Read on for some great finds, all available here at Unbeleafable!

Monstera Deliciosa

Monstera Deliciosa

The unbeatable star of any plant showcase, this iconic swiss cheese plant has a distinct split-leaf appearance that plant enthusiasts, interior designers, and aesthetic chasers alike will be quick to recognize and adore. With leaves that stretch up to 18 inches wide and the ability to grow up to 15 feet, you’ll never find a more eye-catching staple.

The Monstera Deliciosa starts at 7 to 10 inches tall, with a minimum of 4 leaves. It only needs watering once a week, and bright indirect sunlight. Ornamental and sprawling, it’s perfect for setting up in your living room, where it can catch the attention of all your guests.

Cobra Fern

The glossy, deep green Cobra Fern has a distinct curled outer leaf that mimics the silhouette of its namesake. Native to tropical and subtropical rain forests, it only needs watering once or twice a week to keep it healthy, alongside some bright indirect light.

An ideal tabletop plant for your counters (or even a centerpiece for your dining table), this lush plant starts at 7 to 10 inches tall with a minimum of 4 leaves, and perfectly fits in the palm of your hand—just keep it away from your pets, or they might be the ones to strike!

Licuala Grandis

Licuala Grandis

Grand it certainly is! Standing at 2 to 3 feet but with the ability to grow up to 30, the Licuala Grandis is commonly known as the Ruffled Fan Palm. A unique plant with pleated, circular, fan-shaped leaves, this elegant palm likes bright indirect light, though it can handle direct sunlight once it’s seen some years, too.

Ideal for hallways and living rooms, this palm will stand tall and proud before your guests, and will surely be a conversation starter among them. As for maintenance, just make sure you’re not overwatering it, and you should be good!

Wandering Jew

What about a nice hanging plant for your window or balcony? The Tradescantia Zebrina, otherwise known as the Wandering Jew plant, has a unique variegation that you will simply love. With green and purple leaves that have touches of silver, it’s a multicolored marvel that will surely add beauty to any minimalist space in your apartment.

Don’t be intimidated by its stunning looks, however—this plant will thrive just fine even under the care of a beginner plant parent. As long as it gets enough water and sunlight, it’ll trail fairly quickly.


At first glance, you might think of the Cryptanthus as a flower because of its color. But while we do have flowering plants within our store, don’t be fooled—those are leaves you’re seeing!

Another plant that can serve as a tabletop centerpiece, the Cryptanthus has lovely pink foliage that makes it ideal not just for your apartment, but as a gift for someone special in your life, too!

This Women’s Month, why not surprise mom or Ate with a plant or two? Even if she’s not familiar with plant maintenance, this one’s so easy to care for that even a beginner can do it.

Birds of Paradise

The Birds of Paradise, known in its native South Africa as the Crane Flower, is another imposing plant that stands at a height of 3 to 5 feet when fully grown. Its stiff, curved, oblong leaves and red rib have given it some popularity over the years, and you’ll find they’re quite perfect for achieving that modern home aesthetic.

Best grown in bright, indirect sunlight and watered once or twice a week, this plant is pretty straightforward and comes in four sizes, each starting at a height of 1 to 2 feet and with a varying minimum of leaves.

Lucky Bamboo

Lucky Bamboo

Whether you believe in Feng Shui or not, it couldn’t hurt to add some lucky plants to your apartment collection, could it? The Dracaena Sanderiana, commonly known as the Lucky Bamboo or Fortune Plant, is a houseplant that can easily grow in any condition, even in water. In the traditional art of Feng Shui, it is considered a symbol of luck and happiness, which is why it’s a popular corporate and personal gift.

It has long stems and leaves that shoot upwards, but one unique characteristic of this plant is its ability to be shaped like a swirl, braid, and many other designs. It’s perfect for your dresser or side table!


Finally, why not put up some double-purpose plants that serve not just as attractive pieces of living decor but have some use, too? Set up an herb garden in the kitchen, for example. We grow some common herbs you can use to spice up food like parsley, rosemary, and thyme, as well as some herbs whose leaves you can boil to make Green Tea or Tarragon Tea.

Remember to always check the product page of the plant you’re planning to keep, to make sure you’re caring for it properly. In this way, not only are you ensuring that it’ll grow healthy, but you’re also conserving water and learning more about plant care!
