GREEN UP YOUR GAFF

RIGHT PLANTS FOR THE RIGHT ROOM: BASEMENT GAFF

7th September 2018

Words by Jessica Peace

If you know the pleasure of living in a basement, you’ll know that it’s not sunny down here EVER - and it’s never without a bit of damp either, laaavly. Here’s how to plant up, up the style and open up those airways in your basement gaffs.

So, who's on the guestlist for the basement?

Ivy

Peace Lily

ZZ Plant

Cheese Plant

Boston Fern

BASEMENT BENEFITS

Ivy not only looks wicked but absorbs the damp from your basements, think nature’s dehumidifier.

The ZZ Plant and the Peace Lily were born for darkness. Keep it dark and dingy and the Peace Lily will constantly give you its massive white flowers (actually a leaf adaptation - one for the geeks).

BIT OF COLOUR THERAPY

White, is made of ALL the colours. Staring at that big glossy Peace Lily flower will promote pureness (never too late) and give you a load of clarity.
