Most of the time when we think of plants, we think of adding the color green to our home, adding green to our spaces, or making a green wall or a green space. Today we want to highlight the beautiful pink plants that are out there just naturally gorgeous, beautiful pink plants that are going to continue to be pink as they grow and add even more color to your home.

Begonia

This plant has fuzzy, sparkly, gorgeous leaves. They have many different kinds of variegation going on. They usually have pink venation, pink foliage, and/or pink stems as well. They can come in all different kinds of beautiful, intricate patterns. They can have little scalloped edges. They can be the most beautiful plants that you have ever seen. Another bonus is begonia can survive in a variety of conditions.

There are some that like high light while others enjoy low light. Some are little terrarium plants. Then much larger Begonia prefer to be outdoors and in bright lights. These can get big and beautiful. Then most have pink or red blooms as well. There is an easy care begonia that likes to just sit on your tabletop and relax and enjoy. You just need to choose which begonia would work best for your space.

Stromanthe Triostar

A beautiful prayer plant that comes in beautiful pink variegation. It has pink on the front and then it has a deep purplish pink on the back for the foliage. It looks like a neon beautiful hot pink when you have light shining through and you’re looking at it from the backside. Gorgeous plant.

The one caveat, though, is that this plant is a little bit finicky. They like higher humidity. They usually have some type of crispy tips because they’re very particular about their water. If there’s a concentration of minerals or chemicals in the water, (even well water has been a little bit tricky with these plants) the plants will have leaf burn and develop crispy tips.

If you do decide to get one definitely get a bigger size plant. Because when you get the smaller ones, you’re going to notice those imperfections a lot more often. However, if you get a bigger one, then it is going to be beautiful. Even if it loses a leaf here or has a crispy tip there, you’re not even going to notice. No one else will either. All you will see is the gorgeousness of that pink.

Syngonium

Next up, we wanted to talk about the Syngonium Neon Robusta. Syngonium is a very fast grower. They do not need a lot of light. They like to climb or they will get very busy as they sit in their pots and then they will kind of trail out and over places. Stunning plants. Very fun to grow. The Neon robusta in particular is one of over 20 varieties of pink synonyms out there.

Syngoniums do need a little bit more light if they’re going to keep their color. If you keep them in just low light, then they will turn green slowly over time. That’s how a lot of Syngonium is going to be. They’re not going to have a lot of color on them. If you’re keeping them in lower light, they will just lose that variegation. They won’t need that extra protection from the sun.

So, if you would like more coloration on your Syngonium and you want to keep that beautiful pink, try giving it a little bit more light. If it starts to burn, you can always scoot it back a little bit and kind of test it out that way for your home because everyone’s home is different.

Tradescantia

This plant has taken the plant community by storm over the last few years. It is beautiful, pink, and striped. It trails and creeps out. It’s very fun and easy to propagate.

Tradescantia in general love to grow. That is really the only downside. They grow very quickly, very easily. You can just take cuttings and shove them back in the soil to make a bigger bushier plant. Very easy care. Just let them dry out, relax, and put them in quite a bit of sun. They will grow so quickly for you.

Peperomia Pink Lady

This is a stunning plant, one of our favorites.  It comes up with these beautiful splotches of pink variegation. It will lose its variegation if given lower light, but then when given highlight, again, that variegation will come back. It is so fun to grow. This is a Peperomia Caperata variety. So they prefer to have higher humidity. They don’t like to dry out nearly as much as other Peperomia. They are also a little bit more finicky.

If you are going to get one of these and not keep them in a terrarium, then definitely make sure you are getting a bigger, heartier version. The smaller versions like to be in a terrarium high-humidity environment. The coloration though is gorgeous. Even if you get a tiny one. You don’t have a terrarium. You can put them in a cloche and they’re very cute there.

Fittonia

  These are water hogs. They love water. Fittonia “Frankie” in particular is one of many pink Fittonia. The difference between fittonia Frankie and a lot of other fittonia is that Frankie can get very pink and has very delicate Lacey Ruffled-looking edges. Very gorgeous plants. The more light you keep it in, the pinker it’s going to have. It’s going to kind of sprawl out in places. They are creeping plants. If you don’t give them enough light, then they will get higher and taller. Seeking out that light. However, if you keep them in really good light, then they will stay lower down to the ground and spread out in their pot. More horizontal growth and less vertical growth mean more visible pink for you.

All of these beautiful pink house plants can bring a lot of color to your home. Most of them are pretty easy to care for. And if they’re not easy to care for, you know about it ahead of time. So that way you can see if they’re going to work in your conditions with your care requirements. All of these plants are pretty fast growers. So even if you get them smaller, you can have a very big, beautiful pink plant very shortly. A lot of them don’t get too big like a Fittonia Frankie or Pink Lady Peperomia, for example. They go great on little shelves. It just depends on where you’re feeding this plant to go. But if you like pink, then one of these plants is going to work beautifully in your home.
