It’s getting to that time of year and all of a sudden the days are getting shorter and darkness is creeping upon us. Trees turn that burnt yellow, orange and red we all love and it’s time to prep for winter. So what plants should you decorate your interiors with? Delve in and discover how to brighten up your space with these gorgeous plants.
Try Your Hands On A Ficus Altissima 'Yellow Gem'
The delicate pale green veins contrasted against her bright green leaves will brighten up even the gloomiest of days. She loves bright indirect light but be careful not to scorch her. She’s a sensitive lady and too much sun can damage her leaves. Lucky for us, there’s no need to worry until the warmer months. Coming in a 10cm wide pot, she’ll sit perfectly in one of our medium-sized pots.Take a delve into our wide selection!
How About Some Ivy, Beautiful Ivy?
Following up, Ivy. They’re just one of those plants that are very underrated. However, they’re super easy to look after and grow at a rapid rate. Perfect for all plant parents alike, they grace you with plush green foliage all year round. They can tolerate less than ideal conditions and are perfect for adding to those gloomier-looking corners.
For our autumn collection, there’s no doubt Satin Pothos is top of our list. Trailing up to 3 meters in length, she looks great cascading from a hanging pot or the side of a cabinet. Her gorgeous, silver-brushed leaves add that extra dazzle during autumn months, right through to Winter. And if you’re feeling fancy, she looks extra dapper with a set of fairy lights to brighten up your space. However, to keep her striking variegations she prefers plenty of bright indirect light.
Following shortly after, the Marble Queen Pothos is not one to forget. She’s one you can ‘set and forget’ and doesn’t require a lot of sunlight or fuss to survive. So if you’re looking to brighten up those dark spaces, she’s your top candidate. Although she’s a slower grower, she can grow up to 3 meters long. She’ll bring that tropical, jungle feel and make any space look more lavish.
Not Sure Where To Start? Try a Succulent or Cactus
Succulents and cacti are great autumn plants. No matter the weather, they always look great. Plus, they give off that holiday vibe we all miss during the colder months. And if you’re feeling super festive, they look rather dapper decorated with fairy lights!
One of the more unfamiliar and stranger-looking cacti, the Fishbone Cactus. Full of character and jazz, this plant will bring joy into your house! Their seaweed-like structures makes them look like they’ve crawled straight from the ocean. Coming from subtropical regions, these stunners prefer warmer conditions. So during these cooler months, keep them out of reach from cold drafts. Other than that, they’re low maintenance and super fun to have around!
Want Something Low-Maintenance? Try a Snake Plant or a Sansevieria
If you’re looking for low-maintenance and resilient housemates, a Sansevieria is the one for you. Known for their gorgeous dappled green sword-like leaves, Snake Plants are a sight to behold. They’re also one of the easiest houseplants and almost death resistant! You can place them pretty much anywhere and they’ll still thrive. And now the days are getting shorter, it’s good to know that these plants don’t need too much light to survive. Just water them once a month and they’ll be perfectly happy sitting in the darkest of corners.
So what do we have in store for you? Well, we have the classics you might recognise and some rarer, hard-to-find goodies. They come in all different shapes and sizes, little and large. Probably the first on your mind, the Laurentii never fail to impress. Her elegant green leaves boarded with creamy yellow margins look perfect on any shelf or desk. Or maybe the Zeylanica, famous for her gorgeous long green marbled throngs.
Perhaps you want a more compact plant, such as the Black Dragon variety. But what if you like the more unusual look plants? We have just the thing. Take a look at the Whale Fin Snake Plant. Rare and hard to find, this green baby is bound to spark some interesting conversations. We have plenty more so come and take a look!
So hopefully by now, you’re feeling extra ready for those Autumnal months. If you want to feel even more inspired, take a look at all the other plants we have. Little and large, we stock them all. And don’t forget to wrap up extra warm over these next cold months!
