Mars-ruled Aries are dynamic and energetic but also have a strong independent streak—meaning they need a houseplant that makes a statement but doesn’t require too much attention.

Lucky bamboo plants, which come in various styles and arrangements, are the perfect stylish houseplants that can withstand a little neglect due to Aries’ on-the-go nature.

Taurus: Marble Queen Pothos

Taurus is a Venus-ruled Earth sign known for its love of natural beauty and determination. When choosing a houseplant, Taurus does best with one that is naturally stunning and flourishes well, even with little maintenance.

While this is true of most pothos plants, marble queen pothos’ striking green and white design grows quickly and is relatively low-maintenance—medium to indirect sunlight and allowing the top few inches of soil to dry before each watering—it’s a perfect match.

Gemini: Air Plant

Gemini signs are curious and adaptable thanks to their Mercury-ruled Air sign nature. These signs ideally need plants that are easy to care for, making an air plant an ideal fit.

Air plants don’t require soil to grow but do require regular watering and indirect light to flourish. They also can be displayed in unique ways with countless possibilities, which works well for a Gemini personality.

Cancer: Chinese Money Plant

As a Moon-ruled Water sign, Cancers are drawn to houseplants that give an approachable look and require a little bit of nurturing. The Chinese money plant, also affectionately called a "pancake plant," fits the bill.

Its coin-shaped leaves make it an attractive and popular plant, and it's easy to maintain with proper water and light. Additionally, Cancers can appreciate the sensitive nature of the plant, as its leaves begin to droop when it needs water.

Leo: Monstera Deliciosa

Leos are ruled by the Sun, meaning they are drawn to bold houseplants that capture attention. Monstera plants are exceptionally popular, especially online, and for a good reason—their large, visually striking leaves and large stature make for a great statement piece.

While there are plenty of Monstera varieties to choose from, the Delciosa is a classic that adds some flair to any space—perfect for a fiery Leo. It's important to note that this plant can't handle direct sunlight, so keep it in partial Sun to keep it thriving.

Virgo: Fiddle Leaf Fig

Virgos are particular and detail-oriented as a Mercury-ruled Earth sign, which makes them unafraid to take on challenges.

When selecting a houseplant, Virgos can handle varieties that require more care and attention, especially when the results are worthwhile—making a fiddle-leaf fig fit for consideration.

While these plants have a tough reputation, their specific requirements, such as rotating every few days so leaves get an even amount of Sun and occasional pruning, won’t overwhelm the reliable zodiac sign.

Libra: String of Pearls

Libras are balanced and adaptable, thanks to their Venus-ruled Air sign traits. Like Taurus, Libra gravitates toward aesthetically pleasing plants and helps bring harmony to their space.

A string of pearls plant is more than suitable for the social zodiac sign, as its pearl-like tendrils gracefully spill over the side of the pot or hanging basket, creating a balanced look as it continues to grow. Plus, it's easy to propagate, making it perfect to share with Libra's social circle.

Scorpio: Succulents

Scorpio signs are known for their reserved water-sign nature, making succulents perfect for their Pluto-ruled personality. Succulents are known for their hardy nature, which matches Scorpio's own tough shell approach to life.

Succulents don't require much watering and can thrive well in the proper lighting (which can vary depending on the succulent variety).

Sagittarius: Snake Plant

For the restless fire sign that is always on the go, high-maintenance houseplants won’t survive long-term. Sagittarius signs need a houseplant that can tolerate periods of neglect, as their plans and schedules may change rapidly.

Snake plants are the perfect plant companion, as they can go long periods without water or specific sunlight—it takes a lot to kill them, which is ideal for a spontaneous Sag.

Capricorn: Jade Plant

As a Saturn-ruled Earth sign, Capricorns are resilient and sophisticated and opt to mirror those traits in their surroundings. Despite that they aren't fast-growing, jade plants are perfectly suited for Capricorns, who excel in patience and longevity.

Plus, their straightforward care of bright, indirect sunlight and regular watering is perfect for the Seagoat's busy schedules.

Aquarius: Pilea Involucrata

As a Uranus-ruled air sign, Aquarians are never ones to go for your average houseplant. Look no further than a pilea involucrata, or “friendship plant, " for a unique yet manageable houseplant.”

Their deeply veined and textured leaves make a statement that will undoubtedly appeal to the air sign’s preferences. These plants thrive best in bright, indirect sunlight and should be watered regularly (but not too much).

Pisces: Heart-Leaf Philodendron

For the Neptune-ruled water sign that has a soft spot for nostalgia, a heart-leaf philodendron is a great houseplant choice for a Pisces. Pisces are known to be deeply sensitive, and a houseplant that is easy to care for can help calm their minds.

Heart-leaf philodendrons have a reputation for being an easy-going houseplant as long as they are watered every 1-2 weeks and are given medium, indirect lighting.
