The Parlour Palm is the quintessential indoor plant (checkout some of its history here). Native to the subtropical and tropical regions throughout the Americas this true palm has been a popular indoor plant because of its elegant but yet 'easy-growing' nature and ability to thrive in lower light conditions, making it perfectly adaptable to thriving indoors. We love them due to their excellent air purifying ability and because they are non-toxic to pets.
The Betel Leaf Plant is endemic across South East Asia and India this pungently flavoured houseplant (yep, that's right it's edible!) has been traditionally used for both culinary and medicinal purposes.
Ornamentally it is admired for its large heart-shaped, green leaves on a vigorously growing vine that can reach up to 3 meters or more in the right conditions.
Hands down one of our favourite houseplants, the Calathea Makoyana is a showy member of one of the showiest houseplant species around! With its beautiful foliage of light green with distinctly feathered pattern of dark green and purply-pink underside it's easy to see how its common name of peacock plant has arisen; each leaf reminiscent of a peacock's tail feather.
Once, you've established a good care routine for these little plants, the Heart Leaf Fern will reward you with their dark green, leathery foliage and the slight smugness that comes from keeping ferns alive.
