Flower Power

I love nature so I always try to take some time to get in touch with it. Sadly, that´s not always my reality, so one of the things I do is to have flowers around. I usually buy white lilies at my local market. They release an intense nice smell that disperse throughout my room but any flower will do, even a single one. Flowers are known to help reduce stress and bring harmony. And hey, don´t feel silly buying flowers if you´re dude... girls like men that are not afraid of what people say.
Hydrangea a.k.a. Hortensia is one of my favorite flowers... an interesting fact is that the flower´s color will vary depending on the pH of the soil (whether is more acidic or more alkalic).

  1. Flowers would be a pretty good odor cleanser and visual stimulus. I bought a plant once and even though I bought new soil, nutrient sticks, set it out in the sun every day, and watered it when needed it still died. Where did I go wrong?

  2. R1E4H3, did you talk to the plant? sometimes you need to talk to them, LOL.
    the truth is, all depends of the specie of plant. not all plants like direct sunlight, some will be ok just near a source of light.

  3. I like flowers, but I'm more of a plant-that-lives kind of guy. I've got a couple of plants that flower each year and I love having them in the house when they are.
