Trend Alert: 8 Unique Houseplants We’re Loving

— Scindapsus Pictus is easy to care for and quick to grow. Silver spots make this plant extra special! They look seriously amazing hanging baskets, you should definitely try one in your living room!

— Calathea ‘Beauty Star’ is a show stopper with its dark maroon and green foliage. This beauty loves high humidity and bright indirect sunlight.

— Haworthia Fasciata, is referred to as Haworthia ‘Zebrina’ because of the white stripes on its leaves. They are drought tolerant and require bright indirect light. It’s a perfect small plant for anyone starting out! 

— Tillandsia Xerographica is an air plant which means, no soil is required to live. Cool right? They grow well indoors, so just place it anywhere in your home for an instant statement piece!

— Sansevieria are available in many different varieties. Commonly known as Snake Plants, their snake like leaves grow tall making it perfect for those empty corners in your home. 

— Hoya kerrii have these adorable heart shaped leaves and shops are starting to sell just one sweet little heart in a pot. It doesn’t get any cuter than that!

— Peperomia argyreia leaves look like little round watermelons and if that’s not a perfect addition to your home for summer…I don’t know what is?

— Monstera deliciosa plants bring the best kind of tropical vibes into your home. They come in a variety of sizes so choose the best size for your space.

No matter what plant you bring into your home, be sure to research care on your specific plant for best results.

I like to refer people to my book, How To Raise A Plant and Make it Love You Back. In the book you will find easy to follow care for houseplants, DIYs and decor inspo.

  1. I just forwarded this to my husband as he is the one with the green thumb! I was just telling him that we need a new plant so thank you!

  2. I need to learn more about houseplants, since I can’t seem to keep them alive. I did recently get a fiddle leaf fig, and 6 months in it’s thriving. Time to add one of these to my home :)

    • Six months is long! We are actually going do another houseplants post but one with plants that are very very hard to kill.

  3. You forgot the most beautiful plant there is… The hoya carnosa compacta (indian Rope) as well as the other waxy leaf hoyas! Also, the pothos. I have about 10 that i have from rootings , and they are thick and gorgeous!

    • You are so right, Joan! Those are so beautiful!! We were trying to getting the list down to 8. P.S. We’d love to see your indoor plant collection! Sounds like you know and have a lot! XOXO
