Springtime brings new growth, but this doesn’t have to be just outdoors. Make your home bloom with greenery when you decorate with houseplants at The Modern DC. Whether you’re a pro at keeping plants alive or looking for something that’s low-maintenance, there’s a houseplant perfect for you.


Iron Plant

The Iron Plant, as the name suggests, is a survivor. It can handle low-light and minimal watering. Plus, it produces thick, dark green leaves that will look great in the corner of your living room or bedroom.


Snake Plant

These neat looking plants are perfect for adding a pop of color to any room. It can withstand low-light and will be just fine if you accidentally forget to water it occasionally. The best part about this houseplant is the added benefit of being an air purifier.


Spider Plant

This low-maintenance houseplant grows long, thin leaves that are great for hanging. If you’re a beginner when it comes to houseplants, this is most likely your best starter plant. They’re adaptable and require minimal care. Best of all, they self propagate so you can create more plants to decorate with.



These trendy plants will love sitting in your oversized window at The Modern DC. Choose from a wide variety of cacti and watch them grow into weird and fun shapes. Water once a week or when the soil is dry. Be carful with these plants, they tend to be prickly.


We hope you feel inspired to decorate with houseplants at The Modern DC. Be sure to use our “Away from Home” services. We’ll help you keep your houseplants thriving while you’re out of town.
