  1. I’d like to see more combinations of house plants. Instead of having 150 containers, I could have 40-50 that look even more lush and beautiful.

  2. How do you combine snake plant and peace Lily when the latter needs watering almost daily, and the snake plant only needs an occasional drink?

    • I thought the same thing about the polka dot plant with a succulent. I don’t think they have same needs.

    • The only viable way I could see this is that technically neither plant needs soil at all…. so in water…. but I can’t help but feel they’d have to compete too much at that point…

  3. a lot of these plants aren’t even compatible with each other. when picking plants for a planter arrangement try to pick plants that have the same needs. Like same water needs, soil, and lighting. while yes these are beautiful, they would only last a short time if they are not compatible.

  4. You can also keep each plant in an individual container and then put them together in their suggested combos in the large planter. Then you have the option of watering each plant as it needs. You can cover up any showing pot edges with moss or other covering.
