The oval-shaped, striped leaves can grow 12-inches wide, adding dimension to your classic indoor garden. Originating in Bolivia, these plants require high humidity and regular watering to thrive, but when they are given this special attention, you will not be disappointed by the outcome.

Monstera Deliciosa from La Résidence

Another large houseplant, the Monstera Deliciosa is commonly known for having splits in its heart-shaped leaves. These unique leaves have a glossy surface and can grow up to 3 feet long! Growing roughly 3 feet in height as well, this plant is a beautiful addition to any room that could use greenery to occupy dead space.  

Banana Tree Plant

Banana Tree Plant from House Beautiful 

If you want to add a tropical element to your interior design, check out the Banana Tree Plant. While there are hundreds of species of Banana Tree Plants, each variety displays large, sage-green leaves as their unforgettable foliage. The beautiful leaves are quite thin and therefore fragile, so should be treated with care, especially in transport. Settle your Banana Tree Plant in a warm area and keep the soil moist to maintain its beauty. 

Kentia Palm

Kentia Palm from La Résidence

The Kentia Palm is a twist on the typical big leaf plant because of its palm-style foliage. Although each individual leaf isn’t particularly large, their arrangement allows the tree to display extravagant foliage and significant leaf cover. These trees are extremely resilient and grow no more than 12 feet when potted, making them a great low-maintenance indoor plant. The tropical accent this Palm adds to the home is unmissable! 

Philodendron

Philodendron plants are the perfect choice if you are looking for something portable and versatile. This plant easily adapts to many environments and even can be moved outdoors during the summer months without much additional care. They present vining foliage and sprout large, delicate leaves that should be regularly wiped with a damp cloth. You can also trim back the vines to contain your Philodendron to grow in a small space!

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.

Beautiful + Great Instructions

It's a beautiful light and the entire kit is well thought-out – even the hardware is elegant! I also really appreciated the detailed booklet that covered not only install, but also a surprising amount of info on growing houseplants. I live in Alaska and have long used grow lights to keep my plants going through the winter. I recently purchased a bird of paradise and needed to up my growlight game. I could have rigged something up myself that looked nice for less money, but I was really curious about this company and wanted to check out their product, and I have no regrets. I haven't fully put the growlight to the test yet (we still have many hours of sun up here), but I've hung the light using Rousseau Plant Care's Curved Wood Wall Mount and I think together they increase the visual interest of my plant corner. Based on other reviews, I have no doubt that it will keep my bird of paradise happy through our dark season.
