Our Top Houseplants

December 8, 2021


with Houseplants

Not only do indoor plants enhance the overall appearance of a space, but they’ve been shown to boost moods, increase creativity, reduce stress, and eliminate air pollutants — making for a healthier, happier you.


Easy-to-grow houseplants are ideal for beginning gardeners since they require less care. Low-maintenance houseplants that do well in low-light areas of your home include pothos, hoyas, philodendrons, ferns, and sansevierias. These indoor plants are well known for their air-cleaning ability since they remove toxins from the air and give off healthy oxygen.

The secret to keeping a houseplant alive is to replicate its natural growing zone by giving it the amount of humidity, light, and water it prefers.

Our Favorites

These are our top picks for beautiful and easy-to-grow houseplants. 

Monstera deliciosa plant


Monstera: With its thick, Swiss cheese-like leaves and tropical feel, the Monstera deliciosa is a perfectly bold plant that can truly thrive in an apartment. They can tolerate many levels of sunlight and even grow under fluorescent lights. While you should water your Monstera regularly, it can survive a missed watering every now and then.

Aloe Vera

Aloe Vera is also called aloe barbadensis or aloe africana. The aloe vera plant is best known for its skin-soothing properties. It’s a useful plant to have around in the summer to relieve sunburns! Water aloe vera plants deeply, but infrequently. To ensure that you’re not overwatering your plant, allow the top third of potting soil to dry out between waterings.

Aloe Vera
Snake Plant

Snake Plants

The tough nature of Sansevieria, also known as the snake plant or mother-in-law’s tongue, means that it might continue to grow until its owner retires. Snake plants require little special attention—give it a drink from your water bottle on it on your way out the door on Friday and enjoy this slow-growing desk plant. 

English Ivy Gold Child

A beautiful gold variegated ivy, Hedera helix Goldchild (English Ivy) is an evergreen climber with medium-sized, lustrous, three to five-lobed, gray-green leaves, 2-3 in. across, adorn with broad, bright gold margins. In hot weather, the variegation can fade to butter yellow. They are tolerant of drought and perform best when the soil dries out between waterings.

English Gold Ivy
Jade Plant


The jade plant is a succulent that stores water in its fleshy leaves. Plus, it’s easily propagated by placing leaves in the soil. Never let a jade plant dry out completely. But also, do not water a jade plant too often, as this can cause root rot. Don’t water your jade plant on a schedule. Rather, water your jade plant when the top of the soil is just dry to the touch.


Pothos is arguably the easiest of all houseplants to grow, even if you are a person who forgets to water your plants. This trailing vine has pointed, heart-shaped green leaves, sometimes variegated with white, yellow, or pale green. While pothos likes bright, indirect light, it can thrive in areas that don’t get a lot of sunlight or have only fluorescent lighting. It’s an excellent plant for locations such as offices and dorm rooms.



If you live a high-maintenance life and are always on the go, you need an easy-going, low-maintenance plant. The Dracaena is a great choice because it can easily adapt to different light environments, though it’s best to keep it away from direct sun. 

Apply a weak dose of fertilizer once or twice a month during the growing season.


Like all philodendrons, you have to be careful to not overwater it. Only give it a drink when the soil is completely dry. When it comes to light, it likes it bright or medium and indirect. There are two main types. One is a climbing vine and the other is an upright spreading plant that will form a trunk as it ages. There are many varieties of each.


Air Plant

Air plants, also known as Tillandsia, sustain themselves on moisture from the air and require no soil to grow. With a minimal root system and more than 500 species to choose from, there are a wonderful variety of visually interesting options, which can be displayed in stylish air-plant holders.

Spider Plant

Even if you skip town for the weekend and forget to assign a friend plant-sitting duties, the spider plant will not punish you for neglecting it. The self-propagating, air-cleaning, petite, and pretty spider plant will grow in low to bright indirect light, making it a great option for apartment dwellers or first-time plant parents.

Fairy Castle Cactus


A potted cactus will live and flower in the house if given enough light, place the plant near a bright lighted window, where it will receive light most of the day. Just like with succulents, cacti need regular watering to help them grow during their active season, which usually happens in the Spring and Summer. Whether you keep them indoors or out, they should be given a good soak each time you water them to the point that it drains out the holes in the bottom of the container.


Related to the pineapple plant, these will bring a tropical feel to your home. They are often sold flowering, but they need very stable warm conditions to bloom, so be prepared to just enjoy the foliage. They don’t like wet soil as they are epiphytes, meaning in nature they grow attached to trees and get their nutrients and moisture from the air.

Echeveria Perle Von Numberg


Because of their special ability to retain water, succulents tend to thrive in warm, dry climates and don’t mind a little neglect. This makes them well adapted to indoor growing and ideal for people desiring low-maintenance houseplants. Allow to dry out before watering and fertilize once a year. They are great for terrariums or as stand-alone feature plants.

Boston Fern

Your Boston Fern prefers bright indirect, filtered, or diffused light. Boston Ferns prefer warmer room temperatures between 60-70 degrees. Be sure to keep it away from heating ducts and drafty windows in the winter and air conditioner vents in the summer. Mist your Fern daily or place it in a light-filled bathroom or kitchen where the air is normally more humid and the soil should remain constantly damp but not soggy.

Peace Lily

Peace lilies make excellent houseplants for the home or office. These lovely plants not only brighten up a living space but are also excellent at cleaning the air of the room they are in. Most commonly, these plants have dark green leaves and white flowers. Peace lilies enjoy medium to low light and need consistently moist soil, but they definitely don’t like to sit in standing water. Whenever the top inch of soil is dry, water the plant until the overflow starts to come out of the bottom of the container. Wait until it stops draining, then set the pot back in its saucer.
