Dracaena plants come in many different varieties and sizes. Dracaena Janet Craig is a tropical plant with bold canes and glossy dark, green leaves. It adds height and drama to any space. This plant prefers bright, indirect light, but it can tolerate lower light levels and can grow to 12-15 ft tall! Dracaena plants require evenly moist soils with good drainage.
NASA revealed that Dracaena plants also eliminate significant amounts of chemically formulated toxins in your home.
Plant #3: ZZ Plant
ZZ Plants are a popular choice for an indoor plant. They are known for their attractive, dark green leaves that can brighten any room. ZZ Plants are drought tolerant and resistant to disease and pests.

ZZ Plants have also proven their air-purifying abilities as they also remove copious amounts of chemically formulated toxins in your home.
Plant #4: Ponytail Palm
Ponytail Palms are unique and very low maintenance. The leaves can grow up to 5 ft long. The stem is what really sets this plant apart. It starts large and bulbous towards the root ball and slowly tapers towards the top. This is where the plant retains much of its moisture as it is more closely related to desert plants than actual palm trees.
Ponytail palms need fast and well-draining soil. Calloway’s Premium Potting Soil is always a great choice for a well-draining soil, or this type of plant could benefit from planting with Black Gold® Cactus Mix. Water only when the top 2 inches of potting soil is dry and place in a location that receives bright, indirect light.
Plant #5: Ficus Benjamina
Ficus plants are another great option for the indoors and they are also available in many different varieties! Ficus Benjamina, also known as Weeping Fig, is a tropical plant. It contains many pointed green leaves and a graceful weeping habit.
