What do all accent pieces have in common? Aside from being brightly colored, they are usually huge—the same logic applies to houseplants. If you're planning to draw attention to your indoor garden or the focal point in your living area, you need to go big with your green wonders. Here's a list of plants that will surely add a dramatic touch to your space:

Fiddle-leaf Fig

Also known as Ficus lyrata, the fiddle-leaf fig is a derivative of the common fig. It is native to western Africa (specifically Sierra Leone) and it grows best in lowland tropical rainforests. These grow up to five feet tall with leaves that are incredibly striking—you can't miss it once displayed in a room. 

Ponytail Palm

If you want a houseplant that doesn't require a lot of maintenance, the Ponytail Palm is a great choice. This plant holds a lot of moisture in its bulbous base so it can go for weeks without watering. However, it does need to be placed in a bright spot to help it grow healthy—an east-facing window is most ideal. 

Schefflera

Known as an umbrella plant, the schefflera is a tropical shrub that most professional growers trim to look like a proper tree. It normally grows anywhere between 4 to 6 feet tall and it can tolerate a tiny bit of direct sun. In darker conditions, however, it might grow longer roots and might need pruning to keep it compact. 

Common Fig

Who knew that plain old fig trees can be grown inside your house? Provided with enough sunlight, it can even bear fruit. Be careful of its sap, though, it can be a very potent skin irritant. 

Kentia Palm

For those who don't have a green thumb, the Kentia Palm might be the one for you. It is tolerant of a wide range of indoor conditions and it doesn't require pruning or repotting. The best part? You only need to water it when the soil feels dry to the touch.
