Small plants

If you’re looking for smaller or medium-sized houseplants, we recommend the small ficus species, such as the ficus triangularis. This bush has beautiful heart-shaped leaves that are deep green in the center with light green spots and a lighter edge.

The required care is basic and it only needs indirect light, moderate watering (every five days or so), and a well-drained substrate to avoid flooding. Its combination of colors, shape, and size makes it one of the most desired species. Equally, it looks great in both small and large homes.
