Popular indoor trees
If you like the idea of an indoor tree, it is best to consider its location before
you buy to ensure that the tree will be well-suited. It is a good idea to assess how much natural light your tree will enjoy. Most plants need bright spaces but no direct sunlight. Another important consideration is whether your chosen tree will need a humid environment. If the answer is ‘yes’ this will involve regular misting during the warmer months.
There are a wide variety of popular indoor plants that be bought in much larger ‘tree’ sizes measuring several metres in height. Some of them like Rubber plants (Ficus roberta) and Swiss Cheese Plants (Monstera deliciosa) are low maintenance and grow easily. Kentia Palms (Howea forsteriana) and the various different types of fig trees are other good choices. If you buy one of these, it is a good idea to transplant it into a much larger pot before settling it into its new home.
If your chosen position for a plant has plenty of sunlight, a citrus tree could be a fun choice and an olive tree will certainly create a lovely Mediterranean ambiance. The Karaka tree from New Zealand is another tree to consider, but this one will need a minimum temperature of 20ºC all year round. There are many different species to choose from. Be dramatic! Add a tree to your space that suits both your style and the room you have available.
