Living with Indoor Trees

Larger plants or trees will add the 'wow' factor to your home's decor with the addition 
of different leaf textures, colors and shapes. These plants will freshen the indoor air, too.

 

fiddle leaf fig

Fiddle-leaf Fig (Ficus lyrata): Large and glossy, violin-shaped leaves grow on slender, dark stems and branching.
It is known for its popular tree-form that pairs well with contemporary home environments. This ficus thrives in
bright, filtered light and consistent moisture. It's a beautiful addition to a bathroom that has ample space, bright
light and extra humidity.

 

Majesty Palm 

Majesty Palm (Ravenea rivularis): This graceful, low maintenance palm tree is perfect for the indoor home. It
thrives best with lots of light so keep it happy near a sunny window. Watering is simple... Never let the soil dry
out completely. Keep in mind, in its native habitat, this plants lives along the banks of rivers and streams.
However, it needs to be planted in a pot with good drainage to avoid root rot.

 

Madagascar Dragon Tree

Madagascar Dragon Tree (Dracaena marginata): Also known as the Red-edged Dracaena, it has narrow green
leaves with pink or red edging that grows on the ends of multiple stems or trunks. The grassy, upright habit of
the larger plants look like living sculpture in the home. It is a popular indoor plant because it can tolerate a wide
range of lighting conditions from high to low light. Simply water plant when the top inch of soil starts to dry and
give leaves a good misting now and then to keep it looking its best.

 

ponytail palm

Ponytail Palm or Elephant Foot Tree (Beaucarnea recurvata): What a unique plant/tree! It is actually not a
palm but a succulent in the Agave family (where it gets its low maintenance characteristics). It's a long-lived plant
with slender, curly leaves that sit on top of a bulb-like trunk, resembling an elephant's foot. Although the plant
prefers bright light, it tolerates bright light only half the time. Since water is stored in its trunk, allow the
soil to dry out between watering. No need to fuss over watering this one!
