When the temperatures are soaring outside, I work on adding to my collection of indoor plants! Houseplants are a great addition to any decor and can improve indoor air quality! There are a range of plant selections for low light locations to bright and sunny that reduce formaldehyde, benzene and carbon monoxide in your home.

A good low light, low water is Zamia furfuracea also known as Cardboard Palm Tree. Sansevieria Laurentii or Snake Plant, Mother-In-Law’s Tongue has similar requirements to Zamia. These two plants are a favorite of mine because they require little attention! Another favorite of mine is Dypsis lutescens common name Areca Palm. This plant isn’t always easy to find so when you do, buy three and plant them all together for a fuller look. Ficus elastica commonly known as Rubber plant does well indoor but needs morning sun or bright light. Dracaena Marginata/Marginata, Dracaena Massangeana/Corn Plant, and Dracaena/Janet Craig are a few others that can fill a corner for some height.

Once you determine your watering schedule, usually every five to seven days, make sure to mark it on your schedule/calendar! I recommend choosing one day of the week to water all of your plants. Consistent watering reduces plant stress and gives you healthy beautiful foliage!

I have a few boards posted on my Pinterest page showing other indoor plant selections.
