Staying healthy often involves surrounding yourself with other healthy living things, including plants inside your home.
Appearing on “Fox & Friends Weekend” Saturday morning, Mickey and Vickey Popat — a husband-and-wife entrepreneurial team — shared tips on some of this summer’s popular and healthy plants to have around the house.
Among the offerings: the super hass avocado tree.
RARE ORCHID FOUND IN VERMONT FOR THE FIRST TIME SINCE 1902
As the couple also note on PlantoGram, this avocado tree produces green fruit with “excellent flavor and oil content.”
Large avocados have a creamy texture and a “longer shelf life”.
“They can be grown indoors,” Mickey Popat said — “you don’t need a garden” to grow them into healthy plants, he said.
The plant also produces fruit quite easily, he said.

The couple also shared information about the kesar mango plant – which produces “one of the rarest and best mangoes”, as they explain on their website.
These are known for the quality of the fruit as well as the color and taste of the mango pulp, as well as good shelf life.
They also talked about the olive tree – “one of the best houseplants” to have.
“These can be grown in a container” and can “beautify the interior of any home”.

The couple also shared clever tips for repotting plants inside the house.
They shared ideas on container size, the importance of good drainage – and how rocks and pebbles can help plants drain well too.
“Would you mind wrapping up” the land around the plant, the Popats said.
As the couple’s website, PlantOGgram.com, explains, “We wanted to create a gift that would spark all the emotions, leave a legacy of stories, [be] good for our environment and [be] especially sustainable.”
They offer over 200 types of fruit trees.
They started PlantOGgram.com “as a garden hobby” and it is “now our life’s creation”.
They offer more than 200 types of fruit trees “which we have made available through our online store and shipped worldwide.”
“It’s a gift”, they say, which “will have a big impact when it arrives”.
