The 10 Best Indoor Trees to Spruce Up Your Home
From Calamansi to Yucca, these indoor trees will definitely bring greenery into your home!
Let’s admit it: There is no such thing as too many houseplants, especially when it comes to making a bold, dramatic, and gorgeous statement. Houseplants add so much to our homes, like promoting a positive mood and purifying the air. While we love small houseplants, we can’t deny the beauty and uniqueness of lush indoor trees.
Yes, indoor trees are the right houseplants to fill that awkward corner of your home. When you are choosing indoor trees, consider their location, the natural light, and what fits your plant personality.
Calamondin Orange, also known as Calamansi, Philippine lemon, or Philippine lime, is a dwarf orange variety that prefers direct sunlight for at least several hours every day. Calamansi tree produces small, very sour fruits, and fragrant white flowers that smell amazing.
Sunlight: Provide direct sunlight for at least 6 to 8 hours every day.
Water: Keep the soil moist but not wet. Allow the top inch of soil to dry out before watering.

A lack of intelligence has absolutely nothing to do with the easy-to-care, lush, and vibrant indoor tree. Dumb Cane, also known as Dieffenbachia, is a recommended houseplant for beginners since it’s easy to care for and grow. A small variety of Dumb Cane plants can grow from 12 inches to 24 inches, while a tall variety can grow up to 6 feet tall.
Sunlight: Dumb Cane plant prefers bright, indirect sunlight or partial shade. However, it can tolerate full shade, which is why it is perfect as a houseplant.
Water: Keep the top inch of soil moist, but do not overwater your Dumb Cane plant. It can tolerate missed watering, but extended periods of watering neglect can make its leaves shrivel.
Omysa Plant Care Tip: Your Dumb Cane plant loves being outside during the summer. They will flourish under the summer sun.
Fiddle Leaf Fig
Even though it’s considered a fussy plant, the Fiddle Leaf Fig is still one of the best indoor trees. It’s not suitable for beginners, but if you think that you can keep this plant alive, then you can add it to your home. The Fiddle Leaf Fig hates change. It’s one of the reasons they lose their lively appearance. Pick a spot where it can get bright, indirect light.
Sunlight: To keep your Fiddle Leaf Fig alive and healthy, it’s best to put it near a sunny, east-facing window where it can take in lots of bright, indirect light.
Water: Water only when the soil is dry.

An extremely popular succulent houseplant that symbolizes fortune and good wealth. The Jade plant can actually live for years if provided with the right conditions and a little TLC. The Jade plant can grow up to 5 feet tall indoors, and it will produce attractive and mildly fragrant white flowers every winter season.
