Spring indoor plants are a great way to add life to a room’s design. Literally. Whether you’re new to having plants inside or you’re a seasoned veteran, we could all use a few new plant friends as we head into spring.
Plants are certainly an integral part of homes across different countries and cultures. Having a plant or two around the house tends to bring the warmth and happiness of the outdoors into the home. Interior design styles like bohemian, Moroccan and jungalow all heavily rely on plants to define their unique look.
Our list of spring indoor plants is sure to give you some inspiration for ways to bring color and vibrancy into your home.
10 Spring Indoor Plants to Liven up Your Home
Anthurium’s brightly colored flowers will brighten up your home just in time for spring! The plant is easy to care for. They love warmth and high-humidity, making them great for a bathroom.
2. Boston Fern
Boston ferns are popular among houseplant enthusiasts and newcomers alike. The plant’s small leafy characteristics and full foliage are what draw people to this houseplant. To maintain your plant’s happiness, keep the Boston fern’s soil moist constantly and sprits it with water if its leaves begin to yellow.
3. Peace Lilly
This beautiful plant, known for its white spoon-like flowers, is known for its air-cleansing properties. It can grow up to five feet, but if kept in a small pot the plant can stay small enough to sit on a desk. But be careful if you have a furry friend, as peace lilies are poisonous to cats and dogs.
Also known as snake plants, sansevierias are extremely tough plants. They can put up with almost anything! That being said, sansevierias prefer medium light and water every two to six weeks, after their soil has become completely dry.
Colorful and flowering, these indoor plants are perfect for brightening up your space. Related to the pineapple, bromeliads are forgiving and long-lasting. They like lots of bright light (but not prolonged direct sunlight) and a good watering once a month.
6. Aloe Vera
One of the most commonly known succulents in the world, aloe vera is a great plant to have growing in your kitchen. Not only are these unique plants a great addition to your home décor, their juice can also be used to help soothe scrapes and burns.
7. Silver Philodendron
Philodendron’s houseplant days date all the way back to the Victorian era. Silver philodendron has distinctive silver markings on its leaves. Its vining qualities make it perfect for hanging planters or table tops.
8. Zebra Plant (Aphelandra squarrosa)
Not to be confused with its succulent counterpart Haworthia fasciata, the zebra plant is a large-leaved plant that occasionally blooms yellow flowers at its center. These tropical plants like high-humidity and frequent spritzing.
9. Chenille Plant
Appropriately named after the French word for caterpillar, chenille, this plant boasts fuzzy red flowers that can get up to 18 inches long. Keep your chenille in an area of your home that gets lots of sunlight.
10. Phalaenopsis Orchid
Commonly known as moth orchids, Phalaenopsis orchids make great indoor plants for spring and are easy to care for. “Wait, what?” That’s right, contrary to what you may have heard about orchids, Phalaenopsis orchids are simple plants. It’s orchid hybrids that can become tricky to keep. Brighten up your home this spring with these incredibly unique flowering plants.
Caring for Spring Indoor Plants
Repot and pot-up
Refreshing your plant’s soil, or even potting your plant in a roomier pot if necessary, significantly improves your plant’s health. It helps with watering, room for growth, disease prevention and the opportunity for dividing offshoots and creating new plants.
Feed your plants
Plants don’t need additional nutrients during their dormant state in the winter. But once the temperatures rise outside, even indoor plants know it’s time to wake up! Feeding your plants in the spring will significantly help plant growth and vitality.
Prune and trim
If your plants have dried and yellowed from the harshness of winter, trimming and pruning their leaves and stems will help them grow and flourish.
Dust! (and wash)
Like every other item in your home, indoor plants collect dust. Those dirty leaves prevent your plant from getting as much sunlight. Carefully wipe your plants with a damp, soft cloth to clean them.
Reposition for light and temperature needs
You might have moved your plant to prepare for winter temperatures and lessened sunlight. Don’t forget to move them back! Researching your plant’s temperature and sunlight needs can help you find the perfect home for your indoor plant.
