I’d like a fairly tall plant for my large front hall. It’s quite bright all day though not direct sun. What would look good without appearing skimpy?
- Ficus remains popular for its profuse, shiny, small, oval-shaped leaves on gently arching branches. You also have the choice of a straight, braided or corkscrew trunk. There are “poodle-style” topiary ficus available as well
- An alternative choice would be a Fiddle Leaf Fig with its large, slightly wavy leaves
- Palms make a very tropical statement
- Pothos are a great easy care plant with pointed heart shaped leaves available in green or variegated
*Whatever house plant you choose, keep it away from drafts and place it in an attractive container
I’m looking for unusual foliage house plants for medium light.
- If unusual is what you’re after, Elephant Ears is a great choice with their large heart shaped leaves
- The Umbrella Tree has shiny medium leaves that resemble umbrellas
- Staghorn Fern is a conversation piece with its decorative leaves that resemble reindeer antlers
- The Cast Iron plant has small, solitary purplish flowers may appear at the base of the plant
- Rex Begonias come in dazzling foliage colours too
I’d like one unique house plant to place on my coffee table. Any suggestions?
- A Bonsai would definitely be appropriate as they look like miniature pieces of living sculpture
- Tropical and semi-tropical bonsai like Umbrella, Serissa, Ficus, Fukien Tea, Chinese Banyan, and Ponytail Palm are easier to care for than evergreen varieties
- Create your own dish garden in a shallow bowl or lined basket. We also carry a wide variety of pre-made dish gardens
- Choose from a huge variety of house plants in 10 cm (4”) pots and combine them to suit your taste
- You can regularly change 1 or more of the house plants to match the season, for example, include a Poinsettia, Primula, Crocus, Dwarf Daffodil, Cyclamen, Geranium, or Chrysanthemum
*Be sure to place a cork mat beneath the container so the surface below won’t be scratched and moisture won’t leave a stain
