Have-to-Have Houseplants for 2019

Split-Leaf Monstera

While Instagram may have made the Swiss Cheese plant popular, we’ve been admiring their splits for years! It’s truly magical to watch the ebb and flow of the leaves emerge and unfold into a palm-sized beauty. Beyond its good looks, Split-Leaf monstera is excellent at holding its own with bright, indirect light and minimal watering making it an ideal low-maintenance beauty to commit to. If the light is too low, the plant may grow a little lanky, sprawling outward, but will still perform well. There may also be less splitting in the leaves.


🌿For the exuberant at heart, Split-Leaf monstera mimic’s your best personality traits for the perfect wingman.

Starfish Snake Plant
Sansevieria cylindrica
A rare specimen unique to the Sansevieria family, Starfish resembles more of a fat-fingered succulent, than other flat-bladed Snake Plant varieties. The care is essentially the same – less is more – as this dreamycoastal plant prefers drier soil. Also, bright, filtered light is preferred to maintain their subtle striping, but if necessary lower light will still keep a Starfish pointing upward.

🌿Starfish Snake Plant is ideal for the roaming wanderlust-filled plant lover who travels often, yearning for the salty air.
