Stylish Greenery: Gorgeous Indoor Plants That Are Easy to Care For

There are many benefits to bringing the best of nature indoors. Indoor plants can do everything from cleaning the air and livening up your home to lowering stress levels and elevating your mood.

While rare indoor plants are an exotic extra, they can be hard for the average owner to maintain. Finding yourself gorgeous indoor house plants that are resilient and can handle some neglect will ensure you don’t need to be an expert green thumb to keep them alive and thriving.

Turn your home into a horticultural haven with these beautiful indoor plants that are durable and more tolerant to unnatural conditions – the perfect pick for aspiring beginners.

Devil’s Ivy

Perfect for an office or home setting, Epipremnum aureum more commonly known as Devil’s Ivy is an incredibly easy-care plant. It’s adaptable, can be encouraged to grow high or can be left to drape gracefully as a hanging plant and thrives on irregular watering when the soil is dry. Its dark green leaves are an elegant addition to any space and can even come in speckled varieties.

Peace Lily

If you’re an accidental over-waterer, the Spathiphyllum genus, often known as a Peace Lily is a great choice. They easily handle too much liquid and it’s also a home favourite due to its tolerance of low lighting and fluctuating temperatures. Defined by large dark green leaves, when they receive enough light they’ll produce white, spade-shaped flowers. If you have pets, however, it should be noted that Peace Lilies can be toxic to animals.

Zanzibar Gem

Zamioculcas zamiifolia, otherwise known as the ZZ plant and Zanzibar Gem, is an East African native so it can handle drought, low light and low humidity. The dark glossy leaves are aesthetically striking, the sturdy stems are great for showing off a designer planter and it only needs watering sparingly when the soil is dry.

Persian Shield

If you’re looking to spruce up a drab corner of your house, the Persian Shield indoor plant is a prime choice. Its leaves are shaped like shields with a flashy, purplish iridescence and a silvery metallic sheen. They deal with partial sun exposure and grow best in warm, humid conditions with semi-regular watering when the soil dries up.

Calathea Ornata

Commonly known as Prayer Plants, the Calathea Ornata are hardy tropical plants that come in a variety of colours and patterns. It produces pretty foliage with pink stripes on large green leaves. While they aren’t fussy, inside they prefer good lighting and warmth and don’t like to be waterlogged.

Snake Plant

One of the toughest indoor house plants around, the Sansevieria Trifasciata can go weeks without watering and tolerates dark conditions brilliantly. Balancing order and chaos, this striking plant features long sword-shaped leaves rising out of the pot but can also be styled as a hanging plant. For best results, regular care is recommended such as watering once a week and decent, non-direct light exposure.

String of Pearls

A perfect indoor shelf plant, the String of Pearls hangs wonderfully from up high and is instantly recognisable by its tiny pea-shaped leaves. It’s used to harsh desert conditions so can handle neglect but will thrive under bright, indirect sunlight and watering once every one or two weeks.
