Cymbidium Sarah Jean or 'Ice Cascade' This hearty plant dispels the idea that orchids are only for skilled gardeners. The cascading white flowers will generally bloom from December to February and will look best in a hanging pot. OMG MUST GET!!!!
Easy House Plants: Haworthias “I like all Haworthias,” says Zimmerman of these succulents, which typically grow in small, solitary rosettes. “These are a good alternative to cacti and can also take slightly less light.” Sprout uses a succulent soil of crushed rock and sand that’s designed to dry out as fast as it can. (Regular potting mix acts like a sponge and can cause root rot.)
Nerve Plant “These are like peace lilies—they will droop if they get too dry, and will pop up when you water them,” says Zimmerman, “as long as you don’t do this too much or reach the PWP—Permanent Wilting Point.” Keep under bright, indirect light. Best Indoor Plants - iVillage - StumbleUpon
