New Zealand Laurel

Although not super common in the U.S., New Zealand laurels, or Karaka trees, can be grown indoors as well outside and serve as geometric accent pieces to any room they’re in.

Common Fig

A little less high maintenance than their fiddle leaf cousins, different variations of figs can serve as great indoor trees. And yes, you can get it to give you fruit, too!

Fishtail Palm

For a hint of the tropics, there’s no better plant than a palm tree. But if you’re looking for something with a more unique profile, the fishtail palm will certainly suit your fancy.

Money Tree

The money tree doesn’t just have a unique and lovely shape—it’s also said to be good luck for finances. Adding one to your home might not give you money, but it certainly will bring you beauty.

Rubber Plant

The eye-catching rubber plant isn’t too high maintenance and can both soften modern rooms and bring an air of sophistication to more casual spaces.

Bird of Paradise

Those vibrant neon-colored flowers with the same name found on tropical islands actually come from this tree. Most birds of paradise don’t flower indoors, but if you’re lucky and take the right steps it just might.

These pretty trees almost look flower-like with their clusters of bright green leaves. They’re not picky plants and might even help filter the air.

Parlor Palm

Like the fishtail palm, parlor palms are reminiscent of the tropics and provide a space with a burst of greenery that’s fairly easy to care for.

Corn Tree

While you won’t find ears of corn sprouting from this indoor tree, you’ll love its pretty display of bright leaves (that look similar to corn stalks) and its geometric-shaped trunk.
