Small Indoor Plants FAQ
What is the Right Location For My Small Plant?
Whether you are just starting to explore plants or you’re already a plant lover: there is a plant for everyone. If you’d love some green in your home but with little maintenance requirements, then a Fishbone cactus would be a great choice for you. These plants grow well in warm spaces and like to dry out between watering. With its oddly shaped stems, it is an unusual but beautiful choice.
Whilst our small indoor plants take up less space, they tend to be more sensitive to changes, which can be tough in the UK given the mixed seasons. This means that these mini greens are more susceptible to droughts or bright sun than their bigger brothers and sisters might be.
The most important step in caring for your small plant is to choose the right spot with the right light, humidity, and temperature conditions.
Best Small Plants for Direct Sunlight
If you have a desk or an empty windows in a sunny spot, you should choose a houseplant that is native to sunny environments. This may be a succulent or a Dragon Tree. A general rule of thumb - if you notice brown spots on your plant’s leaves, try moving it to a different spot. Light and Sunny Spots: Every plant needs light, but there are differences in the amount they need.
Best Small Plants for Indirect Sunlight
Bright Location: If you have a spot with bright filtered light, then you are in luck. Many of the small houseplants in this collection prefer bright indirect light because they originate from the jungles where the light is filtered by trees that tower over them.
Bright filtered light means a light spot where the sun does not shine directly on your plant. One of the most popular houseplants in the UK is the Chinese Money Plant. With its round leaves, it’s a beautiful addition to any home.
Best Small Plants for Little Natural Light
Have you ever considered hanging plants for your kitchen or bathroom? You may be surprised, but there are some great small houseplants, for example, air plants. Just hang them on a shower rack or beams. If you prefer plants with trailing vines, then we would recommend the Green Sweetheart. This houseplant is easy to care for and will naturally transform your room.
You might be working in an environment where there’s more fluorescent light than sunlight. This environment can be quite difficult for a plant to survive in, depending on how much actual sunlight is available.
Plants that can cope with low light environments, like the Philodendron ‘Green Princess’, would be your best shot. But do not be discouraged if the mini houseplants die after a few years, as it can be a hard environment for them to thrive in.
