The Easiest Method for Helping Indoor Plants Survive

Real plants in your home can add so much. I’ve gotten to the place where I forage through my yard for the fresh greens to make pretty arrangements, but I’m also adding some live plants.

I went to Lowe’s recently to look at succulents, and while I was there, I found a beautiful little fern that had a little wick at the bottom of its pot. That wick is how the plant gets its water! You place the plant into a reservoir with water in it. As the wick sits in the water, the plant will draw up as much water as it needs! This eliminates the fear of over or under-watering!

This system is perfect for anyone who wants to make having live plants easier. It’s also perfect for caring for your plants while on vacation. You can purchase these plants all ready for you with the wick system in place (my little plant was $5). You can also purchase the wick and add it to all your house plants!

This is $3.99 on Amazon and has 30 feet of wick! That would take care of a LOT of plants!

I put the mirror behind the plant to double the visual impact of this fern on my bedside table.

Silk ferns and ivy will NEVER find their way back into my house after finding these beauties!

Refresh your greenery in your home with some real greenery…even if you don’t have a green thumb! The wick system takes all the guess work out of growing plants!

Have you ever heard of the Wick Plants? Does this make you think you could have a live plant in your home and not kill it?!

Walk closely to Christ. Give Him your cares and have a lovely weekend.

  1. A couple of years ago I started gradually replacing my artificial plants with live ones. My problem in years before was forgetting to water them, but a friend told me to do “Water Wednesday” (but I do Fridays) so I’d always remember the day set aside for watering. This helped a lot! But then I also happened upon those wick plants at Lowe’s this summer and that’s been another game changer! I love how it works!! So much easier.
    Now my only remaining plant problem is to figure out how to keep my cat out of them, so if you have any handy tips for that, send them my way! For now, all my plants are kept up high. 🪴 🐈


    1. Watering on the same day of the week is a brilliant idea! I have an asparagus fern that has really struggled and I am so excited about getting a wick to put into it! I pray this solves my problem!
      I’ve never had my cat get into my plants! I think your idea of putting them up high is probably the best solution!

  2. This is brilliant – such a great suggestion! I want more real plants..but always feel I am wasting my money as I struggle to keep them watered correctly! I look forward to trying this system. Have a wonderful weekend!
