Houseplants

Indoor houseplants are one of the best ways to bring your garden indoors and spruce up boring spaces. With the promise of colorful blooms and green foliage that lasts all year long, it's not hard to see why house plants are becoming so trendy!

Our wide selection includes some of the best indoor houseplants to keep in your bedroom, home office, bathroom, or more. In warmer climates, some tropical houseplants can be kept outdoors on a patio or porch. When winter temperatures become colder, you will need to move your plants indoors where the houseplants will be safe.

There are many health benefits of houseplants in your home including fighting air toxins, reducing stress, and boosting mood and productivity. Get some new unique houseplants in your life today!

Most indoor plants prefer bright, indirect light next to a window. Be sure to avoid direct sunlight as this can scorch or burn the leaves. Keep away from drafty vents or fans as this is not the best for your new house plants. We do have a few options for low light houseplants too.

Some houseplants can be finicky towards watering and we have some tips and tricks to help keep your plants thriving. Make sure to choose a pot with a drainage hole. If your planting container does not have a drainage hole you can add rocks, marbles, or gravel at the bottom to create a reservoir for the extra water.

Potting soil choice is important too! Choose well draining potting soil such as Perfect Plants Organic Potting Mix so you have good aeration and extra nutrients to give your indoor plants the boost they need.

As always, check out our Indoor Plant Care Guide and Fiddle Leaf Fig Grow Guide for more specific information on growing house plants.
