Tips For Keeping Your Houseplants Alive

Owning an indoor plant is tough than it seems. Particular if you want to keep them alive. However, if you are not a gardening expert, then caring for a plant can be harder than it seems. Here are three quick tips for keeping your apartment plants alive.



Right amount of lighting: giving your plants the proper amount of light is huge. Different plants require different lighting situations. Some require lots of light, while others prefer dimly lit rooms. Figure out what type of lighting your living space has and then purchase the correct plant accordingly.

Clean your plants: just like anything else in your home, plants get dusty and need to be cleaned. Dust particles can block sunlight and cause your plants to wither.

Add humidity:  if the tips of your plant leaves are brown, your home is probably too dry. Try to add a bit of humidity by grouping plants together.

Planning activities. planning activities is a huge part of the weekend trip, as long as you don’t over plan. The key is to have fun, while leaving yourself with enough time to relax and remain stress free.


Not bringing snacks. being hungry and irritable is a surefire way to get stressed out and angry on a trip. Take a bag of snacks so you can have access to food whenever you need it.

3 of the Best Pets for Your Montebello Apartment Home

Somerset Apartments in Montebello CAAre you considering getting a pet for your apartments in Montebello, CA? Make sure to consider which pet will be most comfortable with the space and location of your apartment home. Here are a few things to consider when deciding which pet to bring home today.

Cats: One of the favored pets throughout the country, cats do not require as much attention as some other pets. Cute and cuddly (when they feel like it) cats are a great option if you are looking for an easy pet to keep you company throughout the day.

Dogs: Also a favorite pet, dogs do require a bit more attention, especially depending on the breed. Smaller dogs with less energy are a smarter choice than a busy and energetic large dog, depending on the space of your Montebello apartment home and the pet policy for your community.

Fish: Especially if you are low on space in your apartments in Montebello, CA, you might consider getting a fish for a pet. Fish are still entertaining and can even still help reduce your stress with their calming presence. Betta fish are a fairly common choice, or you can even opt for hermit crabs if you want something a little different.
