3 of the Best Plant Types For Your Apartment

Adding a plant into your apartment’s décor can add a nice pop of color and highlight your overall sense of décor. The trouble with plants is that most of us are not green thumbs and get confused about the best type to use. Here is a quick look at three great plants to use in your apartment.

Snake plants: this is the perfect plant for someone who is rarely home. The snake plant can survive in the near dark, requires little water, and purifies the air.

Ponytail palm: this plant needs consistent light but very little water. You can place it on a window sill and watch it thrive with little care.

Iron plant: this plant was given its name because of its capacity for neglect. The plant has Chinese origins and needs little water or light.

Take charge. doesn’t matter if you are male or female, take charge and plan the entire weekend without asking for permission. Going on a trip that is entirely planned can be a lot of fun and your partner will appreciate it.

 

Don’t plan everything. sure, go ahead and plan a few things, but don’t plan everything. The best romance can come from spontaneity, so leave room for something special to happen.

 

Be cheesy. its ok to be cheesy and over romantic during a weekend trip. Buy candles, roses to spread on the bed, and make a romantic play list.

 

What To Do With Family In Fullerton

Getting the kids out of the house this summer is the only way to keep them sane. Bored kids will only lead to a messy and crazy house. The best way to stay busy over the next few months is by overloading their schedule with fun activities. This week we have mini golf, the Fullerton Arboretum and Hiltscher Park (for jogging or walking) to try. Have fun and enjoy the summer with you family and friends.
