This beautiful plant does not withstand heat. In fact, its ideal temperature should not exceed 18º c.

2 Basil

If this aromatic plant dies before you have had the opportunity to make your caprese salad with it, it is likely that the cause is its location. And it needs at least 6 hours of direct sunlight every day (yes, even if it is cloudy).

3 Alocasia

Also known as "elephant ear" for the shape of its leaves, this plant requires constant watering from spring to autumn. To have all the water you need, you can use a system like the one in the image.

4 Banana

This tropical plant needs a lot of humidity in the environment (at least 50% or more). In addition, it requires about 12 hours of direct sunlight.

5 Calathea ornata

This plant is very sensitive to cold and temperature fluctuations. To grow well you need a warm temperature, humidity and lots of light.

6 Ctenanthe

It is a very volatile plant: if it receives little light, the color of its leaves will darken and will not show its beautiful drawing. On the other hand, if you have too much, the leaves will "fade".

7 Fern

As it is a forest plant, its leaves are very fragile and do not tolerate direct light well. If you are in an illuminated area, keep in mind that the more clarity you receive, the more water you will need.

8 Stromanthe 'Tricolor'

This colorful plant needs a higher than average humidity percentage. The ideal would be to have it in a terrarium, but if it is not possible, you can place it in the bathroom. Of course, you will have to vaporize your leaves with water daily. Via House Beautiful
