Is different rooms need differnt plants?

Plant parents ofen makes this mistakes: placing the wrong plant in the wrong room. Yes, there is a strategy to it. Just because one golden pothos in your bathroom is thriving the same plant variety will thrive in your living room window, kitchen, or playroom. One factor we should always consider in humidity. Even if everything is under one roof, each room has a different temperature, light, and air level. Plants, too, require different care and attention. Some plants need more water, less sun, or more attention. Strategically placing a low-maintenance plant on an often-overlooked space or passageway in the house is also a brilliant idea.

Take these suggestions to carefully choose a plant for every room in your house. Your home will become a more peaceful sanctuary, and in this time of uncertainty, an inspiring place to be.

Living Room

The living room is not only a space for you and your family, but it is also where you entertain your guests (aka show off your impeccable taste in interiors). Display the indoor plants you are proudest of, but also choose the ones that can withstand the level of sun exposure in your living room.

Elegant plants like a leafy rubber tree or a towering birds of paradise will anchor the overall look of your living room. Or you can go with smaller indoor plants that are fun and reflect a more relaxed vibe. Think of philodendrons or begonias. If your living room comes with bright natural light, cacti or succulents are the best plants for this space.

Dining Room

Like the living room, the dining room is another space for family and friends to gather. The plants for the living room are also a good match here. You can also take conversation pieces like some interestingly shaped begonias and display them artfully in key areas. As a centerpiece on your dining table, the lucky bamboo plant is another interesting choice. It grows on pebbles and water. It is elegant but can also grow in almost any lighting situation. It is not messy and quite inexpensive.


It makes absolute sense to have herbs and potted vegetables in your kitchen. Think of spring onions, parsley, basil, and mint just sitting right at the windowsill. Your pasta dishes will have the freshest herbs!

But if you prefer a more decorative plant situation, remember that the kitchen is the second most humid room in the house. The bathroom is the most humid, of course. Trailing pothos, ferns, and air plants will enjoy the high humidity. Hang them in cute planters or place them on top of the shelves. Your kitchen will have instant charm.


The inner sanctum. The room where you recharge and get a good night’s rest. Modern technology has released all kinds of devices that purify air quality, lift our moods, and the like. But plants are just the most natural aide for relaxation. Plants can boost your mood, decrease stress levels, and remove toxins in the room.

Choose plants that improve air quality like the weeping fig and snake plant. It requires low, indirect light. A pot of french lavender is best suited for the indoors. Have one by your sunny window and let the calming scent fill the room.


Think of your bathroom as the tropical room in your house. The temperature is warm and humid. To give you more joy in plant care, don’t think that your bathroom must have a plant. But instead, understand that some plants thrive better in the bathroom environment. Ferns grow in low light, so do pothos. You can add rare varieties to make this room sparkle.

Home Office

With more of us working from home, it’s safe to assume we’ve created a dedicated working space. It doesn’t physically have to be the dreary battleground we picture in our minds. Add a plant that will boost your creativity and provide endless inspiration. The mums flower (Chrysanthemum) are not only beautiful but are also known to absorb chemicals like those emitted from cigarette smoke, printers, and photocopiers.
