But without further to do, our top ten.

1. Chinese Evergreen (Aglaonema)

Chinese Evergreen | 10 Best Trees To Grow Indoors | Indoor Plant Care Guide | Benefits to growing plants indoors | What does growing plants indoors do for you | How to grow trees indoors | How to grow plants indoors

Chinese Evergreens are durable plants! They can survive through , drought, low light and dry air! They are amazing for beginners and can make nearly anyone look like expert gardeners!

They are extremely easy plants to care for and grow and are also very popular house plants.

Just make sure their soil is well drainable (to avoid root rot of course), not placed in direct sunlight, and they also love humid temperatures!

Bathroom plants anyone? I think yes!

2. Corn Plant (Dracaena fragrans)

Corn Plant | 10 Best Trees To Grow Indoors | Indoor Plant Care Guide | Benefits to growing plants indoors | What does growing plants indoors do for you | How to grow trees indoors | How to grow plants indoors

The Corn Plant is such a beautiful tree to grow in your home! Their leaves stay green all year and produce little white blooms when cared for properly!

Unlike the Chinese Evergreens, these trees need soil that can retain water well but can also drain water so it doesn’t get waterlogged.

These trees also love sunlight, but indirect light specifically. They would prefer to be in low-light rather than direct sunlight also, so keep that in mind with placement of your tree.

Also note, they are sensitive to the temperatures they are in, they need to be in consistent temps of 60-70 and cannot tolerate cold weather at all, so be careful and watch your tree because it will give you physical signs of its health!

3. Dragon Tree (Dracaena draco)

Dragon Tree | 10 Best Trees To Grow Indoors | Indoor Plant Care Guide | Benefits to growing plants indoors | What does growing plants indoors do for you | How to grow trees indoors | How to grow plants indoors

Yet another gorgeous tree that prefers indirect light over direct (which makes them perfect houseplants!) Direct light may cause the tree’s leaves to burn.

Dragon Trees grow best in well-drained pots, and to see best results water their roots with distilled water! They will highly appreciate that from you! Only water the tree again once the top of the soil has dried out

If you see the leaves browning or even falling off, you may be over-watering, so watch for the signs! Although you should expect to see the bottom layer of leaves fall off, which is totally normal so don’t be too alarmed by that, they’re just making room for more!

4. European Olive (Olea europaea)

European Olive Tree  | 10 Best Trees To Grow Indoors | Indoor Plant Care Guide | Benefits to growing plants indoors | What does growing plants indoors do for you | How to grow trees indoors | How to grow plants indoors

So, the European Olive tree does require plenty of sunlight, so if you have a window that let’s in light all day, that just might make it the perfect spot for this beauty!

These trees do not grow very quickly, on average you’ll see them grow about 12″ a year or less even. They are okay in dry conditions and like always, need a well drainable pot to live in.

The best part about these trees though is, they grow edible olives! You will begin seeing black or green olives that you can totally add to your meals! Or if you don’t like eating them directly, they can also be pressed for their oils!

5. Fishtail Palm (Caryota)

Fishtail Palm Tree | 10 Best Trees To Grow Indoors | Indoor Plant Care Guide | Benefits to growing plants indoors | What does growing plants indoors do for you | How to grow trees indoors | How to grow plants indoors

I especially love these palms because of their elegance. When deciding placement for these, make sure you pick a spot that gets plenty of sunlight!

They, of course, need soil that drains very well, but also needs to have constantly moistened soil! Fishtail Palms also do not like being in warm weather.

If you want to successfully grow and flourish your Fishtail Palm, you need to make sure it has constant direct light, well watered, and in humid areas! They are very slow growers and you might not realize their is an issue with them until years after something going wrong with them!

Definitely do not recommend this tree to beginners, it requires lots of care and attention to see best results with it’s life!

6. Norfolk Island Palm (Araucaria heterophylla)

Norfold Island Palm Tree | 10 Best Trees To Grow Indoors | Indoor Plant Care Guide | Benefits to growing plants indoors | What does growing plants indoors do for you | How to grow trees indoors | How to grow plants indoors

Think of these as little Christmas Trees (well, before they get into adulthood at least). These are tropical plants that do require humidity and lots of sunlight!

Making a humid environment for a tree can be aseasy as using a pebble tray with water, getting a humidifier, or simply misting it’s leaves down weekly.

Although they will thrive best with lots of direct sunlight, they can also tolerate decent amounts of indirect sunlight or an artificial light.

You’ll know when to water these once the top of the soil has dried out. You should expect the lower branches to brown, but if you notice a trend that the branches throughout the tree are browning, then that might be a sign of under-watering, over-watering, or just not enough humidity.

We also do not recommend this tree to beginner botanists.

7. Parlor Palm (Chamaedorea elegans)

Parlor Palm Tree | 10 Best Trees To Grow Indoors | Indoor Plant Care Guide | Benefits to growing plants indoors | What does growing plants indoors do for you | How to grow trees indoors | How to grow plants indoors

Parlor Palms are slow growers, and are often passed from generation to generation of people. They also do not get very large, they can grow from just a few inches or up to 3 feet.

These palms will thrive with in low lit and shaded areas. Indirect sunlight will actually harm the plant and cause the plant to dry out, which in turn can also lead to pests that come to snack on it afterwards.

They prefer to be in humid environments and like consistent moist soil. They need well drainable soil and pots too, or else you will notice the tips of the leaves browning, which you don’t want of course.

8. Rubber Tree (Hevea brasiliensis)

Rubber Tree | 10 Best Trees To Grow Indoors | Indoor Plant Care Guide | Benefits to growing plants indoors | What does growing plants indoors do for you | How to grow trees indoors | How to grow plants indoors

Rubber Trees make perfect trees in their adolescents, but they can eventually grow up to 50 feet tall! Although if you start off with a smaller one at first, it will condition itself to be a houseplant!

This tree does have specific requirements it needs in order to grow at it’s best, they need a certain level of light and water. Too much or too little of either can end up damaging the plant

The easiest way to start growing your own, is to actually get a small branch from a mature one, and plant it into good soil or in a vase of water until their are roots on it to put into a planter!

9. Triangle Ficus (Ficus triangularis)

Triangle Ficus Tree | 10 Best Trees To Grow Indoors | Indoor Plant Care Guide | Benefits to growing plants indoors | What does growing plants indoors do for you | How to grow trees indoors | How to grow plants indoors

Triangle Ficus’ are actually very easy plants to grow! They can reach about 8 feet tall and have a spread of 4 feet at adulthood.

Providing this tree with bright light is the most crucial to its growth! Without proper lighting it will lose it’s leaves and halt it’s growing. They don’t tolerate cold well either and will need to be kept in temperatures of 55 or higher.

Water the soil once the top of it has dried, and place a humidifier next to it to see best results. A well drainable pot and soil will also suit it best. They also grow best when you fertilize them every 4 weeks, they will be very happy!

10. Yucca (Yucca brevifolia)

Yucca Tree | 10 Best Trees To Grow Indoors | Indoor Plant Care Guide | Benefits to growing plants indoors | What does growing plants indoors do for you | How to grow trees indoors | How to grow plants indoors

These trees are easily one of my favorites! They are very versatile to indoor and outdoor settings. Their size also ranges between 2 and 30 feet! So they make great household plants at a young age, but possibly move them out once they grow up a bit? I know I don’t have that space in my house for a 30-foot tree.

They grow white flowers with a soap like fragrance, so they will make your house smell a bit cleaner! The trees grow much better in lots of sunlight in either indoor and outdoor settings!

Do not let them sit in water, it is not good for their roots! They need well drainable soil and pots to prevent root rot and water logging!
