Anyone who’s been keeping up on social media lately can see that more and more homes are housing beautiful, thriving plant families. And with good reason because who doesn’t love plants? We sure do! Plant enthusiasts everywhere are starting to see the benefits of inviting more and more green into their living space. You’ll find yourself breathing easier, feeling more relaxed, and having that aesthetic interior you’ve always dreamed of!
We know that it can be pretty overwhelming to choose which plants you want to adopt as a part of your growing family or which plants to gift your friends and fam. This is especially true if you’re considering plants for a Valentine’s Day gift or another important occasion. We want to make sure you’re extra happy with the new life you’re bringing into your humble abode. That’s why we’ve decided to share some of our favorite houseplants that’ll turn any space into a trendy urban jungle, including tips on how to keep your plant family happy and flourishing.
1. Split Leaf Philodendron
If you’re wild about tropical plants that will give your living room that jungle-like touch, then the Split Leaf Philodendron is the perfect match for you. Its lush, blade-like leaves and long stems are sure to grab anyone’s attention no matter which corner of the house they occupy. This plant thrives in partly shaded spaces and grows well in cute pots to match! Although they need to be watered regularly, they work hard in making sure your home is free of any toxins in the air.
2. ZZ Plant
The best plant for those who just don’t have the time to water their green friends every day! The ZZ Plant is pretty much invincible in our eyes – it just doesn’t seem to wither and retains its healthy shine no matter how much you seem to neglect it. Best of all, the ZZ can still thrive in low light conditions and low humidity temperatures. We just love plants that are strong enough to withstand some tough living conditions which are why this one just takes the cake!
3. Snake Plant
Probably the sleekest plant yet! The snake plant adds that elegant look to any corner of your home and even an added bonus: some chores off your list! Not only does it purify the air around them, they also leave no room for any allergens to invade your space so you can rest easy and skip out on the allergy medication. They’re the perfect, low-maintenance addition to any #PlantsFam since they don’t require much water or sunlight to grow tall and healthy.
For those bold, adventurous plant-lovers out there, the dracaena is the perfect reminder of your last island vacation with its glossy, bristly leaves. This subtropical plant is reminiscent of those swaying palm trees on those warm, crystal clear beaches you’d sometimes dream of.
If you feel like a part of your home is missing a lavish touch, the dracaena is the perfect occupant for those bare corners as they usually flourish into taller tree-like plants.
We can’t forget about these prickly companions. Succulents have definitely been in the spotlight as the trendiest houseplant to date, and we totally get why! They’re so easy to take care of since they only require a decent amount of sunlight and the occasional watering every month for a long, happy pot life.
A home can never have too many succulents since they’re usually petite enough to fill up some empty shelf space and window sills. You can even add some dimension to a room by having them hang from the ceiling or against some blank walls. Don’t be afraid to be bold and creative with these potted friends! The possibilities are endless when it comes to elevating your living space.
The way you decorate your home can really let your creativity and style shine, and we believe that plants are the best medium for those who are looking for that garden-like touch indoors. No matter what vibe you’re going for, there’s always the perfect plant to match your new urban jungle home.
