Aries (March 21- April 19): For the Aries, the perfect houseplant is the spider plant. This hardy, low-maintenance plant is ideal for the Aries, who love to be in control. Spider plants thrive in bright, indirect sunlight, while they can be watered as often as weekly – or as little as every two weeks – to keep them in good health. The Aries will love the plant’s ability to adapt to different levels of light and water, making it an ideal houseplant for those who may not have the same level of plant care expertise as the Aries.
Taurus (April 20 - May 20): If you're a Taurus, you naturally have a green thumb when caring for houseplants. You'll thrive when searching for the perfect houseplant to fit your home, though it can be tricky to narrow down choices. Plants that are easy to care for, such as ferns and peace lilies, are ideal for a Taurus. You'll also be able to go the extra mile in caring for more delicate houseplants like orchids and succulents. With your knack for zoning in on detail and a solid commitment to caring, you'll easily be able to find the perfect houseplant for your home that fits your zodiac.
Gemini (May 21- June 20): Made up of the Twins, Geminis are known for being compassionate, intellectual individuals. Regarding houseplants, Geminis should look for a plant that reflects their versatile and adaptable nature. A lucky bamboo is an excellent option; it is hardy, easy to care for, and low maintenance. It also has some spiritual significance, making it an excellent choice for Geminis who want their houseplants to double as an accessory with deeper meaning. However, if the Gemini prefers a more vibrant and colorful houseplant, they should consider an air plant or a geranium. Both require similar care, such as plenty of light, airflow, and occasional misting. Whichever houseplant you choose, research proper care instructions and create a routine tailored to your zodiac sign.
Cancer (June 21 - July 22): Those born under the Cancer zodiac sign appreciate plants that will thrive in their home environment. When selecting houseplants, consider plants that require low maintenance, such as ferns, ivy, and snake plants. Caring for plants comes naturally to Cancers, so they’ll enjoy the ritual of taking care of their plants. Though their natural nurturing instinct also applies to their houseplants, Cancers should be careful not to become overbearing with their plant care.
Leo (July 23 - August 22): Leos typically enjoy the spotlight, which means that their houseplants should be just as eye-catching. Accenting and highlighting the best features of their home, Leo houseplants should have vibrant colors and interesting foliage. Also, Leos love to be the center of attention, so easy-care houseplants like orchids, air plants, and succulents are a great choice. With a little love and care, these plants will put on a show for the Leo sun sign and provide the attention they crave.
Virgo (August 23 - September 22): Virgos are often known for their detail-oriented nature, so those born under this sign should opt for low-maintenance houseplants that don't require a lot of attention. Succulents, for example, are ideal plants for Virgo as these plants are hardy and can tolerate a wide range of environments - perfect for the forgetful types. Plant care for Virgos should also include weekly dusting, as these particular zodiacs thrive in clean, organized environments.
Libra (September 23 - October 22): Libra's is all about balance, both in their lives and in their spaces. When selecting a houseplant, Libra will want to find something that can provide a pleasant atmosphere and remind them to maintain balance even when cultivating their plant's care. A few ideal houseplants for Libra include Philodendron, Spanish Moss, and Peace Lily. These plants thrive with relatively low maintenance, providing a sense of harmony in the home. If Libra can spare some extra time, they can try their hand at a more challenging but rewarding houseplant like an Orchid or a Ficus Elastica. No matter which plants they choose, Libra will feel the calming vibes from caring for their houseplant.
Scorpio (October 23 - November 21): Scorpios are resourceful and passionate, and they need a houseplant that will channel these qualities. Consider a Sansevieria, which is known for being an easy plant to care for. This plant can survive without much sunlight or water, making it perfect for Scorpios who may not have the time for intense plant care. Additionally, Sansevierias are known for their detoxifying properties, making them a great choice for Scorpios looking for an air-cleansing addition to their home.
Sagittarius (November 22 - December 21): Those born under Sagittarius can be carefree, adventurous, and humorous. When selecting a houseplant, they should seek something that can complement their energy. A great option is a Calathea Plant, with its bright colors and easy-care requirements. Calatheas are low-maintenance plants that require indirect sun, making them ideal for the Sagittarius, who doesn't want to fuss with too much plant care. Those born under this zodiac sign should also consider a Fiddle Leaf Fig or a Chinese Money Plant, both known for their adaptability and easy-care qualities. With the right houseplant, Sagittarius will have a beautiful and easy-care companion to bring a bit of humor and adventure to their home.
Capricorn (December 22 - January 19): Capricorns are known for their dedication, discipline, and ambition, and this same level of care should be given to choosing and caring for houseplants. These practical and ambitious signs should look for low-maintenance and practical plants, such as jade plants, snake plants, and rubber plants, as houseplants that need a bit of sunlight and water to thrive and should fit perfectly into their lifestyle. With the proper plant care and dedication, a Capricorn should have no difficulty finding success in its houseplant-owning endeavors.
Aquarius (January 20 - February 18): This zodiac sign tends to be creative, independent, and original. They are often attracted to houseplants that are unique and attention-grabbing. If you are an Aquarius, you may want to consider houseplants such as the colorful Calathea zebrina, the unusual Alocasia Amazonica, or the iconic Monstera deliciosa. All these plants require some degree of plant care—Aquarians would do well to remember that their plants need regular watering and occasional fertilizer for optimal growth. With a little bit of love and care, any of these houseplants would make a great addition to an Aquarius home.
Pisces (February 19 - March 20): Pisces thrive in a cozy living space filled with plants that are easy to care for and provide comfort. When picking a houseplant for a Pisces, look for varieties that need minimal maintenance and bring a sense of calm. Good houseplants for Pisces include succulents, ferns, jade, and rubber plants. Some Pisces may also find cacti's resilience inspiring and beauty in the many shapes of these low-maintenance plants. No matter what type of houseplant you select for your Pisces, ensure they are comfortable with the required care, as Pisces can quickly become overwhelmed with complicated plant care.
