5 Of Our Favourite Indoor Plants

Fiddle Leaf Fig (Ficus lyrata)

With lush and large glossy leaves, there is no question that the Fiddle Leaf Fig is one of the most sought-after plants!

These beauties make an awesome house plant, brightening up any sad looking corner in your home. They are the perfect option for garden pots & planters.

Position in a well-lit location indoors, avoiding sunlight as it may burn those beautiful leaves. Rotate every couple of weeks to make sure each side is getting enough light; this will also help it grow nice and straight.

Swiss Cheese Plant (Monstera deliciosa)

The Swiss Cheese Plant is native to the Central American rainforest, so if you’re wanting to level up the tropical vibes at home, this beauty is for you!

Monstera love to spread their iconic big leaves so make sure you’ve got your plant friend in a statement-making spot! Don’t worry though, they do come in apartment-friendly sizes!

This plant thrives on bright to medium indirect light. Water every 1-2 weeks making sure you allow the soil to dry out between. They even love filtered water or water left out overnight (picky little things!).

ZZ Plant (Zamioculcas zamiifolia)

If you have a history of struggling to keep plants alive then look no further! ZZ Plants are infamous for being low-maintenance and easy to care for.

ZZ plants have shiny dark green leaves and positioning is flexible as it can tolerate low light. So if you’ve got a darker area of your home or office that needs greenery added, this plant is perfect.

Position your ZZ in low to bright indirect light, and water when fully dry.

Devil’s Ivy (Epipremnum aureum)

Devil’s Ivy also referred to as Pothos it’s heart-shaped shiny leaves that look amazing trailing down a bookcase or hanging pot.

Another low maintenance plant, this plant is nearly impossible to kill!

It’s fast-growing and super easy to propagate. Place in bright, indirect light. They do tolerate low light but this will stunt their growth. They do well in artificial light too.

Water when the soil feels dry to touch.

Chinese Money Plant (Pilea peperomioides)

With its distinctive round leaves, the Pilea has become a popular Insta-worthy house plant in recent years.

This little beauty comes all the way from Southwest China and is thought to bring good luck! (Even more pressure to keep alive!). When your Pilea is happy it will grow tiny pups at the base, perfect for sharing with your friends.

This plant loves bright (not direct) light so a windowsill can be the perfect possy. Be careful not to overwater! Ensure that the soil is dry before you water again and ensure that there is adequate drainage available.
