Day 864's idea for indoor plants
I haven't quite figured out the whole indoor plant thing. I think I should have them. I think. I've killed a couple, and have yet to make one look quite right. The idea of massing them together is intriguing, thought not entirely practical in a room that gets a lot of use.
Deborah Needleman's take (featured in Lonny, at the top) is kind of wily, with plenty of plants in all shapes and textures. Martha's version is -- no surprise -- more orderly, featuring only different varieties of cactus. In both cases, the plants are united with terra cotta pots. So maybe not a great idea if you need a place to set down a cup of coffee, but pretty to look at? Definitely, yes.
