Best Indoor Plants for Oregon?

Asked October 16, 2018, 4:18 PM EDT

What are the best/easiest indoor house plants to grow in the Willamette Valley Oregon? The tropical varieties I have purchased at home depot such as the Ti plant aren't happy. I have big windows and a lot of light in part of the house, and in others, it is darker. I'd like something on the larger side - would consider a small indoor tree.

Ti plants aren't the easiest to grow, as you've found out, but any type of Philodendron, Monstera, Ficus tree will work. Here are others:
  1. Pothos (Epipremnum aureum cvs.) ...
  2. Split Leaf Philodendron (Monstera deliciosa) ...
  3. Peace Lily (Spathiphyllum wallisii) ...
  4. Flamingo Flower (Anthurium andreanum) ...
  5. Bromeliad Family. ...
  6. Dracaena Genus. ...
  7. Spider Plant (Chlorophytum comosum) ...
  8. Umbrella Tree (Schefflera arboricola cvs.)
Good luck!
