Head over to your nearest nursery and ask for this medicinal wonder. Aloe needs a wide container and can be kept in a window sill in the kitchen for everyday use. The juice from aloe relieves pain from scrapes, cuts and burns all common injuries in the kitchen. Water your aloe well, but ensure that it dries at least thumb length deep before watering it again to avoid rot.
The English Ivy makes the best indoor plant out of all varieties. Ivy’s prefer not to be over watered rather more dry soil than wet. They also prefer a lot of light, so place them close to a window. It is a good idea to rinse the leaves to remove dust and other pests. They don’t need fertiliser in winter, only once a month in summer
The lucky plant or “money tree” ages beautifully indoors, are very easy to grow and will eventually have lovely thick branches with fleshy glossy leaves. The fast-growing leaves and good placement of these plants will hopefully reflect this growing energy in your bank balance per Feng Shui followers.
Perfect for winter as they need a cool spot, with indirect light and high humidity. If the air in your house is dry due to heating lightly mist about twice a week or move your fern close to a shower to add a bit more humidity. The soil needs to remain damp for your plant to flourish.
An easy plant to grow inside if you have the space, these plants grow 6 to 7 feet tall and need a large container. They are one of the best air purifier plants and they are non-toxic to pets. The palm needs filtered light with moist well-drained soil and fertilising from late winter onwards. They prefer 16°C to 24°C and the worst you can do is to over water your palm.
