Picking the right plants for your home


Plants provide the perfect touch for any home. Their colors, structures, and placement can brighten up a room. Choosing the right one can be hard, but adding an organic element to your home makes it worth the extra effort.

Plants That Thrive In Sunlight

Cacti thrive in loads of direct sunlight, making them the best plants for those super sunny window sills in your bedroom or kitchen. They don’t require a lot of water so it’s extremely easy to care for.   

Aloe Vera and other succulents are great for home decor, as they grow full with a beautiful green color. Bonus tip: The plant’s sap can be used for scars and burns to heal them faster. The plant requires a moderate amount of water, but lots of light. Depending on the size, it may be best on the floor or on a shelf.

Plants For Low Light

Cast Iron plants have a very long lifespan, with a maximum height of 2 feet. Their dark green, healthy leaves provide a perfect deep green hue to your space. You don’t need to water them too often, but don’t let the soil get too dry or else they are hard to revive. 

Pothos and Dieffenbachia plants thrive anywhere except for total darkness and direct sunlight. Because of this, they’re perfect for hallways, bathrooms, and bedrooms. The soil should be damp, so water them moderately.

Plants For Different Climates

Eucharist Lilies do well in humid climates, and in the company of other potted plants. Medium light is best for the plant, and it should be watered once each week. The soil should be dry in between watering.

The sword shaped leaves of a Snake plant can add a spark to any contemporary interior. This doesn’t require much care, and only needs to be watered once every few weeks. We love the way they look on a side table, or even sitting on the floor in a room.
