7 Indoor Big Houseplants To Refresh Your Interior

7 Indoor Big Houseplants To Refresh Your Interior 

Homiful.com -- We've all got that one space in our home that's difficult to style - a blank wall, an empty corner, that awkward spot under the stairs - a sad spot that detracts from the rest of your lovely home. Large leafy indoor plants can be a quick and low-cost solution for these tricky zones. 

The size of the space you want to fill will determine how large you go, but if you really want to make a statement, we think the bigger the better. Here are "7 Indoor Big Houseplants To Refresh Your Interior" to spice up.

Norfolk Island Pine (Araucaria heterophylla


Though they resemble Christmas trees (and are sometimes used in one`s place), the needles on this tropical plant are much softer and more delicate. They require direct sunlight and acidic soil. Water every 1-2 weeks, allowing the soil to dry in between. 

The potting mix for the Norfolk Island Pine, a tropical plant, should be kept semi-moist but not wet, as this will cause root rot. Water more frequently when your Norfolk is in bright light and less frequently when it is in low light.

Corn Plant (Dracaena fragrans)


Unappealing name, but a delightful palm-like silhouette and yellow-green striped leaves. They only require filtered sunlight and very little else. The Corn plant necessitates regular watering. Water thoroughly once every 7 to 10 days, or when the soil is dry enough to reach 1 inch down into the soil. The roots of the Corn plant are found near the canes.

Monstera Deliciosa


Monstera deliciosa is a beautiful plant with detailed and defined leaves and an amazing ability to grow upward and outward to fill even the smallest of spaces. This tough, easy-to-grow tropical indoor plant can reach a height of nine feet. They require bright light and 11 inches of space on either side of the plant to allow the glossy leaves to spread outward. Water it once a week.

Dragon Tree (Dracaena marginata)


Dracaena requires medium to bright, indirect sunlight. Leaves can scorch if exposed to too much sunlight. For humidity, it's best to grow them in a bathroom or kitchen. Dragon tree prefer to be underwatered rather than overwatered, so let the top few centimetres of soil dry out before watering again.

Elephant Ear


The green and leafy elephant ear is ideal for those low empty spaces where going wide rather than high is preferable, such as that awkward spot under the stairs. Elephant ear plants are simple to grow. Most of these plants prefer rich, moist soil and can be grown in full sun, but they prefer partial shade, which makes them ideal for growing indoors. Proper drainage is essential for controlling water distribution and avoiding root rot.

Fishtail Palm (Caryota)


This bushy palm's lush, jagged-edged leaves will transport any room to the tropics. Fishtail palms are extremely thirsty plants. Make sure the soil drains well before attempting to keep it consistently moist. 

However, to provide this plant with the best living conditions, provide it with adequate indirect sunlight exposure, particularly in the early morning and late afternoon. If you're growing it indoors, take it outside for air, cleaning, and sunlight on a regular basis.

Bird of Paradise (Caesalpinia)


With a Bird of Paradise, you can transform that dull and empty corner into a tropical oasis. Its large, banana-like leaves fan out to form an eye-catching display, and mature plants produce bright orange bird-like flowers in the warmer months. Although this plant's natural habitat is in a sunny, tropical location, it can be grown indoors with plenty of sunlight. 

Birds of Paradise prefer moist (but not soggy) soil that can dry out slightly between waterings. Avoid overwatering by not allowing the soil to completely dry through the pot. Allow the top 2" - 3" of soil to dry between waterings, but keep the soil below that moist.
