Alabama: Ponytail Palm

Custom-made and curated furniture site Joybird recently released the findings of their study focused on the most popular houseplants in America by state. Read on to see if you have one of these houseplants in your home.

One of Costa Farms' "Plants of Steel," the ponytail palm is a tough plant, though it's not actually a palm.

Alaska: Succulents

A Hindu rope plant curls over the rim of a terrarium made of recycled glass. Stained glass artist Sarah Brueck Williams also placed succulent Mesembryanthemum lehmanni in this octahedron-shaped terrarium.

Arizona: Aloe

We love the way the pop of green from this aloe houseplant really sets off this modern white bathtub.

Arkansas: Peace Lily

Fun fact: Peace lilies are one of the most efficient natural air filters and scrub your home of indoor air pollutants.

California: Calathea Plant

We love the look of this striking green leaf with white stripes Calathea majestica.

Colorado: Peperomia

Wherever you live, when housing your houseplants, look for eye-catching cachepots that can hold—and hide—plain plastic and terra-cotta pots. Pots with matching saucers add cohesive charm to the scene. When you choose cachepots, remember that at times you may have to dump excess water out of the pot.

Connecticut: Peperomia

Peperomia clusiifolia brings color and an interesting leaf shape to any houseplant scheme.

Delaware: Chinese Evergreen

Sturdy but beautiful, Chinese evergreen (Aglaonema) tolerates just about any growing conditions indoors. Leaves offer a variety of eye-catching patterns, and when there’s bright enough light, these tough plants send up calla lily-look-a-like blooms.

Washington D.C.: Fiddle Leaf Fig

One of the hottest houseplants out there, beloved by designers for its dramatic leaves and striking form, fiddle leaf fig is an instant way to add style to your home.

Florida: Bromeliad

This bromeliad, Billbergia, adapts easily to growing in pots and thrives when placed in bright indirect light near a bright eastern window. The long pink flower stem is a showstopper with its dangling form and appearance. Billbergia was introduced to the United States in 1897.

Georgia: English Ivy

A complicated plant, English ivy can be a lovely indoor houseplant with its dangling form, though it is known to wreak havoc in yards because of its invasiveness.

Hawaii: Succulents

Three wall vases with a geometric shape hold succulents that add a touch of greenery to this powder room.

Idaho: Succulents

An art piece made from wood planks and succulents is a lovely way to display these great indoor plants.

Illinois: Aloe

Aloe's dramatic form and healing properties make it a great houseplant choice.

Indiana: English Ivy

A built in stone planter holding autumn ferns and English ivy, which grows up the side of this stone wall.

Iowa: Lucky Bamboo

Lucky bamboo is a fun, easy houseplant that is easy to maintain. Just keep the pot moist and remember that this plant doesn't need a lot of light.

Kansas: Snake Plant

This Sanservia (or snake plant), 'Black Robusta', needs very little water and even thrives on neglect.

Kentucky: Aloe

Want to grow aloe in your place? Don't overwater: every three weeks is about right, and even less in winter.

Louisiana: Bromeliad

The urn plant (Aechmea fasciata) is one of the more common and popular bromeliads. Beloved for its pink and purple flower, the urn plant also offers green and silver banded leaves. Plants flower after reaching maturity, usually around the five-year mark. After blooming, the main plant dies, but you can transplant pups from around the base of the plant.

Maine: Spider Plant

Dracaena 'Song of India' spider plant is a slow growing plant that is slightly poisonous to dogs and cats, so keep it out of their reach.

Maryland: Aloe

Aloe vera plants like to receive plenty of indirect light.

Massachusetts: Peperomia

Small peperomias are available in many leaf shapes and colors, and are often used in pots or in terrarium collections.

Michigan: Aloe

Many cacti and succulents including aloe vera tolerate low humidity indoors, if given a bit of extra light.

Minnesota: Aloe

A short aloe with shiny, bronzy-red or orange leaves, 'Sunset' forms rosettes of foliage. Best coloration occurs in full sun. One- to two-foot flower spikes appear in mid to late winter.

Mississippi: Peace Lily

Peace lily, or spathiphyllum, is one of the most common houseplants and has rich, tropical-looking leaves topped by white flowers that look like calla lilies.

Missouri: Aloe

As semi-tropical plants, most aloes are cold-hardy only to Zone 10, so in cooler climates they're typically grown indoors, where they seldom bloom. Aloe needs lots of bright light for best growth and flowering; if you live in a frost area, try moving the pot outdoors just for the summer to a location where it will get maximum light and minimal rainfall. Make sure that the potting soil is very well-drained.

Montana: Philodendron

Shown here: a vining Philodendron, 'Brasil' which makes a great houseplant.

Nebraska: Peace Lily

Place houseplants to provide a leafy contrast to the hard lines of windows and furniture. Peace lily is a natural for filling a corner, especially if you select the one known as Sensation. This beauty grows to 6 feet tall and easily commands attention in a large room. It holds its own beside a large window, where it receives the high light necessary to promote steady bloom. Tuck it into a simple dark container to let glossy leaves and stately flowers steal the spotlight.

Nevada: Snake Plant

A concrete planter is a perfect modern home for snake plants. Paired with the modern black and white painting and whitewashed wood floors, this corner feels like a mini-modern art gallery as you enter the home.

New Hampshire: Snake Plant

This is one snake you’ll actually want in your house. The snake plant is practically indestructible—tolerating low light and long bouts without water.

New Jersey: African Violet

Violet Saintpaulia flowers, more commonly known as African violets.

New Mexico: Jade Plant

The key to keeping jade plants healthy is allowing plenty of drying time between waterings.

New York: Calathea

White leaves with light and dark green streaks make 'White Fusion’ calathea a colorful addition to any home. Leaf undersides offer a purple tint. It’s an easy growing houseplant that thrives in a brightly lit room.

North Carolina: English Ivy

When you're looking for a houseplant with a dramatic trailing habit, English ivy is a great choice.

North Dakota: Succulents

Agate, geodes and the fun addition of porcupine quills add an unexpected flourish to this tablescape featuring a variety of succulents.

Ohio: Aloe

A stunning bi-color aloe up to 8 inches tall and 6 inches wide, this selection has heavily variegated leaves outlined in white. Plant in full to partial sun.

Oklahoma: English Ivy

A stone wall surrounds this recessed patio, which is topped by a triangular cedar pergola. There's a wrap-around, raised planter, filled with English ivy and other greenery, behind the wall.

Oregon: Snake Plant

Snake plant's dramatic, spiky form makes it a great houseplant for modern, minimalist design schemes.

Pennsylvania: African Violet

'Moon Child’ African violet features large white, double blooms with sky blue stripes down the center of petals.

Rhode Island: Succulents

Here potted succulents reinforce the nature theme in this pretty floral wallpaper.

From: Elizabeth Demos

South Carolina: Aloe

The thick leaves of 'Fire Ranch’ turn bronze in full sun. A large flower spike produces an array of red, orange and yellow blooms. This aloe is hardy in zones 8 - 10.

South Dakota: Kalanchoe

Flattened paddle leaves give this succulent a playful feel and bring strong architectural interest to any setting. Indoors, give this South African native bright light, and water only when the top inch of soil is dry. Low thirst means you can skip town for a week or two with no thought for watering. Also known as dog tongue, desert cabbage and paddle plant, this plant is known botanically as Kalanchoe luciae.

Tennessee: Lucky Bamboo

Lucky bamboo crosses the line between houseplant and art especially when woven or formed in fun shapes.

Texas: Aloe

Nothing could be more lovely than a variety of pots planted with cyclamen, aloe, and sedum on a sunny redwood deck. Aloe works equally well as an indoor plant.

Utah: Snake Plant

Snake plant perfectly complements the clean lines in this living room.

Vermont: Philodendron

You don't have to limit centerpieces to floral arrangements: houseplants like this philodendron make great table toppers too, and they last and last.

From: Joe Human

Virginia: Aloe

Aloe plants blend beautifully with this stunning and on-trend gray kitchen.

Washington: African Violet

African violets thrive in bright, indirect light. Be sure to water the soil and not the leaves to avoid leaf rot.

West Virginia: Snake Plant

There are many different species of the standard sansevieria, including some with light-colored and variegated foliage.

Wisconsin: Peperomia

Peperomia argyreia brings interest to an indoor design scheme with its stunning variegated leaves.

Wyoming: Peace Lily

Peace lily adds a lovely green warmth to this living room and shiny gold bar car. Peace lily blooms best in bright light, but makes a good foliage plant in dimmer spots. It’s also a good pick if you tend to overwater plants, as it likes moist soil.
