Just because winter tends to be on the gloomy side doesn’t mean your home has to be! Houseplants have grown in popularity over the last few years and are an easy way to infuse your living spaces with vibrant colors and fun textures. They also provide other benefits, too, including purifying the air and helping with home odors.
Are you a budding gardenista who is looking for greenery that will survive during the winter season? From minimal sunlight to infrequent waterings, we’ve found some beautiful blooms that will thrive during the coldest season of the year.
The Corn Plant (also know as Dracaena fragrans) is a tropical African evergreen tree that doesn’t need direct sunlight to thrive, which makes it the perfect winter bloom. This low maintenance plant is toxic to pets though, so if you have furry family members, please pass on the Corn Plant.
Are you a new plant parent? The Snake Plant is perfect for beginners because it is nearly indestructible! This long and lanky plant thrives in full sunlight or partial shade and rarely needs re-potting. The only thing that makes this hardy plant unhappy is overwatering.
You knew this plant would make the list, right? The cactus is a unique plant, and a decorative way to add interest to your living space. Because of its ability to store water and nutrients, cactuses are low-maintenance and require less watering to survive the winter months.
Create major plant envy by showcasing the Phalaenopsis Orchid in your home. This monopodial orchid is beautiful, and can survive happily for months with low light. Just make sure to water the plant weekly.
Chinese evergreens come in a variety of colors, shapes, and sizes! For being a tropical plant, Chinese evergreens do really well in cold and dry environments. Make sure to wipe the leaves every so often to prevent bugs from latching onto the plant.
Prone to forgetting to water your plants? The Aloe Plant holds water in its thick leaves so it can go long stretches between waterings. This stunning succulent does need to be near a light source, so keeping it close to a window or sunny spot in your home is best.
We hope this list of indoor houseplants inspires you to head to your local nursery to find your perfect bloom.
