" Welcome to Your New Home!"
Here's a closing gift I enjoy giving my clients as an expression of my appreciation. (see photo)
Iit will stay around and remind them of how much I care about them. Plants are special that way. I want a plant I give as a closing gift to stay healthy and around, so I usually include an "owner's manual" on the care and feeding of plants.
I call it The Unofficial Owner's Manual on the Life and Breath of Plants. And my Unofficial Owner's Manual is an odd mix of fact and hearsay with best wishes for long term survival in mind. I talk about how plants are eco-friendly. They "exhale" oxygen and "inhale" CO2 resulting in a wonderful and noticeable filtering of indoor air.
In fact, it has crossed my mind that plants are kind of like the particular members of your family ...those who feel an atrraction to consistency...
they, the kids, the grandkids and maybe even your husband or wife just ARE that way... they want things to be organized. So a consistent feeding and watering schedule, consistent light, and consistent temperature will be much appreciated. I guess most living creatures enjoy a stable environment. That's the understanding behind sustainability.
Choices that make room for everyone and all to take advantage of what life has to offer. .Just like the rest of us, the green-leafed buddies at home also will flourish with a little extra TLC,for example-LIGHT!. bright filtered light. Did you know that most anti-air-toxin plants prefer this light. That's not to say that they won't survive in low interior light, but if you are, like me, interested in a healthy, longrterm relationship, a sustainable one,
you need to pay attention to such factors.
One final thought: Potted plants really need to be re-potted every 2 or-3 years. I think that actually this perks up their spirits. Maybe home buyers could take a clue from plants and move every so often ...a "good-thing" ?? Let me know what you think.
