Indoor Blooms to Brighten Your Home This Winter
Houseplants can be one of the easiest ways to transform a living space. The benefits of plants, indoors and out, extend far beyond aesthetics.They can provide environmental benefits and help ease seasonal depression during the colder months. Also, believe it or not, many types of plants flourish in winter. Yes, winter! From simple succulents to resilient potted greenery, here are some plants that will survive and thrive during the holiday season (and beyond).
Are you a first-time plant parent? The sansevieria laurentii, also known as the snake plant, is a low-maintenance winter plant that’s perfect for beginners. This nearly indestructible plant rarely needs repotting, can handle a lower light frequency, and can even survive in a windowless room.
What’s glossy, easy to care for, and adaptable to less than ideal conditions? Check out the ZZ plant. Besides the cacti, the ZZ plant is the most drought tolerant plant. This common houseplant can also tolerate low light and experiences new growth pretty often.
White Christmas Plant
The Schlumbergera cactus (also known as the The White Christmas Plant) is a plant that blooms beautiful white or red flowers between November and January. They prefer protection from direct sunlight, which makes it the perfect cacti to use as a centerpiece for your festive dinner party.
Are you a gardener with a brown thumb? Now is the time to get better acquainted with the cast-iron plant (Aspidistra elatior). This gorgeous plant has deep green, glossy leaves that can reach around two feet long and four inches wide. The cast-iron plant boasts a reputation for being hard-to-kill and can thrive in a wide range of soils, as long as they have good drainage.
Add some green to your home with Pothos! They do well in bright, indirect light as well as low light and can grow in dry soil or vases of water. If you want this robust plant to grow quicker, you can fertilize it once every three months.
Native to South Africa, this rosette-shaped succulent is one of the easiest houseplants to take care of during winter or any time of the year. A tiny, but tough plant, it can thrive in both direct and indirect sunlight, and it tolerates dry air. Always forget to water your plants? Don’t sweat it, your Haworthia will only need to be watered once every few weeks.
We hope you consider adopting one or more of these standout plants to help brighten up your home during the winter months.
