Choosing indoor plants for luxury apartments

When designing your interior, you must be mindful of maintaining the same style and theme in every room. That is important even when it comes to choosing plants. Therefore, we’ve prepared a list of indoor plants for luxury apartments that will enrich your space and make it feel fresher and more inviting.

Bird of Paradise

Bird of paradise is one of the visually most powerful house plants. It’s perfect for homeowners who love green plants as well as plants that grow flowers. And not just any type of flowers – these are probably some of the most interesting and beautiful flowers you will ever see. These plants ooze luxury and unassuming taste.

Remember that the bird of paradise needs humidity and frequent exposure to the sun to grow, so make sure to enable this for it. Also, it requires more space than your ordinary house plant, but it’s definitely worth it. Anyone who enters your home will be instantly amazed by its gorgeous dark leaves and stunning avian-looking flowers.

Jade Pothos Totem


Jade Pothos looks great in hanging flowerpots.

The jade pothos totem could be a perfect centerpiece for your luxurious living room with its lush, wild, exotic, and dramatic energy. Not only that it’s beautiful, but it’s also very easy to take care of. And, as it doesn’t take up much room, you can practically keep it anywhere. You can see below how lovely it looks in a hanging pot.

Even if you need to organize a last-minute move and pack and relocate your entire living room, you’ll be happy to know that jade pothos is very resilient, and you’ll be able to transfer it in no time. With the help of experienced movers, every detail from your living room will be moved in the safest way possible.

Common fig


If you thought fig trees only grow outside, you’d probably be surprised to know that the common fig is one of the best indoor plants for luxury apartments. In areas where figs can’t grow outside, they’re actually very common as indoor plants.

When it comes to taking care of the common fig, have in mind that it needs to be watered two to three times a week, depending on the humidity in your area. Also, this plant requires medium to bright light.

Not only that it looks beautiful, but, in a way, this plant is also a living cultural artifact and a great conversation starter. Its leaves are world-famous as they appear in the Biblical story of Adam and Eve. Namely, Adam’s intimates were obscured by the leaf of this plant. It’s a fascinating fact to share with your guests.

Chinese Fan Palm

If you decorated your home in a minimalistic way, the Chinese fan palm is the perfect choice for you. With its intricate details and angular shape, it can add an energetic and exotic vibe to your home. The most interesting thing about this plant is that it has fan-like leaves and a fountain-like growth pattern. Viewed from afar, it almost looks like a fountain with green water coming out.

Although it’s classified as a tree, it is small enough to place somewhere in your apartment when young. However, make sure to keep it exposed to daylight as it needs plenty of it to survive. If you don’t have enough space to enable this, it’s better to look for a different plant for your luxurious apartment.

Philodendron Cordatum

This elegant plant with lovely heart-shaped leaves is one of the most low-maintenance house plants. It doesn’t grow too big, and it doesn’t take up much space. However, keep in mind that it needs a lot of indirect light.
