Hi there! Still loving your indoor plants? Me too! I’ve been thinking about what plants I would love to add to my home this year. Lots of unique and interesting plants are popping up on Instagram and Pinterest lately and I’ve been making a mental note so that I can keep a look out. While the Fiddle is still a popular choice, we are going to see less of it (which is a good thing because they are hard work!) and more variety with plants that you probably have never heard of!
It’s time for the String of Pearls, Chain of Hearts and Fiddles to move over and make room for these plants in 2017.
Those large, vibrant leaves! A member of the philodendron family, there are many different versions of a Monstera. Very low maintenance and easy to grow – but be warned – this plant grows horizontally rather than vertically so it can get quite large! It looks great in a large open space or on top of a book shelf where it can grow wide and hang low. I have a friend who picked one up from our local Bunnings.
You’ve probably never heard of this plant, neither had I till I saw it a few weeks ago. If your a keen indoor gardener than this plant must be added to your collection. It is the ‘it’ plant. The only catch is, they are super hard to come by and if your lucky enough to find one, expect to pay up to $90 for a tiny baby plant. You won’t find this gem in your local Bunnings. The good new is, they are fast growing and sprout lots of baby plants which you can give to friends and family.
Just one of the Hoya plant varieties, this plant is low maintenance and easy to grow. Its large waxy type leaves hold an incredible amount of water. Suited to pots where its tendrils can hang low or you can train the vines to grow up over a window. The best bet? These are readily available at Bunnings. I even saw one at my local Kmart the other day!
What do you think? What unusual house plants do you have?
