Indoor Plant Styling

12 Dec, 2023

Whether you’re new to the indoor plant game or you’ve already got an extensive collection, summer is your time to get growing. Sunny days, public holidays and plenty of time to notice the new growth sprouting for your houseplants!

With the warmer weather finally here, summer brings lazy days at home, more time with friends and family, and the opportunity for a revamp of your indoor space. Take some time out to assess where you want to make design changes, and which new indoor plants you can welcome into your home. Our summer indoor plant guide has some care tips for the sunny season, plus everything you need to know for styling success.


As temperatures rise, your plants will be thirstier than usual. Keep an eye on moisture levels in the soil, making sure your plants are kept evenly moist. Familiarise yourself with the specific watering needs of your plant before setting your summer watering schedule.

Most houseplants love a liquid feed every three to four weeks through the summer months. We recommend Kings Houseplant Food for lush foliage houseplants, and a liquid orchid fertiliser with higher potassium for flowering plants.

Styling Success Secrets

Elevate your plants' presence in your living space with our styling tips:

Mix and Match Foliage

Styling is all about experimenting with different textures and colours. Choose plants with foliage that have contrasting textures. For example, we love the delicate fronds of a maidenhair fern paired with the large, glossy leaves of a rubber plant. The contrast is not only aesthetically pleasing, but it also showcases the unique nature of each plant.

Vertical Interest

With their cascading vines and lush foliage, trailing plants bring an elegant vibe to your styling. They are perfect for small spaces, adding vertical interest without taking up precious floor space. Hanging from decorative planters or high shelves, trailing plants like pothos or string of pearls will give a carefully curated feel to your home.

The Art of Plant Pairing

Grouping plants is a design technique that elevates your indoor space to a new level of style and cohesion. Clusters of plants look fantastic on stylish shelving, and can transform even the most boring corners. We love the look of a tall and dramatic fiddle leaf fig, with the glossy foliage of a monstera and the unique style of a ZZ Plant.

Make a Statement

Statement plants, such as bird of paradise or large monstera, shine on their own. Whether standing tall in a corner, or filling in a spacious room, statement plants contribute an intentional sense of style to your living space.


Feel like trying something a little different with your houseplants? Why not give LECA a try! LECA, short for lightweight expanded clay aggregate, creates a fantastic growing environment for your houseplants. These little clay balls can absorb and slowly release water, and can be used in the place of houseplant mix. Plus, they're fantastic for preventing root rot and keeping those pesky pests at bay. Since LECA doesn't pack much in the way of nutrients, regular feeding with a liquid fertiliser is essential.
