There are so many different types and sizes of houseplants to choose from, but if you are looking for a lot of impact, a large houseplant is your best choice. There are countless options to choose from. We list the most beautiful giants for you:

It is important to water the Fiddle leaf fig regularly, but too much water can lead to root rot. Also, make sure the plant is in a spot with good humidity.

How do you take the plant home?
When you have found a large houseplant at the garden center that you would like to take home, transporting it can be a challenge. Many garden centers offer a delivery service, so if you don’t have suitable transportation, this might be an option. If you want to provide your own transportation, make sure you have a car large enough to transport the plant comfortably. Is your car too small? Then you can always rent a van (Dutch: bestelbus huren) or a moving van (Dutch: verhuiswagen huren). Then you won’t have to cram the plant into the car, which will most likely break some branches or leaves.
