Live House Plants At Amazon

Today I’m looking at live house plants at Amazon. I’ve done too much in the office, and now I’m having more trouble walking again.

I get excited about decorating and it’s hard to reign myself in. But then I pay a price. Is it worth it? That’s hard to calculate because I so love decorating.

So I may have to go this route when I’m buying house plants. The house plants I’ve chosen to show you are all ones I would purchase for myself.

3 Piece Owl With Succulent Set

In Live House Plants At Amazon, this is a 3 piece white owl pots with succulents on a stand

This is a 3 piece set of Owl Succulent Pots with drainage holes. The plant pots are quite small at a little over 2 inches high, but aren’t the owl pots cute?

From what I read, the wood stand comes with the set of 3 plants and is under $20.

With indoor succulents, insufficient sunlight and improper watering are just a few common mistakes to avoid at all costs.

Place plants near a bright south-facing window. A plant leaning towards the light isn’t getting enough sun, but a plant whose leaves have burn spots are getting too much direct sunlight.

Succulent plants become dormant in cold, winter months, so they need less water during that time. Over watering succulent soil is one of the root causes of most growth issues, so be careful to only water your succulents as often as necessary.

Mini Bonsai Money Tree Plant

Money tree plant in terracotta pot

You can buy this live money tree plant already planted in a pretty rustic terracotta clay pot with a heart design, so I think the price is very reasonable.

In addition, it has a 5 star rating from Amazon customers. And you know I always, always pay attention to the ratings!

The money tree plant prefers indirect bright light, and can adjust to lower light. Too much direct light will scorch the leaves, but too little light will cause slow growth and yellow leaves.

Water when the soil volume is 50-75% dry. Always check the soil moisture before watering again. Water thoroughly until you see water flow out of the drainage hole and discard any excess water in the saucer.

Pony Tail Palm

In Live House Plants At Amazon, this is a pony tail palm, one of my favorites

I just love this plant. The trunk of the pony tail palm is so interesting and I like the uniqueness and shape of it.

Ponytail palms prefer to have as much light as possible, so place the plant in a bright location. Bright, indirect sunlight is best. Keep the soil fairly dry.

Because they are succulents, ponytail palms can go long periods without water. Allow the top 2 to 3 inches of soil to dry out between watering and then give the plant a good soak.

Bird Of Paradise Plant

This Bird Of Paradise plant is 2-3 feet tall and can grow to 6 feet tall. It is in an attractive plastic container.

Birds of Paradise enjoy moist (but not soggy) soil, while being allowed to dry out slightly between watering. Try not to let the soil dry completely, but also avoid over-watering this plant.

Allow the top 2″ – 3″ of the soil to become dry, but below that the soil should remain moist.

Fiddle Leaf Fig

In Live House Plants At Amazon, this is a fiddle leaf fig plant in a terracotta pot

Fiddle leaf fig, or ficus Lyrata houseplants, are lush and green plants with beautiful shiny leaves. It has also been a popular plant when it comes to decorating blogs.

These plants need a lot of natural light and do best when placed directly in front of a window. Water thoroughly about once a week, allowing the top couple inches of soil to dry out before watering again.

Spider Plant

A spider plant

This is an easy to care for spider plant. It can grow up to 24 inches and also looks great in a hanging pot.

The spider plant is a low maintenance plant. Place the plant in bright to moderate light and keep the soil slightly moist.

Once-a-week watering is sufficient in spring and summer; in winter allow the soil to dry a bit more before watering it again.

I tend to over water, so I will have to watch it with this plant.

Snake Plant

The snake plant, also called Mother In Law's Tongue

This is the snake plant, also called Mother-In-Law’s Tongue (Sansevieria). Grow the snake plant in bright, indirect sunlight.

The snake plant is an ideal choice for beginner gardeners because it is difficult to kill!

Snake plant thrives in warm weather and struggles in cold conditions. Only water the plant if the soil feels dry.

ZZ Plant

In Live House Plants At Amazon, this is the popular ZZ plant

The ZZ Plant, or Zamioculcas zamiifolia, has been a popular plant the past few years.

This plant needs partial shade, which might account for its popularity. It is easy to grow, with a tropical feel.

The ZZ plant grows best by placing it in bright, indirect sunlight. Water with approximately 1 cup of water about once per week.

Red Chinese Evergreen

Chinese evergreen plant in a terracotta pot

This plant likes medium, indirect light. It will take partial sun. Water it about once a week with approximately 1 cup. Ensure that excess water drains out the bottom.

The Red Chinese Evergreen, or Aglaonema, is generally a slow grower, depending on the environment and care provided.

Exposure to the sap of this plant may cause discomfort to individuals with a sensitivity to it upon contact. I have grown this plant in the past and never had any problem or sensitivity to it. But that is just my experience with the plant.

I also love the Chinese Evergreen that has green edges on the leaves instead of red. This sturdy plant is wonderfully easy to grow. It tolerates just about every indoor condition. While it’s one of the toughest plants, it’s also quite beautiful.

Chinese Evergreen:

I did not add the more common Chinese evergreen plant here on this post. But the Chinese evergreen is one of the most popular houseplants grown in the home due to its ease of care.

You can find Chinese evergreen plants in many varieties, including other variegated forms.

Golden Pothos

In Live House Plants At Amazon, this is the golden pothos

And last but certainly not least, the golden pothos plant, which is one of my favorite plants. It grows quickly and has beautiful variegated leaves.

Place the golden pothos plant in medium, indirect sunlight. Give it 1 cup of water about once per week.

This plant, along with the similar one with white variegated leaves, have always been a delight to grow. I look forward to having another one in my home.

Greenery In Our Homes:

Seeing greenery and nature in our homes help us feel more relaxed.

NASA studies show that having plants in your home improves your mood, sparks your creativity, and reduces stress. Live indoor plants are also natural air purifiers, helping filter harmful pollutants from indoor air.

Real plants deliver real benefits and are enjoyable to tend to and watch grow. I have been growing house plants since my early twenties when my children were young.

I had an older friend who enjoyed house plants just as much as I did, and we would trade plant cuttings. Sadly, she is no longer with us. But we had lots of fun times together chatting about our house plants and shopping for them.

  1. Just a comment about Fiddle Leaf Figs. They can grow 15-20′ tall – the “Little Fiddle” is a dwarf specimen and is good for tables, desks etc. Your description does say Little Fiddle but I just wanted to bring that to your attention if you buy one. They are quite easy to take care of. I also have a Black ZZ plant that I almost ignore and it does well – they say it is a great beginner plant because it’s so easy. You can never go wrong w Pothos and they are one of the best air purifiers, so they say. You may also want to look at Home Depot or Lowes online – they list a lot of houseplants, some for delivery. This is the Little Fiddle that I bought at HD two years ago and it was well priced at $20 but it is for pickup only:
    If you made a specific list of things could maybe Steve or your girls grab them at the store for you? Just a thought to save on delivery costs. Then you can buy more plants!!!
    Whatever you do I hope you find some fun plants that you will enjoy very much!

  2. I love plants and would love more, but nowhere to put them! I just counted…I have 29. Snake plants and ZZ plants are two of the easiest ones to take care of. They don’t need much light and they only need to be watered once a month.

    You showed a ponytail palm: you have one of these, right? How is it doing?

  3. I have an all green spider plant in addition to my variegated spider plant. My neighbor gave me some curly babies and I agree they are the cutest. Putting a coffee filter in the bottom of the pot will keep the soil in and let water out. I just got a beautiful plant today. It is a Calathea Pink stripe Ornata prayer plant. I can’t wait to see it open and close.

  4. Plants are not included in the 3 piece owl pot set with stand. They’re very cute pots, but so little it doesn’t seem likely they’d be practical for most plants. Succulents may work, if they’re slow growers. The 3 layer stand is less than 7 inches tall.

  5. By the way there is also a curly spider plant that is much cuter than the normal one…

  6. My daughter worked in a green house and taught me to water my succulents and snake plant once a month and place them in a container of water and water from the bottom up.I water all my plants from the bottom now…this keeps those little flies from forming…it works great.. To the person wondering…you can Google each plant and it will tell you which ones are bad for animals…I bought a beautiful plant stand from hobby lobby so can keep up high the ones that could hurt my cat…my daughters cat ate the shamrock she just got…she was so disappointed…at least they come back after you cut them back…have fun…I use pottery and even some antique dishes to sit my plants in…a very nice look…love the owls and the pot with hearts on it…💕

    1. I should have listed which ones weren’t good for animals. I don’t think many of them were non-toxic that I listed. Just pretty! I will have to remember to water from the bottom because I have a bad habit of over watering and end up with those horrid fungus gnats.

  7. I bought a ZZ plant about 6 months ago at Aldi. For several months it was just fine. My husband put fertilizer in the water one day, and it is so HAPPY! It is putting out new shoots right and left. I will need to divide it soon, because it’s going to outgrow the pot.

    1. Too bad I’m not close by. I’d take the other one when you divide it in a hot minute! But then you may want to keep it anyway. I’m glad it’s doing so well. I’ve actually never had that plant before and was wondering if it was hard to grow.

  8. They are all beautiful plants, but that first one with the 3 little owl plants is my favorite! I also like the pony tail palm and the money tree. Someone asked if you know if these plants are pet friendly. I’d like to know that too. I don’t know the names of all of my plants, but I do know I have an aloe plant. Do you know if that’s safe for dogs? Would you please do a post on which plants are pet friendly, and which ones should be avoided if you have a fur baby? Thanks!

    1. If you go to the aspca dot org website and type in the search bar toxic and non-toxic plants you will get a list with pictures.You can also select a list specific to dogs, cats and even horses.
      The Aloe plant is toxic, as well as the Snake plant and the ZZ plant to name a few.
      Some that I have that are non-toxic are the Ponytail Palm, the Money Tree and Christmas Cactus.

      1. Thank you! I guess I will need to either get rid of my aloe plant or put it up higher, out of reach.

  9. I only have 2 Christmas cactus plants up high as I have a cat that likes to chew on plants so I look for cat grass for him when I grocery shop.

    1. I’ve never given Ivy cat grass. She doesn’t seem to want to mess with house plants. Once in a while I’d see her bat at a stray leaf hanging down.

  10. The owl planters with stand are so cute. My only concern would be the watering….you mentioned they had drainage holes. I would hate for the water to go out of the holes onto the nice stand…it would make a mess with dirt and water to sop up. And because the pots fit so perfectly in their round slots, it doesn’t look like you could put anything underneath them to catch the drips…unless small white tea cup saucers could work. Tho’ since they are succulents and don’t need to be watered often, you could take them to the sink and water and dry them off there.

    1. I was reading the description of the owl planters.
      #1. plants are not included
      #2. it comes with a tray so it won’t leak water and soil
      I was curious about the hole on the bottom too. I have some planters that have drainage holes, but come with a plug, in case you don’t want the hole. I didn’t see that in the description of these owl pants. That all being said, they are definately my favorite as they are adorably cute. It wouldn’t be hard to buy little succulents for it. And if you use artificial plants, then the drainage holes wouldn’t matter, lol. I like them.

    2. That’s what I was thinking: I’d take them to the sink and water and let them drain out. That way there would be no way they’d end up sitting in water, which would be the death knell for them.

  11. I love all the plants especially the spider plant. The owl planters with the plants are adorable and a good value. I will have to take a good look at Amazon. I did order some ice plants which is a ground cover from QVC. I also have seeds to plant and I hope I can find some Moss Rose this year. I had not been going going to the stores the last few years and really missed the beautiful multicolored flowers of that succulent. Have a great day.

  12. Interested in getting some indoor plants also. Are all of those plants dog and cat safe? Thanks.

    1. I actually don’t think any of them are pet safe. Someone asked above if I’d do a post on pet-safe plants and toxic ones. I just listed those because they were pretty. Ivy never has nibbled at any plants. She doesn’t seem interested in them. I will do a post on that real soon.

  13. The owl pots with succulents and stand are absolutely adorable. I’m also smitten with the pot that the snake plant is in, the white pot with the brown markings. There is something about the repetition of a pattern that is pleasing to me. Thanks for sharing and I can’t wait to see which one’s you choose.

  14. I love all these plants, alas I do not have the room for many plants, I don’t have any window sills, I have some furniture pieces I could use but I think I am a minimalist and already have things on them. I do have two plants that are on the floor, one I bought thinking it was going to be small but it has grown like crazy so its now in a big pot, I don’t know the name of it, it has wonderful shiny dark green leaves and it doesn’t like a lot of sun at all or the leaves turn dull. The other one is a tropical plant that I bought for the garden which of course has to come inside for the winter.
    Loved yesterdays New and Notables Brenda, didn’t have time to comment as I was outside for some time clearing the snow!
