Not much can cause your shoebox of an apartment to feel like a lush, tropical paradise than indoor trees. A few things are non-negotiable to keep so grand a specimen alive and well—namely, tall enough ceilings to house it comfortably and enough natural light to make it feel like home (home being its native habitat, of course). So no, the dark interior corner of a room isn’t probably the best place for it. And yes, you’re probably better off buying a young tree and letting it grow and adapt to your home’s conditions (which will be cheaper than buying a huge tree, anyway) 😎 It is doable! Many trees and tropical indoor plants can thrive indoors if cared for properly 😎 Read through to discover 17 of the best indoor trees and tropical plants that will thrive inside your living room. 
Looking for a tall, elegant plant to create a sunny, California-style vibe in your high-ceilinged space? The dracaena, known as corn plant or dragon tree, can grow up to 12 feet tall. With their long, woody stalks that grow all the way up to a clump of stripy, ribbon-like leaves on top, these plants mimic the look of tall, stately Los Angeles palm trees on a smaller scale. Your corn plant will grow best (and fastest) with lots of bright, indirect light, but they can adapt to spaces with less light, too. Corn plants are also pretty low-maintenance—they can tolerate underwatering, but not overwatering—and offer the added benefit of helping to clean the air of toxic chemicals. 
Salvador Silverman at countryliving.com revealed how while tiny potted plants on your counters and windowsill are certainly a fine place to start, the real bang for your buck lies with indoor tree plants. With a variety of leaf shapes and styles that can grow floor to ceiling when given the proper care, these tall indoor trees boost the style factor and liveability of any room. They can also help you, or any other budding green thumbs in your home, begin developing the skills and responsibility necessary to care for another living thing, as many of the varieties listed here are easy care houseplants and require minimal maintenance. (Most of these plants need a minimum amount of moisture, but some do require regular watering.) (we truly thank Ashliegh Brenner from Jingjiang, China for their advice). 
Tiny houseplants are adorable and all, but large, oversized houseplants and indoor trees are a growing (sorry, couldn’t resist!) trend. Not only do they add a whole lot of life to your home, but they’re also a great option if you want to make a statement with your decor. Just a few tall plants are all it takes to turn your home into a tropical oasis, your own personal indoor jungle, or even a Tuscan villa. But you can’t just fill your home with any old plants—make sure you get one that you can take care of, too. After all, the bigger the plant, the more expensive it usually is, so you’ll want to make sure you do your research before spending. Here are some of the most popular oversized plants and tall indoor trees out there, where to buy them, and how to keep them thriving in your home.
