We all love the idea of our home being filled with beautiful bright green plants. But, tragically, for most of us, this dream only lasts for a few weeks until we realised we overwatered, again! But fear not, as we bring hope. Below we have listed three of the easiest plants to grow that even an amateur houseplant lover can make work.
The scientific name for this plant is Dracaena trifasciata. However, instead of figuring out how to pronounce that, we’ll just be calling it a snake plant. These plants are definitely one of the most tolerant plants with the most straightforward care instructions. Even if they are left without care for weeks, they will still look fresh. But maybe let’s not test this theory.
Snake plants should be kept in indirect sunlight and don’t need to be watered that often. Watering once every 10 days should be enough, as these plants flourish the best if they are a bit dried out between waterings. And one of the benefits of having a snake plant in your home is that it helps keep the air clean by removing toxins.
Also known by its scientific name, Philodendron hederaceum. These heart-shaped beauties are super eager to grow and climb. So you can either let them hang down from a basket or shelf or train them to climb up a moss pole. Either way, they will adapt and flourish.
This plant grows at its best in moderate to bright light, but not in direct sun. Remember to keep your plant’s leaves clean by wiping them down every now and then with a damp cloth. This is important because a layer of dust can block sunlight from coming through and stop the plant from photosynthesizing.
Zamioculcas zamiifolia, or ZZ plants, might just be the easiest plant to take care of. These plants basically thrive on neglect. All it needs is indirect light and infrequent watering. One important thing to note about these plants is that they are poisonous. So be sure to keep them out of reach of pets and children.
These plants are beautiful feature points in a room, with their straight, tall stems and bright green leaves. Overwatering is definitely the most common way of killing it. Since the ZZ plant is an African native, it is used to drought and survives by storing water in its stems.
All these plants can truly thrive with the best care. Now let your inner plant lady let loose and flourish with your plants.
