Scarlet Star Bromeliads are common houseplants because they are quite easy to take care of and also easily adapt to their surroundings. They also bring a whole lotta color with them! While the bloom starts off green, it will eventually turn red, yellow, or orange, depending on what color the final bloom will be. Read more care tips for the Scarlet Star Bromeliad here.

Although relatively easy to care for, the Hanging Wandering Jew will need a lot of light in order to truly thrive so make sure you have a space in your home that can provide its needs. Other than that, though, it’s such a pretty plant with purple leaves that hang down for extra drama. And if you’re an ARMY like me, then purple plants should definitely be on your list of plants to buy, as well. 😉 Read more care tips for the Hanging Wandering Jew here.

If you’re having trouble figuring out where to buy these pretty plants or even get them delivered straight to your home, one of my go-to plant shops ever since I started my plant journey has been Unbeleafable. They consistently provide healthy and gorgeous plants – and I haven’t been let down by them within the x number of times I’ve ordered from them (I’ve lost count ehe).

Plus, they’re super friendly and their customer service is on point, always willing to listen and help whenever they can – and quickly, too (a must for praning plantitos and plantitas like me). They also always have great buy-1-take-1 deals that you won’t want to miss out on to get the most bang for your buck. You’ll even get to share them with your loved ones to get them to join the plant life. Check them out:
