Spruce up your decor with houseplants


Houseplants are a quick and easy way to spruce up your decor. When it comes to the kitchen, growing plants indoors has some practical applications. The right plants purify inside air, add splashes of color, and provide fresh produce.


These 9 houseplants are the ideal place to start in your kitchen.



African Violets - Saintpaulia, is the perfect houseplant substitute for those who enjoy cut flowers in the kitchen! Happy African Violets flower nearly year-round and come in a multitude of artistic colors. These compact houseplants want bright, indirect light and frequent watering, perfect for a window ceil.



Herbs - Growing herbs in the kitchen may seem like an obvious choice, but cooking with homegrown herbs is the best. They need a bright kitchen with lots of windows or bright lights for lush, full herbs to thrive. Easy herb varieties to grow indoors include cilantro, chives, mint, oregano, parsley, and thyme.  10 Ways to Use Rosemary Indoors.




Philodendron is another houseplant that looks great in hanging baskets. Similar to pothos, they are considered relatively drought-tolerant and can grow in virtually any room. A foliage plant that comes in a wide variety of shapes and colors. Its most notable trait is the ability to purify indoor air.



Pothos - Epipremnum aureum, are indeed some of the easiest houseplants to care for. They adapt well to any condition and are considered drought-tolerant. Perfect for smaller kitchens with limited counter space, this plant is ideal as a hanging plant.



Rubber Tree - Ficus elastica, is a significant statement plant in kitchens. A close relative of the Fiddle Leaf Fig, only easier to grow. Adaptable to any growing room with a window in it.

Spider Plant - Chlorophytum, are among the easiest houseplants to care for. They make excellent hanging plants, and when happy flower and send offshoots prolifically. They prefer and bright room without exposure to direct sunlight.




Succulents, when you have a sunny windowsill in your kitchen, are a fabulous option. The term 'succulent' describes plants that store water in various parts of their leaves or stems. This makes them super-efficient water users with low maintenance needs. Watters offers literally hundreds of different succulents that come in stunning shapes, colors, and sizes. Aloe Vera, Cactus, Crassula, Echeveria, Haworthia, Kalanchoe, and Sedums are the most popular.




ZZ Plant - Zamioculcas zamiifolia, is also known as the Zanzibar Gem. As hardy as any cactus that thrives in low, to very bright conditions, ZZ plants make the list of Houseplants You Can't Kill every year. These slow-growing plants are started by rhizomes and hardly need to be watered! Start here if you travel a lot, visit the grandkids often, or simply the forgetful gardener when watering your plants.


Choose Plants Based on Your Kitchen's Conditions

When choosing houseplants to accent the room, your kitchen's light and humidity are vital. Make sure that you select plants that thrive in your unique space!


Garden Alert! Help, I'm being eaten aliveUnwelcome bugs cause a lot of issues, with curling leaves being one of them. Holes in the leaves, speckling, yellowing, or pale leaves are other signs of pest problems. This week gardeners had problems with fungus gnats here at Watters Garden Center. Tiny black gnats buzz around the house, but the larvae live in the soil of your houseplants and eat the plant from the roots up. Watters Systemic Granules obliterate this pest in one dose.



Contemplating bringing your outside plants in? Make sure to treat each plant with the same Systemic Granules one week before moving your plants to the inside for winter.

Until next week, I'll be helping locals choose the best kitchen plants here at Watters Garden Center.
