (like most plants) but this is  a hardy specimen that will tolerate most environments, it will also forgive you if you miss the occasional water.

 

 

There is so much fun to be had picking your houseplants and displaying them in rooms around your house, office or workspace. Many businesses have natural plant displays, which not only enhance the look of their environment but they also come with large health benefits, as they filter out toxins and pollutants from the air caused by everyday technology. If we can do this in offices around the world why not with our own house.  Each plant has different needs ands likes getting to know these traits is what makes having a houseplant so much fun.

Caring for your indoor Plants (Free tips and an plant hacks by professional urban gardeners)

If you are anything like me, in the past you may have had a few plant casualties around your home. Before joining Simply Plants and learning professional care for my green friends I had my fair share of withered greenery. Here are some of the hints and tips (Plant hacks) I have learnt throughout the years:

Watering

A common sin for plant owners is overwatering. One golden rule is if the soil feels damp to touch then the plant does not need anymore water and you can leave it for a few days to dry out before watering again. Another tell-tale sign of overwatering is that the leaves will turn yellow/brown and drop off of the plant.  Moist soil can lead to various problems such as root rot that will almost likely kill

your  plant  if  left  untreated.  Also  insects  love  making  a  snug  little  nest  on  your  favorite plant display if the soil is damp. Under watering is another common problem, make sure your plant display is getting a regular water as surprisingly most plants love a routine. It is a hard task to get the balance right but a moisture reader  (available  from  most  garden  centers)  will  help  you  achieve  a  perfect  balance.

I have just touched on bugs taking up residence in the soil and they can be a nuisance, especially if left to breed, before you know it you will have an infestation on your hands and a very unhappy plant. At the first sign of any bug nest  (typically black fly) it is best to use bug sprays, soil treatments and traps from your local garden centers and DIY  stores.  A natural alternative I have found is cinnamon although not as effective as the sprays it is an eco-friendly alternative. Dressing your plant displays with pebbles on top and keeping the soil slightly on the dry side will advocate the risk of flies and other creepy crawlies.  If all else fails and you are still persisted by wrigley visitors the best thing to do is change the soil.

 

Avoiding drafts and heat sources

To thrive plants need the perfect environment,  not too hot and not too cold, so when positioning your plant displays, take this into consideration.  Make sure your plant is not placed on top of a radiator and that there are no drafts coming through open doors or windows. If plants are placed in hostile environments they will not thrive and in some cases will lead to dehydration.

Light and temperature

Both of these are very important when picking the correct spot for your display. Some specimens are very hardy and will tolerate changes and in light and temperature, others are very sensitive and will not thrive. The best thing to do before buying a plant is to read the label,  if it does not come with one you can research the plant online as there are a variety of information sites dedicated to plant care. Both will tell you the ideal lighting, best temperatures and also how much water the specimen likes.
Plant feed:

Our final task was to make sure the displays had plenty of water and clean of any dust whilst starting life in their new home. We will visit them regularly to make sure they stay fit, healthy and in great condition, maintaining these beautiful creations on a regular basis. All of our stunning bespoke displays are available to rent or buy from our website so please contact us for more details.

How plants move: Behind the scenes of an installation

I’ll be honest, installing and maintaining plant displays is a fantastic job especially if you love plants like me! But have you ever wondered about how the displays appear in an office?

We were asked by one of our lovely clients in London to install some bespoke plant displays in their new office, they wanted something modern which complimented the décor of their offices.

In this image we used a Kentia Palm that adds a bold statement to any environment, coupling it with a unique white container keeps a clean contemporary look. Displays like this can be seen in a variety of business establishments and I’m going let you in on a secret of how they get there…

First of all we needed to buy our stock, including containers, soil and the plants (keep an eye for future posts showing you how we create our stunning displays).
Once we have all of our urban garden ingredients, we plant the specimens individually with care. In this instance there were 21 tailored displays, 15 small pot plants and 20 fresh posies to create. After the finished product we had to load our van carefully so we had no casualties during transportation.

Our van may have looked an organized mess but was structured so everything is securely in place. Regular stops were taken to check on the plants and containers, ensuring no damage incurred during our journey. Finally at our location in the center of London, after a few hours driving on the M1, we needed to unload and find a space out of the elements to temporarily store our bespoke displays.

For this installation these office displays were held at a stairwell on the ground floor, creating an interior jungle look for any passers by, our task was to move them from here up to the 3rd and 5th floor.

With our trusty trolley in hand we moved each display up a few stairs and fitted 3 displays at a time into the lift. Some employees were very shocked to find a mini jungle when calling the lift to their floor!

Once on the right floor we positioned the plant displays in their correct places, factoring in light, heat and many other variables, matching each plant specimen with their ideal spot. This enables the specimen to thrive in the environment that it is placed, enhancing the natural growth and keeping the plant looking its best at all times.

Our final task was to make sure the displays had plenty of water and clean of any dust whilst starting life in their new home. We will visit them regularly to make sure they stay fit, healthy and in great condition, maintaining these beautiful creations on a regular basis. All of our stunning bespoke displays are available to rent or buy from our website so please contact us for more details.

Urban Gardening: Bespoke Living Wall Dividers

Exciting new annual event will be set against the glorious backdrop of Chatsworth, in the rolling Derbyshire landscape

We’ve created something Bespoke, fresh and exciting at Simply Plants! Thanks to help from our friends at Christian day we have created a bespoke Living Wall Divider for one of our wonderful clients in Milton Keynes.

This was a big project for us but enabled our team to really get creative with the type of plant specimens used. Not only did we have to consider the usual complications of lighting, temperature and many other elements, we also had to consider the growth of the plants and how they would look interacting with the display as they grew.

Our team had a lot of fun picking the right plants to fill and grow within these modern urban planters. We used Sanserveria more commonly known as mother-in-law’s tongue on the top tiers to provide height and Golden Pathos also know as devils ivy around it. This will be trained along the bars and beams of the divider by one of our talented technicians providing even more coverage.

Hardy succulents were used on the middle tiers with less light giving the planters a modern contemporary twist but adding a much-deserved pop of colour between the green hues.

For the lower levels with less light a Dranecna plant mix was used. This was to provide a difference of subtle shades and a contrast of green tones. The lemon and lime really steals the spotlight in this group acting as a thriller in the display, where as the white stripe compliments and makes an easy transition to the pure white bespoke containers.

This stunning installation allows an office space to be partitioned in a softer way, which is pleasing to the eye. It provides a workplace with major health benefits and packs a big impact on the mental wellbeing for the people working around it. As these beautiful plants start to grow they will provide cover, dividing two areas of the same space but keeping it as one whole.

We will be maintaining this bespoke urban jungle display, updating you throughout the year on its progress…

6 Ways Nature Helps You Get More Out of Your Employees

If your employees are bored, stressed out or burned out, could a touch of nature in the office be the answer?

According to a new report by Human Spaces, employees whose workplaces incorporate natural elements, such as natural light, greenery and views of the outdoors, are more productive, more creative and feel more positive about their work.

Nearly half of employees surveyed in The Global Impact of Biophilic Design in the Workplace have no natural light in the workplace, and almost six out of 10 have no greenery (live plants). But when these elements were introduced into workplaces in various experiments, employees had a 15 percent higher level of well-being, were 15 percent more creative and were six percent more productive overall.

Biophilics studies the relationship of humans to the natural world — a relationship that’s becoming more important as more people migrate to urban environments. In fact, one-third of respondents in the survey say the way an office is designed is so important that it would affect their decision to accept a job or not.

In today’s high-stress workplace, the report says, “Nature contact has a restorative effect on people, helping them deal with day-to-day stress and … maintain their work performance.” Even if you don’t have employees, nature can have the same effect on you. How can you bring more of nature into your office, co-working space or home-based business? Here are some suggestions from Human Spaces.

Get More Out of Your Employees Using Nature

Start at the Entryway

If you have a lobby or foyer in your office, adding bright colors and live plants can give you and your staff an energy boost from the minute you walk in the door. Two-thirds (67 percent) of respondents report feeling happy when walking into bright office environments accented with green, yellow or blue. In addition, those who have internal green space in the workplace are nearly twice as likely to feel happy and inspired when entering the workplace, while those without green space were almost twice as likely to feel anxious or bored about the day ahead.

Promote Natural Lighting

Natural lighting is by far the most-desired element in office design, cited by 44 percent of employees. In addition, employees with window views spend significantly more time at the office each week than employees without them. Ideally, this means locating employee workspaces near an outside window. Figure out how you can rearrange your office layout to bring more light inside, whether by removing curtains, window blinds or furniture that blocks natural light. To maximize the benefits of natural light, consider locating common areas near the windows instead of the old-fashioned approach of giving a few key employees the coveted window seats. Skylights are another option for providing natural light for everyone. If you don’t have many windows, choosing indoor lighting that most closely mimics the spectrum of natural light is helpful.

Use Color to Energize

Natural colors — specifically, white, yellow, browns, greens and blues — boosted the productivity, happiness, enthusiasm and creativity of employees in the survey. You can use color selectively to achieve different goals: For example, paler natural shades can help people calm down and focus, while brighter shades will energize them for creative work group projects. Avoid gray (even though its very trendy right now) at all costs — it increases stress levels and drains enthusiasm and creativity.

Get Green

Live plants inside the office and green space outside it boost productivity, creativity and enthusiasm. If you want to keep the costs of plant maintenance down, mixing live and artificial plants can be a budget-minded solution. So can concentrating the live plants in common areas where everyone can see them and enjoy the benefits.

Create Both Open and Quiet Spaces

Almost 40 percent of workers say they are most productive in a private office at their own desk, but the growth of open-plan offices has made this arrangement harder to come by. As a result, 28 percent of respondents say there is no quiet space to work in their workplace. Try to create quiet spaces such as comfy couch nooks or small conference areas where people can go to get peace and quiet.

Last Resort: Fake It

The study found that simulating nature, while not as effective as the real thing, is better than a workplace that has no natural elements at all. Landscape artwork or photographs, or even wallpaper that look like nature scenes, can all help boost employees’ mood and productivity. In particular, “views of the ocean” are one of the top five elements that employees want. Bring on the seascapes!

Keep these tips to get more out of your employees in mind if you’re looking for a new office space or co-working space, or setting up a home office. No matter how small your work space is, live plants on desks, nature photos on the wall and soothing natural colors can be used to help increase your energy and enthusiasm.
