The Easiest Plants to Grow Indoors
Bringing plants inside your home can add life and a new element of design. Most people want to have some sort of plant inside, but a common issue people run into is choosing a species that’s difficult to care for. The plant dies, and the person who tried to keep it alive feels discouraged and just thinks they’re not cut out for interior plantscaping. This simply isn’t true! If you’re new to the interior plant world, there are some species that are very forgiving and are great to start out with. You should choose one that’s simple to care for, and slowly you can work your way up to owning high-maintenance (but high reward) species. If you want to know what some of the easiest plants to grow indoors are, read the article below!
If you don’t know where to begin, getting a Snake plant is definitely a good place to start. These plants have eye-catching snake-like leaves and need very little to survive. As long as they’re getting a little bit of light (it doesn’t have to be a lot) these plants are content. Not only that, but they really only need to be watered every few weeks. All you have to do is pay attention to the soil. Let the soil dry up completely and only water when it needs it. You just need to be really careful not to overwater. These plants are amazing because they are low maintenance, with a high reward!
Like the Snake plant, Spider plants are also very resilient and low maintenance. They often come with interesting variegated leaves that stretch out like spider legs. They also need to be watered only every few weeks or so, and you’ll be amazed at how much they grow with so little care! Just keep the leaves dusted so that they can take in all of the light and air they need, and they’re good to stay put for a long time. Snake plants are also very high-reward plants with little effort!
If you’re interested in a hanging plant, getting a Pothos is a great option. These plants will grow to create foliage over the sides of the pot and can grow to be very large in size. However, their maintenance is slightly more involved. They require a little more water than the previously mentioned plants needing a drink every week and a half or so. But it’s definitely worth the effort. You’ll quickly fall in love with their effortless, majestic appearance!
Don’t let the name of this plant intimidate you. Echeveria is the plant that everyone pictures when they hear the word “succulent”! Succulents are notorious for being cute and super simple to care for. The only reason a lot of people get frustrated with their newly adopted Echeverias is because they tend to overwater them, which leads to wilting, and to more watering. When in doubt, let your plant dry out a little bit before the next water. These guys really only need a drink every few weeks! They’re so fun and you can even create a small succulent garden with low-maintenance but adorable species like Echeverias.
Money Tree Bonsai
If you’re looking for a unique plant to match your home’s interior design, miniature Bonsai trees are the way to go. They’re surprisingly low maintenance and almost appear too cool to be real! People will be shocked to learn that your Bonsai tree is living. Water it about once a week, and make sure it has plenty of sunlight and drainage. It’s definitely another high-reward but low-maintenance option!
Choose one of these plants if you’re having a hard time trying to decide which interior plant to introduce to your home first. These will help you build your confidence and learn how to care for plants indoors! Follow our blog for more plant advice.
