If you love nature, you’ll love keeping plants in your home. And you probably love this common trend; to place houseplants with large leaves in your home. Such plants not only make the perfect decoration pieces but also add more grace and livelihood to your home. 

6 Must-Have Houseplants with Large Leaves for 2022

You’ll find numerous options as many plants can be used as houseplants. However, one thing you’ll have to ensure is to keep houseplants with large leaves. That is to replicate a similar climate indoors as they are used to in nature. Most houseplants with large leaves like a bit moist air, misting your plants once or twice a week is a good option, especially in wintertime, as many turn on the heat, which makes the air fairly dry. 

Here are a few of the best houseplants with large leaves.

1. Monstera Deliciosa (Swiss Cheese Plant)

This exotic plant is found in tropical areas and has large, and split leaves. Monstera Deliciosa looks absolutely stunning indoors, immediately increasing the sophistication of your home. Please be mindful of providing them with the care they need if you want them to grow stronger. Please keep them in a place where they can catch at least a bit of indirect sunlight, so they’ll absorb its energy. Excessive sunlight can burn their leaves.

2. Philodendron Florida Ghost

This plant, when variegated, is quite rare, and thus super expensive. But the normal green one is much more common and available for decent prices. It gets its name from the way its leaves grow; they’re as white as a ghost when they spurt, eventually turning green as they mature. The Philodendron Florida Ghost is a pretty awesome plant, and keeping it in your house will make it look as serene as ever.

3. Alocasia Portadora (Elephant Ears)

This tropical houseplant is one of the largest in the Alocasia species, known for its insanely large-shaped arrow ears (also known as elephant ears). One thing you should know about them is they thrive in bright light. So, if you have a place in the house where they can catch at least some direct sunlight, it’ll be the perfect place. Many people in the tropics grow them in their gardens as it’s a hassle-free plant. One thing to note is that, after watering, the Alocasia leaks water from the edges of the leaves. Make sure not to place it close to wooden furniture or flooring.

4. Strelitzia Reginae (Bird of Paradise)

This plant makes an excellent indoor houseplant, and not because of its beautiful flowers. The leaves of this plant are very impressive, and with their grayish color, most wanted in modern decorations. It gets the name 'Bird of Paradise' because of its uncanny resemblance to the tropical bird of the same name. This plant is relatively easy to grow as it grows rapidly, and you don’t have to be on your toes to maintain it. The Strelitzia Reginae has no trunks as the large leaves shoot directly from the soil.

5. Anthurium Veitchii (King Anthurium)

If you want to grow this plant, you’ll have to have ample space in your home. In its natural habitat, this plant doesn’t grow on the ground but does so on trees. If you give it the optimal conditions, it’ll grow large leaves, measuring 4-6 feet long. It’s a rare plant but immediately makes your home look warmer if you grow them. You must provide ideal conditions for this plant if you want it to thrive, so make sure it's in a bright spot without direct sunlight, making sure the humidity of the air is high.
