A beautiful houseplant brings a breath of fresh air to any space. If your nursery is large, a dramatic potted plant can make the perfect statement. Short on space? Try placing colorful cacti or tiny terrariums of succulents onto shelves and other out-of-the-way places, or use them to create a living wall or mobile. Hanging plants are another excellent option and have the added benefit of being too high for curious hands to reach.
Some plants—even common houseplants—can be harmful if ingested by children or pets. Before you buy any plant for your nursery, do your homework and make sure it’s safe.Continue to 4 of 12 below.
