This article is all about helping you to choose the right indoor plant for you and your home.
We’ve picked out six of our own personal favourites, each with their own advantages to help you come to the right conclusion.
Without further ado, let’s have a look at these plants!
Zamioculcas Zamifolia, or the Zanzibar plant is a hardy plant with glossy green leaves; it looks stylish in kitchens, bathrooms and living rooms alike.
Zanzibar’s dark green, glossy leaves are bang on trend at the moment and it really doesn’t require a lot of work; you can leave waterings for up to three months and Zanzibar will be absolutely fine. Zanzibar has a rhizome at its base; this acts as a type of water reserve of sorts.
There’s no doubt that Fiddle Leaf fig trees are the “in” houseplant with serious traction; their popularity just seems to be evergreen (excuse the fauna-based pun).
The Fiddle Leaf doesn’t necessarily flourish as a houseplant, so there are a few things that you need to know.
They don’t like drafts, being too wet or too dry, too much sun, not enough sun or dry air; at this point it’s sounding a lot like your Grandma, but you love her too right?!
Swiss Cheese Plant
The Swiss Cheese Plant certainly produces interesting leaves and it can be a real grower so if you are doing the planting you need to make sure it has plenty of space.
Due to its climbing nature it is perfect for spaces like a conservatory, an orangery or a larger room. They are frequently used in commercial properties to like hotel foyers and conference centres.
If we were giving out medals for the most tolerant house plant out there the Snake Plant would be right up there with a shot at the gold!
They can be neglected for weeks, but still retain a fresh, healthy look about them; they can survive in low light and are extremely resistant to pests.
Perfect for busy people.
The Peace Lily, which is sometimes referred to as a Closet Plant, is easy to care for and brings a splash of elegance to your home.
They are great at cleaning the air and enjoy low to medium light levels. Overwatering can be an issue, so always inspect the soil and the plant before watering; don’t set up a regimented watering routine.
