So you want a BIG indoor plant eh? Find out which houseplants everybody is raving about at the moment!
Fiddle Leaf Figs
Of course we have to start off with one of the trendiest houseplants of 2022, the fiddle leaf fig!! These guys are so popular for many reasons. One of them is the aesthetic they bring with their big shiny leaves, full stems and their tree-like shape. This truly brings the outdoors in, creating a lush interior jungle vibe, contrasting the more modern interior design of our homes today. One of the best parts of having a fiddle leaf fig is watching the adorable new leaves grow! The tiny leaves look so silly next to their bigger siblings lol.
Lastly, they are so popular because they are so easy to care for. All you need is to provide a warm, humid environment, a good amount of water when the soil dries a few inches and plenty of light.
care details, lighting conditions
Ahhh the monstera! Probably one of the most well known houseplants - and for a good reason - they're BEAUTIFUL. They are highly sought after due to the way their leaves grow - hugeeee and with holes in them. The fenestrations (holes in leaves) of the monstera, as well as their flexible growth habits, make each individual monstera very unique and one of a kind. Their trailing/climbing nature makes you feel as though you are living in a jungle! Though you aren't actually in a jungle, the monsteras are very forgiving. They are shade/low light tolerant and prefer higher humidity, but don't mind average household humidity.
Bird of Paradise
If you are looking for a statement piece, these are your guys! They grow HUGEEE leaves and up to 30 ft tall outside! Indoors they can grow anywhere from 6ft up, depending on how high your ceiling is lol. The bigger they are, the more tropical your house will feel. Their lush, dense, full foliage can provide great privacy and sun blockage to your home as well as make your neighbors jealous that they don't have one! As long as you keep it in the correct conditions, (bright light, thoroughly water when half the soil is dry and fairly humid air), they will be the conversation starter of your home.
Money trees! Everyone loves money! The money trees are said to bring good fengshui (good luck in chinese) into the house. Their signature braided stems make them stand out against all the other boring basic stalks. That and the money tree's full head of leaves gives the money tree a "tree" look.
On top of that, the money trees also tolerates a wide range of conditions such as being able to thrive in shady areas around the house, and their trained ability to tolerate drought! And as an added bonus, they are also pet-friendly! You can't tell me you don't want to fuss around with the leaves lol.
Rubber Tree (Ficus Elastica)
A rubber tree! You have probably seen them before and asked yourself, can I harvest my own rubber? Well, no. Contrary to what you may believe, this is not where we get commercial rubber from. That comes from a different plant, but thats another story. The Ficus Elastica is found in homes and offices around the world due to its modern look that can lift the mood of any office or home interior
It pairs well with many different interior design styles, so it is used abundantly in public spaces and residential interiors. The glossy, leather-like foliage drenched in rich army and uniform greens, highlighted by pink and maroon gloss, veins, and stems makes them stand out in just about any room they are in.
Lastly, they are so popular due to their resilience. As long as you place your rubber plant in a potting medium that is well draining, create moderate humidity in your home, fertilize monthly in the growing season and water when (~) the top inch of soil becomes dry, it will be smooth sailing with your rubber tree!
