Nothing livens up the home like a large indoor tree. Living greenery adds a touch of natural beauty and can give your TV room, home office, master bath, or kitchen a big style boost. With the right amount of light and water, an indoor tree can make any space feel warm and welcoming. Here are some of the best trees for growing indoors.
Fiddle Leaf Fig
As the name implies, this popular indoor tree has broad, glossy green, fiddle-shaped leaves that fill an empty corner like no other. Refined in shape, and less fussy than most indoor trees, the Fiddle Leaf Fig likes moderate to bright light, and is perfect for placing beside French or sliding glass doors in the kitchen. Once acclimated and with proper care, it can grow to maximum height of ten feet, making it a lovely compliment to tall kitchen cabinets.
Another popular choice, the Weeping Fig has graceful branches that slightly bend under the weight of a mass of small, variegated, teardrop-shaped leaves. This indoor tree has multiple trunks for added visual interest. It prefers bright, indirect light and makes a lovely addition to a home office or TV room. This tree tends to drop leaves, so be sure to place it somewhere with easy to sweep wood or tile flooring.
This refined tree is easy to grow indoors, and has feathery green fronds that arch and bow. Lush and tropical, it does well in bright spaces and can grow up to eight feet tall indoors. The Areca Palm (also known as Butterfly or Golden Cane Palm) looks right at home in contemporary kitchens with all wood cabinetry. It can also make a stunning statement in a spa master bathroom, since it thrives in warm, moist environments.
The Rubber Tree has big, glossy leaves that range from dark green to bronze. It prefers bright yet indirect light and mild pruning. This one takes a little more care than most and can grow to a massive 50 feet, so it’s best to start with a small, immature plant when growing and training indoors. But if you want beautiful greenery that will compliment tall kitchen cabinets, the Rubber Tree is an excellent choice.
This sturdy tree has multiple, intertwined trunks and a slender profile, making it a great choice for small spaces. Since it prefers bright light and moist soil, the Money Tree (also known as an Indoor Bonsai) is suitable for growing in the bathroom or just about anywhere with a sunny window nearby. Exotic and bold, it also works well in a home office.
