Hemet Living Room with an Indoor TreeIf you’re a Hemet renter with a green thumb, you are probably curious about what plants and trees are best to grow indoors. You must be aware that not all types of trees will grow indoors, where they might not receive a lot of direct sunlight throughout the day. Not to worry – we’ve got you covered! In this article, we’ll look at the best trees to grow indoors and some tips on how to care for them. It doesn’t matter if you’re seeking a little greenery or want to make a full-blown indoor garden; these trees are sure to please!

How to Choose an Indoor Tree

One of the important considerations to remember when picking an indoor tree is the amount of light it will need. While some trees can grow in low-light settings, others will need bright, direct sunlight to survive. If you’re doubtful about how much light your rental home receives, ask your Hemet property manager. It’s also important to talk to a nursery or gardening professional before making your selection.

Best Trees for Low Light

Several different varieties of trees can grow well indoors. These trees thrive without direct sunlight, which is ideal if your rental home has good natural lighting but little direct sunlight during the day.

Some of the best low-light trees to grow indoors include:

  • The Lady Palm is a palm tree that can evolve up to six feet tall. It’s perfectly suitable for adding a touch of the tropics to your indoor space!
  • Weeping Fig trees are well-known for having long, cascading branches. They can achieve eight feet tall and survive in either low or bright light.
  • The Norfolk Island Pine is a species of evergreen that can grow up to 40 feet tall (but this is not a problem since it can be easily pruned to a more manageable size!).
  • The Money Tree is a species of Ficus tree that is believed to bestow good luck. It can reach six feet tall and flourishes in low light.
  • The Rubber Plant is another form of Ficus tree that can evolve up to eight feet tall. It’s a perfect way to add a splash of green to any room!
  • The Dragon Tree is a type of palm tree that has the potential to grow to a height of 12 feet tall. It’s a lovely plant having spiky greenery at the top.

Best Trees for Bright Light

If your rental home has a lot of direct sunlight during the day, you’re in luck! Many different kinds of trees can flourish in bright light.

Some of the best bright-light indoor trees include:

  • Bonsai trees are an excellent option for adding beauty to any room. They can be grown in various shapes and sizes and thrive in both low and bright light.
  • The Fiddle Leaf Fig is a sort of tree that can grow up to eight feet tall. It’s another tree that will elevate the vibes of the area it resides.
  • The Bird of Paradise is a tropical plant that can reach up to six feet tall, providing a little taste of vacation in your ordinary life.
  • The Ponytail Palm is a type of tree that can attain up to 12 feet tall. True to its name, this small tree has long, curly leaves that move like hair.

Tips for Growing Trees Indoors

Once you have determined the best tree for your indoor space, it’s advisable to begin the growing process! Below are some ideas to help you get started:

  1. Start with a small tree or plant that is easy to care for. This will assist you in becoming accustomed to the watering and feeding schedule and any other necessary maintenance.
  2. Make sure you read the instructions that were provided with your tree or plant. You can use that to determine how much water and sunlight it needs and any other special requirements.
  3. Keep an eye on your tree or plant, and don’t forget to contact a professional if you have any questions or concerns. With some effort and attention, your indoor tree is flourishing in no time!
