6 Indoor Plants to Help Keep You Energized This Winter

We’ve previously mentioned how great tropical plants are for your apartment, but there are also plenty of varieties that thrive in winter weather. Enliven your space and warm up the chilly season with these picks we particularly enjoy.

1. Rubber Tree

The Rubber Tree is popular because it has a striking appearance and is low maintenance. It is the perfect plant to grace your living quarters, with its large leaves that absorb harmful toxins and improve the air quality in your home.

2. Succulents

These hardy little guys can easily double as fall centerpieces, either by themselves or with the help of a pumpkin. Hollow out your gourd of choice in the same way you would hollow out a jack-o-lantern and fill the empty space with soil and a bunch of succulents.

3. Prayer Plant

The Prayer plant (also known as Maranta) is a wonderful addition to any room, with its dazzling green pattern and round leaves. It is easy to grow, requiring just enough warm water to keep the soil moist. If you live in a dry area, consider placing the prayer plant with other houseplants to help keep the humidity level high. Curious about the name? At night, the leaves will fold like praying hands.

4. Kalanchoe

The Kalanchoe(also referred to as the 'Paddle plant' on account of its broad leaves) is another variety of succulent that also happens to be a holiday staple in the florist industry. Unlike the Prayer Plant, these guys thrive in low humidity. Just be sure you place the plant near a south-facing window in the wintertime.

5. Colorful Aglaonema

The Aglaonema will thrive in almost all conditions, making it an ideal houseplant. It can handle low humidity, less light, and even the most forgetful plant parent. Just remember to water it thoroughly with breaks in between to allow the soil to dry.

6. Anthurium Red

Your Anthurium should never be exposed to direct sunlight, a fact that makes it a wonderful houseplant for winter. As long as you don't over-water or overheat, the Anthurium will bloom all winter long.

Whether you live in an apartment or a house, introducing houseplants into your life will not only improve the air quality of your home but also contribute to your overall health and happiness.
