Bring in the outdoor greenery to your kitchen with the house plants, don’t be afraid to give it a shot. Household plants do not only serve as excellent home decor additions, but plants can also help purify the air in your space. 

If you’re just starting to grow plants indoors, then you might as well take a look at our list. 


Aloe Vera 

Also known as the plant of immortality because it’s considered as one of the plants that have a long life. It’s distinct beauty, and long lifespan is two great characteristics of a houseplant. 

We suggest that you place a pot near your stove. It will come handy if you burn yourself because the plant has a lot of vitamins and minerals, which are great for your skin. All you have to do is to cut a leaf near its stalk, remove the spines on the edges then split the leaf lengthwise. Rub the inner gel of the leaf on your burn to cool the burnt area. 


African Spear

Still has elongated leaves, the African spear can also live long indoors because it has a high tolerance to low light spaces. The plant originated from the dry Angolan regions, which mean that overwatering the plant can kill it.

Place it under your kitchen cabinet or on top of your fridge. Regardless of the location, just make sure that you water the plant once a week. 


Cast Iron Plant

Are you looking to add a soft texture in your kitchen, perhaps some whites and flowers? Then we recommend adding a cast iron plant in a corner to bring in some softness in your space. 

This is an excellent addition in your kitchen decor because it’s another easy to maintain the plant. It can live in extremely low light spaces and fluctuating temperatures. You don’t have to worry about watering it because it only needs frequent watering!


Goldfish Plant

This is another excellent option if you are looking to add colors in the corners of your kitchen. The goldfish plant blooms orange and green all year, and it doesn’t need a lot of TLC, too. 

What we love about this plant is it blooms more mid-winter, which can make a difference in your space. Also, make sure to place the plant in a partially lit area. Check the soil before you water the goldfish plant; the soil has to be dry before you water it again. 


White Jasmine

The white or pink jasmine is another favorite indoor plant, especially in the kitchen. We love this plant because it also loves winter months. 

It’s not as easy to take care of compared to the previous plants on the list, but all you need to do is keep the soil moist. It loves sunlight so place it in an area that’s partially lit. 

We love this plant in the kitchen because of its smell. It has a sweet scent that can counter the smell of food, but it’s not overpowering. 


Spider Plant

If you want to purify the air in your kitchen or any space in your home, then a spider plant is your best option. The spider plant is also natural to take care of and can thrive in different indoor conditions. It doesn’t require a lot of TLC. Place the plant on your countertops or near the window, prune it, and water it occasionally, and that’s it!


Regardless of which plant you choose, just make sure that you spend a few minutes a week to water or just check on the plants. Though these are low maintenance plants, a little TLC won’t hurt, right?
