The best house plants for every zodiac sign
Want to fill your home with house plants that align with your energy? We’ve picked out the best house plants for every zodiac sign. So, whether you’re a spotlight-seeking Leo or a peace-loving Taurus, you’ll find a green companion that’s right for you.
Busy Aries aren’t the most green fingered of the signs, so low-maintenance plants will suit busy rams. If you’ve got space for plants in your busy life, go for ones that don’t require constant attention. Choose a pretty kalanchoe or striking tillandsia plants, which drink up humidity in the air.
As a lover of a conflict-free life, the aptly named and low-maintenance peace lily is the perfect option for level-headed Taureans. Or, put your determined streak to good use and spend time cultivating the stunning red-green croton.
There’s a plant to suit both sides of the twin flame Gemini. Looking for something to suit your quiet, emotional side? The heart-shaped anthurium needs just a little love to produce its waxy blooms. And if your fun-loving side is more dominant, you could opt for something that’s easier to care for, like a cactus or jade plant.
Cancerians are known for being sensitive and often dreamers, meaning whimsical plants will look best in your home. The asparagus fern is easy to care for and brightens up a room with its fluffy leaves. If you’re up to the challenge, nurture the sweet-smelling gardenia and you’ll be treated to fragrant blooms.
Leos naturally command attention, so it’s only right that their houseplants do too. The beautiful orchid is a plant that’s regal enough for a lion, but it will only flourish in perfect conditions. Looking for an easy option that still makes a statement? A red aglaonema needs just a little bit of water to produce its vibrant, red-tipped leaves.
You’re probably pretty detailed oriented and love everything to be just right, so pick houseplants that make your inner perfectionist happy. Bird of Paradise is a chic, sleek addition to your home, as are laidback snake plants, despite their deceptively ornate appearance.
Dreamy libras are known for being creative, meaning they’re likely to be drawn to plants that have a story to tell. Air plants are perfect for those born under this air sign, as is the romantic English ivy, which will give your home a little bit of countryside cottage magic.
Bold Scorpios need plants that match their assertive approach to life, like the striking crocodile fern and monstera (also known as Swiss Cheese). They’ll fill your room with bold, deep green leaves that command attention, without needing too much upkeep.
Sagittarius aren’t afraid to do things a little differently. If you’ve got the time, energy and know-how, the Venus fly trap has the wow factor. But if you don’t fancy caring for such a needy plant, try the regal calatheas instead.
Capricorns often like to stay inside the lines, so a classic aloe vera is the perfect pairing. Fancy branching out a little? Go for the oxalis, which come in bright hues ranging from violet to scarlet red.
As the most unique of all the signs, it’s only right that your houseplants reflect Aqaurius’ quirky nature. Go for a spotted begonia if you’re looking for something that’s easy to care for or step up to the challenge of the thick-veined alocasia for maximum wow-factor.
Creative yet often happy to keep to themselves, Pisces will love plants that enhance their precious space. Try a unique ‘String of Pearls’ (or Senecio) or the elegant ZZ plant if you’re looking for a larger option.
