by theskfeed

Luxurious interiors and everything is okay, but how remarkable do you think it is to be able to connect with nature? That too while being in the comfort of your couch! Whether you’re on a look out for fancy interiors or just adding a touch of liveliness to a somber room. Indoor trees for home is the best option you’ve got in hand. Besides being excellent stress busters, some indoor trees purify the air and improve sleep quality.

Well, houseplants are so therapeutic and of course cost way lesser than a therapist, don’t they?! Trust me, I have experienced this first hand since I moved into my apartment in Swasthya Vihar. So it’s time to breathe some life into your home and turn it into a magnificent lush paradise.

These beautiful indoor trees instantly liven up any dull room. Requiring medium to high levels of humidity this beauty can thrive in low light. You can either place your Parlour Palm near a window or a lowlight corner. The houseplant slowly adapts and grows at its own pace.

Parlour Palms could also adorn your bathroom exquisitely.

The Rubber trees are native to South and Southeast Asia. Start with young plants to allow them to adapt as houseplants. You sure are aware of the huge heights they can shoot up to. To restrict those heights you should use smaller pots.  

Bright indirect light is ideal for the broad shiny leaves to grow healthily. And don’t forget to mist the leaves during the summer months. But don’t overdo it. The right care in place and you’ll have a happy space.

Jade plant is a succulent that need not be nourished with water regularly. Just be sure to allow the top layer of the soil to dry out between your watering schedules. Overwatering will turn the leaves of this houseplant yellow which subsequently fall off. 

Also be mindful as ASPCA mentions that the Jade plants are toxic to cats and dogs.

If you run tight schedules with little time in hand for your green babies, then here’s a tree for you. The Madagascar dragon tree requires minimal care. Too much or too little light can be a problem for these indoor trees for home. Hence, be a little considerate and place it somewhere that receives moderate amounts of sunlight. 

If you notice any brown spots on the leaves, it means the plant is not getting enough water. Nothing to worry. As soon as the problem is solved, these houseplants will be happier than ever.

Placing ficus trees next to windows facing the east is the best. It requires bright indirect light and evenly moist soil. 

Add an edge to your living room by planting your Alii Ficus in attractive self-watering planters.
