Updated: Aug 16, 2020


You've decorated your baby's nursery. Every frame is hung, every book is set, every pillow is placed. You have the stuffed animals strategically placed and the changing table is packed and ready. All you need is the final touch. For some, that's the baby. For others, it's the houseplant and then the baby.


I wanted to share with you the top plants that make the nursery. Maybe you want a jungle in the room or maybe just a simple tree would do. I am hoping that the following may inspire you to add some to the nursery. One plant completely changes the look of a room and several may even purify the room.

So, here are the Top 10 Houseplants for your Baby's Nursery in no particular order:


1. Fiddle Leaf Fig ( Ficus lyrata )


The Fiddle Leaf Fig makes a gorgeous and strong statement in any room. It can make a nursery pop with bold leaves of green. This is a plant that does well in bright, indirect sunlight where it doesn't have to move around a whole lot. Water on a regular schedule and otherwise forget about it. As it grows, it turns into a beautiful tree. One of my favorites!
