Embrace the Pink: 10 Trending Indoor Plants with Pink Foliage

Pink is having a moment, not just in fashion and home decor, but also in the world of houseplants. The allure of pink flowers has always been strong, but now, the trend is shifting towards plants with pink foliage. As Valentine’s Day approaches, what better time to embrace these feminine-touched plants that can bring a splash of color to your living space? Here are my top 10 trending indoor plants with pink foliage that are sure to captivate your senses.

1. Variegated Rubber Plant

The leaves of the variegated rubber plant display stunning shades of pink, yellow, cream, and green. These plants thrive in bright indirect light, so avoid direct sunlight as it can scorch the delicate pink leaves. However, be cautious not to provide too much shade, as it can cause the beautiful variegation pattern to fade. With their tree-like stature, these rubber plants can grow to be 4-6 feet tall, making them a striking addition to any room.

2. Arrowhead Plant

With its elegant pink leaves, the arrowhead plant flourishes in bright light. However, be mindful that insufficient light can dull the vibrancy of its foliage and lead to straggly growth. Arrowhead plants also appreciate a humid environment, so consider misting them occasionally or placing them in a bathroom or kitchen where humidity is naturally higher.

3. Pink Aglaonema

Also known as the Chinese evergreen, Aglaonema is a versatile plant that can thrive in various indoor environments. While it can tolerate low light conditions, it prefers bright indirect light to truly showcase its pink foliage. Additionally, Aglaonemas are known for their resilience in artificial light, making them an excellent choice for office spaces. You can choose from several stunning pink and red foliage varieties, such as ‘Hot Pink Valentine’ and “Pink Splash.”

4. Triostar Stromanthe

The Triostar Stromanthe boasts variegated green and white leaf tops, with its undersides revealing a mesmerizing magenta pink hue. These plants require a bit more care, craving perfect light conditions and abundant humidity. If you decide to add this striking pink plant to your collection, you’ll need to devote a little extra effort to ensure its well-being.

5. Pinstripe Plant

Calathea ornata, also known as the pinstripe plant, showcases distinctive pink and dark green pinstriped leaves. Originating from tropical regions, this plant thrives in humid conditions and bright indirect light. It is important to note that the pinstripe plant requires a particular level of care, making it a great choice for intermediate-level houseplant growers.

6. Tricolor Tradescantia

Tradescantia plants are beloved for their trailing habit and unique foliage. The tricolor variety features variegated green, white, and pink leaves that create a captivating visual display. To maintain the plant’s spectacular leaf coloring, provide it with bright, indirect light. Excessive sunlight can scorch the leaves, while inadequate light will result in faded variegation.

7. Pink Princess Philodendron

The Pink Princess Philodendron is a highly sought-after specimen in the world of plants, and it’s easy to see why. With its vibrant pink leaves, this variety is somewhat rare and comes with a hefty price tag due to the need for propagation by cutting to replicate its pink mutation. Additionally, these plants are relatively easy to care for, making them even more desirable. Although I have yet to see one in person, I am eagerly awaiting the opportunity.

8. Pink Nerve Plant

Frittonia, commonly known as the Pink Nerve Plant, derives its name from its intricately patterned pink and green foliage, resembling delicate nerves. This trailing plant thrives in bright indirect light, making it ideal for hanging baskets or elevated shelves where it can cascade gracefully.

9. Polka Dot Plant

Polka dot plants are renowned for their eye-catching leaves, speckled with vibrant shades of pink, red, or white. While they make excellent houseplants, they can also be grown outdoors as annuals during the warm months. Mixing them with other plants in container gardens can create a delightful display. For the best coloration, ensure they receive bright indirect light.

10. Colorama Dracaena

Colorama Dracaena plants are tall, upright, and boast long, slender leaves in a vivid shade of pink. These low-maintenance houseplants thrive in medium light conditions and are renowned for their air-purifying qualities, making them a functional and visually appealing addition to your home or office.
