A home without house plants is just simply not acceptable! Plants bring life and character to a home and are simply essential in any rooms decor. I've put together a list of my favourite house plants just for you guys so enjoy!

Cacti has to be my first choice! They're beautiful and go with a great aesthetic - I've got 3 of them on my windowsill!

.2 'Aloe Vera'

Aloe vera are simply gorgeous plants! They go really well with the aesthetic of cacti if you're looking to mix and match your plants. But not only that, they have a lot of uses as well. If you cut one leaf off you can use the gel inside and it works wonders for your skin!

.3 'Bird's nest snake plant'

My favourite type of snake plant - the bird's nest snake plant! It has such a wonderful pattern that can come in a variety of different colours. Personally, I think this would look just perfect on a bookcase or in the garden.

.4 'Cylindrical spear snake plant'

This plant not only looks gorgeous and smells amazing but can be used in other ways to improve your health. For example, when made into a tea, orchids can aid eyesight and help improve your immune system.

.7 'Spider plant'

A gorgeous indoor plant that helps clean the air. This would look amazing on a windowsill! (Please note, if you own one of these, or plan to, 'do not put about a radiator', it will harm the plant.

.8 'Gardenia'

Gardenia plants are truly beautiful. However, they are mainly found outside because keeping them indoors requires a lot of maintenance!

.9 'Bonsai tree'

Bonsai trees will be your life long friend if you look after them properly. They are beautiful small trees and truly make amazing house plants.

.10 'Cheese plants'

Cheese plants can grow over 10ft tall so be prepared to clear some extra space! They have amazing leaves and would be perfect for a living room decor.
I grow plants for many reasons: to please my eye or to please my soul, to challenge the elements or to challenge my patience, for novelty or for nostalgia, but mostly for the joy in seeing them grow.
