There are thousands of good excuses to add a new member to your plant family. Regardless of what reason you come up with, you can look to 2024’s trendy plants to decide which ones to add to your collection.

Hoya Carnosa Krimson Princess


It’s looking like flowering house plants are going to take center stage in 2024, specifically hoya.

“Hoya are a wonderful option for houseplants as they respond well to household environments,” Matthew says. “Hoya are known for their unique foliage and often-scented flowers.”

Hoya carnosa Krimson Princess is one of the most fragrant varieties of hoya plants, so they are a great option if a scented plant is on your 2024 punch card. To care for a Hoya, Matthew recommends placing it in direct light, but it can tolerate lower light. You can let your hoya trail out of a pot or train it to grow along a trellis or bamboo hoop.

Philodendron Moonlight

Moonlight Philodendron

In general, Tasha predicts that plant parents will be expanding their collection of neon-hued house plants, specifically via a philodendron moonlight.

“The striking foliage is just fantastic and brings an excellent pop to a room,” she says. “And even though they look like they could be a little harder to care for, they are grown just like their non-neon family members.”

Philodendrons grow best in partial sunlight, but not enough light results in leggy growth between the leaves. These plants prefer loose, acidic soil with a lot of organic matter.

Monstera Thai Constellation

A rare variegated plant that famous all around the world named “monstera thai constellation”.

If there was one houseplant that dominated all others on Instagram in 2020, it was the gorgeous Monstera deliciosa. The large, fenestrated leaves had plant lovers everywhere scrambling to get their hands on the tropical beauty. This year, nearly all the experts that I spoke to agreed that the newer and rarer variety of monstera, the monstera ‘Thai Constellation’ will be the next big “it” plant on Instagram in 2024.

This variegated cultivar of the popular monstera deliciosa is characterized by the same large, fenestrated leaves of the deliciosa with speckled patterns of creamy white and pale green that resemble a constellation.

Variegated Alocasia ‘Frydek’

Another variegated plant you can expect to see more of, according to Jeffrey Mercado, plant parent behind @_thevibespace, is the gorgeous and elusive variegated Alocasia ‘Frydek.’ “Variegated plants are beautiful because each leaf is a surprise — you never know what type of variegated pattern you’ll get,” Mercado says.

This plant is likely one that you’ll see on your favorite plantfluencer’s page, since it is slightly rarer and more difficult to get your hands on than other houseplants on this list.

Hoya is a large genus of plants that are popular as houseplants thanks to their thick, waxy leaves, gorgeous blooms, and trailing growth habit. In the past, these houseplants were mostly coveted by collectors and hoya enthusiasts, but they’ve increasingly made their way into mainstream popularity.

Paul Thompson, the plant expert behind @plantmepaul, says that he expects hoyas in general to be popular on Instagram in 2024.

Dragon Scale Alocasia

Brandon and Emma anticipate that they’ll be selling extra alocasia this year, specifically the rare varieties like the alocasia dragon scale and alocasia tigrina superba.

Alocasia prefers a humid environment, so consider placing this plant in your bathroom or regularly running a humidifier near it.

Pink Syngonium

Arrowhead Vine

Syngonium, also known as arrowhead vine, features arrow-shaped leaves that become more pronounced and deeply lobed as they start to mature. Certain varieties grow in a bushy pattern, while others trail or climb depending on whether or not they have a nearby trellis. You can find them in various colors, such as all green and speckled white. However, the plant also comes in pink, which several of the experts we interviewed cited as a general 2024 house plant trend.

Monstera Albo

One common theme that our plant experts touched on was how variegated plants are going to be on the rise in the coming months. Variegated plants feature more than one color on their leaves, and the monstera albo is a great example that Emma calls a “fan favorite.”

Monstera albo can sell for hundreds of dollars, so you’ll want to do your research before investing. Make sure to place it in indirect but bright light and use a well-draining soil mix.
