All of them are used as a decorating plant. The best part is that this plant can decorate both the indoor as well as outdoor. But I would recommend it as better indoor plant as it is a very good air purifier.

Peace Lily:

If I say like the memers or other people on internet, Peace lily is what Peace would look like if it had a body...

Peace lily in real depicts the peace and beauty. It also bears beautiful white flowers and flat large leaves.


Croton is also known with it's scientific name,'Codiaeum variegatum'. I know this name doesn't seem familiar, but the plant is when you see it. It has a woody stem covered with large leaves having colors like green, yellow and even reddish yellow.

This plant is also an indoor as well as outdoor plant and looks amazing in both the places. For this plant the decision is on you wheather you want to decorate it inside or outside the house.

Golden Barrel Cacti:

Golden barrel Cacti is one of the most elegant and classy looking cacti. Unlike other cacti species it doesn't grow into several nodes and inter-nodes. All there this plant has is a spherical green stem with beautiful spines having golden color. It will enhance the look of your desk or shelf with a beautiful black or brown designed pot.


This name seems familiar, doesn't it? Yes, you guessed it right, it is the one with the triangular and purple leaves. This plant is also referred as False Shamrock or the Love Plant.

Actually the triangular ones are a part of the leaf rather than being the leaves. The Three triangular parts joined together at the petiole actually form a leaf.

Oxalis is unique because of it's different shape and color of the leaves. It makes a beautiful combination which at the end makes the scene look elegant and beautiful...
