So you’re not much of a gardener, eh? You couldn’t grow decent tomatoes if there were a million
dollar prize at stake, you’ve turned flowerbeds into graveyards…even your artificial plants turn
brown after a few weeks. It’s not that you’re unwilling or unintelligent, you’re just not very good
No worries. Not everyone is gifted with a natural inclination toward caregiving, but that doesn’t mean your hopes of an attractive indoor garden are completely unrealistic. Luckily, there are many
varieties of houseplant that even you stand a chance at successfully raising.
These plants will shrug off low light, dry air, mild caretaker incompetence and other less than ideal growing conditions while requiring next to nothing in the way of pruning or particular potting
This tiny, treelike plant makes a welcome addition to a room with its sturdy stalk and long narrow
leaves clustered at the top of the trunk. Ponytail palms are resistant to drought, so a skipped
watering will do little harm to it. In fact, the most common issue with these plants is overwatering,
making this a great choice for forgetful individuals.
Jade Plant is a common house plant chiefly consisting of woody branches adorned with shiny green
leaves that sometimes carry crimson accents. Jade plants tolerate heated environments well and
branches naturally, so it does not require pruning. They may even begin to flower in maturity with
clusters of star-shaped blooms, so the combination of low-maintenance and high beauty make it a
popular choice – You can learn more about such plants at Gaddys indoor plant hire.
Mother-In-Law’s Tongue/Snake Plant (Sanseviera)
This plant offers a simple display of stiff, swordlike green leaves, but its extreme durability, worthy of
either of its’ namesakes, makes it a good choice for gardeners with limited resources. Sanseviera
thrives in full sun as well as partial shade, prefers drier air and soil and will rarely, if ever, need
repotting. If you’re looking for low-maintenance, it doesn’t get much lower than this.
Devil’s Ivy/Golden Pothos
Perhaps the classic “easy houseplant,” it is well known for its long, trailing stems that can extend up
to 10 feet from the plant and its heart-shaped leaves. It grows very well under fluorescent lights,
making it a natural choice for indoor growing, and rebounds well from lack of watering, so it’s almost
never too late to water your plant.
Cacti represent one of the hardiest species of life on the planet, and so they make an excellent
choice for a maladroit gardener. A cactus thrives in an extreme environment such as a desert, is
regularly subjected to the driest air possible and grows tall and strong in nutrient-poor sand. They
should be able to survive your attempts at gardening as well.
Maintaining a house plant can be an enjoyable hobby, but when the plants actually stay alive, it’s
even better. While no house plant is totally invulnerable, the highly resilient nature of these plants
makes them ideal for a gardener new to the pursuit or well acquainted with failure within it.
