Want some indoor house plants but aren’t sure which to choose? Well, then you’ve come to the right place.
Plants can add wonderful warmth and life to any space. And while there’s a variety of lovely plants to choose from, each one requires a different level of upkeep and sunlight. It’s just about finding the right one for you and your home.
Keep reading to learn about 5 of the best indoor plants.
1. Monstera Deliciosa
Monstera Deliciosa is a tropical plant, known for its wide, hole-filled leaves. This unique feature also earned it the nickname the “swiss cheese plant.”
Before you get this one, make sure you know exactly how to take care of it and any other indoor plants you have. In terms of the basics, it loves medium, indirect sunlight and should be watered every 1 to 2 weeks.
2. Snake Plant
Don’t worry, this plant won’t attract actual snakes.
Snake plants are tall and dramatic, which means they’re great for bigger spaces such as a living room. They thrive under medium sunlight, but can still grow under both low and high light.
Just be careful not to overwater this one, as it is prone to rotting.
3. Rubber Plant
The rubber plant (also called a rubber tree) looks a lot more elegant than it sounds. It has large, green leaves and can grow to be about 30 ft tall.
The rubber plant needs bright, indirect sunlight to grow, ideally by a window with curtains. It should also be watered every 5 to 7 days. And if you notice the leaves starting to droop, this could signify that you either under-watered or over-watered it.
If you’re looking for a plant with a pop of color, you may like the Anthurium. This plant produces vibrant red “flowers” amid deep green leaves. It thrives in any indirect sunlight and needs to be watered every few days.
However, the Anthurium plant can be poisonous when ingested. So if you have pets that like to nibble on your plants, this might not be the one for you.
5. Aloe Vera
This pointy succulent loves bright, indirect sunlight.
Aloe is also great if you’re always out of the house as it doesn’t require too much attention. It should be watered every couple of weeks or if the soil feels dry to the touch.
And if you’re prone to sunburns, you can use the fresh aloe to alleviate your pain. Just be sure the plant hasn’t begun to rot before you rub it on your skin.
