Transitioning into life on the road can be difficult, but it’s not time to move back into your brick-and-mortar home yet. A few simple additions to your RV’s interior — such as a variety of herbs and house plants — can make the transition easier and even purify the air inside your vehicle.
Plant an Herb Garden
The dashboard and window areas of your RV are perfect for growing herbs that you can enjoy as decorations as well as fresh seasonings for your meals. You almost can’t go wrong with the variety of herbs you choose to grow in your RV — simply group them together by their stem type. Woody stemmed herbs like thyme and rosemary grow well together while fleshy-stemmed herbs like cilantro and basil pair nicely.
Brighten Your RV with House Plants
Nearly any plant that can live in your house can thrive in your RV as well. If you plan to stay at one campground for a while, ferns can be hung from your RV’s awning, and they add a great residential feel to your home on wheels. Most other house plants like aloe, Christmas cactus, and even orchids will tolerate life on the road and add moisture to the air, which can be very beneficial in dry RV interiors.
Store Plants While Traveling
Although you won’t have to worry about the survival of your house plants while your vehicle is stationary, life on the road may be a bit more difficult for them. Storing you house plants in the bathtub or shower while you’re traveling makes for a simple and easy-to-clean solution to plants tipping over whenever you hit potholes or speed bumps. Cover the soil with a plastic bag and tie it in place at the stem of the plant to contain the soil if they should fall in the tub.
