There is nothing better than having a room full of beautiful elements, soft lighting, and a peaceful atmosphere. Many people dream of creating such spaces with bright and refreshing pieces. When it comes to revamping your living room, nothing does it better than the lush greenhouse plants.
If you are looking to get an air purifier for your living room, why not invest in these Top 5 Plants for Your Living Room? However, your choice must depend on your space and the direction of the windows. Considering the above factors, we have listed the top 5 best plants that will rejuvenate any dull environment.
1. Fiddle-Leaf Fig Tree (Ficus Lyrata)
This shrub boasts a long, elegant stem and branches with broad, leathery leaves. For placement, Schrader suggests “under a skylight or next to a window.” In other words, it needs as much sun as possible. Schrader suggests pruning the top branches when they grow above the window frame.
Fiddle-Leaf Fig Tree Care: Water once a week, or more if it’s winter and the air in your home is dry.
2. Split-Leaf Philodendron (Monstera Deliciosa)
Favored by Henri Matisse, this plant has a distinctive leaf that looks as though it’s been gently cut into by a careful hand. Schrader says you can cut off the top—as long as it has air roots attached—and replant it, meaning if you buy one of these, you could easily have more, if you’d like.
Split-Leaf Philodendron Care: Water once a week.
3. Kentia Palm (Howea Forsteriana)
The fronds of this plant spring to great heights from the soil, then lean forward, quietly shading the ground beneath. “It looks great in a big urn,” says Schrader, noting that it should be given lots of space, as it can grow up to 10 feet with a broad reach.
Kentia Palm Care: Requires medium to bright light; water weekly.
Dracaena plants vary in size, shape, and color, but all share a main characteristic–their long leaves grow outward and up from a central stalk or cane. The canes are sturdy, lending an unexpected architectural element to the whimsical foliage.
Dracaena Care: Requires indirect to bright light; water once a week.
5. Snake Plant (Sansevieria Trifasciata)
With sword-shaped leaves winding gently from the soil like charmed snakes from a basket, this indoor house plant strikes a lovely balance between order and chaos.
Snake Plant Care: Place anywhere you’d like and let the soil dry completely between watering. Check the soil every week, but it’s fine to skip a few.
