(Image Above:

As winter sets in, you might be thinking about sprucing your house up a bit. A spruce, however, is probably not the best option when looking to green up your home. So, this top ten is here to plant some fresh indoor gardening ideas in your head!

10. Angel Wing BegoniaGreat for practicing bad pick up lines: “Did it hurt?” “Did what hurt?” “When you fell out of heaven?”

9. Cactus. A hardy plant like this will never desert you.

8. Audrey IILively and entertaining, but watch out if you’re dating a guy named Seymour.

7. OrchidIt’s just plain purdy.

6. BasilAn all around great, useful plant. Never a ‘pest-o’ to take care of.

5. Whomping WillowAsk Potter if a plant like this needs to be potted.

4. Bleeding Heart. So pretty that it makes my ventricles hurt.

3. Viola TricolorMight play classical music in addition to looking nice.

2. Aloe VeraPerfect for anyone who’s burning with desire for a houseplant.

1. Money Tree. Someone should invent a real version of this. The current money trees are just posers.

What plants do you keep in your home?

About Hannah

"Q: Where do cantaloupes go for the summer? A: John Cougar Mellon Camp!" From that joke you can surmise a few things about Hannah -- she loves a good pun, she delights in irreverence, and red peppers are her vegetable of choice. How does one figure out Hannah loves red peppers from that joke? Hmm, that's top secret. Hannah also adores outdoor activities, arts & crafts, reading, and being abroad.

    The bleeding hearts are so beautiful, I have never seen this plant before and I would love to have them in my home.
