Small Leaves with Spectacular Style
Big-leaf houseplants seem to get all the attention these days. But don’t overlook smaller plants that are just as eye-catching, if not more. Some are compact, better behaved, and… well, downright easy to grow.
Check out this variegated group that are splashed, streaked and marbled, making each leaf practically a work of art.
Newer Pothos cultivars offer leaves streaked with gold, marbled with white, and neon green, to name a few. Give this easy-growing houseplant plenty of bright, indirect light to maintain the variegation.
Have you seen Philodendron Brasil? Just as easy to grow, this tropical has spectacular lime green streaks down each leaf. This vine is eager to climb. But you can hang it up or set its pot on a shelf and allow those colorful vines to trail. Pinch it back to help Brasil to branch out for a fuller plant.
Once you see the heart-shaped patterns of Triangleleaf Fig, you’ll want to add this handsome shrub to your indoor plant collection. It adds dazzling style to any room.
