7 Best indoor Trees and How To Care for Them 

Homiful.com -- There are numerous reasons why tall indoor plants should be considered for your home. Their lush foliage, height, and thick leaves make bold statements in any setting. Even better, there are low-light and sun-loving items that are easy to maintain and positive to your health (many are even air-purifying). 

So, if you're looking to green up your space, we've compiled a list of the "7 Best Indoor Trees and How to Care for Them" that will make a significant impact on the interior design of your home.

Lemon Cypress (Cupressus Macrocarpa)


Lemon cypress trees emit a bright lemony scent that is sure to brighten your mood on a gloomy day, and they are easy to care for. Simply place it in a location with bright, direct light and water it once a week. Indoors, it can reach a height of 3 feet. This plant also requires bright, direct light.

Lady Palm (Rhapis excelsa)


These evergreen palms require indirect light to grow because of their glossy and long hand-shaped leaves. They can withstand deep shade, low humidity, and the cool winter air, making them good choices to keep near the door. Indoors, it can reach a height of 6 feet. Simply water it once a week. 

Areca Palm (Dypsis lutescens)


The areca palm, also known as the bamboo palm, is an eye-catching home addition with its feathery and arching fronds. They will grow faster if they are kept in humid environments and near a sunny window. 

It is suggested that they be fertilized in the spring and sprayed with a micronutrient spray in the summer. Indoors, it can reach a height of 6-7 feet. Simply water it once a week and place it in full sun or bright indirect light.

Corn Plant (Dracaena fragrans)


Unfortunately, contrary to their name, these trees do not produce corn. Instead, they grow from thick stems that form long leaves at the top, similar to corn plants. They are regarded as one of the easier houseplants for your indoor collection (humidity being their top necessity). 

Indoors, it can reach a height of 4-6 feet. Simply water it once a week and place it in a bright, indirect light location.

Fiddle Leaf Fig (Ficus Lyrata)


Because of its wide, textured leaves, this plant continues to be popular. Young plants have dense foliage that spreads out and becomes more "tree-like" as they age. Give it bright, indirect light — a window facing east is ideal. 

Water when the top inch of soil is dry, then drench until water comes out the bottom of the pot and let it dry again (2-3 times a week). Indoors, it can reach a height of 6-10 feet.

Calamondin Orange Tree (Citrus mitis)


While many dwarf fruit trees thrive in pots outdoors, this particular variety can be kept indoors all year. Calamondin orange trees produce tiny, very sour fruits as well as fragrant white flowers that will fill your room with a wonderful aroma. 

Indoors, it can reach a height of 3-6 feet. Simply water it once a week and place it in bright, direct or indirect light.

Rubber Plant (Ficus Elastica)


This tall and hardy beauty comes in a wide range of leaf colors, from tricolor and variegated to almost black. Place yours in a location with bright, indirect light and water once a week to avoid water logging. Indoors, it can reach a height of 2-10 feet.
