Looking for a way to transform your home without spending a ton of money? Have you thought about house plants? Well, you should!

House plants are one of the best things anyone can add to their home. They look great in the living room, the bedroom, a kitchen, or even (especially!) the bathroom.

They can be a little bit difficult to take care of (we’ve all killed a few plants in our day). But, once you get the hang of it, you’ll find that plant decor is a great way to add some new life to your living space.

Best Indoor Plants

Many people avoid houseplants because they’re afraid of caring for them. But, plants aren’t actually that difficult to keep alive. As long as they get the sunlight and water they need, they’ll be more than happy to sit on your desk, table or shelf.
Certain plants tend to thrive indoors. These are great for new plant owners who are afraid of killing their plants.
Here are three great plant breeds that live perfectly happy indoors.

Chinese Evergreen Hirts

Chinese Evergreens don’t really like light. So, if you have some extra space but not a lot of windows, this plant could be great for you.

It helps if you can put it in direct sunlight from time to time. But, we see these plants in office waiting rooms a lot because they can survive entirely on artificial light. So don’t let it stress you out.

Fiddle Leaf Fig Florida Foliage

The Fiddle Leaf Fig is a tall, skinny plant that’s great for people who don’t have a lot of extra space. It grows tall, so you’ll need to have some ceiling room, but it doesn’t grow much more than 8″ in diameter.

You can buy small, baby Figs for pretty cheap. But, if you want to purchase a full-grown one (like the one pictured), it’ll cost you more than $100.

Cacti Costa Farms

It’s be remiss to write about indoor plants without mentioning the cactus. These spiky desert plans have become more and more popular over the past few years, particularly among people who live in apartments.

While they do need sun, cacti don’t require much water. So, you can leave town for a week and not have to worry about having to feed them.

They also hibernate during winter, which is pretty nice because it gives you a break from having to hang out with them all the time ; )

Having plants in your bedroom is a great way to liven up your life. They improve the air quality by filtering out toxic chemicals and, of course, the add a lot to the aesthetic. There’s nothing better than waking up in a room filled with lively, green houseplants. But which ones thrive the best in that type of environment? Here are a few plants that might be perfect for your bedside table:

Philodendron 9GreenBox.com

Philodendrons popular bedroom plants because their versatile and flexible. They’ll survive on an end-table or hanging in a basket from the ceiling.

These plants definitely require light, so you can’t keep them cooped up in a windowless room. But, they’re relatively easy to care for, making them one of the best plants for your bedroom.

Parlor Palm Hirt’s

Parlor palm plants are one of the most common plants to see in shopping malls and office buildings. That’s because they grow naturally in the shade. So, they don’t need a lot of light to live a long, healthy life.

Therefore, if your bedroom has very few windows and very little light, a parlor plant might be the best thing for you. If you love this plant but have a lot of light, try to keep it away from the sun to avoid too much exposure.

Aloe Vera Costa Farms

Like cacti, aloe vera plants belong to the succulent family. Therefore, also like cacti, they can survive on very little water for long amounts of time. This makes them a great plant for people who aren’t very good at taking care of plants.

But, that’s not the only nice thing about aloe vera. It also looks really nice. And, when it starts to grow, you can cut some leaves off to treat sunburns and skin wounds.
