Bloom Where You’re Planted

Desert Vibes Boutique

Over the past year, “plant parent” has become yet another character trait by which many proudly associate. Maybe you’ve had a “green thumb” your whole life, or perhaps you acquired one over the past year. Regardless, plants are a foolproof, good-for-you way to bring light, energy and, of course, nature to your home – and they don’t have to stick outside! In fact, we’re advocates for bringing a garden into your home, study or workspace and allowing them to work their natural calming, inspiring and endorphin-inducing magic.

A bounty of pretty plants, flowers and even mini trees make their way to the Aventura Farmers Market at Aventura Mall every weekend. Here are a few of our favorites and the ways in which they may benefit you and your sacred space:

ORCHIDS

Xian Bamboo & Flowers

Aside from their undeniable majestic beauty, which instantly adds joy to a space, orchids are natural air purifiers that have been proven to improve air quality and produce oxygen even after the lights go out at night. This healthy flow of oxygen can result in a positive and relaxing effect for humans by lessening the risks of anxiety, panic attacks and insomnia. Beautiful and beneficial? Now you’re speaking our language.

SUCCULENTS

Desert Vibes Boutique

If you find yourself desert dreaming (and are a first-time plant parent with a tendency to forget to water your babies…), succulents are your golden, West Coast-inspired ticket. While some may have a prickly texture (lookin’ at you, little cacti!) they’ll make your home feel warm and welcoming without being overly needy. Bonus: like orchids, succulents emit oxygen at night, making them perfect plants for the bedroom.

Pro Tip: Our market vendors also sell adorable and artistic succulent holders that will add creativity and charm to your space.

DRACAENA GOLD STAR

Desert Vibes Boutique

Another easy-to-care-for beauty? The Dracaena Gold Star, which represents the peaceful energy of the forest and “allows the heart to be guided into the light.” Market vendor Desert Vibes Boutique says, “she represents hope, good fortune and excellence.” This stunner deserves the spotlight – plant her in your main living area so she can rub off on all who walk through your door.

MONSTERA

Sole Plants

Known as the “Swiss cheese plant” the Monstera is the house plant that has popped up all over our Instagram feeds. In fact, we may just call it an influencer. Known for purifying the air, it’s a happy, bright green – and, dare we say, chic – addition to just about any room.

POTHOS

Sole Plants

Another popular plant taking over homes and social media is the Pothos. Pothos plants are arguably one of the easiest plants to grow; they actually thrive on low light and neglect (so close the blinds and binge-watch Netflix without guilt!) These plants serve to purify the air of harmful chemicals while also helping eliminate odors. Bonus: they’ve been rumored to help alleviate eye irritation after long days of staring at screens, making them a great option for students and those who work on computers most of the day.

ROSES

Emotion Growers

You know them; you love them. Roses are a timeless flower that evoke beauty and emotional depth – and we aren’t just talking the romantic kind! In fact, different colored roses represent different feelings. For example, red symbolizes love and passion, pink symbolizes warmth and positivity and orange evokes energy and enthusiasm.

Pro Tip: We love the idea of gifting a college-bound student Difloralina’s “free spirit” roses (pictured below), which transmit messages of support and happiness.

Difloralina

EUCALYPTUS

Sole Plants

It’s the self-care tip that took the internet by storm: hang a eucalyptus plant in your shower for a soothingly steamy, spa-like bath that will awaken the senses, help you breathe deep and relieve tension. Or, for a Zen environment, set some by your bed – eucalyptus is famous for its anti-insomnia benefits!
