Fiddle Leaf Fig

If you’re working with limited space but your ceilings are high, the fiddle leaf fig is right for you! It’s tall, it’s thin, and it only requires medium light. Plus, it’s perfect for any home. From boho chic to eclectic, contemporary, or transitional, it’ll add warmth and the perfect touch of nature to your surroundings.


Pint-sized succulents add a pop of green to your room and work great when placed on smaller surfaces. Try displaying a couple on your bookshelf or side table. The best part is they don’t need direct sunlight and you only need to water them once a week.

Weeping Fig

A perfect little tree for your space, the weeping fig likes to hang out by a window with indirect sunlight. It’ll do best in a north-facing room where it can live its best life! Not home all the time to tend to it? Luckily, it only has to be watered every 4-7 days.

Snake Plant

The toughest of the greenery on our list is the snake plant, which can survive in low light and only needs to be watered occasionally when the soil is dry. So yes, basically it can be neglected for weeks at a time! This hearty little beauty also has properties which help keep your home clean. What’s not to love?

The philodendron is a lush, tropical plant meant to be placed in a bright area with indirect sunlight. It’s rich color provides a gorgeous pop of green to any space. And you know what? It’s a great communicator! It’ll tell you it’s getting too much sunlight if the leaves turn yellow. Now that’s what we call helpful!
