Large Shelf Plants

Plants in this collection come in 18cm to 21cm diameter growing pots. Given their larger size, you’ll need a bit more space or surface area to accommodate them. But don't let that put you off! The taller the plant the bigger the wow factor. Just one of our large plants can transform your home. And a top tip: large plants are much easier to care for than juvenile plants.

How to Pick the One for You

These large plants are generally easier to care for because they are less sensitive to changes in their environment than their smaller counterparts would be. Their bigger leaves, trunks and fronds can add structure and colour to your plant collection. Or they make great solo statement pieces, beside your sofa, or in your front hall, depending on the atmosphere you’re looking to create.

If you spend a lot of time at home, it’s worth taking the time to create a balanced living environment. Plus, it is a great way to get your creative juices going! Plants are a great way to complement your room’s interior design whilst also being good for your wellbeing. A win-win situation. If you decide that your collection is missing some large indoor plants, here’s some inspiration for where they’ll thrive.

Sunny Rooms With Large Windows

Your living room will have various spots that a plant would do nicely in. A lot of plants would prefer not to get the prime spot in directly by the window. But you’ll find some of these large plants would love the additional vitamin D. Observe your plant and you’ll get a feel for whether they will thrive in their given spot.

One type of plant that we would recommend for a spot with lots of sunlight would be citrus trees. How cool would it be to grow your very own lemons?! A lemon tree will thrive in a bright spot and will love it even more if he gets to go outside during the summer months.

Cactuses are found in the warmer regions of our beautiful planet. We love this Spiral Cactus as it’s very robust and easy to look after. If you have a desk with a bit of empty space, this cactus could be a real eye-catcher. Each cactus' spiral is a little bit different, so you’re guaranteed to have a one of a kind plant. When yours arrives, give it some time to get used to the new environment. Once it is established at home, it’s ready to take a spot in the direct sun. 

A Shelf With Filtered Light

The vast majority of tropical plants like to be in a humid space with filtered light, so you’ve really got your pick of plants here! If you’re looking for a plant that will bring a feeling of tropical jungles into your home, then look no further. This Swiss Cheese Plant is a great plant for beginners and all those who love a fast grower. They get their name from the internal holes that form on their leaves as they grow.

Have you ever seen plants that open and close their leaves at dawn and dusk? If you’re as fascinated by these plants as we are, then you need to take a closer look at the Calathea Medallion. One of the first things you’ll notice is the spectacular patterns on the top of its leaves. The underside has a lush purple colour which makes it a truly mesmerising plant.

Plants for the Shade

Almost all plants need a certain amount of light to survive, but some need less than others. If you are looking to add some greenery to a spot with less light, you might be surprised to find how many plants will thrive in this environment. You’ll notice that plants need less water in a shaded spot, but that’s all.

If you’re on the hunt for a plant with a unique appearance, this might be just what you’re looking for. Whilst the Cordyline Tango is super easy to take care of, it looks spectacular. Its leaves have a deep purple-green colour so it’s ideal for setting an accent in your room. As it continues to grow, it will develop a bushy shape.

When thinking about how to decorate your bedroom, you should consider adding a plant or two. They will create a calming atmosphere which helps to slow down after a busy day. The Cast Iron Plant has protruding leathery leaves which keep a rich green all year round. The house plant does not require a lot of light to thrive, so it could be the ideal candidate to fill that space on your bedroom’s dresser.

Talents for Cleaning the Air

As we always say, plants are not just great décor. Building greenery into your everyday environments can significantly improve your health and wellbeing. One of the many ways plants can help is by taking all sorts of nasties out of the air. Plants catch dust, filter toxins from the air and boost humidity in rooms dried out by central heating and air conditioning.

One of our favourite climbing plants is particularly good at purifying the air: the Golden Pothos has glossy heart-shaped leaves and can grow quite fast. It can reach up to 2m but no need to worry. You can always cut it back to keep it under control. But why not let it flow and embrace the jungle-look?
