While the first day of spring won’t be here for another week, that doesn’t mean we can’t already get into the season. Aldi is holding a plant sale to celebrate spring’s arrival, featuring an assortment of five-inch foliage and 10-inch hanging baskets that would transform your cold, dreary apartment into a tropical paradise—starting at just $4.99 each. Here’s what’s in store:

Schefflera Arboricola might also be called the dwarf umbrella tree, but don’t let the word “dwarf” deceive you. It can grow up to 10 feet, able to provide a bit of canopy to any room. No wonder it’s so popular!

These shrubs can be quite difficult. They don’t like movement, so they’ll drop a few leaves after the ride home. Their sap is toxic, so they won’t be a good companion to pets or children. They also need lots of sunlight, humidity, not to mention, you’ll need to wipe their leaves of dust every so often. But if you don’t mind a finicky plant such as a croton, it’ll reward you with its colorful and vibrant foliage.

Dieffenbachia is a great addition to any drab office, as its shades of yellow green and white can brighten dim spaces and provide contrast to dark-colored furniture. But much like the croton plant, be wary, this tropical shrub is toxic.

No green thumb, no problem. Pothos is said to be one of the easiest indoor plants to grow, able to withstand long periods without water, dark rooms, and negligent owners. It’s so impervious to death that it’s even called Devil’s Ivy. Oooh. 

Neanthe Bella Palm

Also known as the Parlor Palm, it gets its name from Victorian times when homeowners would proudly display the plant in their parlors to impress guests. It’s not hard to see why it was beloved then (and now); it’s showy, thrives indoors, and is inexpensive (only $4.99 at Aldi).

All plants mentioned above are all priced at $4.99. If you’re looking to get hanging plants, there’s also an assortment of flowers and shrubs, too (see store for pricing). Better hurry, though, the promo is part of Aldi’s weekly deals, so expect their stocks to be gone soon.
