The most stylish indoor plants

Houseplants with exaggerated leaf sizes or intriguing colors add elegance to your home and are inexpensive.But which ones are more stylish? Let's forget the succulents for now, especially the mother-in-law's tongue. Here are the most outstanding houseplants that can serve as a work of art.

The Areca Palm is a very elegant palm that exudes a tropical flair and is therefore popular with plant lovers and interior designers. Its foliage exudes exotic vibes and commands attention with its lush and beautiful leaves that brighten indoor spaces.It is also known as the gold palm, butterfly palm or yellow palm. The Areca Palm is a stunning houseplant native to Madagascar and a member of the Arecaceae family. Outdoors, she can grow up to 30 feet tall and tends to average 6 to 8 feet indoors.It is also considered one of the most efficient air cleans plants as it absorbs toxins from the air. In addition, the Areca palm is non-toxic, so safe for children and pets, making it perfect as a houseplant. If you're growing her indoors, place her under bright, indirect sunlight.The leaves turn yellowish-green in direct sunlight. Plant in well-drained soil and a pot with drainage holes. Root rot is their biggest killer, but this can be avoided properly by not keeping the soil wet. Allow the top of the soil to dry out between waterings and water less frequently during the cold season.

A fiddle fig tree has large leaves, which means little leaf drop to clean up, and with some good light and a regular watering schedule, they're fairly easy to care for. Just wipe their leaves with a damp cloth from time to time to help them with photosynthesis. Placed in one of our large Upole fiberglass pots, the tree really makes a statement in any home.I would recommend the Fiddle Leaf if you have a nice bright window in your living room or a large atrium or entryway to your home. You can prune the ficus to give it a shape that suits your style, either single trunk for tight spaces or encourage multiple trunks to give the tree a real 'outside in' feel. Some people panic when they get how often a large plant drops a few leaves in its new environment, but this is normal. I always tell people that it takes time to learn how to properly care for plants. But don't give up – my journey only started five years ago and now I have about 100 plants in my house.

Monstera Deliciosa is one of the most amazing plants you can have in your home or office. Monsteras have natural dramatic holes in their leaves that make them look like cheese, hence the nickname "Swiss cheese plant" or "split-leaf philodendron." With its large, tropical leaves, it continues to be a star, posted on social media feeds and seen in interior designers' rooms. The holes give it an extra stylish vibe, making it a favorite for many Houses. This handsome floor plant will make a statement in your home and fill it up empty, dull corners thus serve a decorative purpose. Aside from its beauty, it is a living air purifier. Luckily, you don't have to be a plant pro to keep a Monstera alive. It's straightforward and perfect for both beginners and experienced users plant parents alike. Place your Monstera in bright indirect sun and water about once a week. Your Monstera plant can develop aerial roots. Add support with a moss stick to keep it upright. A point of caution for those with pets; The Monstera plant contains calcium oxalate crystals which are toxic to cats and dogs if ingested.

Chinese evergreen.Are you a fan of house plants with fabulous foliage? Then the Chinese evergreen to you. As the name suggests, this plant's leaves are evergreen, bloom with pretty white flowers, and can grow up to three feet tall, making it a focal point in any room. It is also suitable as a table plant. Its foliage comes in different varieties of Silver Bay, Emerald Beauty, Maria, Golden Bay and Silver Queen.I recommend Chinese Evergreen because it's low maintenance, making it perfect for new plant owners. It is also said to bring good luck to the home in which it is placed. Plus, it's a heartwarming gift for someone you love.In practice, it gives off oxygen that helps increase productivity and enrich health in living and working spaces. The Chinese evergreen houseplant does best in filtered light to partial shade, but never in direct sunlight. As she tends to be root bound because she grows so quickly it is advisable to keep her in a large pot to give her enough space to grow. Water it when the soil is dry (use your thumb or a stick to check the soil). Prune the plant for propagation and snip off the occasional lower yellow leaf to keep the plant healthy.
