1.26Does winter have you missing the greenery and life of the outdoors? Avoid the winter blues and bring life indoors with these easy-to-keep-alive house plants. The best part about indoor plants? They help clean the air in your home and add a bit of decorative touch to your space. Check out D.R. Horton’s list of favorite indoor house plants below:

Pothos

What’s so great about it:

This plant is great for air-purification, as it helps strip your home of toxins in the air. With its trailing stems, it works great in a hanging basket or as a climbing plant.  

How to care for it:

Pothos do well in normal room temperatures and various lighting conditions, but will fare better with at least a bit of light exposure. Because they can grow up to eight feet long or more, simply trim back their stems to your desired length.

Succulents

What’s so great about it:

Technically a variety of plant, succulents come in many shapes and sizes but they have one thing in common – they are incredibly easy to care for! They are also small and look beautiful clustered together in various combinations in terrariums to add life to a bookshelf or tabletop. 

How to care for it:

Popular varieties like Aloe Vera do great in sunny spots in your home and require very little water. In fact, over-watering is usually the most common cause of a succulent’s demise. 

 Fiddle-Leaf Tree

What’s so great about it:

Open almost any interior design-themed magazine or decorating blog and you’ll likely find this tree that has gained in popularity in the last few years for its beautiful aesthetic. The best part? You can now find them at most large hardware stores that carry plants.   

How to care for it:

The Fiddle-Leaf Tree loves temperatures around 65-75 degrees and exposure to medium to bright light, so it will likely do best in a window that gets a lot of sun throughout the day. Be careful not to over-water and let the surface of the soil dry out some between watering.
