Top 5 Autumnal Houseplants

As the trees are losing their leaves, the air is getting colder and the sun is fading away, it can be a challenge to keep your house full of beautiful and healthy flowers. Most plants need a lot of sunlight to stay alive, but at the same time, there is nothing more autumnal than a room full of plants. These five species of plants are both aesthetic and equally strong, making them the perfect houseplants for Autumn/winter.

Oxalis triangularis

The Oxalis triangularis, also known as the Shamrock Plant is an ideal houseplant for the colder seasons. The reddish-purple, clover-shaped leaves thrive in mild temperatures and in medium or low exposure to light.

Sansevieria Trifasciata

The Sansevieria Trifasciata, better known as “The Snake Plant”, is a very popular plant when it comes to modern interiors. It’s a relatively easy plant to take care of and requires a very small amount of light in order to stay alive, making it the perfect plant for the upcoming season.


The bromeliad plant is a great plant for those who enjoy more of a tropical vibe, regardless of the season. Despite its bright colors, the Bromeliad thrives on low light, minimal watering and dry air, also making it an easy plant to take care of.

Zamioculcas zamiifolia

The “ZZ “Plant, (Zamioculcas zamiifolia) is the ultimate plant for those who don’t know a single thing about them. The Zamioculcas zamiifolia is one of the strongest plant species and can survive months of neglect without losing it’s beauty, making the colder and darker seasons a piece of cake.


Succulents are mostly seen as a summer plant but the will survive the winter if you put them in the right spot indoors and make sure to keep them away from a draft. New ones won’t grow as fast as the would in warmer seasons, but will be fine if they get at least three hours of sunlight a day. These type of plants are great to put around the house and can easily create an autumnal vibe.
