    How easy are they to care for? I don’t have a green thumb at all lol. In fact, I’m struggling to keep my Ivy alive ?

    I am going to have to try some of these. I love fresh plants although I cant seem to always keep them alive so well. Bonsai tree is probably what I will try first

    Very interesting. The only house plant we have is aloe plants. Useful for cuts and scrapes which is pretty common in a house with 4 kids!
