7 Beautiful indoor plants to grow in water

Indoor plants that grow in water are different from aquatic or aquatic plants.  It’s important to understand the difference.

Indoor plants that grow in water are those that grow naturally in soil. However, some of these plants can also grow successfully in water; some require less TLC than others (more on this later in this article).

On the other hand, aquatic plants are plants that are adapted to live in water. Either emerge, submerge or float. They provide oxygen, shelter and food for fish and wildlife.

This blog post focuses on indoor plants that grow in water.

Peace Lily

Beautiful and relatively easy to care for, peace lilies are also one of the best plants to grow in water without soil. It’s a tropical plant that makes a great addition to your houseplant collection, especially when placed in an elegant glass jar.

The base of the plant should hang above the waterline. You can use pebbles or glass stones to make sure your peace lily’s roots are the only ones that are submerged. You want to prevent the leaves and their bases from getting wet too often to avoid rot.

Fiddle Leaf Fig

With large, violin-shaped leaves, fiddle leaf figs are another incredible houseplant. Growing this plant in water is very easy since she usually thrives in moist and warm conditions.

After only four weeks of propagating in water, you will notice roots appearing at the base of the stem of the cuttings. Then, in a few more weeks, the roots will grow in the water. Soon you’ll have plenty of fiddle leaf figs to share with your friends and even sell for a good price.

If you don’t have any luck with fiddle leaf figs (I know, those are really pretty plants! 🤐), then you can always opt for artificial ones
