These Are the Best Indoor Plants for Your Star Sign
Taurus (21 April to 21 May)Your perfect plant match: Mature umbrella tree
Taureans are lovers of all of life's luxuries, making the remarkable mature umbrella tree a perfect addition to their (probably gilded, marbled and cashmere-clad) home. Tricky to source (especially at size), and fairly expensive, this plant adds both practical air-cleansing greenery and lush beauty too.
Gemini (22 May to 21 June)Your perfect plant match: Air plant
Known for their many zodiac-gifted dualities, the twin Gemini and their matching pick air plants have a lot in common. Both are adaptable and ambitious and can have two sides to them. (In the air plant's case that's conflicting tendencies to be both easy and tricky to look after at different times.)
Cancer (22 June to 22 July)Your perfect plant pairing: Alocasia aka Elephant Ear
Sensitive Cancerians are sure to appreciate the delicate nature of an Elephant Ear. Just like them, they need lots of love, care, and attention and wither when left without. One of the more difficult plants to nurture, their needs are specific and evolving—strong intuition is key to keeping them healthy.
Leo (23 July to 22 August)Your perfect plant match: variegated Monstera Deliciosa var. Borsigiana
As the designated show-off of the zodiac, Leos are drawn to rare and exceptionally beautiful varieties that catch the eye. This unique plant's white-speckled variegated foliage is spectacularly hard to find, making it an obvious choice. (Collecting all sorts of conversation-starters is right up your alley.)
Virgo (23 August to 23 September)Your perfect plant match: Bonsai Kyoto Serissa
Virgos have a perfectionist streak that lends itself well to the practice of cultivating tiny, faultless bonsai trees. Your knack for nurturing, balanced by a love for achievement (bonsai ain't easy), makes this pick a natural fit. The uncommon Kyoto Serissa is native to, duh, Kyoto, making it even more special.
Libra (24 September to 23 October)Your perfect plant match: Syngonium neon
A lover of beauty, your intrinsic appreciation for anything pretty draws you straight to the blush-tinted leaves of the arrowhead plant. Because Librans are the most balanced of all the signs (see: the scales) they can understand this plant's need for the perfect harmony between bright light and shade.
Scorpio (24 October to 22 November)Your perfect plant match: Mature fiddle leaf fig
Like you, your greenery pairing is independent (fiddle's don't need much fussing over), impressive (see picture below), and ambitious (hitting the highest of heights, always). Where a bewitching Scorpio's presence is keenly felt whenever they're near, the mature fiddle takes up space in any room it's placed in.
Sagittarius (23 November to 21 December)Your perfect plant match: Copper Birds Nest Philodendron
This sign is known to be low-maintenance, earthy and drama-free—just like the lush Philodendron. In this newer varietal, autumn-toned leaves turn dark green as they mature, mimicking your ability to thrive and evolve without fuss. Growth is slow and steady making it well suited to your impatient nature.
Capricorn (22 December to 20 January)Your perfect plant match: Chinese money plant
Industrious Capricorn is all about the money-manifesting vibes of the Chinese money plant. Like you, this guy also shows signs of stoicism when necessary, plugging along without too much of a worry. (But if he does take a downward turn your innate persistence is sure to get it back on track.)
Aquarius (21 January to 19 February)Your perfect plant partner: Pothos
If we could name one plant as aloof as an Aquarius, it must be Pothos. This beautiful plant is independent, winding it's way wherever it pleases, whether it's been staked or not. (Sound familiar?) It's also loyal and does its best to overcome poor friendship on the part of its owner.
Pisces (20 February to 20 March)Your perfect plant partner: ZZ plant
You might associate this sign with being overly sensitive but the ZZ plant makes for a very forgiving and tolerant plant child. Where the real similarities come into play is in the parallels between Pisces' and ZZ's propensity for forgiveness. Forget to water your plants a lot? This guy is for you.
Aries (21 March to 20 April)
Your perfect plant match: Maidenhead fern
Maidenhead ferns have been called "finicky plant divas" and boy does that description suit a typical Aries. Picky, impatient and undeniably beautiful, they know what they want, when they want it and how they want it. And you? If you're careful to pay attention you'll be rewarded with delicate, lacy foliage.
