Boost your wellbeing with a cosy plant corner

Just like our phones, we also need moments to recharge. A moment of relaxation, free from distractions around us. A great way to do this is by creating a cozy plant corner in your home. This has multiple benefits, from improving air quality indoors to reducing stress. Curious about such a plant corner? In this article, you’ll find a few tips to create one!


Boost your wellbeing with a cosy plant corner

The idea of a plant corner is simple: it’s a specially reserved space in the house where you can place a collection of plants. This can range from a small corner on a windowsill to an entire room dedicated to greenery. Whatever you choose, the intention is to create a calm, inviting environment where you can escape the hustle and bustle of daily life.

How to create a plant corner

Start by choosing several different types of plants. Consider their size (the bigger, the better!) and mix and match with different leaf shapes. Don’t hold back; you can really have a lot of plants to make sure you’re surrounded by greenery. You can even create a room divider from indoor trees, allowing you to sit secluded from the rest of the space.

Also, ensure there’s a comfortable chair or sofa where you can relax. Then all you need is a book and a cup of tea, and your moment to recharge is here!

How to help your orchid rebloom in the spring

Did you know that an orchid doesn’t just bloom once, but many times? You can enjoy this plant for years to come! Spring is the perfect time to give an orchid a fresh start. With more sunlight and rising temperatures, orchids often sprout new buds. In this article, we provide you with a few tips to help your orchid rebloom in the spring!


How to help your orchid rebloom in the spring

Once your orchid has finished blooming, it may take some time before it blooms again. However, it is worth the wait because when this plant blooms, you can enjoy it for several weeks – sometimes even months! When an orchid begins to grow again, there are a few things you can do to help it along:

  • Place the orchid in a bright spot, but not in direct sunlight. Orchids need adequate light to bloom; insufficient light may result in few or no flowers.
  • Orchids don’t like drafts. While some fresh air is beneficial, be cautious with frequently open windows and doors.
  • Support new stems with a stake. New stems are often heavy and quite fragile, so they can benefit from additional support. And those stakes with clips in the plant pot are there for a reason!
  • Water your orchid once or twice a week. Preferably, do this by placing it in a container of water for about 5-10 minutes, allowing the roots to absorb the water.
  • Enhance your orchid’s radiance by giving it a bit of extra orchid fertilizer. Note: regular plant fertilizer is too strong for an orchid, so only use special orchid fertilizer!
  • Increase humidity by occasionally misting the orchid’s leaves with a plant mister.
  • The ideal room temperature for an orchid is between 20 and 22°C.

From bathroom to spa

Take a morning to transform your bathroom into a spa. Fill up the tub, use your favourite bath salts, play some soothing music, light some candles, and place a few orchids around – if they weren’t there already. Studies in recent years have shown that people experience less tension when they look at plants. Perfect for your home spa! And with their spectacular blooms, they bring colour, elegance, and an exotic touch to the bathroom. Additionally, orchids thrive in bathrooms due to the high humidity. Most orchid species originate from tropical rainforests, so they appreciate the moist environment. Just make sure there’s enough natural light coming into the bathroom.

Caring for your orchids

After pampering yourself in your home spa, it’s time to focus on your orchids! Remove dead leaves, dust off the green leaves so they can absorb enough sunlight again and water your orchid. By caring for your plants with full attention, you can momentarily forget about everything else. Your orchids will be grateful, and they’ll show it by growing even more beautifully. Altogether, this will make you feel better too!

The importance of a green workspace

A green workspace offers numerous advantages, not just in terms of aesthetics but also in terms of productivity. Plants have the ability to enhance productivity, stimulate creativity, and positively impact well-being. If those aren’t compelling reasons for an office makeover with plants, then what are? Well, we have a few more.

The importance of a green workspace

Adding greenery to your workspace yields immediate positive effects. Some plants, in fact, help improve air quality by absorbing harmful substances and releasing oxygen. This can alleviate headaches, fatigue, and respiratory irritation.



Moreover, gazing at greenery has a calming effect and can contribute to stress reduction. Studies have demonstrated that employees in a green environment generally feel happier and more content.



Orchids are ideal for a workspace because they are easy to care for and long-lasting. With minimal effort, you can enjoy them for years!

An important step in keeping your orchid in bloom for as long as possible is watering. Remove the orchid from its decorative pot and place it in a container of water for 5 – 10 minutes, allowing the roots to absorb the water. Remove the orchid, let it drain, and then place it back in the decorative pot. Ideally, do this once a week.



And hey, look at the difference orchids can make in a workspace. In addition to all the aforementioned benefits, plants add ambiance and inject colour into a space.

DIY Terrarium with mini orchid

Just a little more wait, and spring will be upon us. Can’t wait any longer? Bring spring into your home! For example, with this terrarium with a mini orchid. It’s very easy to make on your own, yet it looks spectacular. And with the colourful hues, you’ll surely get a bit of spring fever! Read on to find out what you need and how to get started.

DIY Terrarium with mini orchid


To create a terrarium with a mini orchid, you’ll need the following:

  • Large glass jar
  • Hydrogranules
  • Bark potting soil
  • Mini orchid
  • Other small green plants of your choice
  • Moss


Got everything you need? Then let’s get started! Start with a layer of hydrogranules at the bottom of the glass jar. This ensures proper water management. The granules absorb moisture and release it gradually, allowing the plants to receive the right amount of water over an extended period. On top of this, add a layer of bark potting soil. This type of soil is specifically developed for orchids and is much lighter than regular potting soil. Next, it’s time to plant the mini orchid and green plants. Place the mini orchid in the centre as the focal point, with the green plants surrounding it. Finally, distribute some moss over the soil.

The Curved Lines trend revolves around round shapes. Think of the round and oval dining tables that we saw a lot of in 2023. In 2024, we’re taking it a step further with even more organic shapes. Imagine a table with a top in various winding forms that seamlessly flow into the legs. Or a curved sofa, a rug in shapes other than straight lines, or start small with a plant pot in organic forms, housing an orchid in a natural hue.

The Soft Seventies trend takes us back to the Seventies, a vibrant decade where fabrics and patterns were all about going wild. In 2024, we leave behind the busy prints and instead embrace velvet fabrics, vertical wooden slats, large and comfortable furniture pieces, and funky shapes that add a twist to your interior. The colour palette consists of greens like olive, shades of purple, and caramel. A colour combination that you can easily bring into your home with orchids!
