Having a variety of plants in your home is key to starting an urban jungle. You want to mix plant size, textures, colors, and leaf size to keep your indoor jungle from seeming boring. Try mixing something tall and slim, like a fiddle leaf fig or snake plant, with something leafy and trailing, like pothos or common ivy. Using plant stands and macramé hangers are a great way to show off your plants at different levels.
Playing with your pots is a fun way to personalize your space. Try using teacups or painting old pots for something new and unique.
One of the reasons many of us love hiking trails or walking through forests is the wonderful scents. Lavender, jasmine, and lemongrass are great ways to add scents to your jungle.
The bathroom is the most humid place in your home and makes a great tropical environment for plants. Some humidity loving plants include ferns, calathea, peace lilies, and philodendrons.
Kitchen windows are a common place for small plants like aloe, cacti, and succulents. These require little care and can live in a wide variety of conditions.
Large plants are a great way to start up a jungle without your space feeling crowded. Some great statement plants are Alocasia, Bird of Paradise, banana trees, and Swiss cheese plants.
