Big Indoor Plants You Can Keep In Your Home

Aug 29

Towering indoor plants may be used to cover bare corners, towering walls, or just to make a bold impression in any home.

These plants might be mature, large-scale plants or indoor trees.

They may be arranged either alone or collectively to provide a lovely living space.

There are several kinds of huge indoor plants to pick from, depending on the interior design theme of your house. For instance, you should acquire palm trees or Birds of Paradise Plants if you want to give your modest city apartment a tropical feel. If you like a more minimalistic aesthetic and live in a more contemporary house, you should choose tall cacti, such Euphorbias.

Tall indoor plants and indoor trees may be expensive to acquire. Therefore, it's crucial to do some research to find the plants that are most suited to your way of life and surroundings. Tall and large-scale plants that are low-maintenance, low-light, non-toxic, and air-purifying are available to satisfy your needs.

Thankfully, buying big, tall indoor plants doesn't require stealing a bank. I have purchased large, high-quality trees and plants from IKEA, Walmart, and Home Depot all at affordable costs. (IKEA sold me a Birds of Paradise Plant a few months ago, and I couldn't be happier with it.) It has continued to grow and unfold one new leaf after another since I got it home!).

These are my favorite tall indoor plants since they are hardy, appealing, and need little upkeep.

 

MILK TREE

The tallest indoor plant that requires the least upkeep is the African Milk Tree. For this plant to live, only bright light will do.

I've had mine for a while, and it's survived years of neglect while I was completely preoccupied with my kids and my full-time job.

As was previously said, this succulent does well in bright light.

One watering per month should be plenty for plants cultivated inside.

Remember that if you overwater this plant, it will die.

This is a great indoor tall plant for those with bad green fingers, novice gardeners, and busy people who don't have much time to care for plants.


DRAGON TREE FROM MADAGASCAR

Dragon trees, sometimes known as dracaenas, are tall indoor plants that need little maintenance.

Both people who are very busy and those who are new to gardening should use them.

For these plants, low to moderate light levels are excellent. If the sun is on its leaves for a lengthy amount of time, the leaves will burn.

Dracaenas don't need a lot of irrigation since they can withstand droughts. Overwatering is among the most frequent causes of plant mortality. Depending on how much light it receives, this plant may need watering up to three times a week.

Dracaenas are fluoride-sensitive plants, therefore it's best to use distilled water to water them if your tap water has a lot of fluoride.

By eliminating formaldehyde, xylene, and trichloroethylene from the air, this plant functions as an air cleanser.

 

FIGURE OF A FIDDLE LEAF

Floppy Leaf Fiddle Leaf Figs are available as both little and tall indoor plants.

Large trees, as opposed to palms, birds of paradise, and other tall plants, are more costly and harder to find than smaller plants.

Once you find the perfect site and understand the watering schedule, fiddle leaf figs are easy to grow and manage.

My fiddle leaf fig tree has been in my possession for thirteen years. It appears to like soaking up the early light by facing our window that faces south. For these plants to flourish, a lot of bright light is necessary.

I water mine once a week from spring through fall and fertilize it with liquid fertilizer.


A SWISS CHEESE PLANT

Monsteras may grow to be very large in addition to being towering houseplants. In any environment, they leave a lasting impact. They need a lot of room to be exhibited.

These tropical plants trail from containers or ascent poles and trellises at a rapid rate. When it reaches maturity, you'll see that it has trailing aerial roots, which make it very simple to spread and trim.

For Swiss cheese plants, moderate to indirect bright light is optimum. Too much light and direct sunshine will cause its gorgeous leaves to turn yellow.

A steady stream of moderate watering is required for this plant. I water my plants once a week or when the top soil starts to become dry. To maintain this plant at the right humidity level, I also advise regular spraying.

Outside the north-facing window of our living room, my Monstera, one of the tall indoor plants. I've seen a noticeable growth in size ever since I relocated it to this lighter spot in our home.

 

PINE OF NORFOLK ISLAND

Norfolk pines are beautiful, tall interior trees with lush foliage.

These plants are often only seen during the Christmas season, when they are decorated with tiny ornaments and a dusting of glitter. Most people are unaware that Norfolk pines are tropical trees, sensitive to cold, and dependent on high humidity levels.

Norfolk Pines benefit from bright light. They benefit from several hours in direct sunshine and flourish in strong indirect light. These plants flourish in areas with south-facing windows and doors.

Never allow them dry out between waterings; just water them when the top soil feels dry to the touch (I water mine once a week).

You have two options for maintaining the high humidity levels that this plant needs to thrive: either place it on a pebble tray with water in it or regularly mist it with water.


PALM ARECA

Areca palms and other palms, like the Parlor Palm, need quite different levels of maintenance, so be cautious not to mix them up!

Areca palms do not thrive in low-light conditions and demand strong indirect light. However, these plants' leaves may turn yellow if exposed to excessive amounts of direct sunshine!

The soil has to be kept moist between waterings, therefore this is not a plant that can be neglected. Ensure that the ground is not totally dry!

These palms may be expensive if bought as indoor tall plants when they reach their maximum height of 6 to 7 feet, but since they grow swiftly (6 inches to 10 inches per year), you can choose a tabletop size and let it grow!

Areca palms are a fantastic way to add a tropical flare and wow factor to your home!

By eliminating formaldehyde, benzene, carbon monoxide, xylene, and trichloroethylene from the air, this plant also serves as an air cleaner.


PARADISE BIRD

The Birds of Paradise are without a doubt my favorite indoor tall plant.

In my perspective, this is the definition of a tropical plant. For me, growing and caring for it is simple. It develops stunning unfolding leaves and advances swiftly.

It's a pretty plant that looks great both by itself and in a green space within your home with other plants. When combined with a Fiddle Leaf Fig, as I did, the outcome is quite stunning.

It's a very adaptable plant that does well in both low and strong light.

Strelitzias prefer somewhat moist, but not too, soil. I water it once a week from spring to fall, then wait until the top few inches are completely dry before watering it again in the winter. Instead of overwatering this plant, it is better to keep it dry.

This tropical plant will benefit from regular spraying to help it maintain the humidity levels it needs to flourish since it is a tropical plant.

 

These are without a doubt my favorite tall indoor plants. I chose these seven plants because I've had experience with them and because they're easy to manage.

Other tall indoor plant options include Parlor Palms, Lady Palms, Yucca Trees, Rubber Plants, and Umbrella Plants.
