TOP 5 PLANTS FOR BOTANICAL ARRANGEMENTS:
Aloes are trendy succulent greens that vary in size and shape. They come in a range of tones from blue, green, grey, purple to red. As a species, they are relatively easy, carefree plants. Go aloes!
Nearly all eucalyptus are evergreen, making them one of the most popular foliages used by florists. The leaves tend to be quite rigid, making them easy to arrange and they have a pleasant fragrance too.
Ferns add freshness to any indoor decor. They don’t need strong light or constant watering, making them easy to care for, but avoid placing them in direct sunlight as their leaves can look burned and dried out.
The monstera leaf is a bit of celebrity on the minimalist decor scene these days, and like all good celebs, it has a pseudo name. Its also known as the swiss cheese plant because of the large ribbons or holes in its leaves. Gentle sunlight is ideal. Like ferns, direct sunlight needs to be avoided. And if the size is good, just one leaf will do.
Last but most certainly not least, one that you might be using sooner than you think – fir trees, aka Christmas trees! Yes, you can shove the branch of a fir tree in a mason jar and call it Christmas. Watch this space for more on that in the coming weeks.
