• Buy Indoor Plants • Buy Plant Containers
You can never have too many houseplants—but which one should you add to your collection next? It might be written in the stars! Find your zodiac sign below and see which plant is the best fit based on your astrological sign.
Aries (March 21 - April 19)
The best houseplant for your zodiac sign is maidenhair fern.
Like fiery Aries, maidenhair ferns somehow pull off looking a little wild and yet completely in-control with their stunning fronds. They also share a temperamental streak with folks under this sign—maidenhairs are very strict about keeping moist soil and humid air. (And if they don’t get it, they won’t be shy about letting you know!)
Taurus (April 20 - May 19)
The best houseplant for your zodiac sign is ZZ Plant.
Tauruses are creatures of habit; all they need is a comfy spot to lay down and the occasional snack, and they’re happy to watch the world go by. ZZ plants share this laid-back nature; as some of the best indoor plants for shade, they’re comfortable in most environments and only need the occasional watering to remain content.
Gemini (May 20 - June 20)
The best houseplant for your zodiac sign is the wanderer.
Gemini, the “twins,” have an unfair reputation for having two personalities—in fact, they’re just attuned to seeing both sides of any coin, leading them to occasionally disagree with themselves! The wanderer, also known as tradescantia, reflects this duality with its dual-toned leaves; variegated green on one side, shimmering purple on the other.
Cancer (June 21 - July 21)
The best houseplant for your zodiac sign is peace lily.
Cancers often take the role of “therapist” in their friend groups; they’re naturally inclined to take on the problems of others, occasionally forgetting about their own needs. The peace lily shares this trait, not only due to its namesake but also thanks to its incredible ability to filter toxic chemicals from the air. Just make sure to give your peace lily an occasional watering; it doesn’t ask for much, but it will eventually start to wilt if neglected.
Leo (July 22 - August 21)
The best houseplant for your zodiac sign is bird of paradise.
“Lion” signs are famous for their big personalities, beauty, and appreciation for life’s finer things. Bird of paradise might just be their perfect match with its extravagant foliage and fascinating flowers. This bold plant exudes creativity and passion, just like its zodiac counterpart!
Virgo (August 22 - September 21)
The best houseplant for your zodiac sign is aglaonema.
Virgos pride themselves on being useful to others and hyper-aware of their surroundings. The aglaonema is similar as it’s an all-purpose indoor plant that truly fits in anywhere. Requiring very little maintenance or light, aglaonemas will adapt to pretty much any environment and happily absorb unpleasant chemicals out of the air.
Libra (September 22 - October 22)
The best houseplant for your zodiac sign is monstera deliciosa.
Everyone loves coming over to a Libra’s house; their sense of aesthetics is always next-level! What most people don’t know, however, is a reason behind this seemingly innate talent is Libra’s tendency to think outside the box and let their imagination run free. Monstera deliciosa, with its whimsical split leaves that unfurl prolifically from its stems, matches that energy to a tee.
Scorpio (October 23 - November 21)
The best houseplant for your zodiac sign is ficus decora.
Some call Scorpio brooding, but those that truly know them see them for who they are; introspective, thoughtful, and hyper-rational. Ficus decora’s thick, dark, glossy leaves are reminiscent of the leather jackets Scorpios tend to live in. While they may look intense, they’re actually just strong silent types who are refreshingly independent.
Sagittarius (November 22 - December 20)
The best houseplant for your zodiac sign is fiddle leaf fig.
There’s no mistaking when a Sagittarius is around! The life of any party, they’re friendly, ambitious, and surprisingly blunt. The fiddle leaf fig’s dramatic stature and massive leaves make a similar impression. Just like the tell-it-like-it-is Sag, they’ll also be straight-up with you if the way they’re being taken care of isn’t doing it for them.
Capricorn (December 21 - January 19)
The best houseplant for your zodiac sign is snake plant.
Capricorns are extremely duty-driven; they’re the ones most likely to be the designated driver or stop by with some hot soup when you’re under the weather. Snake plants are reliable in all the same endearing ways; they’ll stand at attention under just about any circumstances. They’re quick to forgive if you forget to water or keep them in a dimmer area; as long as you’re happy, they’re happy.
Aquarius (January 20 - February 18)
The best houseplant for your zodiac sign is kentia palm.
It’s a common misconception that Aquarius are water signs (the name is a bit misleading). In fact, they’re air signs that some might describe as having their head in the clouds. In reality, they’re just prone to deep thought, contemplating abstract ideas, and unapologetically standing out. The kentia palm, with its majestic wing-like fronds, is a perfect match for these whimsical souls.
Pisces (February 19 - March 20)
The best houseplant for your zodiac sign is ponytail palm.
Last on the zodiac calendar is Pisces, the born romantic. This water sign is drawn to fantastical ideas, heart-pounding adventures, and deep connections. And yet, on the other side of the coin, they have a practical side that makes them a stable presence to their loved ones. The ponytail palm’s sturdy succulent stem and tumbling fountain-like foliage beautifully mimic the Piscean personality.
