Meet the *It* Plants of 2023

22 Nov | Biophilic Design

Can you have too many plants? We fervently believe the answer is no! But if you’re tired of fiddle leaf figs, Monsteras and pothos then we have the scoop on 2023 picks for up-and-coming indoor plants and style trends.

Alocasia Black VelvetFrench artist Pierre-Auguste Renoir once said, “the queen of all colors [is] black” and nothing proves his point quite like the Alocasia Black Velvet. This gorgeous plant has leaves so dark that they are almost black, lending it a moody vibe that will look great in any room or add an interesting pop to a plant wall. The Alocasia Black Velvet is a low-light plant, so it will thrive pretty much anywhere you put it.

The Bird of Paradise
Coming in at six feet or taller, this plant is definitely a statement piece! The Bird of Paradise is part of the living artwork trend, and we love how one plant can make us feel like we’re in the jungle. It does best in a bright, sunny spot so make sure this plant is near a window.
Strings of SucculentsSucculents have been trending for many years, but we’re moving away from the more traditional aloe vera and the floral looking graptopetalum hybrids. The new kids on the block are the string of pearls, bananas, and pickles succulent! These plants are perfect for any tabletop and add a great pop of color. Succulents need direct sunlight so they’re ideal for by the window.

Cat Palm
If you want a versatile plant that can flourish both indoors and outdoors, then you want a cat palm! It may look dainty, but this plant is tough and can survive in different light levels and through temperature swings. The Cat Palm lends a tropical vibe and is another living artwork piece.
Stromanthe Triostar
If you’re tired of a sea of green, then the stromanthe triostar offers a refreshing pop of color! The leaves of this plant look like a painting, with blended green, pink and red. Triostars grow best in bright, indirect light. They can survive in low light but their colorful leaves will fade.

Money Trees
Put your office in the right mindset with money trees! This plant gets it name from a Chinese legend: a poor man prayed for money and found the Pachira aquatica, the official name of the money tree. He took the beautiful plant home, planted more and soon became wealthy from selling the plant! The Money Tree prefers indirect bright light but can still succeed in lower light, making it a great choice for the office.
