Tall plants have a relaxing effect with their decorative green leaves and ensure a good indoor climate.
This picture gallery shows a few easy-care giants.
1 / 10With good care, the indoor linden tree grows up to three meters high, about one meter wide and produces pretty flowers from November to May.
The rest of the year they decorate their large leaves.
2 / 10Don't worry, the rubber tree in your living room will not reach a height of 25 meters.
Far from his Asian homeland, he is content with a good two meters.
3 / 10The name says it all: With the right pot size, the Monstera can easily reach the three-meter mark - including cleverly slotted leaves.
4 / 10The golden fruit palm is easy to care for and, with its impressive four meters, brings a tropical beach feeling into the room.
5 / 10The bird of paradise flower or strelitzia impresses with its up to one meter long leaves and flowers, which, with good care, form from the age of three.
6 / 10The elephant ear (Alocasia) has huge leaves that are up to 1.50 meters wide.
It is so vigorous that it should be repotted every year.
7 / 10 When buying an indoor banana, pay attention to the variety, otherwise it will quickly outgrow you.

Would you rather have a small jungle in your room or a stylish solitary plant that immediately attracts attention?
The tropical plants in this picture gallery can do both.
They often grow so quickly that they can quickly reach the ceiling.
This is ideal for high rooms, but sometimes requires repotting.
The chickens reward this with an exotic flair and good air; their large leaves filter out far more pollutants than an African violet - at least if you dust the leaves every now and then.
On the whole, the gentle green giants are easy to care for and can even tolerate being outdoors during the summer season.
