Whether you're a nature lover, a newbie at gardening, or simply someone with a green thumb, we can't seem to get enough of indoor plants. We aren't at all surprised—aside from beautifying our homes, they represent a little escape from the city life, too. If you are looking into growing a few planters but you've grown tired of the usual succulents and terrariums, here are some new options that you can hunt down at your local weekend market:

String of Pearls (Senecio rowleyanus)

This unique plant reminiscent of our mom's favorite necklace is actually a crawling succulent that grows best in pots or baskets. It blooms well in warmer climates and doesn't need a lot of watering. However, it needs consistent exposure to light for it to stay healthy.

Silver Vase Plant (Aechmea fasciata)

Fresh blooms that can double as conversation starters? Silver Vase has got you covered. The stiff, gray-green leaves of this plant combined with its large cluster of pink bracts is enough to wow your friends and family. Don't forget to keep the soil moist to keep new offshoots and pups growing properly.

Corkscrew Grass (Juncus effusus)

A fun houseplant with twisted and kinky leaves, it can grow to two feet tall if it's well taken care of. Although native to Japan, Corkscrew Grass enjoys the full sun and minimal watering. It's a great choice for base if you are into building dish gardens, too! 

Donkey’s Tail (Sedum morganianum)

Also called the Burro Tail, this plant has stems that can grow to three feet long–making it a great option for hanging decor. While it can withstand most elements, the Donkey's Tail needs careful handling as the stems can be brittle and its leaves detach easily. 

Pencil Cactus (Euphorbia tirucalli)

This striking succulent is a great choice if you like growing plants in containers. As it grows, it develops fire-red stems that show shades of pink, orange, and yellow that become more vibrant during cooler weather. When it comes to maintenance, "firesticks" grow in full sun and dry cactus soil.
