Sunday, September 25, 2011 Review and Giveaway $50 Gift Certificate

I love to have plants. Some people like flowers in their home but I am a plant person. I also suffer from allergies and I find that plants make the air cleaner and make the room feel more alive. I have purchased plants from many places. Some make it others do not. It really depends on the quality of plant you are buying. ProPlants has a wonderful variety to select from that any plant enthusiast or novice would love.

Some of the greatest house plants I have are ones I have received as a gift. I find I treasure them more, nurture them more and think of the person when I see the plant. It really does make a great gift. Of course some people may think they do not have time for plants but there are many indoor plants that require minimal care.

I have an Aloe Vera plant my sister and her husband gave to me when I was about 20 or so. That plant has moved with me each time we have moved, I always place it in the car to keep it safe. It flowers once a year, makes mini baby aloe veras that I transplant and brings me a great sense of joy and calmness when I see it each time I walk out the front door then am greeted by it on my return home. I am a big fan of Succulent plants and ProPlants has many great succulent potted variety gardens to select from.

Recently I read about and saw in my local plant nursery a Good Fortune Money Tree. I was excited to be able to review one of the trees for the home event. It arrived in a box with holes on it so the plant could breathe and it was in great shape. I love the look of it with the braided trunk of the tree, the feng shui of it and that in some Asian cultures it a good fortune symbol. I am excited to be able to care for it and watch it grow taller. It sits in my kitchen window sill and it greets me each day as I get up to make coffee. I am a very optimistic person so I love that its suppose to be a symbol of good fortune. So far so good, things have been getting better, can't say for certain its the tree but I like the positive vibes I get from my little tree!

There are many colorful plants, flowering plants, succulents, bonsai, bamboo and even a Zebra Plant that I would love to have! Another favorite of mine is the Herb Container Garden. It would be a wonderful way to grow herbs to use for cooking. Fresh basil does amazing things to pasta sauce and salads.
