Indoor plants add natural color to a room.
Living plants add freshness and natural color to a room, and there are many options that require very little care. If you don’t have a green thumb, you can select from a wide variety of artificial plants that are hard to distinguish from real ones.
Indoor plants range from large, lush trees to the smallest of African violets, and everything in between. Some of the most popular indoor plants include tropical orchids, cactuses, succulents, banana trees, dracaena plants, Philodendrons, ivy, and many varieties of ferns, ficus trees, and palms.
Place indoor plants on the floor, on a table, on a bench, on shelves — or you can even hang them on the wall!
Have fun with the containers you use, too! Just like plants themselves, containers come in many shapes, sizes, colors and glazes to complement any décor. And you can buy plant stands in a variety of styles that display plants at almost any height in your rooms.
If you opt for live plants, talk to your nursery about the light needs of various plants, and find out how quickly each plant will grow. Learn which plants are easy to grow, and how much water and maintenance each plant needs.
Keep in mind that plants don’t just come in shades of green. You can select plants with striking hues of red, orange, pink and yellow! Plus some indoor plants feature brilliant flowers in a variety of hues.
Make your home feel natural and green by adding indoor plants to your decorating plan.
