Best Indoor house plant post by Spoken Garden

In our “Best Indoor Plants and Their Life-changing Benefits,” we’ll suggest 3 of our favorite indoor plants and how best to care for each one.

This episode is meant for gardeners who are looking for indoor plant suggestions and basic care for each.

Check out our three different plants below!


Benefits of Indoor Plants

There are so many wonderful reasons to keep indoor plants in your home.

Luckily, it doesn’t matter what size your home is because most indoor plants thrive in lower light and can be grown anywhere.

These indoor plants offer multiple health benefits as well which is probably one of the BEST reasons to consider having a few of your own.

Here are just a few of the many health benefits you could experience:

  • Improved air quality and air purification
  • Stress reduction
  • Improved mood
  • Better sleep
  • Reduce fatigue
  • Increased empathy


The benefits far outweigh the reasons not to keep a few indoor plants hanging around your living or work areas.

One note of caution: Always be aware of certain plants and their possible toxicity to children or pets. Make sure to keep plants hanging high or away from kids or pets if needed.



Types of Indoor House Plants

Best indoor plants- Heart Leaf Philodendron from Amazon

The Heart Leaf Philodendron is a favorite in our house for its ability to thrive anywhere in the house!

Luckily for you, there are a wide array of options available for indoor plants

We tend to prefer plants that are low maintenance and thrive in lower light conditions.

Three examples we’ll present in this podcast are:

  • Spider Plant
  • Heart-Leaf Philodendron
  • Mother-in-Law’s Tongue, or Snake Plant


(Listen to this podcast above for more on each of these plants as well as basic plant care tips).

    • One of the most popular and easiest to care for indoor plants.
    • It resembles compact wide-leaved grass.
