3. TROPICAL PLANTS
There are many kinds of green tropical plants available in the market for you to decorate your home with.
Here are some tropical plants you can use for your tropical-style interior:
- Kentia Palm
This is one of the most common potted palms, sometimes called Sentry Palm. This plant is popular for many reasons; in addition to its beautiful appearance, it is also more shade-tolerant, cold-resistant, and grows slowly so that it does not grow too high. But if the growth environment is ideal, it can grow up to ten feet tall.
Although it is shade-tolerant and cold-resistant, it needs a certain amount of light to grow, resulting in more vibrantly-coloured leaves.
The lowest temperature should only be 10 degrees Celsius (55 degrees Fahrenheit) and no lesser.
Because of this plant’s slow growth, do not change pots frequently, except if the roots are too squeezed or cramped. Also, do not try to ramify the plant, as it may hurt the plant.
It is best to move this plant to a shaded place outdoors in summer, but remember to water it regularly and give it regular checks to prevent insects from corroding it.

Orchid lovers love these plants for their elegance and charm, regarding them as symbols of love and beauty.
Regardless of their species, orchids are very suitable for growing indoors, as they can thrive in a warm environment. They are also ornamental plants, so they are best suited for indoor viewing.
There are many varieties of orchids, each with their own aesthetic style and temperament. So the temperature indoors should not be too hot or too cold so they can bloom and grow well.
Orchids also do not do well with strong or harsh lighting, so one must ensure that their indoors lights are not too strong for their orchids to thrive.
