3 Reasons to Choose a Statement Plant

Are you looking for a great way to add some flair or create an impact in your home? Are you feeling adventurous and wanting to add to your urban jungle? Why not try a statement plant?! Adding a large tree, palm or other plant to your space can make a real impression and transform your environment. Here are 3 reasons why a statement plant is a great addition to your space: 


Easy Maintenance

Don’t let large plants intimidate you! Though they may seem like a lot of work, larger plants are actually easier to care for than small ones. There are several reasons for this, but the main reason is that they are more mature and established. It’s similar to the difference between taking care of a baby and taking care of an adult – babies, and little baby plants, need much more care and attention than a more fully grown adult, or adult plant. Mature plants have bigger root systems, more leaves and bigger stems, so they can withstand more stress than small plants. Larger plants also mean larger pots and more soil volume, which means that they dry out slower than plants with less soil to store water. And if you only have one, large statement plant in a room, that’s only one plant to care for! Try the Kentia Palm, our favorite easy maintenance palm! 

Visual Space Saver

A large plant may also seem intimidating for space reasons, but they can actually be a great option for small condos and apartments, and can fit in well with minimalist aesthetics! One large plant creates a focal point in a room, a visual focus that draws the eye to it right away. Filling your space with a bunch of small plants takes up space on shelves and counters, and can make a space appear cluttered. A statement plant takes up space in an unobtrusive way that is sleek and minimalistic. For a small condo try the Rhaphidophora Tetrasperma that will grow vertically, giving you the most impact without taking up too much space!

Upgrade Environment

Looking to upgrade your living space but don’t want to go to all the work of renovating or buying new furniture? Adding a statement plant is an easy way make a BIG impact by adding just one element! Especially for those of us who live in drab concrete condos and apartments, a large plant can add a much needed natural element, breathing life into your environment. It can be a great way of bringing a space together and making it feel homier and fresher without breaking the bank or knocking down any walls. Try the Fantail Palm for a warm tropical feeling.
