Don’t overlook your kitchen when deciding where to place your new plant. Because kitchens are usually more humid than other areas of your home, your plant will thrive in the extra moisture.
Not only will your plant love the humid environment, but you’ll also love the gezellig feeling lush green plants add to a traditionally not-so-green space. Follow these tips + tricks to transform your space with our best plants for the kitchen!
TIP 1: Think vertically
In most kitchens, counter space is at a premium. Utilize plant hangers or the tops of your cupboards to keep your countertop free. Trailing plants like the Happier Trails Collection, Philodendron Brasil, and Spider Plant love to be hung or positioned on a shelf so new growth can cascade and vine freely.
TIP 2: Bigger isn’t always better
Most of us don’t have space for a Bird of Paradise or Monstera plant in our kitchen, but adding clusters of smaller plants can have just as big an impact. Group smaller plants together on a window sill. The Tradescantia Zebrina, Hedgehog Aloe, and Peperomia Watermelon would love the bright indirect light they’ll get sitting on a sill.
TIP 3: Choose humidity-loving plants
Like your bathroom, your kitchen is often a bit more humid than most other rooms of your home. Choose plants that will thrive in the extra humidity, such as the Bird’s Nest Fern and Kimberly Queen Fern.
