How to grow cascading plants indoors, hanging plants indoors, how to take care of indoor plants, how to take care of household plants, how to take care of vines, indoor plants care guide, best hanging plants for indoors

I especially love plants that hang and drop, they are so interesting to watch grow and I love the look of them covering walls and shelves. A bit obsessed with plants that consume lots of space and grow big and large, it might be a problem but I’ll deal with it when I have to.

As of just recently we started propagating our Philodendrons, Pothos, and Ivies so I thought it was just appropriate to write you all a post on our favorite indoor hanging plants!

So lets get into it, here are some amazing hanging plants you can start growing in your home!

1. Indoor Ivy – Plural Ivies

How to grow cascading plants indoors, hanging plants indoors, how to take care of indoor plants, how to take care of household plants, how to take care of vines, indoor plants care guide, best hanging plants for indoors

I love Indoor Ivy plants for so many reasons. There are tons of varieties out there that you can choose from to grow and they look absolutely gorgeous.

You can also scale Ivy’s to follow along walls horizontally, and your house guests will absolutely be impressed with your work! Get a full aesthetic and wrap them through a wooden ladder!

2. Peperomia – Peperomia Pellucida

How to grow cascading plants indoors, hanging plants indoors, how to take care of indoor plants, how to take care of household plants, how to take care of vines, indoor plants care guide, best hanging plants for indoors

Again, with these plants there are so many different varieties you are able to grow and they look stunning.

Definitely in love with their leaves and they are very unique to Peperomia plants so you can almost always spot this plant the moment you see them!

3. Arrowhead Plant – Syngonium Podophyllum

How to grow cascading plants indoors, hanging plants indoors, how to take care of indoor plants, how to take care of household plants, how to take care of vines, indoor plants care guide, best hanging plants for indoors

Okay, you cannot tell me the Arrowhead Plant isn’t just the greatest thing you’ve seen today.

The variation on the leaves is a pattern I am obsessed with and look for with many of my Pothos and Philodendron plants.

They are very brightly colored plants and make amazing home decor plants!

4. Donkey’s Tail – Sedum Morganianum

How to grow cascading plants indoors, hanging plants indoors, how to take care of indoor plants, how to take care of household plants, how to take care of vines, indoor plants care guide, best hanging plants for indoors

In full transparency I have yet to grow a Donkey’s Tail succulent for myself, but I intend to very soon.

I’ve recently started fixating on hanging plants in my home and this will soon join my collection. I love the way they look sitting on tabletops as well as hanging from ceilings in the corners of rooms. The possibilities are endless!

5. Philodendron – Philodendron Bipinnatifidum

How to grow cascading plants indoors, hanging plants indoors, how to take care of indoor plants, how to take care of household plants, how to take care of vines, indoor plants care guide, best hanging plants for indoors

At some point in your life, you are bound to obtain some variation of a Philodendron. I currently have a Brasil Philodendron growing and I have also started propagating it to make it leafier and longer!

If you don’t necessarily have a good track record with growing plants, and don’t own a Philodendron yet, then I highly recommend you start with one of these babies it will treat you well.

Going to interrupt your regularly scheduled program to tell you all about our Facebook group! We just recently started a community on Facebook to gather gardeners and plant growing enthusiasts! Join the group here, and post a picture of a houseplant you are currently growing and we just might feature you on our website!

6. Pothos – Epipremnum Aureum

How to grow cascading plants indoors, hanging plants indoors, how to take care of indoor plants, how to take care of household plants, how to take care of vines, indoor plants care guide, best hanging plants for indoors

Okay, so these are much like the Philodendron in a sense with their care and structure and also fairly easy to grow.

A common problem for both plants (and probably every indoor plant, ever) is that they get overwatered and that will be the downfall for them (no pun intended, you don’t want that).

I am growing and propagating the Golden Pothos and I am extremely excited for it to expand and honestly just turn into a monster of a plant.

7. Spider Plant – Chlorophytum Comosum

How to grow cascading plants indoors, hanging plants indoors, how to take care of indoor plants, how to take care of household plants, how to take care of vines, indoor plants care guide, best hanging plants for indoors

Spider Plants are also a favorite of mine to grow indoors and they can honestly grow pretty large if you don’t trim them back, but I don’t mind, bigger the better!

Spider Plants (in my experience, at least) are also very easy plants to propagate in water, so if you are new to propagation, then try your hand at these and learn the basics of them!

8. String of Pearls – Senecio Rowleyanus

How to grow cascading plants indoors, hanging plants indoors, how to take care of indoor plants, how to take care of household plants, how to take care of vines, indoor plants care guide, best hanging plants for indoors

I am entirely obsessed with the look of this plant. They are extraordinarily unique and you probably won’t find another plant like it!

The string of Pearls plant looks great hanging from ceilings (as you can see) but they also make great plants to place on taller shelves and counters!

9. Staghorn Fern – Platycerium

How to grow cascading plants indoors, hanging plants indoors, how to take care of indoor plants, how to take care of household plants, how to take care of vines, indoor plants care guide, best hanging plants for indoors

Just recently have I been learning about Staghorn Ferns and I almost didn’t add them to this list here but they are just so unique I couldn’t help myself.

The process of actually getting them ready and hung up is pretty difficult and does require a lot more care than your average houseplant so we do not recommend this for beginner growers.

10. Boston Fern – Nephrolepis Exaltata

How to grow cascading plants indoors, hanging plants indoors, how to take care of indoor plants, how to take care of household plants, how to take care of vines, indoor plants care guide, best hanging plants for indoors

This is such a gorgeous fern and I love the amount of space it takes at its maturity. Of course you can hang them on the ceiling, counters or pots but personally, I would have mine from the ceiling and just completely consume a corner of my home.

So before you go, let me give you some advice with growing hanging plants for myself.

DISCLAIMER: THIS IS NOT A PERFECT CARE GUIDE TO EVERY INDOOR PLANT YOU HAVE, JUST GENERAL TIPS THAT MANY INDOOR PLANTS NEED TO THRIVE.

Water: It’s common to plant knowledge that, the more leaves a plant grows, then generally the more water it will need to consume to keep producing energy to create more leaves and stems.

I say these need more water than other plants, but you also need to be aware that over watering your plants is the #1 household plant killer.

How can you tell you need to water your indoor plants? Stick your finger 2-3 inches below the soil, if you don’t feel any moisture, then it is time for them to get a bit of a drink.

It is also good to know that, the smaller the pot a plant lives in, the more likely that one will need to be watered more often, simply because it just can’t store as much water as larger pots can.


Light: So this is another common household plant killer. You honestly really need to think about the lighting your home has to offer before you start purchasing plants.

A tip I’ve learned from Planterina is that, if you can’t comfortably read a book in a room without having to look harder or longer at the words, then you should not put plants there.

Many very leafy plants don’t typically like direct sunlight as well and that can actually cause the leaves of said plant to burn, brown, or just stunt their growth entirely.

It’s absolutely important you look up proper care guides for any future plants you plan to have in your home and make sure you are able to accommodate to their needs.

  1. Having little to no direct sunlight in your home.
  2. Not having a yard to create an outdoor garden.
  3. Not living in a humid environment.
  4. And just generally not having enough space.

#1: Avocados

Best plants to grow in apartments and small living spaces | How to grow plants in apartments | How to grow plants indoors | Indoor gardening tips | How to start an indoor garden | How to grow vegetables indoors | How to grow avocados indoors | Gardening for beginners

You might be surprised when I tell you that Avocado plants are extremely easy to grow, even in an apartment!

What do you need to start growing? Simply another avocado!

It’s nothing new to the process of how you do it of course, but if you don’t know already:

  1. Stick 4 toothpicks into an avocado pit.
  2. Place on top of a glass of water so the toothpicks hold the pit.
  3. Fill the glass with wate so the bottom half of the avocado is submerged.
  4. Wait 2-6 weeks for it to sprout and you can plant it!

#2: Chinese Evergreen

Best plants to grow in apartments and small living spaces | How to grow plants in apartments | How to grow plants indoors | Indoor gardening tips | How to start an indoor garden | How to grow vegetables indoors | How to grow chinese evergreen indoors | Gardening for beginners

These plants are extremely popular for growing indoors because of how easy they are to take care for and manage.

Chinese Evergreens prefer low lit areas as well as warmer temps so keep that in mind when finding a place for your plant!

They are also part of our top 10 favorite plants to grow indoors anywhere!

#3: Tomatoes

Best plants to grow in apartments and small living spaces | How to grow plants in apartments | How to grow plants indoors | Indoor gardening tips | How to start an indoor garden | How to grow vegetables indoors | How to grow tomatoes indoors | Gardening for beginners

Yes really, tomatoes. They are actually extremely easy to grow indoors and are very tolerant to a lot of indoor settings!

If you would also like to try your hand at starting them from seeds, they are an extremely good plant for beginners to grow!

On average it can take about 6-8 weeks to produce fruit from starting from a seed, but they sprout very quickly (within 1-2 weeks)! It’s extremely gratifying to me watching them grow up and it’s definitely a proud moment when they produce their first yield!

I love growing Aloe for so many reasons! First and foremost, the medicinal properties! This is almost always my go to for fixing up scrapes and cuts and works amazingly!

Aloe Vera is also a very easy plant to grow. They really only need to be watered once every three weeks and have bright, but indirect sunlight!

#5: Herbs

Best plants to grow in apartments and small living spaces | How to grow plants in apartments | How to grow plants indoors | Indoor gardening tips | How to start an indoor garden | How to grow vegetables indoors | How to grow herbs indoors | Gardening for beginners

Herbs! These are honestly our favorite household plants that we have growing. They require a little more care than most plants on this list here, but don’t let that put you off to starting your own indoor herb garden!

You can buy your own already grown herb of your choice, but we of course always recommend growing from seeds!

We’ve also already curated a post to growing & caring for your own indoor herb plants!

#6: Snake Plants

Snake plants are honestly just too cool to not grow in your apartment. They are stunning plants and a great conversation starter!

And more so, everybody will be impressed you grew your own rather than those nasty plastic ones!

They are tolerant to many indoor settings and great for beginners!

#9: Ficus Bonsai Tree

Best plants to grow in apartments and small living spaces | How to grow plants in apartments | How to grow plants indoors | Indoor gardening tips | How to start an indoor garden | How to grow vegetables indoors | How to grow ficus bonsai tree indoors | Gardening for beginners
????????????

If you are looking to get into Bonsai growing, these trees are probably the best for beginners to start off with!

They are also fairly easy to grow! They require humid environments so it would be best to have a glass tank over them that you can artificially create! Nearly full sunlight is required as well, so if you have any windows in your apartment that get more light than the rest, then that would be the place for them.

#10: African Violets

Best plants to grow in apartments and small living spaces | How to grow plants in apartments | How to grow plants indoors | Indoor gardening tips | How to start an indoor garden | How to grow vegetables indoors | How to grow african violets indoors | Gardening for beginners

In full transparency we have yet to grow African Violets yet, we aren’t actually super huge to growing flowers, but these are the one exception for us that we look forward to starting one day!

They are absolutely gorgeous and unique and would make a great centerpiece! Definitely give growing this a try and come back to let us know how it’s doing!

It’s fairly easy to overspend when shopping for your equipment, that’s why with this list I did all the research for you so you can get the most with your money, and save all the time of doing your own research.

1 – Gardening Gloves

It might be easy for you to use just any gloves in your home, but just know there are gloves and tools made for just this for a specific reason. Here are a few reasons why you should be using these gloves especially.

  1. Prevent contracting diseases from plants (tetanus, sepsis, legionellosis, sporotrichosis, etc)
  2. Bugs & snakes can live in your garden, a decent pair of gloves can protect you from most bites!
  3. Keep your hands & fingernails clean.
  4. Sharp objects, either blades or thorns can pierce into your skin very easily, so wear these to prevent injury!

2 – Watering Wand

Using the proper watering tools can be easy to undermine because why not just pour a glass of water over your plants? Well here’s why you should reconsider that method.

  1. Pouring too much water can lead to water logging plants and root rot.
  2. You can easily control how much water plants receive.
  3. Some plants don’t like having water on their leaves, and with an extended arm you can make sure you can water your plants where they need it

3 – Watering Can

Much like the wand, this proves useful when watering a larger garden and you need to be able to store a lot of water for it all. Watering cans are extremely efficient and will save you so much time in the long run if you don’t have one already.

It is so important to have a sturdy watering can that you can depend on. Often times you will find some that have leaky watering heads, they fall off, or just aren’t practical.

It’s also ideal to get a metal watering can over all else because their durability will never cease to amaze, but even a few plastic ones out there prove to be just as good.

4 – Wheelbarrow

You might be surprised just how useful a wheelbarrow turns out to be and you might use it in more ways than you originally thing.

  1. Transporting soil, mulch, and compost.
  2. Flat free tires so you don’t have to worry about changing through spares or buying more (linked below)
  3. Dual handlebars for better grip and stability when moving.
  4. Changes to a dolly and holds extensive weight.
  5. Save yourself and your back from taking multiples trips from your house to your garden.

5 – Pruning Shears

This one should be a no-brainer honestly. If you plan on pruning your vegetables, bushes, flowers and trees then you really need to invest into these pruning shears.

  1. Increases growth and fruitfulness by cutting stems away for new and healthy ones to grow.
  2. Ergonomic design and not going to cramp your hand with extended usage.
  3. Good grip handles to prevent slipping out of hand.
  4. Can cut and trim through even sturdy branches.

6 – Gardening Cultivator

These are probably one of my favorite tools to use for outdoor gardening, they make planting seeds and clearing dirt extremely easy!

  1. Makes digging dirt for seeding very quick and easy.
  2. Can pull up rocks to make room for soil and clearing room.
  3. Convenient to use for digging weeds out or unwanted plants.
  4. Very easy to use in small or tight spaces.

7 – Soil Test Kits

These tools are very underplayed in gardening but can make such a huge difference in your plants lives knowing that the soil beneath them is good enough to sustain life and thrive.

  1. See what your plants need and why they need them.
  2. Leads to healthier and happier plants in the long run.
  3. Can tell you if you need more fertilizer in your soil to make up for any nutrients it may be lacking in.
  4. Know if your plants are being over-watered or under-watered.

8 – Hand Trowel

These tools are just a blessing, honestly. They make gardening and planting your crops extremely easy and I do pretty much everything with mine.

  1. You can transplant plants safe with these.
  2. Amazing for digging holes for seeds or planters.
  3. Remove rocks and weeds from your garden.
  4. Stainless steel head for unlimited durability.

9 – Rake

This tool isn’t necessarily a need for everyone unless you live somewhere where you have trees in your yard that you care for. But here are my reasons for why you should have one.

  1. Easily move around rocks to clear a larger area for gardens.

10 – Hoe

Alas, here we are at number ten. Hoes are very useful but I wouldn’t always recommend one unless you have a larger area garden and you grow many plants and vegetables at once, if you’re just a hobby gardener, you probably won’t need one.

  1. Great for clearing a lot of area to get ready for planting.
  2. Control depth of holes you need in an area for specific plants.
  3. Clears weeds very easily.

How To Grow ANY Herb From Just ONE Stem In Water!

So you want to start a herb garden, eh? Well, you are in the right place, my friend!

I actually made a cute little PDF for you all for the basic care and requirements your favorite herbs need to thrive! It’s totally free for all of my readers so go download it and happy growing!

benefits of growing your own herbs?

  1. Well, first of all, you will save a tremendous amount of money in the long run, because (from just a quick google search), Walmart sells their fresh herbs ranging between $2-$5 each, and if you’re growing your own, then you have an endless supply of your own!
  2. Plus don’t forget that plants are just gorgeous and growing them indoors has benefits all by itself; cleaner air, reduces air-born dust, reduces carbon-dioxide levels, and more!
  3. Always have ready and fresh herbs to put on your meals!
  4. Growing them yourself puts you in charge of how they’re grown, which means that you can control the fertilizer that’s put in, the pesticides used, and overall care!

so, just how easy is growing herbs with the water jar method?

Well I’m glad you asked, I actually did a test study of this beforehand to see just for myself how practical it is to start a herb garden with this method.

Literally all you need to start is some mason jars (just because they’re transparent) that you can watch the roots grow beneath the water.

How to grow herbs in jars | Indoor gardening basics | How to start an indoor garden | Plants that don't require direct sunlight | Plants to grow in the dark | How to grow plants indoors | Gardening for beginners | Gardening tips, tricks and hacks

Like I said, simple and very efficient for home gardening.

Here’s a quick list of many of the different herbs you can grow using this method:

  1. Basil
  2. Thyme
  3. Cilantro
  4. Peppermint
  5. Lavender
  6. Catnip
  7. Chives
  8. Garlic
  9. Parsley
  10. Lemon Grass
  11. Sage
  12. Rosemary
  13. Oregano
  14. Dill
  15. Lemon Balm

Repeat this method each time your original stems grow large enough, then snip and replace again and again, and it will begin looking like this:

How to grow herbs in jars | Indoor gardening basics | How to start an indoor garden | Plants that don't require direct sunlight | Plants to grow in the dark | How to grow plants indoors | Gardening for beginners | Gardening tips, tricks and hacks

You can expect to have large enough stems to snip and replant every 2-3 weeks on average. (disclaimer: not all herbs grow the same, so be educated and look up proper care sheets for specific herbs!)

This method also gives you the perfect opportunity to start a little aquaponics garden!

How to grow herbs in jars | Indoor gardening basics | How to start an indoor garden | Plants that don't require direct sunlight | Plants to grow in the dark | How to grow plants indoors | Gardening for beginners | Gardening tips, tricks and hacks

But for the purpose of this article I’m not going to delve into aquaponics much.

If you’re only using the water jar method to eventually start a full herb garden in soil and pots, then you’ll need to keep on the lookout for growing roots in the herb jars.

It’s important to not be too impulsive, because the moment you see the first root grow, you will be super excited and want to transplant it immediately, but let me tell you this, 1 root is not enough for a very productive growth.

You will want to transplant them when the jar is covered in roots down under, I’m talking like maybe 20-30 solid roots knotted down under, that’s when you know it’ll be a good time to transplant them into their forever home.

Personally, this is what I strive for before I transplant my own herbs.

How to grow herbs in jars | Indoor gardening basics | How to start an indoor garden | Plants that don't require direct sunlight | Plants to grow in the dark | How to grow plants indoors | Gardening for beginners | Gardening tips, tricks and hacks

You will have much better results and they will grow much quicker and healthier once they’re in the soil because they have a very solid structure to come from at that point.

Herbs are also a great plant for beginners to grow! Once planted they flourish and take over your garden. One herb specifically to watch out for when planting it with others, is Peppermint.

They are extremely invasive plants and if planted with a group of other plants, they will spread and may overcome the others and get in the way of their growth as well, so if you want to plant them with another group of plants, here’s my suggestion:

This is the only way to access our community’s library of free information we provide to you all WEEKLY! What are you waiting for?

Get a decent sized pot and fill it with soil and plant your peppermint in that first, then dig a hole in the garden area you want the peppermint to be in and plant the entire pot in there, that way the pot contains the roots and spread of the herb from taking over your garden.

Be sure the pot you use doesn’t have cracks of holes in it too! Their roots grow fiercely will spread quickly, trust me.

Keep up with their basic care, and like all herbs, trim them regularly so they grow properly and continuously throughout their life!

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!

5 Best Vegetables For Beginners To Grow


5 Vegetables All Beginner Gardeners Should Grow | Gardening Basics | How to start an indoor garden | How to grow vegetables indoors | Indoor garden | How to grow plants indoors | How to grow veggies indoors | Growing vegetables for beginners | Gardening for beginners | Garden basics

Are you tight on outdoor space or just want that green home aesthetic with alive indoor plants? Whatever the case, I’m going to show you the 5 best and easiest vegetables you can begin growing in your home.

Going to kick this off with a few pointers on what you should take into consideration before beginning your indoor greenhouse,

If you are growing from seeds (which I highly recommend! Lots of fun!), you will need various container sizes and pots throughout their growth. I recommend getting at least 3 different sized pots for best growth practice. You’ll need an itsy bitsy one to start the seed out, or instead just grabbing a seed starter tray. Then as it starts to stem pretty well after 2-3 weeks, it will need to get into a pot at least about 6 inches diameter so the roots can fully expand. Then after about another month, you’ll need to move it to it’s forever-home which should be no smaller than 8-10 inches deep (mostly for plants such as tomatoes and other tall growing vegetables).

You will also need to make sure that any containers you do put your vegetables in, they have drainage holes for water! You definitely don’t want to get root rot early on because the soil doesn’t dry or have anywhere to go besides the bottom of your pot!

It should also be noted that it’s not always wise to take all of the soil from the previous pot to the next, because plants love fresh soil and if there are any harmful bacteria from the previous one, you aren’t bringing it to the next! Of course, throughout the year you definitely need to replace all of the soil in the pot with fresh new soil as well! Your plants will thank you very much for that, trust me!

I also absolutely endorse growth lights because they can play such an important role in plant’s growth from the beginning, especially if you don’t have a lot of natural light getting into your house. You can still grow your plants indoors without them, but they honestly do play a huge role in their growth because without them it might take months for them to fully blossom and produce!

If you can provide your vegetables with 4-6 hours of sunshine a day in your home, then you will have no worries with them thriving and reaching their maximum potential!

10 Indoor Plants That You Can Grow That Require No Sunlight!

Get to know me, and get free stuff. Win win.

Powered by MailChimp

Welcome back, everyone! Today we’re continuing from our last post series about PLANTS! As you will soon find out, we’re a little bit obsessed with them. But that’s okay though, right?

Let’s just jump right into it!

We’re going to go over TEN of my favorite plants that are PERFECT to grow in your home or apartment that require little to no sunlight whatsoever! These suckers are very easy to grow for beginners and not to mention they’re all absolutely GORGEOUS!

If you would like some very stylish plant pots to put these beauties in, then we highly recommend you check out our last blog post: 15 Plant Pots Under $20 You Need In Your Home Today ๐Ÿ˜‰

Stylish home decor on a budget, that’s what we’re all about.

Enough chit-chat for now, though.


Number One: Dracaena (Dracaena Massangeana)

This beautiful tree grows as a wooden stalk and sprouts it’s leaves around the tops of them! It, of course, requires minimal light and is best placed in front of closed curtains, but not in direct sunlight because direct sun can actually burn the leaves! When grown indoors it can also reach to be about 3 feet tall, so that makes it perfect for the corner of your room for a very nice accent!

Watering them as very easy as well, you only really need to lightly mist the soil and leaves and be sure to avoid making the soil soggy by any means! It does not require a lot of water to be a very happy plant! (also they don’t much like tap water, so if you can water it with purified water then it will thrive much better!)

It is also important to note that this can be toxic to dogs or cats as well so be sure it’s not in an area where they will be able to accidentally eat the leaves because it can cause them to vomit and make them a little sick.


Number Two: Parlor Palm (Chamaedorea Elegans)

I especially love these plants because they thrive in low-light! They’re slow growers and can reach up to 2-4 feet as well! Plus: they’re cat-and-dog-friendly!

Again, these do not require a lot of watering as well! They will be perfectly fine with just a light mist to their leaves. These plants also make perfect accents for tabletops or counters!

A tip of how to know how much water they need is the more sunlight they’re in, the more water they will need and so that means, the less light they receive, then the less water they will need to survive as well, which makes them perfect plants for a busy lifestyle if you aren’t able to give them constant attention!

Number Three: Umbrella Plant (Cyperus alternifolius)

These plants are so gorgeous to me and I love how the stems spread around when they start growing! They grow quickly with warm temperatures and medium to low light. Umbrella Plants can reach around 2-3 feet tall and would eventually require a larger pot when it gets older.

Once they do get a little taller and older you will also see they produce small flowers, and that is a very good indication your Umbrella Plant is being well looked after.

They have been researched to be a little toxic to animals as well and could make your small pets sick if the leaves are eaten, so be careful!

Many people also tie the stems together in the middle to prevent the plant from topping over and possibly falling later on because they can eventually get top-heavy, so keep an eye on them when they get bigger!

(side-note: these can be grown in just water as well!)


Number Four: Snake Plant (Sansevieria trifasciata)

Snake Plants are so cute! They are extremely easy to manage and care for and can live in almost any condition, making them virtually indestructible! It is also worth noting that, depending on the variety of plants you get, they can grow between 1 and 8 feet tall!

They will thrive in more sandier soils, and much like any plants, overwatering can damage them so be sure their soil is dry to the touch between waterings!

These plants look so beautiful next to entertainment centers and desks especially once they start to mature and they’re a great conversation-starter! These plants look so interesting it will definitely spark people’s interest once they see it!


Number Five: Peacock Plant (Calathea makoyana)

By the size of the picture, you can tell Peacock Plants don’t grow very large in size so that makes them perfect for desktops and office spaces! They actually really thrive in higher humidity areas, so heck, put them on your bathroom counter and they will be extremely happy living off of you just taking warm showers!

They also prefer to live in more damp soil as well, and would even like light water showers on them!

The leaves on these plants are so beautiful, and the greener the look, the more healthy they will be! Keep an eye out for browning or yellowing leaves because that can indicate they aren’t properly being cared for.

Get to know me, and get free stuff. Win win.

Number Six: Prayer Plant (Maranta Leuconeura)

Prayer Plants are actually very similar to Peacock Plants, except these ones like to spread out a little more so that really does make them perfect for hanging!

Again, these plants do require moist soil to really thrive and be healthy so be sure their soil is constantly damp. (you could also include these in your bathroom because they like humid areas as well!)

Make sure their pot also has a place to drain water because their roots can actually begin to rot if it sits in their too long without draining!

You will also notice that the less sunlight this beauty gets, the greener their leaves will be, and too much or direct sunlight itself will bleach the leaves!


Number Seven: Spider Plant (Chlorophytum comosum)

Spider Plants are so unique for their gorgeous leaves! They grow a vibrant green with white stripes down the center of them!

As these are beginning to grow, water these only occasionally but once they start maturing they will need to be watered a bit more often.

They do not like direct sunlight whatsoever, so these are near perfect plants to grow in your home! Or if you have well-shaded areas outside they will also be very happy in there!

Spider Plants produce whats called “pups” and essentially this is their seeds that you can snip off and replant to continue your garden!


Number Eight: Peace Lily (Spathiphyllum)

These are one of my all-time favorite indoor plants. I am so obsessed with their green leaves and white lily flowers! They’re just all-around gorgeous plants. By the way, they’re also recognized as one of the best indoor air cleaning plants!

You will see them grow between 1 and 4 feet tall and they will start producing their lilies in the Spring for about 2 months.

Very important to note that these are poisonous to cats and dogs and can really make one of your furry critters very ill and unhappy! So please be VERY careful when choosing the location for your Peace Lily!

Your plant will also communicate to you, in the sense when it will show you when it needs to be watered each time. You will notice the stems start to sag down a little bit and that is a very good indication they’re thirsty! So keep an eye out for that throughout your week and water them when needed!


Number Nine: Philodendron (Philodendron bipinnatifidum)

Philodendrons are one of my personal favorite house plants as well because of their hanging vines! You can choose to put this on a table or desk but personally, I would end up hanging them up once their branches really start spreading!

They do like bright indirect light as well, so not next to your window of course but maybe on the other side of your room where a window mirrors it and can feed off of that light. Sunlight isn’t required, you could grow these very happily in places that get little to no sunlight as well and will be happy year-around!

You can tell when they need water as well just by how damp their soil is, check it periodically and if the top inch of soil is dry, it might be a good time to put a little bit of water on it.

Get to know me, and get free stuff. Win win.

Number Ten: Radiator Plants (Peperomia)

This plant is a bit similar to both Prayer Plants & Peacock Plants with the design on their leaves, but I actually prefer these ones over both of these just with how these look! They really do have an almost watermelon look to their leaves that I am obsessed with.

There are very many different varieties of this plant available that differ in the look each of them has! Some can have darker, almost red-like leaves, while others will have a bright white and green design!

They can live and adjust to nearly any light level you grow them in! They can live happily and healthily in any environment! But be careful with watering them though, because it can be easy to overdo it and accidentally rot the plants.

Water them thoroughly and then wait until the majority of the soil has mostly dried, and depending on the season, they could require much less water than normal, so do your research beforehand!


But wait, there’s more!

I want to just discuss the types of soil you should check out before getting some of these plants as well because it does play a huge role in your plant growth based on the soil they’re living with, all soils are not versatile for all plants!

If you have a variety of plants grown indoors and outdoors, it is very important to know that you cannot scoop pre-existing soil from outside to use for indoor plants! That soil contains bacterias that will harm your plants!

There are 4 major types of soil you need to do some research on to see which best fits the plant you’re looking to grow in your home! These types are:

  • Loam Soil – Containers higher calcium and pH levels with a gritty texture to them.
  • Sandy Soil – It is the largest particle based soil and allows for proper water drainage.
  • Clay Soil – You might want to go with clay pebbles with this because naturally, clay soil does not drain easily (which some plants do need actually).
  • Silt Soil – This is very fertile soil, and the downside to this is that it retains water too well, so be very careful to not accidentally waterlog your plants!

I cannot stress enough though, do your research before you get your plant to see which soil best fits and will benefit your plant the most. I provided links to some soils above that I looked into for each of the categories that I believe will be best for your plants in those sections.

Get to know me, and get free stuff. Win win.

15 Cheap Plant Pots Under $20 You Need In Your Home Today


Hello Everyone! Today we’re going to go over 15 of our favorite deals on Plant Pot Sets on a budget!


Incorporating plants into your home can change the entire way people see your place; they look gorgeous and spice up any normally boring atmospheres!

Don’t have a nightstand or small table? Throw a tall fern there! Some empty space on your work desk or dining table? Some small succulents would look amazing there! They make a great centerpiece and It’s always something to be proud of when you start to realize how much they’ve grown and thrived since you’ve had them!

And I mean, after all, they do provide us the necessary oxygen we kinda need to continue living so if that’s not enough of an excuse then I don’t know what is.

but let’s continue, shall we?

Number One: This is a 2 (or THREE) piece plant pot, I love the cement look on these and I think it definitely adds in an industrialized look to your home. They also come with little raised bamboo platforms! How awesome!


Number Two: This 3 piece plant pot set also comes with this cute wooden raised holding tray! (don’t worry this blog post isn’t going to be just for succulents, these are just really cute) And they’re literally $13.99! Talk about a bargain right there!


Number Three: This is a SIX PIECE plant potter set! Perfect for seed germinations and just starting out some plants before you transport them to their larger home later one! Or of course to start growing a series of small succulents!


Number Four: A Three piece plant pot set for different sized plants! These guys look amazing together and you can grow different plant’s in each of them and start your own little indoor garden!


Number Five: A 4.5-inch plant pot! This is the PERFECT size for that table and desk decor we mentioned earlier! Add that home-y feel to your workspace with this and start growing yourself a cast-iron plant!


Number Six: Another awesome centerpiece! This one comes with either the gold frame or a solid black! Looks totally urban and modern and I am HERE for it! Again, put this puppy in the middle of your table or workplace!


Number Seven: A 4-tier hanging plant potter?! I am absolutely going to put this in my kitchen and grow fresh herbs for when we make meals! Each of the pots is 3.5-inches tall so that makes it the perfect planter for indoor gardening without taking up any floor or desk space!


Number Eight: Much like Number 3 on our list today we have another wood-held plant carrier but with metal pots and sleek design! This is perfect for a runner table or on a shelf! Let your little cacti shine!


Number Nine: Absolutely ADORE these marbled planters! This amazing set comes with 4 different pots to put your precious little plants in! I am absolutely putting these in a row on my bookshelf next to my salt lamp!


Number Ten: OBSESSED with this cement planter! I definitely want to own a set to hang in front of my windows and let the sun shine on them! I really want to put a string of pearls plant in them and let them dangle down!


Number Eleven: I love how modern and chic these look! If you have a predominantly white and clean finish to your home I think these would be the perfect look you’ve been looking for! The wooden trays included really wrap up the whole feel these bring as well.


Number Twelve: This is so beautiful. Period. I love water plants and watching them grow and seeing their roots spread around beneath them. This would be super neat on a coffee table in the center of the room, definitely a conversation starter!


Number Thirteen: More hanging plants! I want these in my kitchen window growing peppermint to make my entire kitchen smelling amazing! Fun-fact though, plants growing in these “biospheres” require minimum care! (depending on which plant grows inside) The moisture it produces inside actually can take care of the plant for weeks on end!


Number Fourteen: Love this minimalistic look! The black stands with the marble pots look so clean together! Start growing a jade plant in here and you’d have such a nice finish!


Number Fifteen: Alright this is the last one we’ve got for today! This adorable little is perfect for styling your shelves! The geometric designs on them and the bamboo platforms create a perfect modern look to finish off decorating your room!

Well, that’s all we’ve got for you today! Thank you so much for stopping by to read through our Top 15 Plant Pot Sets! If you found value from this it would mean the world to us if you re-pinned this and shared it with your friends!
