If you don’t want a real Christmas tree in the house. Cause, yeah, all those needles don’t clean themselves up. Then there are good alternatives when it comes to houseplants. How about the Kamerden, for example? Or a less traditional alternative such as the Ficus Lyrata?
This houseplant not only looks like a mini Christmas tree, its branches even have exactly the same shape. Ideal if you would like to decorate your alternative to the Christmas tree!
Most conifers are not suitable as houseplants, but the Kamerden is. Araucaria heterophylla, as it is officially called, prefers to get a sip of water indirectly and on a regular basis.
The Fiddle leaf plant, or Ficus Lyrata, is a perfect alternative to the Christmas tree. The leaf of the plant is large and grows fairly horizontally. Just like a Christmas tree!
You could, if you dare, wrap a light cord around the trunk. Make sure you don’t damage the leaf.
The Kentia palm is also a nice alternative to a Christmas tree. Each plant grows in its own direction, of course, but the Kentia is actually always nice and full. The shape of the plant might not be the same, but the plant could function as a Christmas tree.
Like the Kentia palm, the Banana plant has no shape like a Christmas tree. Still, the Banana plant is a nice alternative. Christmas lights are draped around the pot, and you’re ready for Christmas!
Whatever the Kentia palm can do, the Areca palm can too. The plant is not called Gold Palm for nothing! The leaves colour in sunlight just as beautifully as a string of lights. An Areca palm is fuller than the Kentia, but has less strong leaves. Real decoration is therefore better left in place!
