Having plants in the home makes the whole place brighter and more inviting. If you’re not gifted with a green thumb it can sometimes be frustrating to keep them alive. The good news is that you can still have lush greenery in your home without all of the hard work. You just need to know what plants to look for.
Here are 8 easy-care houseplants to consider.
1. Maidenhair Ferns
Pretty, frilly, and hard to kill, Maidenhair Ferns are pretty much the ideal indoor plant.
2. Air Plants
These are so hard to kill, you might even wonder if they’re alive, to begin with.
3. Aloe Vera
Every home medicine advocate’s favorite. Not only is this plant easy to care for, it’s super useful, too.
Speaking of useful, basil is a great plant to have around the house. You can forget it’s around for a couple of days and water it when you remember. It’ll come back again and again.
5. Snake Plant
Snake plants are durable and thrive in a pot, so you won’t have to worry about it when you’re leaving on a trip. This plant is toxic to pets, so keep it far out of their reach.
This easy-care plant gives your home a palm springs kind of vibe.
7. Devil’s Ivy
Even the worst gardener in the world can keep this plant alive! Just water it once in a while and it will reward you by cleaning toxic carbon monoxide out of your air.
8. Rubber Plant
Talk about handy! This little guy (who can grow up to 10 feet) is one of the best plants for removing toxins from the air AND you still can’t kill it — even if you live in a colder climate or like to keep your house at a brisk 68 degrees. Give your rubber plant a name and voila, you’ve got a new best friend that you barely have to do anything for.
