The Best House Plants for Every Zodiac Sign

the best plants for your zodiac sign by the astrotwins and the sill

What’s not to love about plants? They’re only one letter off from “planets,” after all—and as the jewels of the Earth, they bring vibrance and life force energy to your home and environment.

Want to become a “plant parent” for a leafy love-child that’s specially suited to your sign? We teamed up with our friends at the boutique plant brand The Sill and paired a houseplant with every zodiac sign. Read on to find yours!

Aries: Calathea Dottie

The Sill:

Calathea Dottie has a very colorful personality- putting its beautiful painted leaves out on display, as well as dancing with the light as it rises and sets each day. This beauty, however, can be sort-of clingy with its requirements needing warmer temperatures, higher humidity levels, and indirect light. The Calathea is a great pair for a caretaker personality. 

The AstroTwins:

Vibrant Aries is a fascinating fire sign and your bold personality matches Calathea Dottie’s to a tee. While you’re independent, you love providing for those who rely on you—and as a proud plant parent, you won’t mind fussing over this one!

Taurus: Silver Satin

The Sill:

Silver Ann is beautiful with that go with the flow attitude- trailing and climbing wherever it’s comfortable. Adaptable to various light and environmental conditions, this plant will remain confident without a fuss. 

The AstroTwins:

Hardy, self-assured Tauruses know who they are and what they like and never apologize for it. They seek comfort in any situation and know how to be self-sufficient. Although this sign likes nice things, they can be surprisingly low-maintenance, preferring to provide for others instead of demanding too much for themselves.

Gemini: Marble Pothos

The Sill:

The Marbled Pothos has a versatile nature that is flexible to various conditions. It will work a bit harder than most since its variegated zones make it work twice as hard to retain its beautiful white/green foliage. Therefore, giving the plant bright indirect light will quench its thirst to have a busy schedule!

The AstroTwins:

Versatile Gemini has many sides and colors, just like the variegated leaves of the Marble Pothos. There’s no set pattern they’ll follow, no single reason to their rhyme, and that’s what makes both Gemini and this plant unique! Like the Marble Pothos, Geminis love to stay busy—and it takes just the right conditions to get them to settle down.

Cancer: Ficus Tineke (or all ficus)

The Sill:

Ficus are striking plants that like change as they will grow with their environment and not remain the same. A demanding plant perfect for someone who has the patience to give it the care and pruning it’ll need. Being sun lovers they will require a location close to a window that gets bright light. 

The AstroTwins:

Cancer is ruled by the moon, as like the lunar phases, this sign’s moods can fluctuate. The Ficus also ebbs and flows, and just like this zodiac sign, may need lots of coddling to give it enough confidence to grow. Beachy Crabs thrive in the Sun, too, and this plant-parent pairing will bond through Cancer’s attentive caretaking.

Leo: Monstera

The Sill:

The Monstera is an attention seeker who likes to make a statement and stand out from the rest. Whether they are bushing out at floor level or climbing toward the ceiling- they will certainly find a way to capture attention. Bright indirect light, and keeping the soil on the drier side is ideal, and boosting humidity will make them even happier!

The AstroTwins:

Head-turning Leos attract the spotlight wherever they go. Like the Monstera, your presence fills a room and is impossible to ignore. Leos also love bright light, too, whether it’s from your ruling star, the Sun, or a stadium filled with adoring fans.

Virgo: Echeveria agavoides

The Sill:

Self-contained with a hermit side, Virgos don’t mind spending time by themselves. In fact, they may prefer it! This regimented sign loves a plan and to have everything in its place. Virgos will happily parent a plant that follows a schedule and tends to be fastidious just like them.

The AstroTwins:

Echeveria likes to stick to a routine, having things be a certain way, otherwise discomfort is inevitable. More of an introvert, the Echeveria will live happily planted alone in a window with full sun and will need water once the soil has dried.

Birds Nest Fern Victoria

The Sill:

The Birds Nest requires a little extra love and care – they get fussy when neglected. Indirect light, higher humidity, and a bit more frequent waterings are key to live happily with a Birds Nest Fern. In return, it will reward you with beautiful fronds and compassion.

The AstroTwins:

AstroTwins’s answer: Libra is ruled by aesthetic and empathic Venus—and the delicate, lovely Birds Nest Fern Victoria also exudes a rare beauty. Just like this plant, Libras don’t apologize for being high maintenance. After all, you get to bask in their beauty and love—a fair exchange for your extra efforts, right?

Scorpio: Philo Green Cordatum 

The Sill:

Philodendron has a tolerant nature to various conditions, both low and bright indirect light. As well as requiring minimal waterings- they are easy going and don’t need to be in the spotlight to draw attention.

The AstroTwins:

Transformational Scorpio attracts attention without trying. After all, they have a secretive side to them and don’t necessarily want to be noticed. But their magnetic energy turns heads nonetheless, something they have strongly in common with the Philo Green Cordatum.

Sagittarius: Coffee Plant

The Sill:

Having an energetic personality, the Coffee plant’s shiny green foliage brings life to any room it enters. Give water every 1-2 weeks, bright indirect light, along with minimal pruning to help keep its shape. 

The AstroTwins:

Hyperkinetic Sagittarians rarely run out of energy, and they don’t need a lot of attention to grow and expand. This low-maintenance, high-velocity sign runs on “natural caffeine” and, like the Coffee plant, adds natural vibrance to every space and scene!

Capricorn: Haworthia Zebra

The Sill:

A reliable plant whose tough, hardy leaves display how durable it can be. Haworthia doesn’t need a lot of maintenance to look good and can tolerate neglect. The plant doesn’t need full sun to be happy, and keeping the waterings on the infrequent side. 

The AstroTwins:

The most resilient of the signs, Capricorns are built to last—in fact, they thrive on surviving under minimalist conditions. The less you fuss over them, the better, just like the Haworthia Zebra. Sleek and chic, this understated sign pairs perfectly with a plant that’s ruggedly handsome, too.

Aquarius: Pilea Peperomioides

The Sill:

Pilea is truly one of a kind with a bubbly personality that their bouncy leaves help convey. Med-bright indirect light and light waterings are ideal to keep their perky, optimistic demeanor balanced. Otherwise, without the fundamentals it needs, you won’t be able to absorb its good vibes. 

The AstroTwins:

The zodiac’s Water Bearer is a peppy presence in any group, just like the Pilea Peperomiodes. As the sign of the future, Aquarians don’t like to get dragged into drama. They’d rather envision a bright tomorrow and spread happiness, just like this plant.

Pisces: ZZ Plant

The Sill:

A great plant for someone who’s always on the go- the ZZ is a very forgiving and hardy plant that can endure a wide array of conditions. Water when the soil is dry, but even if you forget the plant won’t fret since it’s pretty drought tolerant.  No matter the weather- ZZ manages to remain low maintenance but looking good. 

The AstroTwins:

Pisces are natural nurturers, but this daydreamy sign can slip into their imagination, losing track of things like time, space and watering schedules. For the caring water sign that doesn’t always thrive in the mundane, the ZZ plant will keep on growing and going, adapting to fluctuating conditions just like the zodiac’s Fish.
