Trees are terrific items to have in your lawn. They clean the air, they provide shade and privacy, they are great for climbing and they’re beautiful to look at too. While many trees are simply too big to consider growing indoors, there are lots of trees that make wonderful accents to the inside of your home.
If you are a fan of the Victorian Era you might have seen images or seen pictures of this time with parlor palms sprucing up the, well, parlor. The adapt well to low light and humidity and they’re on the list of NASA’s 50 Plants That Clean the Air. And face it, they are breezy and fancy and who wouldn’t want one in their living room in a large ceramic pot?
If you would like a touch of Christmas in your house year round, what about a Norfolk Pine? They are basically baby Christmas trees which love bright light and moist soil.
If you like big bold statements you will need a Fiddle Leaf Fig Tree in your living room. These trees have large sculptured leaves that provide the atmosphere of the tropics without being weepy or wispy. These trees adore light but do not like drafts so keep them away from windows and doors and you’re ready to go.
The Ficus is perhaps the most popular indoor tree there’s, heck, they even make a fake version that you just dust once in a while and forget about. The real version is in fact a weeping fig tree if you want to get technical, and they come in different textures and heights so they are perfect for any room, any where.
Love the tropics but live where there seems to be perpetual winter? Then what about adding a Majesty Palm for your home? Throw on the heat, watch the palm tree and pretend you’re on the beach, even if it is January and there’s a blizzard waging outside. They have thick woody stems and pointy leaves that come in a variety of blue to blue green colors and have yellow, cream or white tones to them also.
