Longing for a little indoor greenery, but less than confident when it comes to picking, potting, and caring for house plants? Indoor plants not only make your living space more inviting and luxurious, they also make your home’s air healthier. Adding an indoor garden to your home is much easier than you thought.
Top 5 Indoor Plant
Like most of the other plants on this list, the rubber plant requires bright, indirect light. You should only water it when the soil is dry. Rubber plants have the added benefit of being one of the best natural air-cleaners out there. Place them near your favourite seating area to enjoy the fresh air.
Fiddle Leaf Figs
Bright, indirect light is ideal. Only water this plant when the top inch of the soil is dry. Place it in a corner to create a dramatic focal point.
Split Leaf Philodendrons
Bright, indirect light and even moisture allow this plant to thrive. You can dip a simple planter in neon paint, which brings out the gorgeous green colour of the leaves.
Four hours of direct sunlight (and indirect during the rest of the day) and steady moisture is key to keeping your ivy happy. Put your plant in a pot that gives it room to grow or train it around a sculptural form to create a topiary.
Sunlight and regular waterings keep indoor palms happy. While many others require high humidity (impractical as far as the indoors go), the kentia is relatively low-maintenance. It also adds major drama to a dining room.
