Terrain vs. Plant Killer

I got to attend the Design*Sponge Book Event at Terrain earlier this month.  It was so much fun to run into old and new friends, drink spiked cider and get a copy of Grace's beautiful book. My friend Olivia and I both had air plants on the mind on this trip.  Olivia is my plant guru and gardening expert, so I asked her to pick out one for me.  I'm hoping I don't kill it like I did the Baby Tears plant from last year.

I love houseplants.  The little shots of green add life to a home.  However, I need to remember to rein it in so I don't have the Amazon Rainforest going on in here.  Ten is usually my limit of smaller plants, but I think everyone has to find their own balance.

Luckily (for the ratio), I am pretty bad with succulents (I know, they're supposed to be hearty and impossible to kill), so this allows me to get new plants from time to time.

Speaking of new plants, I've never been the biggest fan of ferns, but this little guy caught my eye.  The leaves are a different shape than others I've found and the structure is so cool.

I was even inspired to do a little watercolor.  In hindsight, it may be good to document it before I possibly kill this one too.

What are your thoughts on houseplants.  Do you love them or hate them?
