7 Top Houseplants to Replace the Christmas Tree

These top 7 houseplants to replace the Christmas tree will all fill the space nicely where your Christmas tree once stood. When we take down the Christmas decorations, it can seem like the room feels bare, so if you'd still like the space filled with greenery, these plants will do just that for you. 

Top 7 Houseplants After Christmas

  1. Fiddle leaf (Ficus Lyrata): a well known and loved plant that is easy to look after, despite its reputation, with just a few hints and tips. Smaller plants can be purchased or taller ones to fill a space, and they will need to be kept away from drafts in a room with lots of light and kept moderately moist. 

  2. Snake plant (Sansevieria): one of the easiest houseplants to care for that will fill a Christmas tree space with ease. It's the best for easy care with minimal watering requirements and not being fussy about light conditions. 

  3. Dragon tree (Dracaena marginata): needing a bright spot and moist compost, but equally, you might find lower light levels suit it well and watering as and when might work too! This one can last for many, many years, so it's worth putting in the place of your Christmas tree.n 

  4. Weeping fig (Ficus benjamin): bright, indirect light and regular watering will keep this growing fast and looking pristine. Less water during the winter months will help, and your weeping fig will thank you for it. 

  5. Bird of Paradise (Strelitzia): another plant that will gracefully fill a Christmas tree spot. The Bird of Paradise doesn't need much attention if standing in bright light, without drafts and some humidity. You might have to wait a few years until it flowers, but when it does, it will be well worth the wait! 

  6. Swiss cheese plant (Monstera deliciosa): the on-trend plant of the last few years will fill your Christmas tree spot with ease. Give it plenty of bright but not direct light and water every 1 to 2 weeks. Don't forget to dust the leaves to keep them looking shiny gently. 

  7. African Milk Tree (Euphorbia trigona): minor water requirements and light to low light levels will see this plant well and growing for years.
