Whether you’re looking to make low ceilings appear higher, or you want floor-to-ceiling greenery to bring nature indoors, a tall tree is a great addition to your indoor space! Check out 10 of our favorite tall indoor plants.  

Dragon Tree

Dragon Trees are a great choice for early plant parents because they are extremely resilient. They can be planted at any time of year, do well in a range of light exposure and temperatures, and can withstand a few forgotten waterings. Dragon Trees can grow 20 feet tall in the wild, but with pruning, you can expect your Dragon Tree to grow to roughly 6 feet tall indoors.

Fishtail Palm Tree

The Fishtail Palm Tree is sure to bring an element of the beach into your home. These trees present a unique twist on the classic palm tree that reminds us of the tropics but with jagged-edged leaves. Fishtail Palms can grow up to 20 feet tall over the course of their life, so make sure you are keeping up with repotting your plant as it continually grows. Keep this tree in warm, humid spaces with plenty of indirect sunlight to ensure its health. 

European Olive Tree

If you’re looking to add a romantic touch to your indoor garden, a European Olive Tree is a great choice. The standard variety can grow up to 10 feet tall, but if you are looking for one a bit more contained, you can opt for a Dwarf Olive Tree which typically maxes out around 6 feet in height. They enjoy optimal light, so a spot next to a south-facing window is a prime location. 

Fiddle Leaf Fig

If you want a tree that is sure to draw attention, the Fiddle Leaf Fig is a great choice. Its wide, veiny leaves have a rich green color, paired with the fact that they can grow 10 feet tall, the Fiddle Leaf Fig is a showstopper. These trees prefer high humidity and bright, indirect light, so a misting bottle and grow light are good accessories to make sure your plant is able to maintain its beautiful display. 

Tree Fern

The Tree Fern is the perfect choice for people who love the timeless look of a fern but want a plant with a bit more height. This tree can grow up to 25 feet tall in the wild –– but don’t worry, with pruning and selective potting, you can tame this tree. Tree Ferns will need weekly watering and high humidity due to their tropical nature, so make sure to keep them in moist, warm environments to maintain the beauty of those classic leaves green. 

New Zealand Laurel

The New Zealand Laurel is truly a one-of-a-kind tree to decorate your home. This plant loves indirect sunlight and does best when the soil is kept moist without overwatering. New Zealand Laurels are growing in popularity in the US, but are long beloved indoor trees in Australia, explaining their desire for warmth and humidity. 

Corn Plant

Corn Plants, also called “False Palms” for their resemblance to palm trees, have been popular indoor trees for centuries! Their thick, cane-like trunks are juxtaposed by thin, long leaves that resemble the stocks of corn. Corn plants typically grow between 4 and 6 feet tall indoors and tend to grow narrowly upwards. These trees require a bit of attention to learn what conditions they prefer (usually filtered light, moderate humidity, and loose soil), but once you find these requirements, your corn plant will grow happily for years to come. 

Money Tree

This tree’s enticing name is not the only thing that makes it stand out! Money Trees are visually breathtaking because of their deeply colored leaves and commonly braided trunks. In order to keep your Money Tree looking fresh, make sure you are providing plenty of humidity, deep yet infrequent waterings, and direct light exposure. 

African Milk Tree

Adding a thin succulent tree to your indoor space is sure to impress guests as a unique feature, all while being incomparably low-maintenance. Just like any succulent, the African Milk Tree needs plenty of sunlight and minimal water to remain healthy. This tree can grow up to 8 feet tall and will live for years upon years to come.  

Schefflera “Umbrella” Tree

Schefflera Trees add a delicate design to any indoor space due to their flower-like assembly of leaves. This type of tree is relatively simple to care for, needing medium light and deep waterings when the soil turns dry. Be careful with Umbrella Trees around pets and children as they are poisonous if ingested, so make sure to remove any yellow or wilting leaves before they shed themselves.

Light is perfect, timer is not

The light is so beautiful! Extremely sleek and feels very solid, like a quality fixture should. I ordered the large white version, and the wood arm so I could attach that to the wall rather than fuss with the hardware and hook it to the ceiling. (I'll avoid drywall anchors at all costs, but it's great they were included). My plants are happy, and I'm thrilled with how it looks in my home! Only issue I've had is with the outlet timer - it just doesn't work. The instructions aren't complicated, of course there's always a potential for user error but there's only so many switches that can be flipped and I've tried all directions with no success. Admittedly its rather frustrating, since I'll have to figure something else out if I'm not home to turn the light off and on..

So far so good.

I’m writing this review for the 10% off. I’ve just received these lights, but after a week of use they seem to be working well. They are certainly more attractive than the average grow light and give a very nice ambiance. I’m not quite sure they are worth the cost, but I would probably still recommend these to someone who wants a visually pleasing grow light.
