Begonia Archives | OSERA

As beautiful as Begonia’s are, they are poisonous to our pets. Begonias are interesting and beautiful plants that many people want to keep as houseplants but if you have a dog or cat in your home that is liable to nibble on your foliage then you may want to reconsider keeping a Begonia indoors.

A Crocodile Fern is a member of the Fern family that originates from Australia. It gets its name from the scale like patterns found on its foliage.

Ferns Archives | OSERA

Like all ferns, Ostrich ferns are plants that will spread fast. Ferns will hit the spring time and burst into action, they will grow quickly and they will also spread relatively quickly as well. Of course this doesn’t happen overnight but do be aware of your ferns spreading.

Houseplant tips Archives | OSERA

Humidity meters (or hygrometers) are devices used to record the levels of moisture in the air to give you a humidity reading. They are very common in industrial settings but are becoming more and more popular in people’s homes as they begin to keep houseplants.

Houseplants Archives | OSERA

Peperomia don’t just have the benefit of being a quirky little houseplant, they also clean the air. This is a bigger plus than you might realise as not all houseplants have air purifying qualities. So to find a houseplant that cleans the air yet is still aesthetically appealing and has its own unique look is something exciting that we look for in a houseplant.

Ostrich Fern Archives | OSERA

Prayer Plant Archives | OSERA

The duration of a Prayer plant all depends on how you care for it. Which means the answer to this question could be a couple of months of indefinitely. If you are unable to care for your Prayer Plant and provide it with the conditions it needs to grow then it will only last a few months or maybe a year.

Watermelon Peperomia Archives | OSERA

Watermelon Peperomia are a plants that like it a bit more on the humid side. This plant originates from South America and would be found in slightly more humid conditions so in order for your plant to thrive you want to try and recreate these conditions in terms of light, temperature and of course humidifier.

Western Sword Fern Archives | OSERA

Western Sword Ferns like the majority of ferns will spread if they are placed in the right growing conditions and left to their own devices. For some people this is fantastic news but for others they see this as a problem, especially if the plants take over other flora in the area.
