Our top 5 favourite houseplants

I am a self-confessed plant mum. Some of my plant babies look worse for wear, but I love them all the same. Houseplants are having a moment on Instagram right now, with aesthetically-pleasing photos of sunlit conservatories filled with lush greenery going viral. If you're on the hunt for a new houseplant, here's a list of my current favourites.

  1. Mother in Law's Tongue/Snake plant

This hardy plant is one of the easiest to take care of. It doesn't require frequent watering and will survive being neglected for a while. Snakes plants are also said to release oxygen overnight.

2. Boston Fern

These shaggy looking plants can transform your space. Think maximum impact but minimal effort. People love this plant for its humidifying and purifying properties.

3. Peace Lily

Peace Lilies make a gorgeous addition to your home, with their elegant leaves and delicate white flowers. Another low maintenance plant, Peace Lilies thrive in bright, indirect light and humid conditions.

4. Rubber Plant

Perfect for those of you who are impatient, Rubber Plants grow quicker than most, making them perfect for filling up empty spaces. Their glossy forest green leaves are beautiful and essentially thrive on neglect.

5. Fishbone Cactus

I love this plant for its interesting foliage and the textured look it creates. This one is best suited to those just starting to dip their toe in the houseplant world, as it doesn't need frequent watering or a lot of sunlight.
