Which Plants are Best for Interior Home Décor?
When it comes to choosing beautiful indoor plants, you need to make sure the plants you pick can survive in low light. Picking plants that can thrive in low amounts of light ensures that your home will remain looking wonderful all year round. A lot of indoor plants require hardly any maintenance and are extremely resilient, so you don't really have to worry about your lack of gardening skills.
Dracaena Corn Plant
Dracaenas require less water than most indoor plants to survive, which make them the ideal choice for a low maintenance, yet gorgeous house plant. Dracaena Corn Plants are native to Madagascar and bringing them into your home adds a little tropical element - wherever you may be. When kept indoors, these plants will only grow to be around three feet, which makes them the perfect choice for small interiors. The dramatic foliage with beautiful color patterns means that Dracaenas can work with pretty much any color scheme.
Bromeliads are a beautiful choice that add an unusual twist to any home. Despite their exotic, unusual look, bromeliads aren't challenging to care for. You don't need any special gardening skills, so they're suitable for any home. The thick foliage circles a beautiful rosette that will begin to grow towards the end of the plant's life. One of the best things about the bromeliad plant is that the flowers they produce come in a wide range of colors. Orange, red, pink, or yellow flowers mean you can find a bromeliad that will match perfectly with your interior design.
Money Trees are simple and easy house plants that help bring a touch of the outdoors into your home. While they do look understated from afar, the unusual braided trunk is a charming feature that helps set this plant apart from other similar looking plants. In their natural habitat, Money Trees can grow to an incredible 60 feet. Thankfully, indoor variants will only reach between three and six feet before they stop growing. Money Trees are relatively low maintenance plants that only really need to be watered. However, in spring months it's advised to apply fertilizer on a monthly basis.
Braided Madagascar Dragon Tree
As the name would suggest, these trees originate from Madagascar but they'll do just fine growing inside your home. The red-tinged foliage of the Braided Madagascar Dragon Tree will add a warming glow to any room of your home. This plant has a reputation of being one of the easiest indoor plants to grow and maintain. As such, it's the perfect choice for people who want to decorate their home with plants but don't have very good gardening skills. These plants can last for well over a decade so are a good choice if you're looking for something to last.

With the impressive range that we stock, there's sure to be something to match the interior design of your home that will help you to improve your indoor space.
