Houseplants are, by far, the most useful decor to date. Aside from adding beauty into your homes, they give off fresh air and improve the overall quality of any space they’re in. Most indoor plants are very resilient; this means that they are tremendously hard to kill even when exposed to harsh conditions. Houseplants can easily be taken care of by beginner plant-parents.
Check out the following plant babies, for anyone who wants to start putting up an indoor in their homes.
Pothos plant (Epipremnum aureum)
This plant isn’t just beginner-friendly; it is also one of the most famous choices for a hanging indoor plant. The Devil’s ivy prefers bright yet indirect light as well as a draft-free place. An attractive and durable vine, it aggressively grows from pots or baskets with only minimal care.
Snake plant or Mother-in-law’s tongue (Sansevieria trifasciata)
This plant is easy to grow and hard to kill. Snake plants are known to remove toxins from the air; you just have to water it regularly and place it in a low-light environment. Green bands on sword-like leaves are the features of ‘snake plants’, while ‘mother-in-law’s tongue’ has yellow leaf margins.
Dragon Tree (Dracaena Species)
Many varieties of this species are suitable to be houseplants. The famous ones, D. draco and D. marginata, are also easy to grow since they tolerate a wide range of conditions. Arching from a woody stem, Dracaena leaves can be green, yellow, and green, or even tri-colored. They need to be regularly watered in the summer but can be almost left dry throughout the winter. Avoid overwatering and keep them away from direct sunlight.
Taking care of a dracaena is very easy. You can learn all about the beginner-friendly plant and ways to take care of it from this article from Happy DIY Home.
Spider plant, Ribbon plant, or St. Bernard’s lily (Chlorophytum comosum)
This plant dangles down from the mother plant just like spiders on a web, thus, the name. Its arching leaves row easily in baskets or on top of columns. Spider plants are tough despite its ease of growing and maintenance; they can also be easily re-potted to grow more. They aren’t picky about their water, light, or temperature conditions.
Succulents and cacti
Succulents and cacti are two of the most adaptable plants one could own. They thrive more when watered sparsely and placed in areas where there is direct sunlight.
