I have been spending a huge amount of time in my home office which also doubles as my art studio. Since this room has a west-facing window and really great indirect light throughout the day, I decided to place a few plants in this room.
It really boosts moral to look over and see a beautiful green plant rooting for me! (Pun intended)
But, back to the main reason for this post. I have been able to narrow my favorites down to five from my studio and wanted to share them with you all in case you’re looking for a great addition to your favorite space.
I have two Spider Plants that are super adorable! They have very long leaves with variations of green lining them. This plant is super bushy and heavy when happy. They even have little shoot that branch in warmer months that you can actually propagate or re-plant for a new Spider Plants!
The Nerve Plant is such an attractive plant and it feels just like it looks, FUZZY. The leaves have a fuzzy texture that pretty much covers the whole plant including the stems. I could just stare at this plant all day and obsess over its leaves. The Nerve Plant can also have wild red veins that remind me of the green and red candy canes.
Sansevieria is also known as the Snake Plant. This guy is such a versatile plant and can grow happily in direct or low-light. The snake plant has an arsenal of different types of leaves, colors and shapes. My personal favorite is the Trifasciata which commonly have deep green leaves that have a lighter green pattern on them.
Monstera deliciosa is an amazing plant that demands the attention of the room. You can keep it tamed and trimmed or let it grow along a moss pole to loom over any room. This plant is native to the tropical forests of Mexico and is known to grow more that sixty feet in their natural habitat and up to eight feet in your home. The leaves on my big guys are wider than my hand already!
The first time I saw the name Zamioculcas Zamiifolia I think I stared at it for a good five minutes trying to get the name out correctly. While it’s name is a mouthful, this plant is better known simply as the ZZ plant. I love the way its leaves are arranged along the stem and the fact that it has an upward growth and fills out nicely when taken care of.
There are so many other wonderful plants that weren’t included in this post. If you have an awesome plant in your favorite space, I’d love to know! Leave a comment down below and share your favorites.
Until next time!
