The pandemic has sparked an ongoing plant craze among locals. As more people are pushed to stay at home due to the Movement Control Order (MCO), more are turning to mother nature to bring positivity into their homes.
The increase of plant parents is especially obvious on social media. Every day, you see excited beginner plant parents raving about their newest babies or veteran plant owners sharing their foolproof care tips.
Whether you’re an aspiring plant owner or you already have 50 plant babies at home, there is nothing wrong with adding another plant or two in your home! From purifying the air in your home to health benefits, there is no doubt plants are also one of the easiest ways to spruce up a home.
So, if you’re thinking of adopting some green children into your home, consider getting them from a local nursery. Not only are you supporting a local business during these trying times, but plants from nurseries are also less expensive and healthier as they’re raised by expert gardeners.
