Indoor plants have well and truly become a feature of the modern home and are an easy way of sprucing up any room.
Whether you want a small plant for your bedside table or a larger one to sit in the corner of the living room, the luscious green foliage brings a vibrant energy to every single space.
If you are yet to follow the trend or think growing indoor plants is too stressful, we have selected some of the easiest varieties for you to maintain. Check out these tried and true Urban Indoor Plant beauties that will take your interior to new dynamic levels of awesomeness…
The Umbrella Plant
An Umbrella Plant in your home should be pretty basic for you to take care of, in addition it will help you out by cleaning the air for you, bonus. They are normally undemanding (unlike a few of your past relationships) and providing, as the bare minimum, you water at least a few times each month you can have a beautiful looking plant to brighten up and give structure to a dull corner or used more boldly by having it flank a doorway. Get onto this one, especially if you want to create that 60’s type of vibe.
The Happy Plant
The Happy Plant is typically hard to make sad. Unless you’re totally a bully. Hopefully you’re not, cos ‘no-one likes a bully’ right? But back to the plant. This total babe of a plant doesn’t require much fuss, in return for a little bit of care and attention from time to time, the Happy Plant will show off its shiny good looking leaves and removal of various indoor air toxins. If you treat it very well, after many years you should get a bold ascent specimen with multiple crowns and the opportunity for it to produce a small spray of fragrant white flowers. Simply beautiful with minimum effort.
Structured, slender and very striking. Like most of the Dracaena varieties grown indoors the Dracaena Tree does have a few drawbacks (it gives you some good warning signs though, so don’t stress) but when compared side by side the Marginata remains slender and looks good even when quite tall, it can also support itself without any help from you. Arguably the easiest to look after and perhaps the most popular today. Starting to live in our homes in the 1960’s, this plant, once again, cleans the air and is especially adapt at filtering out xylene and trichloroethylene, big words that mean something dangerous we’re sure.
The Lady Palm
This palm is one of the easiest palms to grow. Super graceful and mega lush and compact.
This makes Rhapis very versatile. Wherever you may live, Rhapis is one plant that will thrive in your house or landscape. Not a super fast grower so perhaps invest in a larger plant if it is size that you are after. She will be good to.
If you need an easy care and forgiving houseplant, an ever popular Cactus could be the plant for you. The Cacti have the the regular care requirements of good light, heat and a correct watering technique. They don’t outgrow their chosen locations in your home or their pots particularly quickly, are quite cheap to purchase (when young) and require only basic maintenance. If you mistreat or are quite neglectful of your houseplants in general, a cactus will normally take more punishment before succumbing when compared to other houseplants. On the other hand if you are very attentive you will have a a fine specimen growing happily and potentially showing off some wonderful flowers. Go for it.
Succulent plants grow anywhere. They thrive with minimum fuss, flourish with little care and grow in small amounts of soil and the maximum amount of sunshine. Better still, they require little moisture, making them a stylish solution to Australia’s water crisis. Succulents have bold foliage forms and bright colours, and their ease of growing has ensured the revival of their popularity. Embrace them in all corners of your garden, in pots in your courtyard, on windowsills and even as indoor plants. They are one of nature’s most versatile beauties. Totally a shot hit currently in terrariums, if you want to smash out the latest looks.
