It’s never too late to turn your houseplant home into a spooky plant sanctuary! This dark plant decor is perfect for Halloween. Here’s a little inspiration on how to add a touch of goth to your indoor jungle…
DIY Skull Planters
Recompose! To make, you’ll need a polyresin skull, a drill, and linemans pliers. Mark a circle on the top of the skull, wide enough to fit a pot. Then, trace the circle with drill holes. Use the pliers to carefully chip off pieces of the skull (like an eggshell) until the opening is wide enough for your pot.
My skulls are growing: Philodendron micans (Velvet-Leaf Philodendron) and a Fittonia (Nerve Plant).
Dig up the bones.
Just toss some bones inside your garden pots for a fun skeletal surprise!
If you have real bones… even better!
“Take thy beak from out my heart”
A heart-shaped leaf dripping in black is dark and eerie. Even more, with a stately raven nearby.

Pair Hitchcock’s Psycho with a Monstera deliciosa. Down below, a baby bat flower (Tacca chantrieri) hangs from a rod.
Paint it black.
Terracotta? …or TERRORcotta? Make those creepy crawly vines stand out by painting all of your pots black! Those wicker baskets, too. All you need for this goth garden makeover is acrylic paint (in black, blacker than the void) and a paintbrush…instant mood.
