Fiddle leaf figs and monsteras have unquestionably reigned as the most sought-after house plants this year. But as with any trend, there’s always something new on the rise.

Whether an old favorite or a new star, here are 5 of the most popular houseplants for fall.

ZZ Plant

ZZ plants are quickly gaining popularity, so be sure and snag one before your local nurseries start to sell out. They are fast-growing, easy to keep alive and they thrive in low lighting (perfect for apartments). 

The Raven variety has also been getting attention lately, thanks to its moody look with dark purplish, almost black leaves. 

String of Pearls

This cute little plant looks perfect spilling down over the edge of a wall shelf or tall piece of furniture. They like bright, indirect light and prefer to dry out between waterings. 

String of pearls are also easy to propagate, so once you’ve got one you can grow more for all of your friends.

Snake Plant

Snake plants certainly are not the new kid on the block, but their popularity seems to be holding firm. Probably because, like some others on this list, they are pretty hard to kill. Just water every one or two weeks and you should be good.

Variegated Plants

This is possibly the biggest trend in houseplants right now. A variegated plant means that part of the leaves will be a different color. 

This mostly occurs as a bi-colored plant, but tri-colored can be found. Often the secondary color will be white, but yellow, pink and other shades of green are also known.

Common species that can be found with variegated forms include Philodendron, Hoya, Monstera deliciosa, Pothos and Calathea. Just be aware, the variegated versions will cost you more.

Bird of Paradise

Can’t forget this beauty. If you are looking for a larger stature houseplant that makes a statement, this is a great go-to. 

They love consistent watering and bright but indirect light, so don’t place a Bird of Paradise right next to a window. 

If you’re now feeling inspired to improve your indoor plant game, this list will help you know what to look for to stay ahead of the houseplant trends.
