Photographs, figurines, and paintings can only go so far in the interior decoration process. That is why people should start looking at indoor plants while on their quest to decorate their living space. Sure, they come with a little management, but there is nothing wrong with taking care of a little plant! Besides, you might actually love it and turn gardening into a hobby.
People are always looking for ways to boost the interiors of their homes. Whether it is to impress their friends/family, or to make their home feel a little homier, decorations are a great way to do that, but plants, especially indoor plants, they just provide a different boost to a home.
4 Beautiful Indoor Plants for Beginners To Start With
There are a ton of indoor plants that would make wonderful additions to your residence. When shopping around for indoor plants you need to also bear in mind which ones are safe for young children and of course pets. While there are always preferences for everyone, here are just a few examples:
Cacti and Succulents
Succulents are thick and fleshy plants that are typically small and compact. They are used to dry climates, so they do not require a lot of maintenance due to their propensity to absorb as much water and soil as possible. Cacti fall into the same category, the difference is- as you probably know- is that they are a little spikier. Regardless, they are very small, cute, low-maintenance plants that would be a great addition to any area of your home.
But seriously, who would not want a little heart-shaped succulent (called the sweetheart plant) in their home. Got to share the love, people!
“Daniel-san, Bonsai have strong root, same as you.” – The Late Mr. Miyagi – Karate Kid
The first time I heard about Bonsai Trees was watching the movie Karate Kid. Mr. Miyagi taught Daniel a lot of life lessons while teaching him how to trim and shape the Bonsai. If you are looking for a unique and beautiful plant, Bonsai is definitely the way to go.
Another plant that can be used for interior decoration is bonsai trees. Bonsai trees do come with a little more maintenance than cacti and succulents, but it isn’t anything someone wouldn’t be able to handle.
Now there are bonsai trees that are big enough to go outside, but here we are talking strictly indoor plants. But either way, bonsai trees are fun, colorful, and unique compared to most plants. The curvature that comes along with some bonsai plants can look amazing! It would be a mistake on your part if you refrained from putting these in your living space.
A coffee plant?! Yes, a coffee plant!
But before you get your hopes up, this does not mean you will have your own personal coffee shop in your home. Sure, the plant does produce some beans that you are able to pick off, but that might take three to maybe even five years.
Still, these plants are beautiful and radiate a vibrant green color and would be worth the time and effort you’d have to put into it. Which at the end of the day, isn’t all that much work. Just a little water and sunlight will do the trick.
Begonia plants are very unique to the other plants on this list. They come in all different shapes, sizes, colors, etcetera. You can snag a plant with polka dots on it or a begonia with more of a flower element to it. Either way, they are beautiful little plants that are guaranteed to make people stop and stare.
