Who knew that indoor plants could be trendy? I was shopping at Trader Joe’s the other day and laughed to myself when the employee working in the floral section told me how “trendy” dwarf fruit trees are. I laughed at the word “trendy” and then was immediately intriuged. Could I really learn how to grow my own citrus indoors? Turns out, you can actually grow a LOT indoors. Check out my favorite options:
Yes! I wasn’t lying before…you can really PLANT and grow your own citrus, indoors! Grow the miniature meyer lemons for an burst of summer even in mid winter. These plants do require a lot of sunlight, so you may have to purchase a grow lamp to keep them functioning.
Low maintainence plants such as the water lily and the Amazon Sword Plant are making a huge statement in 2018. They thrive in water, so a glass jar with a bit of soil is all you need for tabletop glory. How fun would it be to watch one of these grow?
Patterned plant leaves are an easy way to add depth to a space. And it’s all natural, which makes it even better! Plant things like the Calathea “Freddy”, the Snake Plant, and the Dragon Tree for gorgeous prints.
Easy to grow, and its’s been in style for years! The snake plant is easy to grow, and even easier to keep alive. Water deeply, once weekly and that’s pretty much it. You’ll have indoor greenery in absolutely no time at all!
Succulents varieties like String of Pearls, Aloe Vera, Burro Tail, and Zebra’s Cactus are the best varieties of succulents when it comes to growing them indoors. Water when the soil is dry, and it’s best to keep them out of direct sunlight (depending on the variety, anyway)
Jade Plants are known for giving their growers a good, hearty dose of good luck. Keep your Jade Plants throughougly watered and never let the soil go completely dry. Stick these beauties in an area of the fullest sun!
I honestly had no idea that cacti was part of the succulent family until just recently. Because the cactus is part of the succulent family, it can easily store water. This makes it perfect for any of us indoor gardeners that tend to forget to water…They’re used to ample amounts of sunlight, so stick ’em in a windowsill!
All spider plants need to thrive are well draining soil, and bright but indirect sunlight. Water the plants when the soil seems dry, but never before that. Depending on the variety of your plant, you may find that yours likes to “dry out” before watering again.
Looking for the toughest, most tolerable indoor plant out there? Look no further the Aloe Vera plant is known for it’s hardiness. Water your aloe plant every three weeks, and you can allow your plant’s soil to dry out between waterings. Too much watering could cause deadly root rot, which may cost you your whole plant!
Guys, I honestly had no idea that rubber came from a plant. Please tell me that you won’t stop reading my blog because of this! Plant yours in an area of bright and indirect sunlight. In fact, most indoor gardeners recommend placing your rubber plant in front of gauzy curtains.
This slow growing plant forgives easily and doesn’t require much care at all. Make sure plants are watered twice weekly, but allow the plant to dry out between waterings. Root rot is the number one killer of Kentia Palms!
