Trying to decide what houseplant you should add to your collection? Try consulting with the stars! You may be surprised at how your personality reflects some traits of these favorite plants. Read on to find out what houseplant is a perfect match for your zodiac sign.
Aries (March 21 – April 19)
Your Zodiac Sign Houseplant Match: Ruby Ball Cactus
Also known as a Grafted Cactus, Moon Cactus, or Ruby Red Cactus, this low-maintenance option can withstand some drought and neglect. It has a strong base that holds up a blooming ball of red, yellow, or orange. Just like an Aries, this plant may be a bit prickly, but both plant and person are tenacious and beautiful. Aries and the Ruby Ball Cactus are independent souls, so give them what they need, then give them space, or you might get stung!
Taurus (April 20 – May 20)
Your Zodiac Sign Houseplant Match: Pothos
Stubborn, beautiful, and romantic, the pothos is a perfect houseplant for the earthy, ethereal Taurus. Whether you opt for the golden, marbled, neon, or satin cultivars, the pothos is known for its ability to thrive with a little neglect and reward you with fast-growing blooms. Taurus is ruled by the planet Venus, known for its beauty, sensuality, and romance. A viny, drapey pothos plant is the perfect match for Taurus energy.
Gemini (May 21 – June 20)
Your Zodiac Sign Houseplant Match: Air Plants
Gemini is an air sign known for its duality and easy-going nature. Air plants are some of the most intriguing plants you can own. They are highly adaptive to any environment they are placed in. They respond just fine to change and add a special vibe wherever they go. Geminis and air plants are both a ton of fun to be around, so bring some into your life!
Cancer (June 21 – July 22)
Your Zodiac Sign Houseplant Match: Money Tree Plant
Soft, sweet, deep, and oh so generous. If you’re a Cancer, then you should find yourself a perfectly matched plant that warms the hearts of everyone around it and gives back in abundance. The Money Tree Plant has deep roots and brings joy and prosperity to anyone lucky enough to have one in their life.
Leo (July 23 – August 22)
Your Zodiac Sign Houseplant Match: Bromeliad
Boastful, glorious, and the center of attention, the Bromeliad is as bold as a lion, just like Leo. Its gorgeous blooms come in many bright, memorable shades because it loves to show off. The Bromeliad’s magnetism sometimes masks its other trait—generosity. It loves to bear baby plants for you to prune off and replant. The fun never stops when you’re around this fiery plant!
Virgo (August 23 – September 22)
Your Zodiac Sign Houseplant Match: ZZ Plant
Responsible, reliable, and always coming in handy, you can set your watch to a Virgo—and a ZZ plant! While Virgos may be a bit more high-maintenance than their plant counterpart, both can mostly manage on their own. Virgos are known for their cleaning skills, and ZZ plants make for excellent air purifiers. When you are off worrying about your other friends (plant or human), you know a Virgo and a ZZ have got things covered.
Libra (September 23 – October 22)
Your Zodiac Sign Houseplant Match: Peace Lily
The Libra is all about justice, fairness, and balance. What better way to celebrate than to have a peace lily around? Libras are always lovely to have around, and nobody can take issue with a simple, stunning peace lily. They do like a bit of attention, though, so make sure both your Libra and your lily have enough room to grow. Once in a while, remember to dust them off and tell them how pretty they are.
Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)
Your Zodiac Sign Houseplant Match: Snake Plant
Besides the similarities between scorpions and snakes, there is also a moody attractiveness to both. Snake plants and Scorpios like to handle their own affairs. Too much human interference will ruin the vibe. Just like Scorpios themselves, no two snake plants are alike—they come in many varieties, depending on what you prefer.
Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)
Your Zodiac Sign Houseplant Match: Monstera
Fun-loving, well-liked, adaptable, and just a teeny bit reckless, the Sagittarius pairs well with the fan-favorite Monstera. Monsteras are in high demand right now, just like social-butterfly Sags. These outgoing plants are the stars of any plant collection, but you do need to know how to handle them! Try to reign in your Monstera with a bit of structure (or a moss pole) so that they can thrive and grow in a positive, healthy direction.
Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)
Your Zodiac Sign Houseplant Match: Bonsai Tree
Ol’ reliable Capricorn is the friend we go to when we need a plan and a listening ear. They can help be the calm in our storm. That’s why a peaceful Bonsai Tree is the perfect houseplant match for you. While a bit on the traditional side, Capricorns and Bonsai trees alike can give you a good dose of grounding reality when you need it. Nurturing these plants and these qualities can help you find a moment of zen in an otherwise chaotic time.
Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)
Your Zodiac Sign Houseplant Match: Venus Flytrap
Venus Flytraps aren’t weird; they’re just misunderstood. Okay, they are a little weird. Like their Aquarius counterparts, Venus Flytraps have odd behavior that not everyone can follow, but there’s always a method to their madness! Aquarians see things outside of the box; they look at problems differently. Kind of like the Venus Flytrap, which gets a lot of its nutrients by trapping pests in its strange carnivorous “jaws.” Innovative!
Pisces (February 19 – March 20)
Your Zodiac Sign Houseplant Match: String of Dolphins
While this watery connection is a bit literal, the String of Dolphins is a great match for Pisces for more reasons beyond the obvious. Pisces rules over emotions, and the String of Dolphins evokes feelings of connectedness to nature. However, these tendrils can spread out and take over, just like a Piscean’s emotions if they’re not dealt with right away!
