Choosing Tall Indoor Plants
Indoor plants can add to the decor of the home, as well as to help add oxygen to the air. If you want to choose tall indoor plants, then it’s important to choose tall indoor plants that will work best in your climate as well as with the amount of light and humidity in your home. For the best-looking tall indoor plants in your home, choose ones that suit your plant care skill level. Research the plants you’re considering to make sure you’ll be able to follow the watering and fertilizing instructions properly. If you’re new at caring for tall indoor plants, choose ones that are considered hardy and fairly easy care. If you want a tropical, dramatic look in a fairly easy care, very tall, bushy houseplant, the Rhapis excelsa, or lady palm tree, may be a good choice.
It’s often seen in office buildings and shopping centers, as it can thrive in minimum light and low humidity. The lady palm tree can reach up to 13 feet (4 m) tall though, so it’s only suitable for above-average ceiling heights. Common household placements for tall indoor plants are entryways and living room corners. Pairs of tall house plants may be placed on either side of a dining room cabinet or a window. When choosing taller plants to fill in spaces in your home, don’t forget about their width. A bushy plant that will require constant pruning to prevent it from blocking a walkway may not thrive if you prune it too much.
