5 Easy Indoor Plants

Since it’s National Indoor Plant Week this week, I thought I’d show you a few easy indoor plants to inspire you to add some greenery to your home. I have a bunch of indoor plants around my house, they really do add depth and life to any room – and they purify the air too! Below are my top five picks for indoor plants, as well as light and water requirements. And here are a few more houseplant suggestions.


Maidenhair Fern

Light:  Low light
Watering:  High humidity and consistent moisture (I water mine daily!)
More info on Maidenhair fern here.

Light:  Medium light
Watering:  Moist soil, but tolerant if you forget every now and then. (You can water into the stem where the leaves form a little cup at the base, above the soil. It’s actually a good idea to keep some water in that “cup.”)

  1. These are all BEAUTIFUL Whitney!! I have a small “window” garden and I have been dying to add some new plants, thank you for sharing these, I have a new *plant* list to work with!!

  2. Wow i really never seen the Orange Prince tree before, I will definitely try to learn more about it. I just love using the Zebra Plant though because of those color vines.
