Garden Column Breathe Life Into Your Living Space with Indoor Plants

 

Indoor plants are a great way to give your living space a fresh look. A splash of green amongst a typical indoor setting can make a space look softer and more inviting. 

 

Most indoor plants are very low maintenance and require only a little water. From the sought-after fiddle leaf fig to many smaller vine-like hanging plants there’s a look to suit almost every space. And in many cases Indoor plants can even be good for you! Various studies have looked at the benefits of houseplants which can include filtering the air and increasing your sense of wellbeing. 

 

Top Indoor House Plants this Month

 

Fiddle Leaf Fig (Ficus Lyrata) 

Native to western Africa, growing in the rainforests of Cameroon to western Sierra Leone, the fiddle leaf fig (ficus lyrata) has recently gone global and become one of the hottest houseplants around. Their large architectural leaves look stunning, and the plant itself is easy to grow.

 

ZZ Plant (Zamioculcas Zanzibar) 

This jurassic, prehistoric-looking plant thrives on neglect. More likely to be killed from being cared for, it’ll cope with a wide array of conditions indoors.

 

Sansevieria 

Also known as Snake plant or, the somewhat old-fashioned name, mother in law’s tongue. This succulent is easy to grow, requires little water, can be grown in a wide array of conditions, and generally looks amazing. For best results place in bright indirect light (though they will tolerate some sun) and allow to dry out between waterings.

 

String of Pearls (Senecio) 

Showy, elegant, creeping succulent. Easy to care for, these plants are so popular that a scramble often takes place when people realise that they are available. Once established they look stunning, especially when they grow enough to drape right around their pots.
