Decorating with house plants:
Plants make beautiful additions to any room's decor. Here are a few
tips for decorating with plants you might find helpful.

the light weight furniture.
Grouping your plants for extra impact is a great look and an easy way
to fill up a corner. Make sure the plants in a group vary in height for
the most pleasing outcome. If you're using live plants, choose plants
that have similar lighting and watering requirements to make life
easier. Then you can keep them on the same watering schedule.
Don't place a seven foot or taller tree next to a short plant. An
easy-to-make platform for pots is a grouping of bricks covered with
coordinating fabric from the room.
If one of the plants isn't tall enough, place it on a brick or a flat
basket turned upside-down.
Choose plants heights and fullness based on the space and the height
of other elements in the room, such as windows, doors and so forth.
