10 indoor plants for that chic boho aesthetic

Nature is all around us but for some it’s no where close to their living rooms. When fixing up a room we know the two main essentials usually include paint and furniture. We, however, have decided to add a third: indoor plants.

Indoor plants or house plants are, as their name defines, plants that are grown indoors. Mostly grown to be ornamental, indoor plants have shown to even give positive mental effects.

Infulge us for a moment, wil you. Now, you’ve just paid more than half of your new apartment’s two-year advance. You’re moving in. You’ve done your wallpaper across each room’s four walls. You want to create a home just not a house and so you decide to interior decorate. You want an easy bohemian yet authentically Ghanaian aesthic. Maybe some wood figurines, large pillows, fairy lights and pieces of wax prints.  The antique shops at Lapaz become your new best friend. Now your rooms look habitable but you need that touch of nature- that touch of green. Here’s where these gorgeous indoor plants come in.

Do not be deceived. You do not need to be a natural green thumb to have an indoor plant. This list of indoor plants are not only hardy but can even thrive despite some neglect.

Here are 10 indoor plants for that chic boho aesthetic.
