It is no secret that I absolutely love houseplants and would come home with one each time I go to the garden center if I could. I find myself wanting more plants during the winter season. Just something about the cold and sparse winter wonderland makes me want to look at something a bit more green and alive. Thankfully, there are plenty of sellers on Amazon that will deliver houseplants to you at some more affordable prices. (All the products listed have at least a 3.5 star rating on Amazon.)
This is an easy house plant to take care of and loves bright indirect light. Its rubbery leaves store water very well so it can be watered sparingly throughout the year.
In the same family as the baby rubber plant is the Peperomia Rosso or the Emerald Ripple. It’s known for its unique leaves that are green on top and red on the bottom. Peperomias themselves are named so because they resemble the pepper plant. The Emerald Ripple grows to be around 8 inches tall and does best in bright indirect lighting. They do best to be watered every 7 – 10 days. When the soil feels mostly dry, provide a thorough, deep watering. Always water from below and allow the plant to soak up all the water it needs.Then allow the allow excess water to pour out of the drainage holes before setting the plant in a saucer.
The Goldfish Plant is named so for its uniquely shaped flowers and leaves, as well as their orange color. This plant loves bright light and some direct sunlight (couple of hours) can help them grow well. You will want to allow the soil to dry out a bit before watering thoroughly.
This species of Dracaena is noted for its curling leaves and makes it a unique addition to your houseplant collection. It needs indirect sunlight and loves humidity. When watering, it is good to keep the soil moist, but be careful not to overwater.
Dragon Fingers are an indoor plant that prefers bright, filtered light, but the plants are highly light-tolerant. Outdoors, Sansevieria grows well in shaded or partially shaded areas. The plant can survive long periods of drought. Water it monthly or less in winter; water it weekly or every other week in summer.
