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

Autumn leaves will soon be falling, and we’re ready to embrace sweater weather and cozy up at home. Whether you’re a budding plant parent or just looking to bring the warmth and welcome of fall to your space, you’re in luck.

We rounded up six plant options that are fall-friendly, especially if your home is seeing less light these days.

1. Brighten Up Your Room with the Marble Queen Pothos

2. Add a Snake Plant for Even Your Darkest Corner

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
