Calathea orbifolia, $40
With its large round striped leaves, Calathea orbifolia makes a pretty addition to any plant-filled apartment. The plant does best in medium to bright indirect light, likes high humidity and lots of water, and is pet-friendly.
Monstera deliciosa, $40
Another easy-to-care-for houseplant is the Monstera deliciosa, native to the Tropical Americas. It’s best known for its broad heart-shaped green leaves that have holes, or fenestrations. Nicknamed the “swiss cheese plant,” this plant thrives in bright indirect to medium light and needs to be watered every one to two weeks.
Fiddle leaf fig, $30
Fiddle leaf fig plants may need some more attention, but their pretty foliage makes a little work worth it. The Sill recommends keeping it in a stable environment, with bright light and a watering every one to two weeks.
Snake plant laurentii, $30
Characterized by tall, stiff striped leaves, the snake plant is super durable as an indoor plant. While medium to bright light is best, the plant can also tolerate low light.
Ric Rac cactus, $30
This zig-zag-shaped cactus from Mexico has thick, leathery leaves in a unique serrated shape. In addition to its unique look, other perks of the ric rac cactus include being pet friendly and easy to grow.
Small philodendron green, $30
A fit for any sunny shelf or window sill, the philodendron plant is one of the Sill’s most popular houseplants. Not only does the vining plant make any home look Instagram-worthy, but since it can tolerate both bright and low indirect light and doesn’t need frequent watering, it is also a great starter for any new plant parent.
Small upcycled planter, $37
As part of the birthday sale, you can snag discounted upcycled planters, made of agricultural by-products and natural fiber and finished with a non-toxic resin. Starting at $37 for a small size, the planters come in four colors, avocado, blue, cream, and stonewash.
