Different plants thrive in different conditions, which is why it’s important to think about what they need and where you’re going to place them before you buy them. Plants can make any space look more pleasant and peaceful. They bring beauty to the room and make you feel calmer. They are also our main connection with nature while we’re indoors and can have amazing health benefits as well.

Lavender

Lavender has a beautiful, very recognizable and calming scent. French lavender is best kept indoors so why not put it in your bedroom to help yourself feel more relaxed at the end of the day. French lavender needs a lot of sun and it needs to be watered regularly.

When talking about plants that can help relieve stress, Peace lily, or Spathiphyllum genus, is another perfect plant for the bedroom. It doesn’t need a lot of sun and its root can handle many different irrigation habits. The plant will let you know when it needs water by wilting when thirsty. However, you don’t want the soil to become soggy either. You can wipe the leaves every few months to keep them clean and fresh.

Chinese evergreen

The perfect plant for the bedroom since it doesn’t need a lot of sun and it only needs to be watered once a week. Simply keep it away from heat sources, perhaps add a bit of fertilizer every now and then, and you’ll have beautiful, thriving houseplants that relieve stress.

Split-leaf philodendron

This is another plant that doesn’t require you to spend a lot of time taking care of it. It looks beautiful, it can get pretty big and you only need to water it once a week. It has stunning, big leaves that look like they’ve been carefully cut.

Kentia Palm

Kentia Palm requires medium to bright, indirect light and some water once a week. It looks amazing in a big urn since the plant can get pretty big itself sometimes reaching staggering 10 feet.

Begonia

A beautiful living room plant that can stand both low light and full, direct sunlight. This one also needs to be watered weekly and you don’t want its leaves to get too dirty and dusty. With begonia and rubber tree, you can truly make a statement in a room that gets a lot of traffic. While rubber tree might be considered as a more elegant plant, begonia will show your friends and family your fun side.

Ficus bonsai tree

Perhaps my personal favorite, this plant is truly a piece of art. It instantly draws the attention to itself and makes the room pop. Bonsai trees are a great choice for small spaces and apartments as they don’t take up much space, but are still stunning. They need a lot of sunlight and can handle irregular watering.

Pothos

Darker leaves with an occasional splash of yellow really make an impression. It’s said that this plant has air-purification properties and that they can help get rid of toxins from your home.
