If you’re looking to add some new plants to your home just in time for cozy season, we’ve got you covered.

Autumn leaves are falling, and we’re embracing sweater weather and cozy time at home. If you’re a budding plant parent or would just like to add a new plant or two, you’re in luck.

We rounded up 6 plant options that are fall-friendly, especially if your home is seeing less light than the dog days of summer. 

1. Brighten Up Your Room with the Marble Queen Pothos

2. Add a Snake Plant for Even Your Darkest Corner

This Snake Plant can be placed in a spot that receives anything from bright indirect light all the way to low light, so consider it the most versatile plant pick you can add to your home.

3. Pick a Bird's Nest Fern for a Happy Pet

4. Get Moving with the Calathea Rattlesnake

As a prayer plant, this Calathea raises and lowers its leaves from day to night as part of its circadian rhythm, so place it in any bright indirect to low light spot (maybe your nightstand) as a reminder to go with the flow.


5. Hang Around with the Philodendron Green

6. Complete Your Sill with the Pilea Peperomioides
