Let's discover our top 10 best indoor green plants so that you can find the plant that suits you best and brightens up your home!

1. Strelitzia Nicolai (Bird of Paradise)

The Strelitzia Nicolai will never go out of trend. Which is not surprising, because who wouldn’t want this green beauty in their home? The Strelitzia is super big, so all you have to do is enjoy her full beauty. This plant is already a big one, but in South Africa, it has been observed reaching heights of 10 metres! So don’t be surprised if she becomes even bigger.

Expert tip! This is a plant that would adore some direct sunlight and lots of water. The potting soil should be kept moist at all times and she would also really appreciate a high level of humidity.

The leaves of a Strelitzia can have some tears in them, this is perfectly normal. These tears appear due to an evolutionary adaptation, since it allows wind to pass through her big leaves, how amazing is that!

2. Pachia Aquatica

Pachira Aquatica, or "money tree", is pretty amazing! With its shiny leaves and low water needs, it’s perfect for people who don't want to bother with frequent watering. Just give it a sif of water when the first top centimetres of soil is dry. Easy, isn't it? The braided Pachira Aquatica is even cooler thanks to its unique braided trunk.

Fun fact! Although originally from Latin America, it is very popular in Asia. Its five-pointed leaves are even a feng shui symbol.

And best of all, it grows like crazy! In the wild, it can even reach 25 meters in height! You might wonder whether it's a plant or a tree, right? But don't worry, it won't grow that tall in your home! So, if you're looking for a green, low-maintenance plant, the Pachira Aquatica is definitely for you!

3. Monstera Deliciosa

Who doesn't want a green houseplant with big leaves to feel like they're in the middle of the jungle? Introducing Monstera Deliciosa in size XXL! This green friend has those gapes in its leaves that everyone knows about, and a shiny green look that's simply stunning.

Fun fact! You may know it as the "Swiss cheese plant" because of its perforated leaves. And guess what? It's very popular with plant lovers because it's so easy to care for and it's very low maintenance!

4. Yucca Elephantipes

Yuccas, also known as palm lilies, are super cool, hence their inclusion in the list of the top 10 best green houseplants! These green beauties sometimes have creamy-white edges and pointed tips on their leaves, giving them a very fashionable look. They will make a great addition to your interior design with their sword-shaped leaves!

Expert tip! They love the sun, but aren't afraid of a little shade on hot days. And guess what? They're also perfect for busy plant parents, as they're hardy and don't need much water.

5. Alocasia Yucatan Princess

Meet the Alocasia Yucatan Princess, a real star with its glossy, thick leaves and deep red stems. This impressive plant is sure to be the centerpiece of your plant corner! It needs bright, indirect light. Place it near a window with some filtered light, but keep it away from direct sunlight to avoid sunburn. When it's watering time, let the top of the soil dry out, as the plant doesn't like wet feet. If you have any doubts, don't water it too much.

Fun fact! Some people call it Elephant Ear because of the shape of its leaves, which is rather cute, don't you think?

Place it in a cool decorative pot that matches your style, and guess what? It comes in different sizes, so you can find the one that best suits your space!

6. Spathiphyllum Sensation

Maybe the green houseplant you are looking for is the Sensation, the queen of the Spathiphyllum family! With its large, dark green leaves, it's a real eye-catcher. It can even form beautiful white flowers! What's more to love? This plant is great for purifying indoor air, making it perfect for bedrooms, living rooms, or offices.

Expert tip! This beauty is a thirsty plant. Its leaves droop a little when it needs to drink. Just wait for the soil to dry before watering again, and she'll be satisfied.

It also likes a little moisture, so you can occasionally mist it or group it with other plants to make it even happier. In addition, repotting her every two years will give her a boost of nutrients coming from the new soil.

7. Dypsis Lutescens

Do you want to add a green touch to your urban jungle? Then look no further than the Areca palm! With its lush, feather-like leaves, it's like a small tropical getaway in your home. And it can reach up to 6 meters in height, impressive, right?

Keep it happy with well-draining soil and water it when the top layer is dry. Small, frequent sips are best. Place it in bright, indirect light to keep its leaves looking fresh. Too much direct sun can burn them, so a north-facing window is ideal.

Fun fact! The Dypsis Lutescens is also known as the Golden Cane Palm and is a top pick for purifying the air, according to NASA. So, are you ready to add this tropical delight to your collection?

8. Philodendron Scandens Brasil

Looking for a plant with pretty heart-shaped leaves and a bit of color? We've got you covered with the Philodendron Scandens Brasil! It has pretty trailing vines and yellow stripes in the middle of its magnificent green leaves. Do you also think this plant looks like a mini-Brazilian flag?

Expert tip! This green houseplant loves bright, indirect light. It can tolerate lower light levels, but this may slow its growth. Keep it healthy with a thick soil mix and water it when the top layer starts to dry out.

Whether you want a baby plant to keep pace with your green friend's growth, or a plant that's already grown so you don't have to wait, we've got a range of sizes available on our website!

9. Alocasia Cucullata

Perhaps it's the Alocasia Cucullata that will excite you to grow your green jungle! This plant with its glossy, heart-shaped leaves is sure to be the envy of many! It likes bright, indirect light, so keep it out of the sun to keep it green and beautiful. Water it when the soil is almost dry and mist it occasionally to keep it happy with the moisture. In winter, it may lose one or two leaves, but this is not a problem. Simply reduce watering, as the plant is in a period of dormancy.

Fun fact! In its natural habitat, this plant can grow up to 4 meters tall, but don't worry, it won't get that big in your home, or at least it shouldn't. 😉

10. Ficus Lyrata

Say hello to Ficus Lyrata, also known as the violin plant because of its large, robust leaves! Straight from the rainforests of West Africa, this elegant plant is ready to be added to your plant collection. Give it a comfortable spot with plenty of warmth and light, but don't let it bake in the sun all day, especially in summer. When it comes to watering, plan on watering it about twice a week to prevent it drying out, but don't drown it in too much water. Pretty easy, aren't they?

Fun fact! Fiddle leaf figs boost oxygen levels in your home during the day, helping you sleep better at night. More oxygen relaxes the brain, helping to keep your brain healthy. Plus, houseplants like them can enhance focus and creativity, making them great for offices too!
