On top of their beautiful appearance, plants can help you destress and even improve the air quality inside your home.
So, if you would like to decorate with plants but struggle to keep even a cactus alive, we’ve got good news for you. Here’s a list of some indoor plants that will basically take care of themselves.
Aloe is best known for its wide leaves that can soothe cuts and burns. It is advisable to allow the plant’s soil to dry completely in between waterings, which means it may only need water every two to three weeks.
African violets are small and colourful, making them perfect for even the tiniest apartments. They need minimal care to produce flowers during the warmer months, and with a little bit more maintenance they can flower all year round.
The snake plant is a succulent with large, waxy leaves that looks great indoors. It flourishes in a pot and requires very little water or attention, even in low light. They have even been proven to remove toxins from the air!
Spider plants look great in hanging pots, and prefer indirect sunlight. They need watering every 2-6 weeks, and may produce tiny white flowers during the summer.
The key to keeping a dracaena alive is making sure the soil is moist but never soggy. It prefers brightly filtered light, but is quite tolerant of different temperatures inside.
Philodendrons are a long-time favourite of indoor gardeners thanks to their adaptable qualities. Allow the top inch of soil to dry out between waterings and set the plant in a location with bright, indirect sunlight – it will thrive!
