At IKEA we can find furniture, accessories, textiles … but also many natural plants at a good price. We show you some of our favorite plants so that you can fill your home with color and life. Are you ready?
1. AN ARECA TO PURIFY THE AIR
This is one of the most seen plants in the interior of any house. This is due not only to its splendor but also to its ability to purify the air. Especially in winter, due to the heating, the environment at home becomes drier so this plant will help us to naturally regulate the temperature. And it is available in IKEA stores for 20 euros.
2. SUCCULENTS FULL OF GOOD ENERGY
If you are looking for good vibes, you have to incorporate some succulents at home. According to ‘Feng Shui’, these plants help balance energy, improve mood and concentration. At IKEA, you can get 3 mini-units like these for 3 euros. And, although they are very easy to care for, another very decorative option is artificial plants from IKEA. They offer very realistic finishes and do not require any care.
3. ZAMIOCULCA FOR BEGINNERS
Caring for a plant seems a priori very simple, but depending on the type of plant, it may require more or less care. If you are still starting in the world of plants and flowers, you better start with a simple and undemanding species. The Zamioculca is perfect as it is very resistant. At IKEA it is available, with a height of 17 cm, for € 10.
4. SAY GOODBYE TO MOSQUITOES!
Insects like cockroaches or mosquitoes are usually a big problem in the summer months. A good way to end both is with natural plants. In the case of mosquitoes, the best-known plant to keep these insects away from home is lavender. In addition to driving away mosquitoes, they provide color and a good aroma to the outside. At IKEA, each lavender is available for € 2.50.
5. IF YOU LIKE FLOWERING PLANTS …
You have to get one of these! The Espatifilo is a very beautiful and cheerful plant thanks to its large green leaves and white flowers. It is one of the indoor plants that IKEA sells that, like Areca, purifies the air inside the house. You can find it at IKEA for just € 3.
6. OR IF YOU PREFER MORE LEAVES
Better get a Pilea peperomioides. A plant with large rounded green leaves that will make any corner of the house shine. For these plants to be the absolute protagonists of the house, you can create a small corner with the help of some hanging pots. If you liked the idea, at IKEA they are available for € 7.
7. SANSEVIERIA, A PLANT WITH LITTLE IRRIGATION
It is another of the most resistant indoor plants. This plant is also known as ‘Tiger’s Tongue’ is very easy to maintain. It will simply need a lot of light (without being direct light) and a specific watering. At IKEA, the 14cm tall Sansevieria is € 8.
8. FRUIT TREES AT HOME
Although at first glance it looks like a conventional orange tree, it is not. This small fruit tree produces small edible orange-colored fruits with a sour taste that has nothing to do with mandarins or oranges, even if they look alike. Calamondín is used above all in recipes for Asian food, so if you are a fan of this type of gastronomy, you cannot miss it at home. At IKEA, we can get this variety for 15 euros.
9. HANGING PLANTS FOR YOUR SHELVES
A good way to add a natural touch to open shelves in the house is with plants. They provide light, warmth, a lot of freshness and also serve as decorative elements. The plants that we like the most for the shelf area are ivy. If you get tired, you can also put them outside. And you can get them for € 3 at IKEA!
10. CARNIVOROUS PLANTS
The carnivorous plants are fashionable. These plants are a perfect option especially if around your house there are usually many pests or insects. This species is one of the most common and easy to find, and it is also available at IKEA for € 8.
11. AN AFFORDABLE AND DURABLE PLANT
This plant with such delicate leaves is one of the toughest indoors. It does not need too much light and for irrigation, it is enough that the plant is always wet. The only downside to this plant is that it grows very slowly. Although yes, for € 1.50 it is worth getting a plant like this so beautiful, and it is at IKEA!
12. STERLICIA, A PECULIAR PLANT
La Esterlicia or also known as ‘Bird of Paradise’ is one of the most popular and spectacular plants in the Canary Islands. Although we only see this plant full of green leaves, when flowering begins –which occurs several times a year–, some wonderful flowers appear that simulate the head of a bird in orange and blue colors. At IKEA it’s available for € 45.
13. WELCOME TO THE JUNGLE!
If you are looking to increase the tropical character of any room in the house, you cannot miss plants like Monstera. Its large leaves take us directly to the jungle. Also known as ‘Adam’s Rib’, this unique plant is perfect for kitchens or bathrooms as it does not require much light. Although it does indeed demand a lot of water. At Ikea, it’s available for € 13.
14. A PLANT WITH BENEFITS FOR THE SKIN
Aloe Vera is a very cute plant that has also become one of the favorites to add at home. Inside its leaves, it houses many properties that are beneficial for the skin. Even in addition to being used on the skin, it is also extracted to make recipes. At IKEA, it is very well priced, just € 4.
15. COLOR ON THE TERRACE WITH CHRYSANTHEMUMS
They have one of the most beautiful flowers, and they also do very well throughout the summer and fall. Especially during the fall is when the chrysanthemums begin to bloom. Take advantage of this beautiful and colorful plant to brighten up the terrace as they adapt very well to the outdoors. At IKEA, they are available for 8 euros.
