Bright and indirect sunlight is good for plants. However, you should be careful about watering. Follow the ‘drench and dry” approach. Water your plants thoroughly and let the soil dry out, along with weekly misting.

The round leaves create a dramatic impression. So keep the pot simple!


2. Coffee Plant

Get a small Arabica coffee plant that won’t cover your coffee habit.

But coffee plants look gorgeous. Top of that, these plants are simple to take care of.

These plants will give you enough beans once in a while to roast and brew your freshest cup of coffee.

In case, they get too dry; you will see super droopy leaves, which go back to normal after a good watering.


3. Crocodile Fern

Though green is the ‘king’ when it comes to colours close to nature, you can still throw in contrasts with colours other than green. Calathea and its red-green leaves come in rattlesnake and medallion varieties.

These plants are very picky about water and sunlight. They require weekly watering, and their brightness requirements are medium and indirect.


5. Fiddle Leaf Fig

Let umbrella plants sit next to your windows! You will find many different types of umbrella plants.

When it comes to taking care of umbrella plants, give them a healthy dose of sunlight, enough room to grow, and proper watering. With all these, this small-ish plant fills out and takes up the required space.

The best part is umbrella plant grows quickly with frequent pruning as any sheared segment will be replaced in short order elsewhere. Water it when the top inch of soil is dry. Its brightness requirements are full, direct, or indirect sunlight.

Bonus Tip:

To improve your health and reduce stress, place a large plant every 129 square feet. To purify the air, choose 15-18 plants in 6-8-inch diameter pots for a 1,800-square-foot house.

Take proper care of your plants, and they will take care of your health to pay off.
