No matter the season, a beautiful plant can give your home a certain je ne sais quoi that keeps your space feeling fresh all year round. But especially in the dead of winter, when everything outside is well, dead, the right plant can do wonders for your mood and your home’s appeal. So, whether you have a green thumb or you’ve never been able to keep a house plant alive for more than a few days, here are a few perfect plants for your home.
The soft, light texture of the Asparagus Fern makes it a perfect fit for just about any living space. It adds an airiness to a room. And it’s easy to grow. The Asparagus Fern prefers warmer climates, so it’s at home inside where temperatures are a constant 70 degrees. It also likes indirect or filtered sunlight, so it can be placed just about anywhere around your home.
With its beautiful leaves and fast-growing vines, the Pothos plant, also known as Devil’s Ivy, looks great hanging or potted. It’s the perfect house plant because it can thrive in just about any condition. It tolerates low light extremely well and thrives in medium light. It also needs very little water to survive and is one of the best plants at purifying the air and removing toxins from your carpets and furniture.
Chinese Money Plant
Also known as the Pancake Plant because of its flat leaves, the Chinese Money Plant (Pilea) provides a burst of green color, especially against white walls. This plant is best suited for bright light, but not direct sunlight. It also produces little white flowers when exposed to slightly cooler temperatures, making them the perfect house plant to put near windows in wintertime.
If you have a spot in your home that gets a lot of sunlight, a Yucca plant may be the perfect plant for you. The Yucca thrives in bright light and needs very little water to survive. Just put the plant in a deep container to prevent the tall, woody stems from toppling over.
Another plant that thrives in low-light areas, the Dragon Tree plant is great for those neglected corners you don’t know what else to do with. The Dragon Tree’s bark retains water well, so it can stand to be underwatered, especially in cool, dry environments.
The right house plant is an integral part of your interior design. Just understand where and in what conditions your plant will thrive, and you can add a little extra life to your indoor spaces.
