If you’ve followed me for very long then you know that I’m a huge fan of adding plants in my home. They add so much interest and variety to my spaces and, really, they aren’t that hard to take care of. Today’s podcast, Plant Care 101, is such a fun podcast for me because I get to talk all about my favorite houseplants.
If you are new to the podcast, you can play catch-up on all the episodes on the Your Home Story Podcast page. Some of my favorite episodes are: Decorating with a Spouse, Vintage Shopping and All About Rugs.
Let’s get on to this week’s episode! It’s a good one. 😊
