As the coronavirus pandemic dwindles down and businesses have reopened, renovation and home decor have become a popular pastime for many. While big statement furniture or ornament pieces can be adventurous, sometimes a simple touch of green is all that is needed to clean the air for a healthier, happier space.
Bold, beautiful, and easy to maintain, they freshen up any room and even make great gifts!

Split Leaf (Monstera Deliciosa)

These amazing tropical plants are not only low on maintenance, they can grow tall – over 8 feet tall. They are also called “Swiss cheese plants” for the holes in their large leaves. Drought-friendly, they only require water once a week, plenty of sunshine, and a bit of room to grow sideways.

Rubber Tree (Ficus Elastica)

The biggest concern when investing in a houseplant is the amount of care they need. Not with the Rubber Tree! Just dust off the glossy leaves, water when the soil is dry to touch and let it sit in indirect sunlight. That’s it!

Areca Palm (Dypsis Lutescens)

Native to Madagascar, these bamboo-like palm trees are now commonly used as houseplants to create a fresh tropical backdrop. While capable of reaching over 30 feet in height in the wild, they seldomly grow disproportionally tall indoors. They enjoy being placed by a well-lit window. Water moderately, as with most palm varieties.

Elephant’s Foot (Beaucarnea Recurvata)

With their stumpy base and long flowy recurved leaves flowing down from a tight bunch, they are also known as the Ponytail Palm. The plant is drought-tolerant, hardy to low temperatures (but not for very long below freezing), and not choosy of the type of room in which they live.

Dwarf Umbrella Tree (Schefflera Arboricola)

Highly adaptable to a wide range of living spaces, these tropical shrubs originate from Taiwan and are also pruned as bonsai trees. However, extra safety precautions must be made in households with pets or small children, as the leaves and fruits it sometimes bear are toxic.

Make Your Living Space Green

Ornamental plants are an often overlooked element of home decor. As work-from-home and hybrid schedules become the norm for the foreseeable future, it is important to create an environment in which it is both pleasant to live and to be productive. And what better solution is there than making that space green?
