Curate A Slice Of Paradise In Your Very Own Home With These 10 Tropical Plants That Can Thrive No Matter Where You Live

It’s drought-tolerant, actually thriving on neglect, and prefers low-light conditions. So, all you have to do is water it sparingly and enjoy its undemanding company.


Native to the tropical Americas, bromeliads can add a vivid pop of color to your indoor space. Their bright, rosette-forming leaves and striking flower spikes can seriously energize any room.

Bromeliads are easy to care for, too, requiring only medium to bright light and minimal water. They also enjoy humidity but are forgiving if you occasionally forget to mist them.

Snake Plant (Sansevieria)

Originating from the tropical West African region, snake plants are as hardy as they are striking.

Known for their upright, variegated leaves, they can add a modern touch to any interior.

Thriving in low light and requiring infrequent watering, snake plants are nearly indestructible and perfect for beginners or those with a busy lifestyle.

Alocasia (Elephant Ear)

With roots in the tropical rainforests of Asia and Eastern Australia, Alocasia plants are both dramatic and beautiful. Their large, arrow-shaped leaves will make a bold statement in any indoor garden.

Alocasia just prefers bright, indirect light and a humid environment, making them a bit more high-maintenance. But they’re still well worth the effort for their stunning appearance.
