Which is the best indoor plant?

We are often asked to name the best indoor plant. And our honest answer is that there are many amazing plants that deserve to win first place

We’ve rounded up some of our favourite indoor plants, along with tips to help you care for them.

Ferns

Ferns are a definite contender for best indoor plant, thanks to their lush green foliage and striking appearance

Ferns come in a huge variety of shapes and sizes. Maidenhair ferns are a clear favourite, thanks to their delicate leaves and beautiful texture. They like warm positions away from direct sunlight and cold draughts. Classic varieties like the Boston Fern can be placed on a high shelf or hung from the ceiling, allowing the fronds to dangle down elegantly. The Silver Lady Fern has classic fronds that grow out from the centre in a stunning rosette shape, and it is the perfect centrepiece for a table. Fern Duffi, with its small button-like and lemon-scented leaves, adds texture to an indoor plant collection.

Is the Silver Ribbon fern the best indoor plant

The Silver Ribbon Fern makes an impact with its graceful green-edged and pale-centered leaflets. Phew! There really is a fern for every space. Ferns generally thrive in shaded spots and bright indirect light. Water ferns regularly and let the excess water drain out.  

Peace Lily

Is the Peace Lily the best indoor plant

Peace Lilies purify the air and are super easy to look after, which is why they are often considered the best indoor plant

The Peace Lily has excellent air-purifying abilities. A NASA study found that the Peace Lily may remove air pollutants from our homes. In our opinion that is reason enough for the Peace Lily to be named best indoor plant. But there’s more! Placed in a powder room, a Peace Lily may help remove ammonia to rid your home of unwanted odours. The Peace Lily produces tall and slender white flowers, which often bloom in spring. It has extremely elegant and glossy leaves. Peace Lilies like a warm position that’s away from the harsh midday sun. Water your plant weekly over summer and fortnightly in winter and with rain water if possible. Dust the leaves to enhance their beauty.

Monstera Deliciosa

The Monstera Deliciosa makes a big impact and it can handle some neglect. It’s regularly ranked best indoor plant

The Monstera Deliciosa, or Swiss Cheese Plant, is the darling of indoor plant enthusiasts. You’ll find this popular plant in hip cafes, creative studios and stylish homes. And it is no wonder why. Adding a Monstera Deliciosa to your collection instantly creates a jungle vibe. The gorgeous leaves are large and sculptural, and the vines can be trained to climb up a totem. Like other plants on this best indoor plant list, it helps purify the air in your home. Choose the Mini Monstera if you want to save on space. Place your Monstera Deliciosa in a bright spot away from direct sunlight, and water it when the soil feels dry.
