Easy Houseplants Even You Can't Kill
If you are anything like us, then you've owned your share of houseplants. Houseplants that did not survive a month before they were a brown withered mess. Being a successful plant parent is all about choosing the right plants. We have a list of ten houseplants that even you can't kill.
Beloved for their tropical look, monsteras adapt to different lighting conditions and don't mind their soil being dry for a few days after you forget to water them.
2. Snake Plant
Also known as sansevieria, snake plants will do just fine in low light areas or in bright, full sun. They don't need much water and aren't sensitive to temperature changes. Plus, they are great natural air purifiers.
3. ZZ Plant
ZZ plants are indestructible. They are a plant that prefers to be basically ignored (the house cat of plants, if you will). They require very little water and grow basically anywhere.
4. Spider Plant
Spider plants prefer bright, indirect sunlight, and will tolerate low light areas. They retain water well and only require water when the top 2 inches of soil are dry. They also make baby plants that you can pot and give to family and friends.
5. Philodendron Heartleaf
Our personal favorite: the philodendron heartleaf is another adaptable plant. This plant is very forgiving. They prefer indirect light. They like to be watered on a regular schedule, but don't mind if you forget to water them every now and then.
6. Hedgehog Aloe
Hedgehog aloe likes direct sunlight. Cousins to the aloe plant, they require very little water.
7. Dracaena Giganta
This plant does best in low to medium light. They only require water when the soil feels dry. The perfect plants for someone with a busy schedule.
8. Ponytail Palm
This succulent likes bright light. All a ponytail palm needs is a sunny spot and little water once in a while.
Alaonemas thrive in every light condition expect direct sun. They are the perfect plants for hallways or bathrooms. They do require consistent watering, so don't forget to give them some water.
10. Parlor Palm
Parlor palms love bright filtered light. It's best to avoid overwatering and keep the soil a little dry. Parlor palms love a little misting every so often to keep their leaves hydrated. Keep your parlor palm in a warm place and it will love you forever.
These houseplants are easy to care for-- no green thumb required. And no need to worry about them dying as soon as they enter your home.
