Easy to Care For House Plants

"Check out these easy to care for houseplants that are hard to kill and you’ll see that there’s an indoor plant out there for everyone—whether you have a green thumb or not!"

Monstera

Adaptable to almost all light conditions, and somewhat drought tolerant, the Monstera is a low maintenance, stunning tropical plant.



Look out for: Crispy leaves mean the plant is getting sunburned or it’s not getting enough water, yellow leaves mean too much water. But don’t worry, Monsteras are incredibly forgiving and bounce back quickly!



Sansevieria AKA the Snake Plant

This hardy plant will do just fine in any type of light from low light areas to bright, full sun. Sansevieria don’t need a lot of water, are not sensitive to temperature changes, and don’t require any additional care. They are also highly-sought after for their air-purifying properties.



Look out for: Yellow, drooping leaves and funny smell, which could indicate overwatering.

Zamioculcas AKA the ZZ Plant

Virtually indestructible, the ZZ Plant will do best if you basically ignore it. It thrives in areas where many plants don’t, making it one of the best office plants or bathroom plants. The ZZ Plant requires very little water and prefers to be kept on the dry side.


Look out for: Yellow leaves mean the plant is getting too much water.




Spider Plant

This plant will do best in bright, indirect sunlight, and will tolerate low light areas where other plants might not thrive.  Water your Spider Plant when the top 2-inches of soil are dry and it will be perfectly happy in your home.



Look out for: Drooping can be a sign of underwatering while yellow or soft, brown leaves can be a sign of overwatering.

Philodendron Heartleaf

This adaptable plant thrives in indirect light and actually suffers if exposed to bright sunlight. It likes to be consistently watered, but is very forgiving if you forget to water it once in a while.


Look out for: Yellowing leaves indicate overwatering.










Hedgehog Aloe

A cousin to the Aloe Vera, the Hedgehog Aloe plant needs a sunny spot in your home and can even be kept outside during the Summer. This low maintenance plant requires very little water, making it very easy to care for.



Look out for: Wilting leaves in the summer mean under-watering, yellowing leaves probably mean overwatering.

These are just a few easy to care for plants. I hope this encourages you to become a #plantmom or #plantdad! Which is your favorite?!
