6. Fruit Trees that don't fruit.

The tree's leaves and flowers also make beautiful decorations for your home or office at this time of year.

Our picks, the famous Monstera Deliciosa, Fiddle Leaf Fig, Olive tree or even an orange tree.

7. Get Creative with placement.

Consider throwing some plants on a indoor ladder or even a bar cart. Strategically place them to bring nature indoors and also add pops of natural colours.

8. Glass Terrariums or Small Houseplants

A glass terrarium is a miniature ecosystem that's enclosed in glass or plastic. It usually has a lid to keep air circulating inside the enclosure, but there is no drainage hole in the bottom of the container.These glass containers are available in many different shapes including spheres, cones and pyramids that can add a special dimension to your indoors.
