For stay-at-home mum Jessy Christopher-Tham, plants are both a passion and a part of daily life. Tham's spacious and cozy condo is proof of this, where foliage peeps out of unexpected places and blends in beautifully with the surroundings. Inspired by the plentiful natural light in her home and by plant-filled interiors on Pinterest, Tham began experimenting with succulents and indoor plants when she first started filling up her 600sf balcony.
Today, her botanical exploits are faithfully documented on Instagram, where she also shares useful advice – anything from caring for indoor plants to capturing great plant photos. Looking for ways to incorporate more greenery in your own home while in lockdown? Follow these simple tips to get started.
Starting with easy plants
"Sansevieria, pothos, scindapsus, monstera and philodendron are a few easy plants you can start with," shares Tham. "The Monstera species has always been one of my favourites. It can instantly liven up a space because of its large foliage and it gives you those tropical vibes."
On top of doing a little research for yourself about the plants that will be under your care, resolve to dedicate time for your plants, growing the ones you have before stocking up on more.
