Mixing Trending Tropicals® Houseplants

Discover creative ways to combine Trending Tropicals® houseplants.
Diverse, unusual, rare: these words are used throughout social media to describe the houseplants in the Trending Tropicals® collection. Placed on a table or bed stand, individual plants add instant life to a room. Single plants are show pieces, but displaying them together as a pair, trio, or larger group raises their appeal to a whole new level.

Creative styling
The art of houseplant display is a popular Instagram post. Mixing and matching plants indoors gives you the opportunity to show off plant characteristics as well as your own creative style. Here are some ideas for combining the charms of some of the Trending Tropicals® houseplants.

Pair tall and small
Opposites attract! Tall upright plants, such as Jacklyn Alocasia (Alocasia tandurusa) look stunning when growing next to smaller mounding or trailing plants, such as Little Swiss Monstera (Monstera adansonii)

Coordinate colors
Raven® ZZ's (Zamioculcas Dowon) dark shiny leaves contrast nicely with chartreuse leafed plants such as Painted Lady Philodendron. Both look beautiful separately, but really pop when together. Or if you don't like contrast, pair Raven® with equally dark and shiny Geo (Geogenanthus ciliatus).

Use variegation for excitement
Cool Beauty Dieffenbachia's colors really stand out when placed near an all-green big-leafed plant such as a Monstera Peru.

Combine contrasting leaves
Dark green Moonlight Scindapsus offers almond-shaped silvery leaves. Beautiful! But you can up the ante when you place it next to Philodendron tortum, whose ferny leaves add beautiful contrast.

Line them up
Thanks to the uniform look of Trending Tropicals® containers, you can mix and match all the plants in the collection. The pots create a sense of calm continuity. Choose a shelf or mantle on which to display same-size pots with a mix of plants.

Combine floor and table combos
Floor plants and tabletop plants create a synergy when displayed near each other. A grouping of Colorful Aglaonema, staggered by height, create a dramatic focal point.
