House Plant Tour: Favorite Indoor Plants, Spring Garden Highlights, & Natural Fertilizer Ideas
House plants are a great way to bring a bit of nature into your home. They can help to purify the air, add a touch of greenery to your living space, and even provide a bit of stress relief. Whether you’re a beginner or an experienced gardener, there’s something for everyone when it comes to house plants. In this article, we’ll take a tour of some of the most popular house plants, discuss spring garden highlights, and provide some natural fertilizer ideas.
Indoor Plants for Beginners
If you’re just getting started with house plants, there are a few varieties that are particularly easy to care for. The spider plant (Chlorophytum comosum) is a great choice for beginners. It’s a low-maintenance plant that can tolerate a wide range of light conditions and doesn’t require much water. The snake plant (Sansevieria trifasciata) is another great option for beginners. It’s a hardy plant that can tolerate low light and infrequent watering.
Indoor Plants for Experienced Gardeners
If you’re an experienced gardener, you may want to try some of the more challenging house plants. The orchid (Orchidaceae) is a beautiful and exotic plant that requires a bit of extra care. It needs bright, indirect light and regular watering. The bromeliad (Bromeliaceae) is another great choice for experienced gardeners. It’s a tropical plant that needs bright, indirect light and regular misting.
Spring Garden Highlights
Spring is a great time to get outside and enjoy the garden. There are a few plants that are particularly well-suited for the spring season. The tulip (Tulipa) is a classic spring flower that comes in a variety of colors and sizes. The daffodil (Narcissus) is another popular spring flower that’s easy to grow and comes in a variety of colors. The hyacinth (Hyacinthus) is a fragrant spring flower that comes in a variety of colors.
Natural Fertilizer Ideas
If you’re looking for a natural way to fertilize your house plants, there are a few options to consider. Compost is a great way to provide your plants with the nutrients they need. You can make your own compost using kitchen scraps and yard waste. Another option is to use worm castings, which are the waste products of worms. Worm castings are a great source of nutrients for your plants. Finally, you can use fish emulsion, which is a liquid fertilizer made from fish waste.

Hi Allison where is your jumpsuit from
H! How do you drain the excess water? That’s always my concern with indoor plants.
Hi Allison, just a little something that might help the palm in your living room- you can make your own inexpensive grow light to hang from the ceiling above the plant. I have a bird of paradise in a corner with no light and I just use a grow bulb with a pendant lamp cord from Amazon and then use an upside-down basket as a shade. I definitely live by “if there is a will there is a way” 😅
Hey Allison, I am so, happy for this video because I have two croton plants. One is totally happy and the other one doesn't look good its losing its leaves.
Wonderful video sharing your passion for plants and gardening outside just love what you've done with the plants it's amazing happy 😊 gardening 🏠🏡🏜
Omg you have no idea how much I love this video. Plant tour!! ❤
Such lovely plants! Indoor and out! 🙂
I have always wanted to get the swiss cheese but was not sure how easy they were to grow. I live in the NE so I just started my tomato plant inside along with some flowers. So thankful for all you knowledge Allison! ☀️☀️💖🌸🌺🌷
Allison you have a beautiful home, garden and personality. I enjoy your videos and thank you for sharing!
I'm glad for this video because I've been eyeing the monstera in your kitchen, now I know the name, it's beautiful. Enjoyed this video very much ❤

Thank you for sharing 💞
Your plants are beautiful and add such beauty to your home. Thanks for sharing your plant tips ❤
Absolutely love your home, your personality and style💛 So beautiful! Thank you for these videos Allison😊
I recently got some milkweed and I’m happy to report that I have some cocoons already! I have a question what are your recommended plants to attract butterflies? Also, did you plant your Zinnias from the seed?
Everything looks so beautiful…..you’ve got the touch!
Wary! Not weary 😄
Since I found you I have been obsessed with your videos. You bring happiness to my days. Thank you so much. 😘❤
Love a plant care day
I love buying potted tulips, daffodils & hyacinths for the house in spring. Once they are done I plant them in my bulb garden and get to enjoy them every spring for many years to come. Also cut some and bring indoors each spring.🌷😍🌷
Where do you get all of these babies?!
What’s the name of the pink flowers next to the carrot you harvested? Those are so pretty!!!
Your garden is gorgeous. Thank you for the link for the PINK watering can, I love it and ordered it. 🙂
Tulips are bulbs. Cut all the new growth off the bulbs. When the new growth dies. Let the bulbs air out for 3 or 4 days. They will develop a skin. Then store them away in the dark in paper not plastic. plant them again next year.
Hello beautiful! This was such a fun video, thank you for sharing ❤
Would I be able to request a video about Palmer and how you trained him to be behave calmly when you have guests over? I noticed he us not around when you host and I assume it is because he isn't anxious about visitors…. doesn't have to be very technical just a brief summary PLEASE ?
sending you a friendly hug from Canada 🇨🇦 🤗 💗
Love this video. I’m in my
Plant girl era. 😊 Next time you plant a propagated clipping can you show how you plant it and when you decide to put it in soil?!
Allison your plants are so beautiful and beautifully placed. My Monstera has had many propagations over the 30 yrs with me. It will shoot off, what I call tentacles, and I clip them to control the growth. I’m an RN, not an expert in plants, but that works for me. Thank you for all that you do.❤️
Is there a difference in the monstera by the kitchen and in your office? Mine looks more like the one in your office but it’s bigger. But I LOVE the one by the kitchen!
think it’s so special that your home is such a reflection of you Allison— full of life and vibrance! 🌸🌷🪴
Hi Allison! Your beautiful plant in your office is a variegated peperomia scandens. ( the one you were thinking was a heart leaf philo) It looks so healthy!
Fun fact…the autograph plant was named that bc you can write on the leaves ✨😉
I love your videos so much, you put so much effort and creativity in all that you do
Can I ask you a question
What paint color did you use for your walls
I love the bright white and whites can be tricky
Thanks for doing this video!
A beautiful fairy and her garden 🥰 it’s amazing to see you plan out exactly what you want to accomplish and then witness the evolution of it all, indoor and outdoor is stunning ! Love it🧚
I have also heard that rice water is great for your plants. When you go to rinse your rice save the second and third water and use to water your indoor plants.😊
I have alot of indoor plants also one that I really love is my fiddle leaf fig! They live alot of light , but I absolutely love it !
Your gardens are always so lovely and inspiring. They’re beautiful and they're something out of a vintage painting ❤
