Newport Beach, Calif. (February 21, 2018)Trumark Homes, the national award-winning California homebuilder, has announced the complete sellout of its Tribella community in Santa Ana, California. Featuring three neighborhoods – Modern, Classic and Market – Trumark has witnessed a significant demand for homes offered at approachable price points in one of Orange County’s fastest growing markets, with Tribella experiencing an unprecedented sales pace.

“The success we’ve experienced at Tribella is a testament to the popularity for versatile home products situated within a top-rated location,” said Richard Douglass, Southern California Division President of Trumark Homes. “When we identified the family friendly and transit-oriented location for this project, we saw the exciting potential this neighborhood held and with Orange County’s suburban market consistently growing, we knew that Tribella would satisfy the demand for much-needed new housing inventory in the area.”

Selling over 100 homes within the year, Tribella represents a high-demand product in the Orange County marketplace. The eight-acre Tribella site is part of Santa Ana’s Harbor City Place plan and offered Trumark Homes an opportunity to develop a unique mixed-use development that includes a blend of street-facing commercial spaces with mixed-use townhomes and single family detached homes nestled within a gated community. With the majority of the existing homes in the area dating back to the 1950s, Tribella introduced 110 newly  constructed homes to a market where young families are attracted to the top-rated Garden Grove public school system.

Priced from the low $600,000s, the three neighborhoods feature: Modern, three-story single-family homes in a gated community; Classic, two-story single-family homes in a gated community; and Market, three-story live/work townhomes. Every home offers two-car garages and floor plans range from three to four bedrooms.

Best Types of the Plants to Grow Indoors

When it comes to indoor houseplants, two requirements come to mind: low-maintenance and aesthetically pleasing. These forgiving, neglect-resistance plants not only act as beautiful decorative pieces, but can also purify the surrounding air and add a little Zen to your home.

Peace Lily

The peace lily is known for its signature white blooms surrounded by bold bronze-green foliage. Peace lilies are low-maintenance houseplants and come in a wide variety of sizes and types.  In fact, they grow anywhere from one to six feet tall. NASA named this plant in its list of “Top Ten Air Cleaning Plants” for the plant’s ability to filter toxins such as formaldehyde, benzene, and carbon monoxide from the surrounding air. Peace lilies like to be watered a lot at one time, so water the plant until moisture comes out the drainage holes. Since peace lilies produce crystals that can irritate the skin, keep small children and pets away from the plant and always wash your hands after handling.

Aloe

The most common potted type of aloe is the aloe vera, which produces a sap that can help soothe and heal small scrapes. Aside for its health benefits, indoor aloe plants thrive on minimal care and only need to be watered every few weeks. To keep your spikey, sword-shaped plants happy, place them in a location where the plants can enjoy plenty of indirect sunlight. Florists suggest potting the plant in clay pots with a drainage tray and positioning it in near a south-facing window.

English Ivy

Often found both indoors and outdoors, the English ivy is one of the more popular houseplants. The English ivy’s long, elegant vines and lush leaves make it a wonderful indoor trailing plant or indoor topiary. This plant requires plenty of indirect sunlight and prefers cooler, humid environments. According to a NASA study on indoor plants, English ivy plants can actually absorb air-born toxins. However, pet owners should avoid English ivy because it is toxic to cats and dogs.

Kalanchoe

The colorful flower clusters of the Kalanchoe are perfect for brightening up any windowsill in your home. These flowers come in a variety of colors such as bright pinks, oranges, reds, whites and yellows. Although the flowers only last several weeks, the kalanchoe’s thick, oval-shaped scalloped leaves will be a beautiful addition to your home year-round. These low maintenance plants thrive in low humidity winters and require lots of light. Kalanchoes are often victims of overwatering, so make sure to always empty the drainage tray after watering.

Jade Plant

Jade plants are evergreen plants with thick branches and rounded, smooth oval leaves. These houseplants make beautiful additions to kitchens and home offices. Nicknamed the “money plant”, jade plants are often associated with prosperity, wealth and good luck. Since these succulents thrive in sunlight, place your jade plant at a south-facing window where it can receive at least four hours of direct sunlight. Buy your own miniature jade plant here.
