Trees are great items to have in your lawn. They clean the air, they provide shade and privacy, they are fantastic for climbing and they are beautiful to look at as well. While many trees are just too big to consider growing indoors, there are many trees which make wonderful accents to the inside of your dwelling.
If you are a lover of the Victorian Era you may have seen images or seen movies of the time with parlour palms sprucing up the, well, parlour. The adapt well to low light and humidity and they’re on the list of NASA’s 50 Plants That Clean the Air. And face it, they’re breezy and elaborate and who would not want one in their living room in a large ceramic pot?
If you want a touch of Christmas into your home year round, what about a Norfolk Pine? They are basically baby Christmas trees that love bright light and moist soil.
If you want big bold statements you will need a Fiddle Leaf Fig Tree in your living area. These trees have large sculptured leaves that give the air of the tropics without being weepy or wispy. These trees love light but don’t like drafts so keep them away from windows and doors and you’re ready to go.
The Ficus is possibly the most popular indoor tree there is, heck, they even make a bogus version that you just dust once in a while and forget about. The real version is in fact a weeping fig tree if you want to get technical, and they come in various textures and heights so they are perfect for any room, any where.
Really like the tropics but live where there appears to be perpetual winter? Then what about adding a Majesty Palm to your home? Throw on the heat, watch the palm tree and pretend you are on the beach, even if it is January and there is a blizzard waging outside.
If you like more of a desert type tree then the Yucca is for you. They have thick woody stems and pointy leaves that come in many different blue to blue green colors and have yellow, cream or white tones to them too. For more information check out Wildlife Removal.
