What Makes a Houseplant "Haunted"? 🤔👻
While not technically haunted (or so we think), some houseplants have unusual features that give off a mysterious, if not downright creepy, vibe. Their peculiar shapes, rare colours, or even carnivorous habits can make them a focal point in a room — especially when paired with gothic or mystical décor.
Featured Haunted Houseplants from Houseplant.co.uk 🌱
Venus Fly Trap 🪰
Talk about a plant with a bite! This carnivorous wonder is a Halloween staple. Its jaw-like leaves snap shut when an unsuspecting insect lands on them, making it a great conversation starter (or ender, if you’re an insect).
Elephant Ear | Pink Dragon & Elephant Ear | Polly
These plants have large, almost eerie, ear-shaped leaves. The ‘Pink Dragon’ variety adds a touch of mystical colour with pink veins running through its dark leaves, whereas the ‘Polly’ variety offers a more compact look with ripple-edged leaves.
Snake Plant | Black Gold & Snake Plant | Samurai Dwarf
Known for their tall, sword-like leaves, snake plants evoke images of dark, overgrown forests. The ‘Black Gold’ variety can grow quite tall and is perfect for a corner, while the ‘Samurai Dwarf’ offers a rare, compact shape ideal for tabletops.
Brain Cactus 🧠 🌵
This cactus literally looks like a brain, and it’s hard to find! A surefire way to make your guests look twice, especially if placed in an ornate, perhaps even skull-shaped, pot.
Never Never Plant | Compact Star
With its deep green leaves marbled with silver, the Never Never Plant seems as if it stepped right out of a fairy tale, one that may not have a happy ending.
Pink Princess Philo | Rare Plant
Add a touch of luxury to your haunted collection with this rare plant. Its dark leaves splashed with pink can add a sense of dark romance to any setting.
Trumpet Pitcher Plant | Fly Catcher 🪰
Another carnivorous plant, this one has long, tubular leaves that trap and digest insects. Perfect for adding a sense of danger to your room!
Elephant Ear | Dragon Scale | Rare Plant
This rare Elephant Ear variant looks like something straight out of a dragon’s lair, with its texturised, scale-like leaves.
Orange Spider Plant | Fire Flash
The fiery orange leaves make this spider plant variant look as if it's ablaze, perfect for a slightly different, more dangerous take on the traditional spider plant.
Croton | Petra
This vibrant plant features leaves in autumnal colours, resembling the flames of a bonfire — a fitting finale to our haunted houseplant list.
Create Your Haunted Green Space 👻🌿
Pair these haunted houseplants with dark, ornate pots or even cauldrons for added effect. Position them strategically around your home, perhaps near a mirror to catch guests by surprise, or by a window where they can create eerie shadows in the moonlight.
