0 Comments

Does your room looking bland and need some colors? You can now brighten up your space with these low maintenance home plants. It can add just the right amount of color and they’re free-form and organic yet clean.

No need of keeping it high maintenance. Their life span is pretty much longer, thankfully.

The location of the plant is pretty important. It should be dictated primarily by the plant’s light requirements. But you can also try placing a plant here or there and see what looks good to you, and don’t be afraid to move it around over time.

Here are the list of the best home plants for you:

Rubber Plant

Rubber trees can measure over 100 feet tall in their native Asia, but regular pruning can keep the ornamental variety in check. If the broad leaves get a little dusty, bring out the mayo for a florist-approved polishing trick.

Asparagus Fern

This fluffy plant tolerates a lot more abuse than other ferns — thanks to the fact that it’s technically not a fern. Asparagus setaceus adapts to both bright spots and darker corners. Keep the soil moist and it’ll thrive.

Fiddle Leaf Fig

These trendy trees have more than just lush foliage going for them. Their hardy disposition can adapt to most bright locations (minus direct sunlight). Water generously in the summer and slow it down when winter comes.  

Fiddle-Leaf Fig Tree Care: Water once a week, or more if it’s winter and the air in your home is dry.

Chinese Money Plant

Here’s another plant with fortuitous associations, although it also goes by the adorable nickname “Pancake Plant.” Pilea peperomioides prefers a shady spot (or winter windowsill) and weekly watering. Bonus: You can replant the offshoots that sprout from the base of the stem and keep money plants all over your house. 

Peperomia

These waxy plants do best in more humid conditions than trendy succulents. Bring ’em work too — the species even flourishes under fluorescent lights.

Chinese Evergreen

“Buy something that likes to live the way you do,” advises Gwenn Fried, manager of the Horticulture Therapy program at NYU Langone. “If you’re more of a waterer, an excellent plant is a Chinese evergreen.” It’s super forgiving if you overdo it on H2O, and it comes in tons of different varieties. 

Calathea

Also know as “Prayer plants” are grown for their foliage alone, and it’s easy to see why. The purple, green, pink, and red leaves put on quite the show. For the best display, keep the plant moist (not drenched) and avoid bright light.

Start indoor gardening now. Having a touch of green in your room or living room automatically adds up some calmness to your environment.
