Aloes are good indoor plants if you're busy and have a bright spot in your home. These houseplants have a bold texture that works particularly well with modern and contemporary decorating schemes, but they also fit in well if your tastes run more exotic. While aloes are traditionally thought of for their foliage when grown as indoor plants, they can bloom with tall stems of brightly coloured flowers if they get enough light. Aloe vera is the most common type of aloe, but there are plenty of other varieties available. Many have variegated foliage, which adds to their visual appeal.
