Choosing indoor plants

Learn how to choose and care for plants that will thrive indoors.

When it’s cold outside, it’s time to bring the garden inside and give new life to your interior. These days there is plenty of talk about environmentally friendly ‘green’ homes. But let’s talk about a truly green home – one full of living plants, where the inhabitants can relax and nurture their souls surrounded by natural beauty. It’s time to bring back indoor plants. Not the African violets that grow in small pots on your kitchen windowsill, but big, bold indoor plants that create impact.

When friends visit my place they say it’s like visiting a jungle – wonderful plants drip out of hanging wicker baskets, spill over side tables, liven up empty corners and soften walls. When you create a garden indoors, think about the plants that will suit your interior style. My ‘tropical’ look with teak furniture, strong red highlights and Balinese fabrics are boosted with unusual foliage shapes and easy-care plants such as Zanzibar gem, golden cane palm and bromeliads. Modern interiors with their clean and simple lines can be jazzed up with textural foliage and sculptural plants such as the Madagascar dragon tree (Dracaena marginata) and lady palm. On the other hand, the antique cottage look is complemented best with heart-shaped flowers and soft, romantic ferns.

What is an indoor plant?

There is no such thing as an indoor plant; only a plant that can handle the added stress of growing indoors. After all, indoor living robs plants of most of the elements they need to flourish: rain, fresh air and sunshine. Plants that can survive under a roof usually come from subtropical climates and are accustomed to growing in dappled light conditions. The plants I have selected are more likely to withstand fluctuating temperatures between night and day and season to season, low light and frequent drying out. Also bear in mind indoor plants bought directly from the nursery have usually been reared in a temperature-controlled glasshouse with frequent water and fertilising. For best results, gradually acclimatise plants to your home’s individual conditions. Keep up the water and the feed for the first few months then wean them off all the attention slowly to harden them up, taking care not to neglect them too much.

There are lots of books on the subject, but I have found the best way to ensure hardy bud-producing plants is to use 2-liter coke bottles with the tops cut off.
Put one seedling per coke bottle, and as they grow keep adding more dirt a little bit at a time to support the stem until it gets big.
They need FULL sun, preferably 24 hours a day, but since that's not available, put them in the spot with the most sun. Or you can buy (or build) an elaborate indoor grow light and water system, but in my opinion that's a waste of money... they grow just as well outside in a sunny place
