It’s no surprise that Ivy makes our top ten list of indoor wall plants. With their vine-like stems and attractive foliage, they make a beautiful relaxed natural statement on your Interior walls. 

Devils Ivy is no exception. Alongside their natural cascading visuals, Ivy is very forgiving of newbie plant parents. Devil's Ivy gets its common name from being virtually impossible to kill!  

Its heart-shaped dark green foliage will stay intense and glossy even if it’s kept in the dark, so it’s perfect for low-light areas such as basements or bathrooms. 

This plant gets its common (non-Latin) name from the fact that it’s practically impossible to kill. Devil’s Ivy is an evergreen vine and stays green even when kept in the dark.

We love to pair it with our Salt Pot to make its color pop. 

2. Lipstick Plant

The best indoor wall plants will create a dramatic flourish of beautiful flowers and lush foliage without taking up valuable floor space. 

This is why we love the lipstick plant with its striking tubular-shaped flowers that elegantly emerge from a slightly darker case exactly like lipstick. 

It can grow up to 70 cm in length so is perfect for a mini wall statement or in more confined areas. Its rich glossy green leaves take over once the flowers have subsided. 

3. Preserved Moss

Living walls are in style currently and provide a wonderful nature boost inside homes and commercial spaces. 

Not only do they look completely stunning on a wall, but they also do double duty as an acoustic solution. 

Although a considerable investment in terms of time and money, we just had to include preserved moss on our top ten list of indoor wall plants. 

These amazing features can live for a staggering 25 years if given the correct environment but do need regular maintenance, fertilizer, and access to either natural light or artificial grow lights 

4. Boston Fern

The delicate lace-like fronds of Boston Ferns are very well known and make a beautiful hanging arrangement draping elegantly on walls. 

They do best when hung lower on a wall rather than near the ceiling as they prefer a regular airflow to look and feel their best! 

Not only do they give a minimal splash of green to your interior walls but they purify the air and are also completely safe for pet parents. 

5. Chenille Plant

This stylish minimal cactus is easy to care for and provides a neat restrained display for your indoor wall areas. 

Similar to Tillandsia, in its native environment, it grows by attaching itself to another species. but in the case of mistletoe cactus, rotting leaves, and moss. 

A cute little extra is that the berries it produces can be eaten and taste like grapes! It also produces clusters of teeny flowers during the growing season. 

It can grow up to 20 ft long in its natural habitat but as they grow fairly slowly, you won’t need to tackle its length in a hurry. Unlike most cacti, it doesn’t particularly like direct sunlight. 

8. Morning Glory

This show-stopping indoor wall plant has leaves with wavy edges which resemble zig zags and is often known as the ‘zigzag plant’. 

It provides a dramatic cascade with its pretty scented white flowers and other edible fruit similar to the mistletoe cactus but taste like gooseberries! 

It grows to a sensible 30cm in length and as it hails from rainforest regions, it will thrive best in the shade away from direct sunlight. 

To enjoy fishbone cactus at its best, feed it with a cactus fertilizer every two weeks during the growing season and keep the soil moist in winter.
