Make your home a greener one with these 5 spring houseplants

Make your home a greener one with these 5 spring houseplants


The days are getting longer as the nights are getting lighter and we’re all here for it, Spring has officially sprung! So, as many of you begin that annual spring clean and start to move furniture around the house, we want you to pause for a minute.

Taking a long hard look at your space and asking yourself which of our top 5 spring houseplants would be a perfect fit in your home? 

Dracaena Lemon Lime Tree 

Now we can’t lie, we’ve put this plant in the number one spot because it’s our favourite vibrant spring space filler. This indoor plant sits within the Dracaena family and gets its Lemon Lime name from its colourful foliage. If a tree is a little big, check out the smaller Dracaena Lemon Lime plant.

CARE TIPS: Place this plant in medium to bright indirect light. This Dracaena likes its soil to dry out between watering. If the top 1-2 inches of soil are dry, give your Lemon Lime water.

Spleenworts Plant

This exotic houseplant comes in at number two. This plant has many names, the botanical name being Asplenium and also commonly known the Bird’s Nest Fern. We love this plant as it’s a perfect addition to any bathroom or kitchen. Two rooms that are often overlooked when it comes to indoor plants.

CARE TIPS: Keep the plant in a humid environment and water regularly, the spleenworts fern prefers moist soil. It can also tolerate low levels of indirect sunlight.  

Kentia Palm

The Kentia Palm takes the number three spot as a fantastic low-maintenance larger palm. Similar to that of the Areca, the Kentia Palm is great for purifying the air in your home. They provide an amazing tropical and leafy feel for any room of the home. 

CARE TIPS: Between watering allow the top of the soil to dry out. Also place your palm in a spot with bright, indirect light but don’t worry too much as it can also cope in more shaded areas of the home. 

Ficus Microcarpa Ginseng

Let’s stay health-conscious this spring and bring your attention to our rare plant range with the Ficus Microcarpa Ginseng. A rare plant that is native to South and Eastern Asian countries. You may have also heard the plant being called a Taiwan Ficus or Potbelly Fig. They are often recommended to the novice bonsai fan as a beginner plant due to their easy-care qualities.

CARE TIPS: Give your plant a generous amount of water whenever you notice the top couple of inches of soil are dry.  

Croton Mammi 

Last but not least is the stunning and vibrant Croton Mammi or to fill a slightly larger space and the amazing conversation starter the Croton ‘Dreadlock’. Both of these plants are part of the Codiaeum family. The curly multi-coloured ridged foliage makes them the perfect plant to brighten up your home ready for summer. 

CARE TIPS: This plant likes light water regularly. Try not to leave it in soggy soil but relatively moist soil should allow it to thrive.  

All our indoor plants are sourced from the most reputable suppliers across the Netherlands and the UK. We seek to bring fresh and new varieties on a regular basis that you don’t see in your everyday plant shop.
