From the comments, some of you are enjoying this series. I’m doing a part 3 and ending this series here for the time being. The article I have been using is from Lifehack, which I will link at the end of this post. Doing these posts gave me a better understanding of why my mum loves her plants so much.

Rosemary

Some use it in cooking as a spice, but you either like it or not with no in-betweens since it’s a unique taste. Not only that, rosemary has been used in folk medicine for centuries.

Benefits are:

  • Used as a memory boost
  • Its scent can help concentration (as shown in a study done by Northumbria University)

Care Plan:

  • It needs lots of sunlight
  • Watered during the growing season
  • Limit watering during Winter
  • It needs to be trimmed after it flowers

Peace Lily

Here in Malta, you tend to find Peace Lilies in churches; however, this flower has pollen that may trigger asthma. From my experience, there were times where I had to leave mass because I had an asthma attack.

Benefit is:

  • A good air pollutant removal.

Care Plan:

  • It can be planted in all-purpose soil.
  • The soil needs to stay moist all year

Note:

They do well in low or bright light, but they thrive in the sun.

When I saw this plant, my mind went to a Christmas tree, but oh well, I guess I was wrong.

Benefits are:

  • It is a natural humidifier
  • It might help with dry skin when positioned close to the air-conditioner

Care Plan:

  • They like indirect sunlight
  • They need to be checked daily; their soil needs to stay moist

I guess it’s time to wrap this series up for the time being. I’m curious, what plant or flower is your favourite? I love wildflowers because I connect them with fond childhood snaps.
