You will find her in different sizes on our website. By the way, did you know that her sister, Monstera Deliciosa Less Variegata, is just as easy to care for?
2. Philodendron Scandens Micans
This is the perfect plant for tall cabinets, windowsills or wall shelves, the Philodendron Scandens Micans! This is an ideal hanging plant that also grows well in a semi-shaded spot. The Micans' leaves have a velvety appearance, making it extra fun to look at. The happier she is the longer her stems get, the more beautiful the velvety leaves become!

The Strelitzia Nicolai is also a really big beautiful plant! Do you have an empty spot in your house where the sun occasionally comes through? The Nicolai will love it! Make sure the potting soil stays moist, water once a week and you will see that you can enjoy the Strelitzia Nicolai for a long time. Its relative Strelitzia Reginae is also an easy plant to add to your interior!
5. Ficus Lyrata
Ficus Lyrata, also known as the fiddle-leaf fig, is a beautiful plant with leathery leaves. This plant is also easy to care for, there are only a few requirements to consider. Like most plants, the potting soil should be kept slightly moist and Ficus grows best in a light spot! The only thing this plant doesn't like much is being moved. So get it a good permanent and light spot and voila!
6. Monstera Adansonii
The Monstera Adansonii is related to the Deliciosa, so this plant is also super easy to care for! The Adansonii is only a bit more compact and its leaves consist of multiple holes. Even though this Monstera is smaller in size, with the right support you can make this plant climb all the way to a full bush! Want to know more about Monstera care? Read it here!
7. Pachira Aquatica
Pachira Aquatica is also known as the Money Tree. This cheerful little tree with a tuft of leaves is super easy to care for, once every three weeks this plant expects a splash of water. The next watering is only when the soil has really dried up. The Pachira Aquatica stores water in its trunk which means fewer waterings are needed, easy huh?
This is perhaps the easiest plant of all, the Sansevieria Laurentie! You can't easily go wrong with this tough lady. It doesn't mind missing a little water now and then and grows well in both light and shady places! You will find more information and the different varieties in our shop.
Hoya comes in many different varieties, these fun hanging plants are also called the wax flower. But don't be afraid! The Hoya does not manage to bloom on everyone. During the growing season, the Hoya only needs to be watered once a week, and in winter it keeps quiet. Then you only need to water when the soil has dried up, easy peasy!
Looking for a cool plant? Then the Yucca is for you! The trunk gives this plant a tree-like appearance. This makes her a real eye-catcher in your home. The Yucca originates from dry areas, so she needs little care and can really take a beating! Although she needs little water, it can grow quickly.
11. Zamioculcas Zamiifolia
Another great and easy-to-care-for plant. The Zamioculcas Zamiifolia! This plant has beautiful glossy leaves that will brighten up any room. The Zamiifolia is happy in both a bright spot and in the shade and needs very little water. The plant stores water in its stem and roots, so it's no problem if you forget to water once. The Zamioculcas likes to stand tight in its pot, but if the pot starts to crack, the ZZ plant will need to be repotted. Most plants prefer to be repotted in spring, as that is when the growing period starts. With the Zamioculcas, this doesn't matter at all! You can repot the ZZ plant at any time. Ideal, isn't it?
