green thumb

There's nothing more satisfying than a few hours out in the sunshine, getting your hands dirty in the soil and seeing the fruits of your labor (sometimes literally!) sprout up. It's that time of year again when I want to do nothing but putz around in the backyard (or kitchen for city dwellers) potting an assortment of herbs and veggies.

However, I was not blessed with the greenest of thumbs, so I'm always on the lookout for low-maintenance ways to give my home a little burst of green. Here are a few new ideas I can't wait to try out.

1. Kokedama (Japanese moss balls) are so unique and would add an original touch to any room. Check out the Design*Sponge tutorial for instructions for making your own.

2. Dried Billy Buttons brighten up a room the same way a pot of flowers do, but are zero maintenance, which means they're safe for those of us without green thumbs.

3. Air plants (Tillasandria) are my new favorite household companions. They are so easy to care for. No soil, indirect sunlight and they only need a good soak once a week. Get this adorable air plant/sea urchin combo right over here.
