Ricardo ElisiárioI really like Halloween. There’s a certain gloomy coziness to this time of year that carries much liveliness besides also building up the mood for the upcoming festive season, our awaited Christmas and all the food, light and love that comes with it.

Since every special date cannot pass without proper celebration, what could be better than hunting down some peculiar indoor plants for this Halloween and treating ourselves and our friends to them?

Spider Plant (Chlorophytum comosum)

Starting with the simplest choice for a houseplant, it’s the spider plant. With such a name, I guess we all agree that it deserves an invitation to come in and crash any Halloween party.

Its foliage is sleek and usually variegated, but the characteristic that makes it stand out is the crawly, extended inflorescences filled with tiny clones of the mother plant. If you hang it from the ceiling or against the wall, you’ll be able to see these branches dive down, cluttered with tiny plantlets like antsy spiders hanging on a thread.

Staghorn Fern (Platycerium bifurcatum)

This horned specimen is very peculiar. It’s native of Australia and grows naturally on tree trunks without any concern. At home, you might want to expose it to guests by implanting it on a simple living wall, commonly used for ferns. It’ll hang neatly, like a symbiote eager to find its way into you.

Urn Plant (Aechmea fasciata)
