Trees are great items to have in your yard. They clean the air, they provide shade and privacy, they are fantastic for climbing and they’re beautiful to look at too. While many trees are just too big to consider growing inside, there are lots of trees that make wonderful accents to the interior of your home. Here’s just a few:
If you are a lover of the Victorian Era you might have seen pictures or seen movies of the time with parlor palms sprucing up the, well, parlor. The adapt well to low light and humidity and they are on the list of NASA’s 50 Plants That Clean the Air. And face it, they’re breezy and elaborate and who wouldn’t want one in their living room in a large ceramic pot?
If you would like a touch of Christmas into your home year round, what about a Norfolk Pine? They are basically baby Christmas trees which love bright light and moist soil. At Christmas time you can decorate them with small bows or fairy lights, but they make a great addition to any room year round.
If you want big bold statements you will need a Fiddle Leaf Fig Tree in your living area. These trees have large sculptured leaves that give the air of the tropics without being weepy or wispy. These trees love light but do not like drafts so keep them away from doors and windows and you’re ready to go.
The Ficus is perhaps the most common indoor tree there is, heck, they even make a bogus version which you dust once in a while and forget about. The real version is actually a weeping fig tree if you would like to get technical, and they come in different textures and heights so they are perfect for any room, any where.
Enjoy the tropics but live where there appears to be perpetual winter? Then what about adding a Majesty Palm to your home? Throw on the warmth, see the palm tree and pretend you are on the beach, even if it is January and there is a blizzard waging outside. They have thick woody stems and pointy leaves that come in a variety of blue to blue green colors and have yellow, white or cream tones to them too.
