Monstera Deliciosa became the Queen of Instagram thanks to its iconic glossy leaves.
Monstera likes temperatures between 68 and 86 °F, and prefers high humidity and indirect light. Unfortunately, this beautiful plant is toxic to dogs and cats.
The perfect choice to add a lush tropical touch to your home. Easy to care for, it can brighten and liven up every indoor space.
Like many tropical indoor plants, Calathea Orbifolia prefers a spot with low to medium light and high humidity. With time, its leaves can reach about 15-35” wide.
Calathea has been classified as non-toxic to dogs and cats.

Also known as Snake Plant, Sansevieria Trifasciata is native to tropical western Africa. Famous for its erect and sharp leaves, this slow-growing plant is a diehard one: versatile and forgiving, it can tolerate both high and low light, and it needs water every 2-6 weeks.
The snake plant is one of the top plants for cleaning the air from benzene, formaldehyde and other toxins.

Widely called String of Pearls, this plant is an unusual succulent from South Africa known for its spherical leaves.
This plant has easy care requirements: it needs bright indirect light, and infrequent watering (every 3 weeks).
The String of Pearls is a strenuous grower: it will quickly grow out of the vase, and then cascade down to the side.
