There is a vast selection of indoor plants to choose from. You might prefer the simple elegance of green plants, or perhaps you’re drawn to more vibrant, colorful varieties. You could even mix and match, creating a unique indoor garden in every room of your house. Use your creativity in selecting the plants and the vases they reside in.

Let’s delve into some of the best indoor plants that can enhance your home’s design and improve your quality of life.

String of Pearls | Senecio Rowleyanus

The String of Pearls Plant, scientifically known as Senecio Rowleyanus, is a beauty that can be planted in a hanging pot. One of the most popular houseplants, it truly resembles a string of pearls, with succulent orb-shaped leaves that create a stunning display when hung from an elevated position.

Similar to this plant are the String of Bananas and String of Hearts. The only difference lies in the shape of their leaves. Choose the one that appeals most to you!

Silver Dollar | Lunaria Annua

The Silver Dollar plant, also known as the money plant, grows vertically. Avoid placing it in cramped spaces. Instead, put it where there is ample vertical space for it to truly stand out. It can be situated anywhere in the house, thriving in both sun and shade, though it favors the former. This plant is easy to care for, requiring watering only about once a week.

Jade | Crassula Ovata

Although the Jade plant may resemble a bush, it doesn’t have to grow that large. This plant is available in compact sizes to fit comfortably in any space. Its small leaves lend it an elegant simplicity, making it a versatile addition to any room. With its tree-like appearance, the Jade plant is a beautiful indoor option, perfect for decorative use.

This plant thrives in the hot, dry conditions typical of most homes. Remember to water it more frequently during the growing season (spring and summer) and keep it drier during fall and winter.

Oxalis | Oxalidaceae

If you’re looking for a dash of color, the Oxalis Plant might be perfect for you. It starts off with a stunning red hue, which can deepen to a dark red or bluish-purple as it grows. This sun-loving plant should be placed in the brightest room you have.

Oxalis, being small in size, adds vitality to a space without dominating it, making it a popular houseplant choice.

Aloe Vera 

Aloe Vera, with its distinctive, springy leaves, comes in various sizes. It’s not only loved for its aesthetics but also for its low-maintenance nature, air-purifying capabilities, and the health benefits offered by its gel.


Cacti come in a tremendous variety of colors and sizes. Some even bloom, although this is more common outdoors. A particular species that we recommend for its charming appearance is the Bunny Ear Cactus, which becomes even more endearing as it grows.

Cacti prefer indirect sunlight, so avoid placing them directly in a window. They are low-maintenance houseplants and don’t require frequent watering, thanks to their natural ability to store water.

Peace Lily | Spathiphyllum wallisii

The beautiful white leaf of a Peace Lily sets it apart from other plants. For the lily to bloom, it requires adequate light, even if it’s indirect.

It’s one of the most common types of houseplants and very easy to care for.

Dumb Cane | Dieffenbachia

Known as Comigo-Ninguém-Pode in Portugal, Dumb Cane is a low-light houseplant. These plants grow tall and sport thick, wide leaves with a slightly lighter interior. Owing to these characteristics, it is advisable to place them in a spacious area where they can truly stand out.

Peperomia | Piperaceae

Peperomia is considered an easy-care indoor plant because it doesn’t require much water. Rather, it thrives on indirect sunlight. Position it in a well-lit room, which is what it needs to grow. There are hundreds of different varieties of Peperomia plants. One of the most well-known varieties bears a resemblance to Dumb Cane.


For a more aesthetically pleasing arrangement, avoid clustering all your indoor plants in one spot. Consider hanging some in planters and distributing others around different areas of your home. Don’t limit yourself to similar-style or same-color pots; instead, match them to the plant and the room’s design where they’ll be placed.
