Choose your perfect plant in 3 steps

You feel that the time has come to choose your perfect plant. You are in the right place, you feel you have the financial and emotional stability to take on the responsibility of caring for a living thing: you are ready to have a plant (or several) at home, but you don't know where to start. Maybe you have a dark past, where you have adopted some unsuspecting plant that has ended up drier than your ex's heart at the bottom of the rubbish bin. Don't worry, this will be a safe and enjoyable experience.

Choosing the perfect plant is not that complicated and we will help you do it.

Step 1. Know thyself

Although it may sound like a self-help book, the first step before you go looking for a plant is to know yourself, your habits and needs. If you are a forgetful person, who travels frequently or doesn't have much patience, then a plant that requires continuous and dedicated care like an exotic orchid may not be the best choice, even if you find its flower beautiful. In that case, the Raven Plant or the Snake Plant might be your best choice. what are you looking for from your plant? colour, design? something easy to care for?

Step 2. Knowing your space will help you choose your perfect plant

Like humans, each type of plant has its own needs in order to survive and, just like us, some are more demanding than others. There are plants that you can put literally anywhere and they will continue to grow and develop. There are others that require particular light conditions.

If you want a plant for your desk, check the conditions of that particular place: light, temperature, space. is there an air conditioner or heater nearby? is it in front of a window? This will give you an idea of whether the plant you want to take can live there.

Step 3. Find the plant you need

We know there are hundreds of plant species and it can be overwhelming, especially with the space you have available, and even more so when you are a beginner. That's why we've grouped the plants by the most common requirements.

We invite you to browse through the sections for each plant if you have found one that has caught your eye, to learn more about their habits and requirements.

We also have articles on plants for special conditions, such as low light, plants that require direct sun, winter bloomers and more.

Plants for those who like colour

If what you need is a plant with personality, that brings colour and brightness to the space; that becomes a focal point but is easy to care for because you're a beginner; then go for a tricolour maranta or prayer flower. These plants with oval leaves and vibrant colours will make you fall in love with them. The calathea triostar has luscious pink tones, while the croton has super vibrant primary colours.

Plants for small spaces

If you're short on space, you can buy a succulent, such as echeveria elegans. Dumb cane, candelabra tree, prayer flower and Chinese Money Plant are safe choices. They are small plants that don't take up much space and you can control their growth with the size of the pot.

Plants for large spaces

For offices, corridors and large spaces that require eye-catching plants that fill the space rather than getting lost in it, you can opt for a lounge palm. Adam's rib, an olive tree, areca palm and purple-leaf fig can grow as tall as you allow and will be perfect for large spaces.

Plants for those who want to play with design

Plants are fabulous focal points as they are constantly growing and changing. They have such particular colours, sizes and characteristics that allow you to play with the height and design of a space. For example, if you want a plant with height, you can look for a Brazilian trunk or a Sansevieria. Ĺ Boston ferns and potos are drooping, so they can be adapted to spaces that need to highlight this feature. All of the Calathea family are perfect for playing with colours, while the Areca palm gives a wonderful tropical feel.
