What is a minimalist plant? For most of my life I was under the impression that this was simply another word for “unattractive”, and I avoided it like the plague. A friend once told me, with some irritation, that it was difficult to find minimalist pieces. She was shopping in her local garden centre, and she said she really liked the flowers, but that the house plant wasn’t so attractive.
Pothos are one of those plants that lend a certain style to your living space, especially if you get a pale green one with small yellow flowers. They come in a wide variety of shapes, colours and sizes. They can be potted, or you can grow them from seed. I grew mine from seed. I also loved their bushy texture. For my neighbours, who had pothos growing all over their garden, they would occasionally let my pothos go, taking them away from their potted plants.
The reason I mentioned pothos first, was because they are often associated with minimalist homes. Pothos come in a wide range of shapes and sizes, and they don’t always look good with a contemporary decor. To avoid too much of the contemporary look, choose a plant that doesn’t have very strong, bold leaves. Choose a plant with small, rounded leaves. You should also consider placing your pothos in a location where it gets a lot of bright indirect light, rather than direct sunlight.
If you’re looking for a minimalist plant, there are many varieties available. One popular plant is the Cactus. This small, cactus-like plant is perfect for minimalist design because it doesn’t have very strong, bold leaves. It is best placed on accent-boards, high shelves, and anywhere where it receives a lot of indirect light. Because it has a small amount of foliage, it will rarely grow up to four feet in height, which is great if you want to use it as part of a larger grouping of plants or a decorative centerpiece in your room.
Air Plants can also be used as an accent piece and are great for people who prefer minimal design. These air plants can be placed in your room as wall plants or on bookshelves, especially if you place them on bookshelves that get a lot of indirect light. Air plants make great, inexpensive decorating pieces because air plants don’t require a lot of maintenance. Some even release oxygen into the air, which can help keep your room healthy and vibrant.
Speaking of minimalism, there are several different types of trees that would work well as an accent in a minimalist space. Larch, maple, and spruce trees are very popular for this style. Their pale green leaves add a soft, clean lines to any room. If you want a more dramatic effect, try birch, alder, or oak leaves. These types of trees also have a lovely, open appearance.
There are other plants that would also be ideal for adding minimalism to your environment. Ferns and herbaceous plants work well, since their large leaves will cover up the smallness of the plant. The flowers will feature an open texture and be white, pink, red, or colored. Ferns usually come in bronzers, but you could also opt for a more solid looking ficus. You could place these plants anywhere in the room where you want to soften the look and create an air of elegance.
One plant that is perfect for creating a feeling of minimalism is the ficus. The ficus comes in a variety of colors, but the more common color is cream. The ficus grows quite well, and you can expect to have at least two ficus plants growing simultaneously. This will allow you to have a nice complement of ficus plants around, and if you plant these plants in the right places, you will feel like you’re in a desert.
