Winter is a great time of year to ramp up the greenery in our homes. As we spend more time indoors, we can enjoy bringing the outdoors, in!

Whilst plants don’t enjoy the drying effect of our heating, we caught up with Naomi from Cool Cactus to get the top 3 choices for tough plants which will endure the changes in humidity and temperature this winter.

Philodendron Congo

Philodendron Congo:

Bold lush large green leaves create an instant tropical feeling inside.

Monstera Plant


One of everyone’s favourite plants year round, this tough plant is suited to most positions indoors with filtered light. Its sprawling growth habit has a lovely jungalow feeling. Dust leaves with a damp cloth to keep them healthy.

Umbrella Tree

Umbrella tree:

A tough plant with bright green glossy leaves, this is a great option if you are wanting to achieve a tropical look inside with some height as the Umbrella tree grows to around 2m.
