Updates on a Budget

Stroll down to your local farmer’s market and pick up some fresh flowers. Adding blooms to a space is one of the quickest ways to transform the atmosphere. To keep them forever, dry out your flowers by hanging them upside down in a closet with little to no light. Once they’re dry, you can put them in a vase or tie them up with twine and hang them on the wall. Here are some more great tips from Urban Stems on how to care for your dried bouquet.

Turn your house into a propagation nation. You’ve probably heard the word “propagate'' thrown around on plant TikTok, but if you are still unsure of the word’s meaning (or have no idea what plant TikTok is) we’ll clear it up: When you propagate a plant, you use clippings of a parent plant to create more smaller plants. It’s an easy and free way to turn your apartment into a green oasis.

Pothos are some of the easiest plants to propagate, just make sure your clipping has several nodes on it since those will become the plant’s roots. Simply, pop it in a glass with enough water to submerge the nodes and watch your clipping grow. Once the roots are 1.5 to 2 inches long, you can plant them in their own pot! To read more, Apartment Therapy has a great guide to easy propagation.
