Create an Indoor Plant Oasis

Apr 9, 2020

Surrounding yourself with nature is a surefire way to feel calmer and more relaxed. Spending time outside is a great way to achieve this, but what happens when you can’t venture outside? Consider bringing nature inside by creating an indoor plant oasis!

Imagine yourself surrounded by lush green foliage of all different sizes, hues, and textures. Everyday activities like reading a book or cooking somehow become more relaxing. Even tending to your plants is therapeutic. Growing an indoor jungle is not as daunting as it seems. Follow these tips to transform your indoor space into a lush, rejuvenating plant oasis.

Evaluate Your Lighting

As refreshing as it is to be surrounded by lush greenery, it is equally stressful to be surrounded by discolored, struggling plants. Light is an essential requirement for any plant - and different plants require different lighting conditions.

Knowing what type of light is in your space is crucial before you go crazy plant shopping. A plant like Aloe Vera aloe needs 8 hours of sun, whereas a Peace Lily would burn. Here are some of our favorite low-light plants.

Go Vertical

Don’t be afraid to take your plants vertical! From long trailing hanging plants to a green wall, going vertical not only gives you more space for more plants it also helps give the feel of an indoor jungle.

Go Big

What is an indoor plant oasis without at least one big, standout plant? You don’t need to haul a tree inside (unless you want to), but a lush tropical plant transforms an awkward corner as much as a few tall, big-leafed plants behind your couch define a sitting area. Philodendron Monstera Split Leaf, Fiddle Leaf Fig, and Majesty Palm are popular options for interior designers aiming to give your living room that exotic jungle vibe.

Incorporate Air Purifying Plants

What's a relaxing space without fresh air to take in! According to a study conducted by Nasa, the roots of plants have a cleansing capability on the air and have the ability to remove toxins and make oxygen more breathable! We've gone ahead and compiled all of these air purifying plants into one collection so you can shop with ease and breathe easier!

Play With Your Senses

Let your imagination run wild for a minute. What springs to your mind when you think about an indoor oasis? Big green leaves and long trailing vines are essential, but what about adding sensory houseplants? The smell of Jasmine, the feel of the fuzzy leaf from a Begonia Begonia, even the sight of the colorful leaves of a Croton. Playing on your senses helps create a calm, welcoming environment.
