The best Mount Isa indoor plants

Indoor plants can be a great way to add some greenery and freshness to your Mount Isa home. But it’s crucial to choose hardy, low-maintenance plants to suit our harsh climate. Read on to find out about some of the best types of Mt Isa indoor plants.

Snake plant

Snake plants are a popular indoor plant choice as they can thrive in a range of conditions, including low light and dry air. They are also known for their air-purifying qualities. Snake plants have tall, vertical leaves that come in shades of green and yellow.

ZZ plant

ZZ plants are another great low-maintenance indoor option. They can tolerate low light, dry air and infrequent watering. In fact, they are known to thrive on neglect!

They have glossy oval-shaped, dark leaves that come in various shades of green and purple. ZZ plants are also known for their air-purifying qualities.

Spider plant

Spider plants are named after their long, narrow, green and white leaves that hang down like spider legs. They can produce small white flower clusters in the right conditions. Spider plants can make great hanging plants and they are also great air-purifiers. They are also very easy to propagate.

They grow quickly and prefer potting mix that drains well. Spider plants often need to be re-potted yearly for the best results.

Aloe vera

Aloe vera is a succulent plant that is well-suited to the hot Mount Isa climate. It’s another low-maintenance indoor plant that can tolerate infrequent watering. Aloe vera leaves store water. Place an aloe vera plant near a window so it gets plenty of light.

It’s also well-known for its healing properties. For example, aloe vera can be used to soothe sunburns and other skin irritations.

Rubber plant

Rubber plants are known for their large, glossy leaves that come in shades of green and burgundy. They can grow to be quite large, making them a great statement piece for any room. Prune them regularly if you want to maintain them at a smaller size. Rubber plants also need a potting mix that drains well, and it’s important not to overwater them.

Chinese evergreen

Chinese evergreens have large, shiny, lance-shaped leaves that come in shades of green and silver. They are also great air-purifiers. It’s another indoor plant that prefers potting mix that drains well and it can tolerate low light conditions.

Boston fern

Boston ferns have long, feathery, arch-shaped fronds that give a lush, tropical feel to any room. They prefer indoor spots that have bright, indirect sunlight. They grow quickly and can quickly fill up an empty space.

Peace lilies

Peace lilies are a hardy plant that can tolerate low light and dry air. They need regular watering and will let you know when they need a drink because their leaves will quickly start drooping. Once you do, they will quickly bounce back and forgive you. Peace lilies are known for their large, white flowers and they are great air-purifiers.


Pothos are a low-maintenance indoor plant option. They can tolerate low light and infrequent watering, making them a great option for busy homeowners. Pothos have trailing vines with heart-shaped leaves that come in various shades of green.


Cacti are traditionally found in deserts, so they can go up to a month without any water. They like plenty of light, so an indoor cacti plant should be placed near a window. Cacti plants come in all shapes and sizes.
