Popular houseplants at Rushfields
Thinking of a houseplant but not sure which one to choose? Find the list below of the plants we love, because of their shape, size and colours. These are the most beloved houseplants for indoors at Rushfields. Some may be pretty obvious, due to the lack and attention with watering they need, but some are a real surprise...
1. Areca palm
The Areca Palm earns its place in this list because of the low caring and its big size. Without securely looking after your plant and watering it daily, the areca palm blooms beautifully and fills up an empty spot in your house easily.
2. Sansevieria trifasciata (snake plant)
This plant owes its nickname by the shape of the leaves, they look like a snake tail and feel rough. Or you may know this plant for the 'Mother in laws tongue.' You can think of the purpose of this nickname yourself. The sansevieria trifasciata absorbs toxins and releases oxygen. The snake plant is easy to maintain, you can place it anywhere and it goes a long time between watering. Important: keep out of the reach of pets, as they are toxic.
3. Yucca elephantipes
The Yucca plant almost sounds like a new roommate, there are many different sorts of the yucca. Ones you've placed a Yucca in a sunny to partly shaded location indoors, the green friend's care is easy. Yucca's have low water requirements, so watering them once a month can be enough. Most of all, a yucca plant can be your best green friend, if you look after it and give love.
4. Aloe Vera
Part of the succulent family, the aloe vera plant is not only beautiful but also functional. These friendly green spined help clean the air and the gel found inside the leaves are used in skin products such as beauty-care and after-suns. Aloe Vera plants require watering when the top of the soil is dry, most of the time this means every two weeks. So, low in care but high in caring!
The Orchidaceae is one of the widespread family of tropical flowering plants. With its beautiful flowers in every colour, you can think of, this houseplant brightens up your room. Avoid overwatering orchids, too much water makes the roots rot and eventually kill the plant. Orchids don't fancy too much sun and heat. So, place them on the table rather than in the windowsill, especially when your window is west- or south-facing. Take care of your orchid and you'll enjoy wonderful flowers every year if cut wisely and with care.
