3 of the best indoor plants to invest in this January

Now that 2020 is a thing of the past, we’re sure you will agree that a new perspective is in order. So, in the spirit of starting afresh, let’s begin the year by turning over a new leaf in the home. Three of January’s best indoor plants are grown by LVG Plants. And luckily for you, we’re here to share some handy care tips so you can kick off 2021 with a bang of gorgeous greenery. Start the year with the best indoor plants:

1. Ficus lyrata

A stately house plant sought out by homeowners and office decorators, the Ficus lyrata or Fiddle Leaf Fig is a natural focal point, showcasing an impressive display of large, violin-shaped leaves. The plant is native to tropical parts of Africa, so grows best in warm, humid climates. It looks particularly stately when displayed in baskets and decorative planters.

Care tips:

If you are interested in purchasing the famous Ficus lyrata for your living space, take a look at the care tips below:

  • Place the plant in an area with plenty of indirect, bright light.
  • Position the plant in an area that is out of the way of cold draughts.
  • Water the plant when the soil feels dry at the top, but be careful not to overwater.
  • Mist the leaves every so often.
  • During the growing season, fertilise the plant with a weak solution about once per month.

2. Monstera adansonii

Next up we have the Monstera adansonii, a relative of the Swiss Cheese Plant (Monstera deliciosa). This attractive vining plant is easy to care for, provided it is grown in a moist environment. Its leaves appear to have little holes in them, adding to the visual appeal. If you’re investing in the Monstera adansonii, consider planting it in a hanging basket – the effect is just lovely.

Care tips:

The Monstera adansonii requires similar care to the Ficus lyrata. Explore the tips below: 

  • Place the plant in an area with indirect light or moderate shade.
  • Water the plant when the soil feels dry at the top, roughly once per week.
  • Mist the leaves every so often.
  • During the growing season, fertilise the plant with a weak solution about once per month.

3. Dracaena marginata Sun Ray

Another indoor plant that flourishes in the January heat, the Dracaena marginata Sun Ray is a stunning addition to home décor. With its minimal care requirements, tall stature, and vibrant striped leaves, the Sun Ray has become a popular indoor plant choice in homes around South Africa.

Care tips:

Dracaena grow best in humid climates, but they are hardy enough to survive in colder, drier conditions. If this houseplant tickles your fancy, discover more care tips below:
