In­door plants were a big hit in 2016 and the love af­fair is set to con­tinue.

While some will be con­tent with a win­dowsill of herbs in the kitchen, large leafy plants in the liv­ing room, bath­room and bed­room are the go.

Matt Leacy says the ten­dril-like leaves of rhip­salis will prove pop­u­lar thanks to its easy care na­ture.

“It is a fan­tas­tic plant to have in a bright in­ter­nal space grow­ing re­ally well in hang­ing bas­kets and need­ing lit­tle at­ten­tion,” he says.

Founder of re­tailer Gar­den Life, Richard Unsworth agrees that trail­ing plants will be pop­u­lar as we fall for their un­struc­tured charms but he sug­gests that suc­cu­lents and cac­tuses will come into their own as well.

“Some cacti and suc­cu­lents are great for in­doors and prickly pear is very hot right now,“he says.

Pop­u­lar plants such as the large-leafed fid­dle leaf fig will con­tinue to thrive.
