Tiny Plants

Tiny plants are a new trend making a big impact in the houseplant community. Their compact size and charming appearance make them an ideal choice for smaller spaces, adding a touch of green to brighten up your home. We’ve picked some of the most popular tiny plants: air plants, string of pearls, and peperomia for inspiration. We also have a new section in our houseplant department filled with tiny plants.

Air Plants

Air plants don’t require soil to grow, instead they absorb moisture and nutrients through their leaves. Their unique ability to thrive suspended in air or attached to various objects makes them incredibly versatile and impressive to display.
Air plants come in a variety of shapes and sizes. In store, we have them displayed on driftwood, in mini terrariums and on coastal shells. To care for them, simply mist a few times a week or soak them in water for about five minutes every one to two weeks. They prefer bright, indirect light and good air circulation.

String of Pearls

The string of pearls (Senecio rowleyanus) is a succulent that gets its name from its trailing stems garlanded with spherical, bead-like leaves. This plant is perfect for hanging baskets in your home, where its delicate strings cascade down, creating a stunning visual effect.
They love bright, indirect sunlight and well-draining soil. Overwatering is a common mistake, so it’s best to let the soil dry out completely between watering. These plants are relatively low maintenance and can thrive with minimal attention, making them an excellent choice for busy people who want to add greenery to their home with minimal effort.
Their unique appearance and growth make them a real conversation starter and a perfect addition to any plant collection.

Peperomia

Peperomia is a large genus of over a thousand species, known for their varied and often striking foliage. These compact plants are perfect for small spaces, with some varieties featuring thick, succulent-like leaves, while others have delicate, heart-shaped foliage.
Peperomias thrive in bright, indirect light and prefer to dry out between watering. They’re generally easy to care for and can adapt to lower light conditions, though their growth may slow.
With so many varieties to choose from, these easy-going plants are a very popular tiny plant choice.

Create your own tiny indoor garden

Creating a tiny plant section in your home can be a rewarding and aesthetically pleasing project. Start by selecting a variety of plants with different shapes, sizes, and growth habits to create visual interest. Consider using shelves, window sills, or small tables to display your collection. We also have a special section dedicated to terrariums in our houseplant area.
We’d recommend mixing and matching pots and planters to add a personal touch and we have a wide range! Miniature pots, hanging containers, and wall-mounted planters can all be used to showcase your tiny plants creatively. Ensure that each plant has its specific care needs met, with adequate light, water, and humidity. (View our care leaflets if you need a guide.)
Regularly rotate your plants to ensure even light distribution and to keep your display fresh. By dedicating a small area to tiny plants, you can enjoy the benefits of greenery in your home without needing lots of space.

Tiny plants like air plants, string of pearls and peperomia are perfect for compact living spaces, and their unique characteristics bring life and charm to any home.
