9 House Plants Every Mom Is Crushing on Right Now

Sharing is caring!

House plants are all the rage lately. Every advertisement you look at and styled Instagram home… what do you see? PLANTS!

A house plant brings a certain freshness to a home and let’s face it, they’re easier to care for than kids! House plants don’t talk back, complain about meals, or leave toys underfoot 🙂

I suspect their simplicity and ease is one of the reasons mamas are constantly adding plant babies to their “family” and their Mother’s Day wish lists. The more the merrier!


Aloe — My personal favorite! Aloe is hearty and needs minimal watering. It also serves as a natural first aid kit! The inside of each leaf can soothe burns and heal minor wounds.

Lavender — Gift calm with this peaceful scent.

Air Plants — No dirt needed and only occasional misting. These are easy and pretty!

Herbs — If your mama loves to cook (or eat!), gather a few herbs in her honor. Basil is always a winner as is oregano, rosemary, and cilantro.

Fiddle Leaf Fig

Fiddle Leaf Fig — These start small and grow BIG! They have a reputation of being temperamental, but I’ve found that the trick is in minimal watering (like every 2 weeks) and moisture monitoring with a water meter (include one with your gift and your mama will be set for fiddle leaf fig success).

Ivy — Invasive outside, welcome inside!

Snake plant

Snake Plant — Well, that’s the common name. You can call it sansevieria if you’d like to be fancy.

Cacti — The Christmas cactus is a gorgeous choice if you’d like a cactus that blooms.

Heart Leaf Philodendron — This one is on my personal wish list! They cascade beautifully from a hanging planter.

Mamas, what other house plants are you crushing on right now?
