Pilea peperomioides may hail from southern China, but the plant’s sleek, coin-shaped leaves make it the ideal accessory for minimalist décor.
Carnegiea gigantea is full of personality and thrives indoors—it’s perfect for the busy home gardener. From midcentury modern environs to Southwestern spaces and sleek Danish homes, most of today’s hottest décor themes can use a tall cactus as a textural element.
Fiddle Leaf Fig
A staple of design blogs and carefully curated Instagram posts, Ficus lyrata makes a lush, leafy statement. Keep yours happy by positioning in bright, filtered light; watching for brown spots and dropped leaves (which could indicate too little or too much watering); and keeping its big leaves shiny and dust-free.
Swiss Cheese Plant
The glossy leaves of Monstera deliciosa start with a heart shape and later form holes (the "Swiss cheese" of its nickname). Popular in the modernist houses of the 1950s, this dramatic plant is experiencing a popular resurgence.
