8 Plants Your Airbnb Guests Will Love

Indoor Plants to Elevate Your Airbnb’s Décor

Indoor plants enhance the overall appearance of a space, but they also increase your mood and creativity, while reducing stress and air pollutants. 

So, they don’t just look good, they can make us feel good, too. We recommend including plants in the décor of your Airbnb so your guests can reap the benefits. 

Below are eight low maintenance plants that are perfect for rental spaces. 

8 Plants Your Airbnb Guests Will Love
Adding plants to any area will add life to the room! 

1. ZZ Plant 

The ZZ plant is perfect for an Airbnb as it’s tolerant to a range of conditions. If you forget about it for a while or perhaps have a long stay guest, it won’t throw a fit while it waits to be watered.  ZZ Plants are good in low light, and low humidity. And you can simply water them only when the soil feels very dry.  

Care Tips:  
  • Light: thrives in medium to low indirect light. Not suited for intense, direct sun. 
  • Water: ideally every 2 weeks. 
  • Air cleaner: removes toxins from the air. 

2. Snake Plant 

Another low maintenance plant is the snake plant. They grow very tall over time, so are perfect for narrow space. They are also excellent at air-purifying and only need to be watered once every week or two and do very well in shady spots.  

Care Tips: 
  • Light: thrives in medium to bright indirect light but can tolerate low indirect light. 
  • Water: every 2 weeks. 
  • Air cleaner: removes toxins from the air 

3. Monstera Deliciosa 

If you’re looking for a statement plant, you’ll want the monstera deliciosa. This plant is happiest in a bright spot with plenty of space to grow its large leaves. But, if necessary, this plant will adapt to a variety of indoor conditions.  The monstera will also tolerate the occasional missed watering. 

Care Tips: 
  • Light: thrives in bright to medium indirect light. Not suited for intense, direct sun. 
  • Water: about every 1- 2 weeks. 
  • Air cleaner: removes toxins from the air.

4. Neon Pothos 

A pothos is a great addition to a space, with long vines that can trail from a shelf, bookcase or hanging basket. Water when the top two or three inches of soil are dry, usually once every week or two. They’re great for an Airbnb because they won’t mind if you miss a watering. A pothos will be happy in low light, so it’s very easy to take care of.  

Care Tips 
  • Light: thrives in medium to low indirect light, but not suited for intense, direct sun. 
  • Water: once per week. 
  • Air cleaner: removes all indoor air toxins. 

5. Rubber Plant 

A rubber tree is a great alternative to the fussy fiddle leaf fig tree. Rubber plants can grow impressively large or kept medium-sized with pruning. They’re also great for making a striking entrance for your Airbnb. If the broad leaves get a little, dusty simply wipe down with a soft wet cloth. 

Care Tips: 
  • Light: thrives in medium to bright indirect light. 
  • Water: once a week. 
  • Air cleaner: removes toxins from the air.

6. Yucca or Majesty Palm 

Another striking plant, the majesty palm can grow up to 10 feet tall indoors. They’re happiest in bright direct sun and will need a deep container to prevent the top-heavy stems from toppling over. 

Care Tips: 
  • Light: thrives in medium to bright indirect light. 
  • Water: once every 2 weeks. 
  • Air cleaner: removes toxins from the air. 

7. Parlour Palm 

The parlour palm is an easy and beautiful lush plant, perfect for filling space. It thrives in a variety of light situations, requires little care and is a great air purifier making it a perfect option for Airbnb’s with less-than-ideal growing conditions.  

Care Tips: 
  • Light: bright, indirect light, but will readily adapt to low light as well. 
  • Water: once a week in the summer and every 2 weeks in the winter. 
  • Air cleaner: removes formaldehyde from the air. 

8. Aloe Vera 

Aloe Vera is a great succulent for an Airbnb, as any broken leaves will regrow making them almost indestructible. It’s important not to overwater them so only water when the top few centimetres of soil are dry. 

Care Tips: 
  • Light: thrives in a bright, sunny spot. 
  • Water: once every 3 weeks. 
  • Air cleaner: removes formaldehyde and benzene. 

Whichever plant you choose for your Airbnb, it’ll be sure to brighten up the space and enhance your guest’s experience during their stay.
