It seems like there’s no slowing down for our love of plants and leafy green interior. In fact, experts released a list of trending and must-have houseplants in 2022. Trust us, you’ll be adding these air-purifying pets to your collection.

Banana Plant (Strelitzia Nicolai)

The Banana plant is slowly becoming popular this 2021, but it will be everyone’s favorite plant in 2022. Known for its large green leaves, the Banana plant will add a touch of the tropics to your home. It’s perfect as an outdoor plant since it grows quite tall, but if you’re planning to make it as indoor decor, we suggest choosing a dwarf variety unless you have high ceilings.

Place them in a bright spot since Banana plants prefer bright to harsh light. Water them once a week during spring and summer. During the cooler seasons, it’s best to water them once every two weeks.

Ferns

Ferns may be one of the toughest plants to care for because they need a humid environment to thrive, specifically the Boston Fern, but it’s one of the must-have houseplants in 2022. We’re confused but not surprised because some varieties are low-maintenance. They’re ideal for busy plant owners or beginners.

Depending on the variety of ferns you have, some prefer shady areas, while others prefer bright light. Water them once a week during spring and summer. During the cooler seasons, it’s best to water them once every two weeks.

Ficus Umbellata

We call the Ficus Umbellata the nicer version of the finicky Fiddle Leaf Fig. It’s beautiful as the Fiddle Leaf Fig, but it’s less dramatic! Place the Ficus Umbellata in an area with bright, indirect light and water them when the top 2 inches of soil are dry.

Grape Ivy (Cissus ‘Ellen Danica’)

Grape Ivy is one of the most beautiful and must-have houseplants in 2022 because of its delicately lace-like leaves. It looks sophisticated if you ask us. Grape Ivy prefers filtered to bright light and water them once a week during the warmer months.
