Indoor Plants

Indoor plants, also called houseplants, are plants grown indoors for decorative, psychological or air purification purposes. Commonly used in homes and offices, indoor plants require special consideration of lighting, temperature, humidity, soil, and pot sizes in order to match the right plant for your space. Indoor plants are typically chosen to be sturdy and low-maintenance so that even the most forgetful or on-the-go owners can maintain the health of their plants. With a variety of plant shapes, heights, sizes, and custom pots designs to use, indoor plants are often a great addition to any interior space.

Snake Plants

Snake Plants, also known as mother-in-law's tongue, are densely packed evergreen plants with stiff vertical leaves. Architecturally shaped, snake plants are popular indoor houseplants due to their low-effort maintenance, pronounced graphic character, and air purifying characteristics that help combat ‘sick building syndrome.’

Indoor snake plants typically grow to heights between 2’-4’ (.6-1.2 m), though it is not uncommon to have snake plants grow upwards of 6’-8’ (1.8-2.4 m). The leaves of snake plants vary between species, but most have dark green leaves with yellow-green banding and widths of 2”-2.5” (5–6 cm).

Bird of Paradise

The Bird of Paradise, known scientifically as the genus of strelitzia, is a tall tropical plant with broad arched leaves. Grown as part of an outdoor landscape or indoors in large pots, birds of paradise have earned their nickname due to their colorful flowers that are reminiscent of the bird species birds-of-paradise. Birds of paradise grow well in standard humidity, bright light, and moist, rich, and well-draining soil.

The Bird of Paradise plant typically ranges in height from 36"-60" (91.4-152.4 cm), but can grow to over 72" (182.9 cm).

Paddle Plants

Paddle Plants, scientifically known as Kalanchoe luciae, is a stocky succulent with round paddle shaped leaves. Found naturally in Zimbabwe, Mozambique, South Africa, and Swaziland, the edges of the paddle plant become tinged with pink when stressed with direct sunlight and cool temperatures. Paddle plants are easy to maintain in indoor environments due to their drought resistant properties and preference for bright light, average humidity levels, and dry (or medium moist) well-drained soils. Paddle plants should only be watered when the soil has completely dried out.

Paddle plants grow to heights between 1’-2’ (30.5-61 cm) with spring blooming stalks of 2’-3’ (61-91.4 cm).

Fiddle-Leaf Figs

Fiddle-Leaf Figs, scientifically known as Ficus lyrata, are tall upright tropical ficus plants with variable large and broad violin-shaped leaves. Often grown indoors as houseplants, fiddle-leaf figs should be potted in containers and repotted yearly as their roots grow.

Fiddle-leaf figs grow up to 40’-50’ (12-15 m) outdoors, but commonly have heights between 3’-5’ (.9-1.5 m) when maintained as houseplants.

Peace Lily

Peace lilies, of the Spathiphyllum genus, are tropical evergreen perennials with white blooms and lance shaped glossy green leaves. Popular as an easy-going houseplant that removes pollutants from the air, the peace lily will bloom in the spring with proper care and light. If you have small children or household animals such as dogs or cats, keep the plant away from reach as the leaves of the peace lily contain calcium oxalate which is poisonous in large amounts. Peace lilies are happy in well-lit areas with non-direct light, semi-humid environments (mist occasionally), and moist well-draining soil.

Peace lilies typically grow to a height of 24”-40” (61-102 cm) with larger variants growing up to 32”-50” (81-127 cm).
