Spider Plant

Spider plants are one of the easiest indoor plants to grow. It is arguably the most adaptable house plant. There are very few things more satisfying than watching a baby spider plant into a mature full-grown plant.

Dracaena

Dracaena houseplants are easy to grow and relatively free of disease. They are best kept indoors where they can receive plenty of light and should be watered only when the soil is completely dry. I’ve found that Dracaena plants love to be potted—they are happy in any standard pot with good drainage.

Peace Lily

Peace lilies are one of the most common indoor plants. They are very liked because they are very fragrant and have beautiful flowers. The best places to put your peace lily are areas where there is a lot of natural sunlight and a lot of moisture.

Rubber tree plant

Rubber trees make excellent houseplants. They’re elegant, they don’t need much light, and they add an air of mystery to any room in your home. I’ve been enjoying the natural beauty of rubber plants inside my home for years.  They can grow to be quite tall, but you can also keep them short by regularly trimming.

Boston Fern

Boston ferns have been popular indoor plants for several decades and many gardeners see these as a year-round addition to the home. While they do grow well indoors, it may take a little effort to get them started but once in, the Boston fern can provide an attractive accent to your decor without taking up too much space.  They’re also a great plant to hang from the ceiling or put on a pedestal.

Monstera

Growing monstera plants indoors is easy to do. It is not a tropical plant, so it can be grown indoor and doesn’t need much sunlight. Monstera is a flowering plant that produces huge leaves with vines. It’s an exotic plant to own, which makes an interesting addition to any home decor.

The popularity of these plants continues to grow as people are encouraged to seek out indoor plants. Not only do these houseplants look good, but they can help improve the air quality in your home and make it feel more alive.
