Rightfully so, as you may have noticed the internet is becoming obsessed with pink houseplants. When I see a brilliantly colored houseplant, I am instantly mesmerized. As you can tell by now, I’m a little obsessed with houseplants. Okay, a lot obsessed.

A friend gifted me stunning pink, green, and white Tricolor Prayer Plant, and I am so in awe of this plant. Even after owning it for several months, I walk over and stare at it every morning. The variegated leaves with pink bellies are just so fascinating. Nature is so beautiful! Prayer plants are so fun because they curl up and down depending on the time of day and the amount of light they are getting.

5) Aglaonema “Lady Valentine”

While Aglaonema is often included on lists of low-light tolerant plants, Agloanema “Lady Valentine” does better in medium to bright indirect light. Like the Tradescantia zebrina, the Aglaonema needs brighter light to maintain its pink color. Generally, the brighter the light your plant gets, the deeper pink the color will be. Keep the leaves from any harsh direct sun because they will burn.

9) Ficus Elastica Ruby “Pink Rubber Tree”

The Ficus Elastica Ruby, also known as a variegated Rubber tree, is native to tropical regions of India and Malaysia. Its care is similar to that of the Rubber Tree. However, its unique variegation requires brighter light conditions than the Burgundy Rubber Tree variety to keep the colors strong and defined.
