Climbing fig

This plant is bursting with (green) energy! Whether you let it grow from a hanging basket or let it climb up via the wall, it will certainly create an impressive look. The heart-shaped leaves of the plant often have beautiful markings. In China, they believe that the white edges of the leaves are the good green spirit of the plant, which makes sure to erase negative energy. In short: it’s a keeper!


Tillandsia – simply known as air plants – are often believed to live on air alone. However, that’s not true! Tillandsia need water, from which they absorb nutrients through their leaves. When you keep air plants in your bathroom, you wouldn’t have to water it regularly, as it absorbs humidity from the air. When they do need some extra water, they will let you know by curling their leaves.
