Your RV home away from home will feel that much more cozy when you add the comfort of house plants to your decor. There are plenty of hearty varieties that can travel along with you as you explore. There are just a few unique considerations to keep in mind when deciding what kind of plants to have in your RV.
The actual specific plants will vary based on your needs and situations, but there are various factors that might make your decisions and determinations easier.
For starters, always keep in mind space. Any plants you put in your RV should be small in size, since every square inch matters in such a vehicle. For that matter, they should be easy to move around not only so you can keep them out of the way in the vehicle but also move them back into your primary home when not on the road.
Durability is also critical. Something that can withstand sliding around is good, particularly if you have to slam on the brakes on the highway and things fall to the floor. Weather conditions and humidity can change dramatically when you travel from one area of the country to another so be sure to read about these factors for the plants you are considering.
Ease of care is next on your list of factors to look for. When you’re on vacation, you don’t want to spend a lot of time caring for your plants. Something like a small cactus doesn’t require much attention but can have a dehumidifying effect on the cabin.
On top of decor, you might also want to consider the use of the plant in question. A portable herb garden might mean fresh seasonings while on the road! You can find herb garden starter kits easily these days and you’ll have salad seasonings before you know it.
