How to Select the Best Indoor Plants


Why Indoor Plants?

If you are a person who is starting to have interest on indoor-planting and want to have your space filled with plants, it is important to understand certain things and do some research. It is good to have indoor plants because they come with many benefits. Here are some of the benefits of indoor plants:

  • Improves air quality
  • Increases humidity level
  • Removes toxicity
  • Produces oxygen
  • Improves health
  • Helps improve concentration

What needs to be considered while choosing plants? There are certain things that need to be considered before selecting plants, as there is no harm in increasing your knowledge on the new project you are interested in.

Below are some points which I think are important while selecting plants:

Lifestyle you live

It is important to consider the type of lifestyle you live. If you have a busy lifestyle even if you are very much interested in planting, you might want to consider plants which need minimum water and care. At least as a beginner, you might want to consider that. But, if you are a person who does not have that busy life and you can be more committed towards planting, you certainly move ahead with plants which need more care. Some of the plants which can go on for days without water and do not need much care are

  • Snake plants
  • ZZ plants
  • Pothos
  • Succulents
  • Orchids
  • Sago Palm

Lighting Condition at Home

If your house gets enough light, you can consider buying plants which need a lot of light or plants that thrive in sun light. But if your space doesn’t get enough light, don’t worry. There are plenty of plants which can thrive in minimum light.

Some plants that grow without light are:

  • Dracaena
  • parlor palm
  • creeping fig
  • Maidenhair fern

Home Space

Home space is also something which should be considered while getting plants at home. If you have a small space, it is not practical to get plants which will grow big. However, if you have a big space you have options to get either many small plants or big plants. There are plenty of small plants which are very cute looking.

Some of the plants which are good for small space are:

Your Interior Décor


It is good to check out plants which compliment your home style and does not make your interior look weird. Depending on your decor, you can select plants. Vibrant flowers might look good in some rooms, while green plants might look better in the other. The pot you select also makes a lot of difference. So, it is good to experiment, but choose wisely.
