6 Ideal Houseplants for the Bedroom

Aesthetic and easy-to-care plants that will look beautiful in the bedroom (and even improve sleep).

1. Spathiphyllum

Spathiphyllum is an unpretentious house plant that does not require complex care. It is not picky about temperature, but it needs to be watered on time, otherwise the plant will drop its leaves. 

If you buy a small plant, place it on the windowsill. It will grow faster under sunlight. Afterward, it can be transplanted into a large floor pot and placed next to the bed. The result will be a very aesthetic accent, especially when the spathiphyllum begins to produce large snow-white flowers.

A good property of spathiphyllum is that it purifies the air, this is especially useful in a sleeping room.

2. Monstera

The most fashionable indoor plant of recent years. An important feature of Monstera is that it grows quickly, producing new shoots and growing very large carved leaves. Given the size and type of leaves, Monstera is best placed in a minimalist bedroom, where there is little furniture and free space. To slow down growth, just move the monstera away from the window.

A young monstera needs to be replanted every year, after its third birthday – once every two years, and when it begins to slow down its growth – once every 3-4 years. This vine is not afraid of dry air and temperature changes, so it can be placed between the bed and the radiator. You need to water as the soil dries, you can spray it with a spray bottle.

Monstera is classified as a dangerous indoor plant, this is important to know. But she does not release the poisonous juice. Do not touch the leaves with bare hands, as they contain small needles that can irritate the mucous membranes.

3. Sansevieria

Sansevieria is distinguished by long, dense leaves of a rich green color with a yellowish edge. For this plant, the location does not matter: it can be placed near a window or in the back of the bedroom, it is unpretentious to the level of humidity and tolerates rare watering. 

You can regulate the growth of the plant and the number of leaves by the size of the pot. If it is not replanted often (once every 3-4 years is enough), it will slow down its growth rate.

4. Calathea

There are a huge number of different types of calathea, but the most popular ones for bedroom decoration are those with wide, rounded leaves on long stems. Due to its size, it is most often placed on the floor or on low stands – it creates an advantageous green accent.

Caring for calathea is easy; it needs watering once a week and replanting once every couple of years. If there is something wrong with a plant, it can be easily determined by its appearance. The pale leaves will tell you that it is worth moving the plant closer to the window. If the stems become soft and drooping towards the ground, try reducing the frequency of watering. When the edges of the leaves turn yellow, check the soil to see if it is dry.

5. Cactus

Cacti will create an unusual contrast in the bedroom interior: a prickly plant against the background of a soft blanket and pillows. You can simply put a couple of cacti on your bedside table. Or get a tall and long variety of cactus.

If you are worried that you might prick yourself in your sleep, choose a variety without thorns: hatiora, or epiphyllum. 

6. Ficus

Ficus is suitable for those who love large plants in the interior (by the way, this is now a trend). Pay attention to the ficus lyreformes. It grows quickly, and within a few years, you can see lush foliage resembling the crown of a tree.  

The only difficulty is that you will have to find enough space in the bedroom for a large outdoor pot, preferably close to a window because this plant loves sunlight.
