ALOE

This suc­cu­lent with long pointed leaves has well known medic­i­nal prop­er­ties. It can grow three feet high for big im­pact in­doors. Smaller va­ri­eties like the pop­u­lar aloe vera, work great in small, sunny in­door spa­ces. Thrives in sun­light and needs water about once a week.

DIFFENBACHIA

The leaves of this grand in­door plant can grow up to a foot long, and pro­vide a trop­i­cal-look­ing kitchen or din­ing room. The whole plant can grow six feet high for a cheery room fo­cal point. Medium or low light­ing con­di­tions from a kitchen win­dow works fine. Soil that is kept evenly moist, which means wa­ter­ing about 2-3 times a week, should get this guy go­ing.

BOS­TON FERNS

Hang a Bos­ton fern in your kitchen-din­ing space for a bright, frilly, fuss-free pop of green. This plant needs a medium amount of sun and likes to stay moist. It craves hu­mid­ity, and loves the shade. Per­fect for a shady kitchen win­dow or low ledge.
