Resting as I am on this dreary and listless afternoon with nary a thing on hand but a copy of the day’s newspaper, I sit and relax, read the important items of the day.
One thing good in today’s paper is that the economy has almost gone back to normal with deliveries in the export-import sector slowly going back to their usual pace.
Since we are gradually creeping back to our normal pace, I think it would be a good time for us to discuss how we are going to manage our resources.
The Garage, Your Garden
Imagine you are living in a townhouse and you want to put some decorations in it.
First thing that you have to do is survey the whole area.
The garage usually has space for a few plants. You can line them up along the wall.
For this you can either chose ornamental plants or you can pick any variety of a vegetable so that you may something to harvest later on.
You can also hang some ornamental plants like the English Ivy, or the Fiddle Leaf Fig, or Chinese Money Plant or any of the Philodendrons.
Perhaps you want some fun and fresh air so you can line it up with the Spider Plant, or with Tillandsia, Oxalis or Wood Sorrels or Weeping Fig.
A Garden Indoors
Inside your living room can look much brighter with some white Aloe Vera or some Fern or Nerve Plant or Purple Spiderwort lining the sides.
Or, you can hang some plants by your living room window.
Even your comfort room can smell a little nicer with some greens in it. The Purple Waffle plant or maybe the Asparagus Fern can go with it.
Your bedrooms would smell much nicer if you can put in some Spider Plant in it.
Or perhaps some Peace Lily would fill the air with brighter color or maybe some Jade Plant or any of the Bromeliads. Or you may want some of the Parlor palm.
There is a bit of science between these plants and you.
It is because we breathe air and expel carbon monoxide while plants do the opposite.
It is, therefore, advisable to keep a few plants in not only for the beauty but also for the health benefits.
