What are the top 5 indoor plants?

Finding the perfect indoor plant for your space is tough. There are so many variables to consider!

Do you prioritize clean air or a small space?

Are you going for a creative and unique look or just looking to add some green to your home?

We’ve rounded up 5 of the best indoor plants for you:

1 – Snake Plant

The snake plant is a popular indoor plant because it is durable, easy to grow and tolerant of low light.

Be careful not to overwater this plant as it will create rot.

Also, you only need to water your snake plant every 2 months in the winter.

2 – Peace Lily

The Peace Lily is not an actual lily rather, it is a member of the colocasia family.

It is not only a great gift plant but it is also extremely easy to keep alive.

Make sure to drain the soil after you water your plant because the roots get rotted easily.

3 – Moth Orchid

This is hands down the best orchid to have in your home.

The Moth Orchid needs constant water and can never completely dry out.

Use a nitrogen based fertilizer twice a month to keep this plant healthy.

4 – Majesty Palm

A Majesty Palm in the home is like having your very own tree inside.

It is one of the larger house plants on this list and can reach up to 90 feet high outdoors.

Also, note that this plant is tempermental and requires the right mix of light, fertilization and heat to survive.

5 – Croton

The Croton is a poisonous but beautiful houseplant that is native to tropical forests. So, it is not a good plant for people with children or pets.

They are a beautiful plant that is a cousin of the poinsettia.
