Tropical Climate

These tropical plants prefer medium to high humidity, regular watering or rainfall, and frost free conditions. The more sun they get, the more water or rain they usually need. If you live in a region that gets frosts in winter, enjoy them as indoor plants and conservatory plants. If your tropical or subtropical garden is shady, take a look at our Leafy Plants category for plants that will grow better in these conditions.
