Spring Plant Wishlist & DIY Ideas

February has been unseasonably warm and non-rainy for Portland, so I’ve got plants on my mind a little earlier than normal this year. Since it’s still too soon to really get into the outdoor gardening (it might snow next week!), I’ll just concentrate on houseplants for now. Did you know that your indoor plants can really benefit from spring cleaning? Last year I wrote a plant spring-cleaning guide to help you get your plants ready to take advantage of the growing light. If any of your leafy friends need new pots, I found some cute ones to buy or DIY.

Love this use of pegboards to display hanging plants by Oh Joy.

I’m dying to make these cool cube wall planters from Craftifair (unless you speak German, you’ll probably need Google translate for this one).

These concrete and gold leaf planters are still one of my favorite projects I’ve made.

These diamond-shaped hanging planters by Deuce Cities Henhouse would be a fun weekend project.

This one requires some wood-working skills, but if you’re ready to tackle something more complicated, you can build this A-frame ladder plant stand. Just imagine how many plants you could fit on that!

P.S. Think you’ve got a black thumb? I wrote this guide on how not to kill your houseplants for you! If you’re like, “Pshaw, I know how to keep my plants alive,” maybe you want some tips on how to multiply your plants (aka propagate them).
