Tropical Plants

Not everyone is blessed with a green thumb. No matter how hard you try, your plants never seem to thrive. Or, you may not have the time and energy to properly care for indoor tropical plants but you desperately want the beauty and the clean air benefits that they provide. Luckily, there are several easy-care indoor tropical plants that will thrive in all types of conditions. Here are just four of these plants that you should consider.

Rubber Tree

The Rubber Tree is an excellent option if you are looking to add some colour and contrast to a large corner in your home. This beautiful indoor plant comes in many types, allowing you to find the colour, size, and height that you desire for any area in your house. This plant needs some sunlight each day but direct UV rays will hurt its growth. And, if you are a frequent traveler or away from home often, the Rubber Tree is ideal as it can go several days with no water.

Peace Lily

If you are looking to add some unique texture and lots of colour to a space, the Peace Lily should be at the top of your list. This gorgeous plant fits in well with a variety of home decor and design trends, making it a very versatile option. The Peace Lily is another plant that requires some sunlight to bloom and it doesn’t require daily watering — just enough to keep the soil moist.

Dumb Crane

If you are looking to add rich green colours to a table, corner of a room, or another area in your home, the Dumb Crane is a popular option. This is one of the many tropical indoor plants that can live in low light conditions. It should not be placed in dark areas, but shaded areas will help this indoor plant flourish. And when watering this plant, simply give it a deep watering and then let it dry out over for several days.

Chinese Evergreen

If you are looking for one of the easiest tropical plants to grow indoors, the Chinese Evergreen is a must. This plant features thick green leaves that provide some colour to a floor area or even to a desk or side table. It is an indoor tropical plant that does well in low-light and sunny areas. It is also very resilient and can handle frequent waterings or go several days without it.
