We know you're already taking 2019 by storm with your zodiac-inspired resolutions
, self-care regimen
, and organization overhaul
. While you're updating your space for the new year, be sure to pay special attention to your indoor garden. We asked Erin Marino — plant enthusiast, Brit + Co guest editor
, and director of brand marketing at The Sill
— what's trending for houseplants in 2019. And just like in our closets, moody hues and patterns are going to be all the rage. Click through the slideshow to see what everyone will be scooping up and planting in the year ahead.
Calathea Rattlesnake: This lush plant adds serene brushstrokes and dark purple to your collection. Keep in medium, indirect sunlight and water every 1 to 2 weeks when the potting mix is half-dry. Pro tip: They especially love filtered water.
Burgundy Rubber Tree: Jewel tones aren't just a closet staple for 2019. Keep these dark, glossy leaves looking fresh by displaying 'em in medium light and
watering once weekly.
Pothos Satin: The pothos loves bright, indirect light year round, so it's pretty safe to put them just about anywhere. Water it weekly, and don't worry if you forget — this plant can deal if you miss a week.
Alocasia Polly: Leave the windowsill for your cactus collection and stash this plant in medium, indirect light. Consider keeping it on the counter to add pattern in the bathroom — it thrives in warm temperatures and consistent humidity.
Calathea Medallion: Also known as the peacock plant, this patterned foliage is sure to mix things up in your collection. Water it every 1 to 2 weeks when the mix is half-dry, and be sure to share your filtered water because they love it. When the leaves look a little brown, increase the humidity.
