I don’t really consider myself as having green fingers, so to speak, but I do adore plants – especially in spaces with lots of white. We have a few plants in our home and you may have noticed that I sometimes like to use them in our product photos. (I also have two Pinterest boards dedicated to plants, here and here.)
If you don’t have any plants in your home, I encourage you to get a few. You’ll be amazed at what a difference they can make in your interior. Also, I don’t think there is such a thing as having too many plants in your home, as long as you know how to take care of them.
Here are a few of my favourite types of indoor plants.
I love the above one not only for its name but also for the beautiful shape of its luscious leaves. It naturally grows in the shade, so it makes a great indoor plant.
Fiddle Leaf Fig Tree
The Fiddle Leaf Fig is one of my personal favourites (my name is currently on a waiting list for one, as they are incredibly hard to find). You’ve probably seen it in a photo before – they are quite popular, especially for Scandinavian interiors.
The one above (Sansevieria trifasciata) goes by many names, including snake plant, viper’s bowstring hemp and mother-in-laws’s tongue.1
Cacti & Succulents
I love all kinds of succulents and cacti. Not only are most of them super low maintenance (generally requiring very little watering), but they make amazing decor pieces. Just remember that most succulents are outdoor plants, so if you are going to use them indoors, make sure they are placed in a sunny area.
Finally, if you want something interesting and hardy that requires almost zero care, there are air plants. I just love these – they don’t have roots and you only have to spray them with water once in a while. There are many ways to display them: I sometimes just put them on a shelf or on my desk but you can put them in a glass pot or make some kind of plant hanger. I think they also make great table decorations.
And as I mentioned earlier, you can never have too many – I just love the combinations below:
I’ve included only a few – there are so many more to choose from. As for plant holders, there are a few alternatives to pots. You can always use one of our canvas buckets (a large one for a large plant and the mini ones for herbs). Another great way to display a large plant is in a basket – you can find our new one here.
One last thing: We will be bringing out some plant hangers soon, so keep an eye out and let me know what you think!
