Calathea

Add a tropical touch to your home with this beautiful bold-leafed plant which loves sunshine and high humidity. Native to the Brazilian rainforest, Calatheas thrive in bright, indirect light. While they can tolerate some shade, ample sunlight encourages growth and vibrant foliage. These stunning houseplants like their soil to be evenly moist with little dry periods between waterings. To avoid browning leaves, water with filtered or distilled water, or rainwater rather than tap water. They also love a good misting.

Chamaedorea

Also known as, Parlour Palm.

Chlorophytum

Also known as, a Spider Plant.

Dracaena

Also known as the dragon tree, plants in the Dracaena genus are easy to care for and very rewarding to grow. With their striking tropical leaves and resilient nature, they are an excellent choice for beginners. While they enjoy bright, indirect light they can tolerate lower light conditions too. Dracaenas prefer underwatering to overwatering, so allow the soil to dry out between waterings. If you notice yellowing leaves, you may be overwatering. Be aware, they are toxic to pets.

Ficus Benjamina

Also known as, Weeping Fig.

Nephrolepis Fern

Also known as, Boston Fern.

Peperomia

Peperomias are a group of small, easy-going houseplants with waxy and often highly textured leaves. They come from the Brazilian rainforest, so it’s not surprising that they prefer warm environments. For best results, place in a bright spot that gets plenty of indirect light.

Phalaenopsis

Sansevieria

Also known as, Mother-in-Law’s Tongue or snake plant.

Schefflera Arboricola

Spathiphyllum

The peace lily, or Spathiphyllum, is one of the most popular houseplants we sell thanks to its striking good looks and easy-going nature. Being rainforest plants, they like a warm, humid and semi-shaded environment. Peace lilies are very good at letting you know when they need watering as they’ll start to wilt. All they need is a bit of water and some TLC to make them blooming happy again!​

Streptocarpus

Streptocarpus decadent purple flowers.

Also known as, Cape Primrose.

Yucca

Yucca plants are a good option for busy people as they are easy to grow, tolerant of neglect and can be live for a long time. Unlike many houseplants, they can cope with bright sunshine so are a good plant for a sunny corner where little else will thrive.

Zamioculcas

Also known as, ZZ Plant.

Codiaeum

Also known as, Croton.

Cyclamen

Florist’s cyclamen or indoor cyclamen make lovely houseplants, providing a much-needed pop of colour through late autumn and winter. With beautiful green and silver foliage, their striking petals come in shades of white, pink and red. It’s no wonder they are such popular gifts! There are two top tips to ensure your cyclamen thrive. The first is to keep them out of direct light and the second is to avoid overwatering.

Amaryllis

Perfect for adding a pop of colour to your home, amaryllis (Hippeastrum) will bloom year after year if you care for them correctly. Available in a range of gorgeous shades including red, burgundy, pink, peach and orange, it’s no wonder this festive flowering plant makes such a popular Christmas gift. A member of the Narcissus family, amaryllis like a spot in full light but not full sun. Its flowers can reach a diameter of 20cm which is what really gives this stunning plant the wow factor.

Poinsettia

Welcome to Christmas in a pot! No other houseplant quite captures the festive spirit like the Poinsettia. Euphorbia pulcherrima’s scarlet bracts always provide a cheery splash of colour at this time of year. Red is not the only colour – discover pretty pinks, oranges, creams and whites too. Aim to keep Poinsettias away from radiators in indirect sunshine and dust the leaves to keep them looking their best. Water lightly when the soil has started to dry out. Show them a little love and you’ll be able to enjoy your festive plant well beyond Christmas!
