On the Sunshine Coast we have, normally :), pretty consistent weather. this allows us to grow some pretty amazing plants. I thought we would go through our Nursery & Garden Centre and pick our Top 5 Indoor Plants to grow on the Sunshine Coast.

Plant 1.

Ficus Lyrata 

Also known as the Fiddle leaf fig. It is a Native of western Africa where it grows in lowland tropical rainforest. If in the ground and in good conditions the fiddle leaf fig can grow up to 12-15m tall however if grown in Pots and used indoors you can keep the fiddle leaf fig looking amazing and quite a feature piece in your house.


Plant 2.

Rhaphis excelsa 

more commonly know as a Lady Palm or Bamboo Palm this amazing indoor plant originated from Southern China and Taiwan. It is a slower growing plant which makes it perfect for indoor use. its more slender and narrower growth pattern also lends itself to be used more regularly as it doesn't take up a lot of space but can also provide some height against a wall or corner feature.

Plant 3.

Strelitzia Nicolai

We recommend that you grow this plant in a pot and we use them more often as Indoor feature plants because of the beautiful waxy green foliage. It is also commonly known as the Giant Bird of Paradise which is actually a species of banana like plants that can grow up to 6 m in height and 3-4m wide if planted in the ground.
