Which House Plant?

Which House Plant?

At Waverly and Reed we are a big fan of house plants to add a bit of greenery to your house, not to mention get the position health benefits that plants offer. What we are not a fan of however, is how frequently they die on us! After much (and I mean much) trial and error, we have put together a list of our favourite easy to look after house plants. So have a read and do get in touch with us at social@wrhome.co.uk with your thoughts! ​


Aloe Vera

Aloe vera is probably the number one vote when a consensus was taken from the Waverly and Reed team.

Succulents retain water in arid climates which makes them a perfect interior choice even if you are constantly forgetting to water your plants!



This little spiky wonder is a small succulent commonly seen in Cape Town that is happy to live with very littlelight and requires only a little water. The plant stays small so it's perfect for window sills, bookshelves, and desks.


Snake Plant

Hailing from Africa this beautiful can grow taller than the other Waverly and Reed recommendations, but again is perfect for interiors as it doesn't need much light nor much water to survive and thrive.




Yet another one perfect for interiors, this is has a waxy finish to its beautiful green leaves.




Money Tree

Money Trees are a generally coming from the Americas and can be identified by their skinny trunks and twisted trunks. Money trees do well under fluorescent lighting so they are a great plant for businesses or other interiors spacess.
