Houseplants are the way to go if you love plants but don’t want to get your hands dirty. Their low maintenance and energy-saving features make them an ideal decorative addition to any space in your home or office. They can even offer health benefits to you and your family members. 

Houseplants have always been popular for their ability to purify the air, reduce stress and anxiety, and simply look nice in your home or office space. As more information about the benefits of houseplants continues to be revealed, it’s no surprise that more people are choosing to incorporate them into their daily lives.

Take a look at the hottest houseplant trends of 2022 below!

Boston Fern

Most people can’t wait to put their houseplants outside for the summer. Unfortunately, when you take your plants out of doors, the trouble is that you lose control over what kind of care they get and whether or not they get watered properly. While wide varieties are fine without regular watering, others may suffer from unsightly brown leaf tips or drooping leaves due to overwatering.

Boston ferns have the ability to thrive in low-light conditions. In addition, they need very little water, so they make an excellent houseplant all year round. In fact, some indoor plant experts say that one fern is enough to freshen up any room. As well as being low maintenance, Boston Ferns add oxygen into the air while removing toxins like formaldehyde—so it’s a win-win!

Jade Plant

Another trend in the houseplant world is cacti. Yes, you read that right, cacti! 

Many people are purchasing them for their low maintenance. In addition, cacti do not require much water and can survive in dry conditions, which means they are perfect for those with limited space or who want to reduce their water usage.

Devil’s Ivy

Devil’s Ivy is a perennial plant that thrives in the shade. The stem is green with heart-shaped leaves and has red berries at the top. It can grow up to 3 feet tall and be used as a ground cover. Unfortunately, devil’s ivy is toxic to cats and dogs, so make sure you keep them away from it, or they might get sick.

Philodendron Micans

Genus Philodendron is one of many ornamental plants in its family, including Alocasia, Anthurium, and Monsteras. Thought to have originated in South America and cultivated across North America, they are popular houseplants for their bright green foliage and small size. Philodendron Micans is a hybrid plant with chameleon-like coloring that changes from purple to orange depending on the lighting.


Kalanchoe has been known to clean indoor air of dangerous compounds such as benzene and formaldehyde, making them a trendy yet vital part of any healthy home.  

These plants are also simple to maintain, which is perfect for the busy urban dweller who doesn’t want to spend too much time tending to their houseplants. In addition, these succulents are generally low-maintenance, with some varieties flowering year-round while others will produce flowers during the winter months.

Parlour Palm

The Parlour Palm (Chamaedorea elegans) is native to Mexico and has graced ornate Spanish homes for centuries as a houseplant. 

Homeowners are now finding ways to incorporate these fashionable plants into their own interiors. Parlour palm has become popular in recent years with homeowners and interior designers alike, who have been integrating them into both modern, minimalistic spaces as well as vintage-inspired rooms. Potted parlour palms can be used in the living room to create conversation pieces or on the patio to brighten up the space in cooler months.


A beautiful, vibrant houseplant grows in a well drainage pot and is sure to add a splash of color to any room. Due to its long stems, the Chinese Money Plant, also known as Pilea Peperomioides, will only grow if it receives plenty of sunlight and minimal watering. 

Strelitzia — Bird of Paradise

Strelitzia is a fun way to bring a touch of nature into your home. It is also known as bird-of-paradise and the queen of indoor plants. Its flowers look fantastic in midcentury modern vases. They make excellent hanging decorations and work well with other plants such as hibiscus or bougainvilleas.

Areca Palm

Also known as Dypsis lutescens, areca palms are a popular indoor plant in United States homes. With their vibrant leaves and bold patterning, they’re one of our favorite houseplants in 2022. In addition, these plants are extremely easy to care for, which makes them popular among beginner gardeners.

Kentia palm

Maybe you’ve seen a few different kinds of houseplants in your lifetime, but never one like a Kentia palm. These palms are huge and require very little attention—they’re perfect for busy professionals who enjoy making their home look good but don’t want to spend much time or money on it. As they grow extremely slowly and can live for decades, so they are more expensive than other options.
