Tiny houseplants are adorable and all, but large, oversized houseplants are a growing (sorry, couldn't resist!) trend. Not only do they add a whole lot of life to your home, but they're also a great option if you want to make a statement with your decor. Just a few tall plants are all it takes to turn your home into a tropical oasis, your own personal indoor jungle, or even a Tuscan villa. But you can't just fill your home with any old plants—make sure you get one that you can take care of, too. After all, the bigger the plant, the more expensive it usually is. Here are some of the most popular oversized plants out there, where to buy them, and how to keep them thriving in your home.

There are tons of varieties to choose from (like this stunning red!) with Draecana plants, but the good thing about them is that they're forgiving, like snake plants. Keep them on the drier side and give them a good amount of light (they're not low-light plants) and they'll do just fine.

Money trees are beautiful (especially with braided stems) but they're a little more challenging to care for. They require medium to bright indirect light as well as extra humidity, and while they should be watered infrequently, they require a lot of water each time.
