Like the philodendron, the monstera is a vine. However, it's easy to grow it vertically. Just give it support and it will produce several leaves a year. However, in low-light conditions, there will be fewer openings in the leaves as the monstera needs plenty of light. It is also less suitable for small rooms as it can grow to gigantic sizes.

Dracaena Sander, also known as indoor bamboo

Despite its resemblance to bamboo, this plant is not related to it at all. Nevertheless, people call Dracaena sanderiana the indoor bamboo or the lucky bamboo. It grows well in shaded areas because it does not like direct sunlight. It is also quite tolerant in terms of watering.

Elegant chamaedorea

The name of the plant speaks for itself. It is a small indoor palm that grows in a beautiful exotic sultan of feathery leaves. Chamaedorea is not very fond of coolness, and this is the end of its special requirements. The palm tree grows upwards, so it won't take up much space. However, it will create the atmosphere of the real tropics in your home.


Give this little bush a little love and it will turn into a real home decoration. Chlorophytum stores water and food well in its roots, so it won't feel bad if you forget to water it once in a while. The plant is suitable for different lighting. It is a good choice for hanging pots because an adult bush has a very loose rosette and can produce long runners with small plants at the ends. Therefore, chlorophytum can be placed even in a cramped room without losing any usable space.

This is the case when the plant has both very decorative greenery and extremely beautiful flowers. Spathiphyllum tolerates different light and humidity conditions. But it will have to be watered on time. Fortunately, it knows how to remind you of missed watering - if the soil moisture level drops below a comfortable level, it drops its leaves. If you add a little water to the pot, the plant will return to its previous state in a couple of hours without any loss in appearance. It will also delight you with beautiful white flowers that last a very long time.

Maranta arundinacea

This beauty comes from the tropical forests of Brazil and became famous for its colorful leaves. Some species combine several shades of green, some have spectacular red veins. The plant feels quite good in dark rooms and does not take up much space as it is quite compact in size. However, it needs to be watered quite regularly. In return, you will get a very decorative flowerpot, a real home decoration.

The colorful foliage of aglaonema does not lose its decorative effect even in low light conditions. However, variegated varieties may lose some contrast if they lack light. Still, this will not harm the plant as a whole. Aglaonema can even bloom with good care but it is so beautiful on its own that you don't have to force it to do so.

Adiantum raddianum

This is probably the most beautiful fern of all those suitable for growing at home. For its decorative properties, it was given the poetic name Venus hair. Its branches are often used to decorate bouquets. The fan-shaped leaves, branched into many small elements with a delicately cut edge, can be adored endlessly. Adiantum is unpretentious to light and temperature but it is better not to forget about watering.
