Did you know that the location of a favorite plant might impact its growth? And, that keeping an aloe plant in your bedroom may help you sleep better? Come and learn how to add plants to your home to increase the flow of positive energy, or, as it is often termed, plant life force. Jennifer will cover indoor herbs and their uses, how to take care of indoor plants, how to incorporate them into interiors, their meaning and ideas on adding flowers to the home.
