Things to Consider Before Buying a Corner Plant


Are you planning to buy plants for a corner of a room? Choosing plants to be kept in corners has to be made with an overall room décor in mind. Let's look at some basic principles that we should consider while buying plants for a corner of a room in India:

  • Space: The first question to answer is how big is the corner you wish to add the plants to. For example, a 2x2 feet space can easily accommodate large plants that can grow up to 6 to 8 feet tall (Yes, you read it right, you can grow a mini tree within your home). A 1x1 feet space should ideally be used to grow medium-sized plants (1 ft to 3 ft) like Aglaonema, Calathea or even Dieffenbachias. Smaller spaces should ideally have a wall-mounted stand with multiple small and tiny plants placed on it. Try to have plants smaller than 1 foot tall for the smaller spaces. Succulents are a great choice for such corners.

  • Light: While indoor plants can survive in low light conditions, it is good to estimate the amount of light that your corner receives before choosing the plants for the corner. Some plants like Peace Lilies require some sun to bloom healthy, while some plants like ZZ plants can tolerate extremely low light. Also, look at the distance between the corner and the window. Light tends to be lesser towards corners away from the windows.

  • Water: Do you travel often and cannot water your plants regularly? Plan for this before buying the plants. Some plants for corners require very little water while others need daily watering. You could also look at a double potting system for your plants to ensure they have self-watering capability.

  • Height: A general preference is to grow tall plants in the corners since they can fill up the vacant space and make your room look fuller. But it would be wise to predetermine the size you want and what your space allows.

  • Room: Lastly, a corner is not an isolated place but a part of your room. So it is best to choose plants that add to the overall décor of the room. Certain plants are more suited to living rooms than bedrooms, and the other way round too!



Benefits of Having Corner Plants


Health Benefits of Having Corner Plants: Bringing plants indoors, including corner plants, has multiple benefits, including better air quality, aesthetic appeal, and health benefits. Plants absorb carbon dioxide and release oxygen, purifying the air . Additionally, according to research, plants are proven to relieve stress and induce relaxation. Plus, plants generally encourage biophilia or connection to nature. Thus, every Greenkin corner room plant will keep you close to the nature dynamic world and offer a beautiful look to any living area.

Vastu Benefits of Having Corner Plants: Plants boost space energy, according to Vastu Shastra . They also stimulate growth and air purification. According to Vastu Shastra, placing indoor plants in the eastern, northeastern, or northeastern corner of your living or working place brings joy, happiness, and prosperity. Moreover, indoor plants for corners also help to harmonise the energy of the area, limit the impact of bad energies on the residents, and allow the room to be filled with an abundance of positive energy.


Placement Guide for Corner Plants


Styling a right corner with plants is a great idea to make your room come alive and add an overall positive vibe. Some tips for placing plants in the corner spot are:

  • Choosing a Plant that Matches Your Decor: The first step to styling a corner with plants is to look at your complete room and see what vibe your room currently has. For example, if your room has wooden furniture and has an overall earthy appeal, you can look at large palms that make for a more tropical feel. Whereas if your room has more modern furniture, you might want to add a Rubber plant or a Fiddle leaf Fig , that goes well with a modern look.

  • Finding the Right Plant Size: Once you know your room's current vibe, you need to make an important decision - how large do you want your plants to be? Some people love keeping a large (6 to 8 feet tall) plant in the corner, while others prefer to keep medium-sized (1 to 3 feet tall) plants on stools or planter stands. In case you want to go ahead with a medium-sized plant, you should consider buying a stand for placing the planter. Find the perfect stand for your planter that goes well with the rest of your furniture.

  • Choosing Your Green Partners: Once you have narrowed down on the size of the plant, the next step is to choose a plant that you personally like, because ultimately, you are adding a plant to your life.

  • The Finishing Touches: Post getting the plant, you just need a few final touches, like add a painting or two on the wall by the side of the plant. And that's it, you are done! You now have a perfect living corner that goes well with your room.

  • Considerations For Corners That Are Not Well-Lit: My room has very low light. Will my plants survive in a corner? Yes, you can choose from a variety of plants that can do well in low light conditions, as long as you have a window in the room. You can choose from Snake Plant , English Ivy, ZZ Plant, Ficus, Syngonium or even succulents (on a shelf).



Must-Have Corner Plants


While there are many plants that you can buy for your perfect corner, your choice depends on the size of the plant that you wish to grow. Let's get going on the list, starting with the most common plant for corners, the Rubber Plant:

  • Rubber Plant: Large Waxy Leaves on a straight upright stem adding burgundy colour to your room, a rubber plant is a default choice for plants for corners in India. Rubber plants come in multiple variants, and grow by about 2 to 3 feet every year. They can be trimmed to make a bushy version for the more spacious corners.

  • Palms: There are many varieties of Palms that can grow well in medium indirect light. Chamaedorea and Areca Palms are the more common Palm varieties that can add an instant tropical vibe to your room. Chamaedorea is a very hardy plant that purifies and humidifies indoor air.

  • Dracaena: There are many varieties of Dracaena that can be added to a corner. They do well in low light conditions. They need to be watered regularly and grow up to 6 feet tall when kept indoors. They can tolerate some neglect in India since they grow really well in the Indian climate.

  • Ti Plant: Cordyline Terminalis, commonly known as Mahatma or Ti Plant. This fast-growing plant can reach up to 10 feet in height. Owing to its large leaves on a slender upright stem, it is a great fit for every corner. Just like rubber plants, Cordyline Terminalis adds a great burgundy colour to your room.

  • Schefflera: Commonly known as Umbrella Plant, Schefflera are a great fit for a spacious corner. We recommend at least a 1.5 feet by 1.5 ft space for a tall schefflera plant, since it can grow up to 10 feet tall indoors. They add a great pattern of leaves to your corner and often become a topic of discussion in social gatherings. Also, they are fast growers adding about 3 feet per year.

  • Philodendron Plants: Philodendrons are excellent house plants, and there are many varieties that can brighten up your corner. You can find large-leaf philodendrons, climbing philodendrons, bright neon philodendrons and many other varieties. They can add a great texture to the corner and so are an obvious corner plant that you should look at.

  • Fiddle Leaf Fig: As the name suggests, these are fig plants, and can grow really tall. They have become a much-loved plant across the world for indoor décor. Note that they like bright indirect light and can tolerate some bit of sun. So keep them closer to the window.

  • Snake Plant: Talking about plants for corners, how can we not mention the hardiest plant of them all - Snake Plant. You can get a wide variety of Snake Plants that can be a direct addition to your corner. They add a great texture and are absolutely non-intrusive. If you are not sure which plant to buy for that corner, you are probably looking at buying a snake plant.

  • Dieffenbachia: Known comoonly as "Dumb Canes", they give you large leaves with green and white colors. Their hardiness (low light tolerance) makes them a great plant for corners. Remember that they need regular watering, and grow easily from cuttings.

  • Syngoniums: Syngoniums are very hardy plants and can be added to corners with medium light. Since they do not grow very tall, it is best to place them on top of planter stands. You can club a few different types of Syngoniums in the same pot and place them in the corner to add a multi-colored and bushy accent.

  • Spider Plant: Just like Syngoniums, Spider plants should be kept on planter stands. They can also be hung from the ceiling. They produce multiple plantlets which hang on long stocks that tend to grow downwards, hence elevating the spider plants is a good idea. Spider plants are known for their resilience and are good to set up in the corners.

  • Calathea: Calatheas are recognized globally as great indoor plants, and can be placed in corners since they can tolerate low light conditions. They are a great addition to Indian homes because they love tropical weather. Calatheas don't grow very tall, and so are ideally placed on stools or stands.

How to Care for Corner Plants


Consider the corner area and common issues (like low light, humidity, draining issues, etc.) while caring for corner plants. Some of the following care guidelines for corner plants are mentioned below.

What to Adopt:

  • To ensure your plant is healthy, examine its light, water, and humidity needs before choosing and placing.

  • Most corner plants prefer indirect, bright light. However, if you have a dark location, choose low-light plants. Plants develop with light, but without it, they may become leggy.

  • Rotate your corner plants to prevent leaning towards the light source and maintain even growth. Rotate them every 2–3 days. Along with providing them with adequate fertilisers and water, this is equally important.

  • Water your corner plants properly. Follow their water content criteria. Let the soil dry out between waterings for most plants, but it varies by plant.

  • Most indoor plants thrive at 70-80 F during the day and 65-70 F at night. Thus, keep plants away from drafts, vents, and radiators to avoid temperature swings.

  • Tropical plants need the appropriate humidity. Clustering corner plants, using a humidifier, or placing a tray of water near them can achieve such conditions.

  • Use a liquid, well-balanced fertiliser (monthly or every 90 days—based on plant species requirements) to feed your plants during the growing season. During their winter dormancy, avoid fertiliser application.

  • Inspect your corner plants regularly for stress signs like yellowing foliage, drooping, or pests. Such issues must be addressed immediately to avoid further damage.

  • Maintain cleanliness. Dust blocks sunlight from reaching the corner plant's energy factories—its leaves. To avoid dust and pests, wipe your plants' leaves with a damp cloth or sponge.


What to avoid:

  • Overwatering plants is a major mistake. Many think giving corner plants lots of water will help. That's absolutely false. It causes root rot and other issues.

  • Avoid direct sunlight (from the window) to corner plants that can scorch fragile leaves, therefore shield them with a curtain or keep them away from the sun.

  • Avoid overcrowding the corner plants. Give corner plants enough space for airflow. If they don't, humidity might rise, which helps plant diseases develop.

  • Neglecting to repot is another common mistake. Failure to reform can lead to rootbound corner plants, which require regular repotting into larger pots.
