Looking for fun houseplants for your Arizona home that will survive the intense sunlight and high temperatures? Then look no further, we’ve compiled a list of some of the best indoor plants for Arizona with plants you know and hopefully some you haven’t thought of before.
In our recommendations of best indoor plants for Arizona we are going to choose plants that require little environmental changes from yourself. So we’ll be compiling our list based on the idea that you won’t be using humidifiers and come up with plants that will do well in a regular Arizona household. If you think your house may be more humid than we’re giving it credit for then why not use a hygrometer to measure the humidity levels in your home to help you decide on which houseplant to get.
So let’s take a look at the climate in Arizona, although there are more humid regions the majority of the state has an arid or semi arid climate with high temperatures and strong sun all year long. Which makes it the perfect environment for some pretty interesting houseplants. Let’s take a look at some cool plants for your Arizona home.
This may be an obvious choice and you might have already thought of it but a perfect plant for Arizona homes is the Cactus. Able to withstand intense sunlight and higher temperatures while not needing that much watering a Cactus is the perfect choice. Luckily, if you’re not much of a cactus fan, there are other choices so keep reading.
The Snake Plant is one of our top choices for life in an Arizona home. They are hardy plants that can withstand full sun, higher temperatures and drier air, and to top it off they look fantastic. Snake Plants are easy to care for, make sure you allow the soil to dry out between waterings and they will benefit greatly from being placed in a terracotta pot as these pots suck moisture away from the roots which is perfect for your Snake Plant.
A Succulent is a perfect choice for an Arizona home and is a bit different from your run of the mill Cactus. Succulents are great as they store all their water in their big fleshy leaves meaning they don’t need to be watered often and can withstand higher temperature. As Succulents are becoming increasingly popular they are a great candidate for a new houseplant as you should be able to find them in most plant shops.
Aloe Vera Plant
An Aloe Vera plant is a succulent style plant but a nice change from the typical succulents that you find everywhere. Again these plants store much of their water in their succulent stems so make sure you allow the soil to dry out between waterings to avoid root rot.
We’ve saved the best til last: the Ponytail Palm. This quirky plant can tolerate full sun, high temperatures and it looks fantastic. The name might be misleading, it’s not a palm at all but rather a succulent, making it perfect for the Arizona climate. If you’re looking for something a bit different then this is the plant for you. Of course this Ponytail Palm is a little on the larger size but you can get cute houseplant size ones as well.
So there you have our list of the best indoor plants for Arizona, we hope you enjoy our selection and let us know if you think there are any good ones we’ve missed off.
