There’s no easier way to bring some life into your home than to add in some beautiful greenery! And let’s face it, we could all use a little touch of nature in our homes right now as we’re stuck inside. Since we’re already mourning the loss of our social lives, we don’t need to add the grief of having one of our plants die, so here’s our favorite houseplants that are easy to take care of. Happy house planting y’all!
Nothing makes your home feel more like an oasis than bringing in a mini palm tree! If you’re looking for a tropical touch or a California casual look, this palm is an excellent choice. Not to mention, it acts as an air purifier and humidifier so you’re getting more than just a cute piece of decor out of it! This plant is very easy to grow indoors, as it can survive without lots of sunlight. The Areca Palm is a huge lover of moisture, so try to water it regularly. But it can handle some neglect if you forget to water it for a few days.
The ZZ plant, short for Zamioculcas Zamiifolia (because no one wants to try to pronounce that name) is almost impossible to kill. The ZZ plant can survive in both sunlight and complete darkness, making it one of our go-tos for any space that needs some greenery. You only need to water this plant every few weeks, but be sure that the soil is dry before you water it.
Weeping Fig Tree
Despite the bummer of a name, this tree is bound to bring some life into your home! The Weeping Fig Tree tends to grow into a medium-sized plant, making it a great option to use in your living room, bedroom, or an empty corner in your home that needs some love. All this beauty needs to stand tall and firm is a little bit of sunlight, an occasional trim, and a weekly watering.
The Monstera, also known as the “Swiss Cheese Plant” because of the holes in its leaves, is a perfect choice if you’re looking for a bolder, vibrant houseplant. This plant can survive in all levels of sunlight, and even fluorescent lights, which is great for indoor spaces that don’t get a lot of natural light. This gem not only adds a beautiful pop of color to any room, but it also serves as a natural air purifier – win win! The Monstera needs to be watered regularly, but will still hold up if you miss a watering or two
Fiddle Leaf Fig
The Fiddle Leaf Fig is one of our go-tos for projects and even our own office! It works great in almost any room because of its tall, medium-sized shape. It grows tall so it doesn’t take up a lot of floor space but still stands tall and adds a bold touch, which is perfect for small spaces such as apartments and empty corners in a home. I recommend placing your Fiddle Leaf in a spot that gets medium light, and only water it when the soil feels dry.
Hence the name, this plant’s leaves resemble that of an elephant’s ear and have a very relaxed, tropical appearance. This plant can burn easily in the sun, so it’s a great option for those darker spaces in your home that need a little life! This is a good plant for beginners, since it only needs to be watered every 5-10 days.
This succulent is perfect for a first time plant parent, as it only needs to be watered just once a month and can go weeks without care and still feel firm. The only issue this plant can face is root rot, which can occur from overwatering. We have a snake plant at our office and it really brings some life into the room! And I can say from my experience with taking care of a Snake Plant, this plant literally won’t die. I’ll honestly be impressed if you manage to kill this plant, but please don’t try.
