5 Best Indoor Plants To Buy In Winters
Winter is a time when many of us feel gloomy and dull. The cold weather and the lack of sunlight can affect our mood and energy levels. But there is a simple way to brighten up your home and your spirits: indoor plants!
However, when choosing indoor plants for the winter it is important to take into consideration only those plants that can survive the harsh winter conditions such as low light and humidity.
That’s why we have compiled a list of the five best indoor plants that you can buy in the winter. These plants are easy to care for, hardy, and beautiful. They will make your home feel cozy and inviting. Here they are:
Chinese evergreen (Aglaonema)
Chinese evergreen is a popular indoor plant that can tolerate low light and dry air. It has glossy green leaves with silver or red patterns. If not pruned it can even grow up to a height of 3 feet. It likes moist soil, but be careful not to overwater it. It also prefers warm temperatures, so keep it away from colder spaces.
Christmas cactus (Schlumbergera)
Christmas cactus is a succulent that belongs to the same family as orchids. It has flat, segmented stems that resemble cacti. It blooms in the winter with colorful flowers in shades of pink, red, white, or purple making the space vibrant. Place it in bright indirect light, and water it only when the top one-third soil feels dry. It also likes high humidity, so mist it occasionally or place it near a humidifier.
Rubber plant (Ficus elastica)
The Rubber plant is a stunning plant that has large, shiny, dark green or burgundy leaves. It thrives in bright indirect light but can survive in low light conditions as well. It needs moderate watering, but let the soil dry out between waterings. It also likes high humidity, so wipe its leaves with a damp cloth or spray them with water.
Jade plant (Crassula ovata)
The Jade plant is a classic succulent with thick, fleshy green leaves. It likes bright light, so avoid keeping them in the dark spots of the house. It needs minimal watering, so let the soil dry out completely between waterings. Also, it is necessary to keep it away from heaters or radiators.
Spider plant (Chlorophytum comosum)
The Spider plant has long, thin green leaves with white stripes. It looks even more striking when it produces baby plants or pups at the end of long stems that look like spiders. It looks great both in a hanging basket and as a shelf plant. It likes bright indirect light but can tolerate low light as well. It needs moderate watering, but let the soil dry out slightly between waterings.
These are some of the best indoor plants that you can buy in the winter to add some life and color to your home.
