Is your Instagram feed flooded with hilarious plant memes?
Whether you have a tiny studio apartment or a farm with hundreds of acres, plants play an important role in beautifying your property. But, like everything else, trends come and go when it comes to indoor plants and outdoor plants.
What are everyone’s favorite plants as we move into 2022? Here are this year’s most popular plants for your consideration.
1. Angel Wing Cactus
Looking for a low-maintenance house plant that might outlive you? Pick up an adorable angel wing cactus, also (appropriately) called “Bunny Ears.”
Its spines stay close to the pads, making it one of the less-intimidating members of the cactus family. Put it somewhere with plenty of direct sunlight and give it water once every 2-3 weeks.
If you keep it indoors, it won’t grow taller than a few feet. Outside, it can easily outgrow you!
2. Bird of Paradise
The pandemic wiped out 150 million summer vacations in 2020, and travel still hasn’t fully returned to “normal” two years later. It’s little wonder, then, that we’re all desperate to bring a taste of the tropics into our homes and gardens.
This is only one reason why the beautiful strelitzia (bird of paradise) is one of the most popular plants of 2022. They grow best in direct light and indoor temperatures of 65-80 degrees.
Water them when the top half of the soil is dry to the touch. Your bird of paradise will also thrive with occasional misting to keep humidity levels optimal.
3. Stella De Oro Daylily
This stunning daylily was the top-selling perennial in 2021. Compact, hardy, and beautiful, they’re a great addition to your patio or garden.
As a dwarf miniature varietal, they’ll reach a mature height of 12-18 inches with a spread of 18-24 inches. The flowers are bright canary-yellow and are sure to attract hummingbirds and butterflies.
Best of all, they thrive in a variety of soil types and environments, making them a good choice for almost any climate.
4. Star Power Juniper
If you want to add some year-round greenery to your lawn, consider the fast-growing star power juniper.
The tree has a delicate, almost sparkling appearance and its berries provide food for birds and deer. A mature juniper will grow to about 17 feet with a spread of 7-9 feet.
Can’t find a star juniper in your area? Vanpoecke-zn.be has a wide variety of beautiful conifers, shrubs, and hedge plants to choose from.
5. Pilea Peperomioides
Also called the “Chinese money plant,” this adorable houseplant makes the perfect addition to any windowsill in your home.
They’re super low maintenance and their leaves resemble lily pads. Place them somewhere with bright, indirect sunlight and water them only when the soil is dry.
Bonus: They’re one of the easiest indoor plants to propagate, so snip a leaf and share with your friends and neighbors!
