Homiful.com -- Do you want to create a green space for your home but don't have much time to garden? Don't worry, we'll get started right away with these "7 Fast Growing Houseplants for Impatient Gardeners". 

There are many houseplants that grow quickly, particularly herbaceous houseplants; all you need to do is choose one that will get the right light and conditions in the location you have in mind, as well as one that will look good and fit in with the rest of your decor.

Golden Pothos (Epipremnum Aureum)


Pothos is one of the most popular fast growing houseplants because it is attractive, requires little care, and can be grown in water jugs or vases. Its beautiful broad, round, and pointed leaves draping shelves hanging from its waving trailing branches have now made indoor garnering history. Its branches can grow to be 6 or even 10 feet long (1.8 to 3 meters) indoors, making it ideal for hanging baskets near the ceiling.

Wandering Jew (Tradescantia Pallida)


Super fast growing and effortless, wandering Jew is a wonderful houseplant with a lot of charm! Indeed, its long, partly trailing branches will bear lovely lanceolate leaves with the most amazing colorful stripes: cream, green, magenta, and purple! 

The color may vary depending on the lighting, but this plant is always eye-catching and can grow in shallow pots or hanging baskets. You can even grow it on your terrace if you want. It requires very little watering and should be allowed to dry completely before watering; drought resistant, no water should be left in the saucer.

Winterbourn  (Philodendron Xanadu)


Philodendron Winterbourn, also known as Xanadu or cut-leaf philodendron, is a popular fast-growing houseplant known for its beautiful, waxy, and deep green leaves. Xanadu, will brighten up your office or living room with its long lobed shiny leaves that are rich emerald in color and have brighter ribs running along the lobes. 

The leaves can grow to be 16 inches long (40 cm) and 12 inches wide (30 cm)! This plant is very decorative, with upright stems and then long arching leaves in clumps, making it suitable for large pots and creating an impressive exotic corner.

Asparagus Fern (Asparagus Setaceus Plumosus)


Asparagus fern is a delicate looking plant with leaves as light as butterfly wings, that will float in the air of your living room like gently bending and waving sails on thin and slender upright stems. It has an amazing lacy texture, is elegant, and grows quickly. 

The feathery leaves may also form silk veils of rich emerald green on the sides of your pots. This is a plant that exudes refined, sophisticated taste, is unobtrusive in appearance, but always regales you with an intricacy of shapes and texture that will keep your guests gazing for hours!

Dieffenbachia (Dieffenbachia Oerstedii)


Dieffenbachia, with the waxiest, shiniest deep green elliptical leaves you can imagine, has become a very popular houseplant, possibly because its amazingly smooth texture makes it look like an artificial, plastic plant. 

There is a light colored rib in the center of the leaf that draws your attention along the long and large leaves towards the point, followed by regular grooved veins that give it a slightly undulated shape as it grows in opposing pairs on green stems with an upright habit. The effect is lush and exotic, making it ideal for an office.

Dieffenbachia 'Camille'


Dieffenbachia 'Camille' is an evergreen perennial cultivar with large, oval leaves that are dark green at the edges and white in the center. Older plants' leaves are almost entirely white in the center. This is also known as Dumb Cane 'Camille,' and it refers to the plant's poisoning effect, which can cause a temporary inability to speak if consumed. 

Diffenbachias contain calcium oxalate, which is toxic to small rodents and should not be kept near children or pets. Prefer bright indirect light (partly shady spot), but can also do well in direct sunlight, though direct sunlight can cause foliage damage. Watering is required on a moderate/average basis; allow the soil to dry between waterings (about 1-2 inches from the top).

Spider Plant (Chlorophytum Comosus)


With its long and pointed leaves coming in tufts from a central rosette and draping off the margins of pots and containers, spider plant adds a touch of elegance to your living room. It also looks great on shelves and in hanging baskets. 

The long, blade-like leaves have a light lime green center and cream margins, giving them a good architectural and sculptural presence. Water on a regular basis when the top inch of soil is slightly dry.
