20 Best Indoor Plants for the Home

best indoor plants for the home

Having an indoor jungle transcends all the requirements of having an outside garden, especially if you have limited space in an apartment or house. Limited space however, does mean that you need to choose the best houseplants that will thrive so that you make the most out of their benefits. Given our fast-paced, technology-heavy culture, there is something comforting — even healing — about being around houseplants. Not to mention they make a room more appealing and livable. They lower stress and make it easier to breathe via their air purification properties. There are many botanical beauties that can be grown inside our homes.

Check out our carefully selected list of the best indoor plants to help you achieve a respectable indoor jungle. These aren't just popular house plants - they're also quite hardy as well.
