Indoor plants can be a great addition to your home, even if you're a beginner
Important: don't overwater any plant (a common beginner mistake). Moist plants tend to breed gnats, a problem you do not want to create or have to deal with.
Snake Plant: Virtually indestructible. Tolerate low-light and infrequent watering but prefer bright indirect light. Grows tall but not wide, and is great for air purification.
Spider Plant: Spider plants are known for their air-purifying properties and adaptability. They're very low maintenance and thrive in moderate light conditions.
Pothos: Pothos is a trailing vine that's very forgiving. It can handle low light and irregular watering. A popular choice for beginners.
Bromeliad - (shown in photo above) - bright happy flower nestled in rich green leaves is easy to care for. Simply add water to the 'vase' in the very middle of the plant and add more only as needed. If plant is looking droopy add a small amount of water to the planting soil.
ZZ Plant: ZZ plants are extremely hardy and can thrive in low light. They require minimal watering and are great for forgetful caretakers.
Peace Lily: Peace lilies are known for their elegant white blooms. Prefer moderate indirect light and like to be kept consistently moist but not waterlogged.
Aloe Vera: Aloe vera is not only a decorative plant but also has healing properties for skin. It prefers bright, indirect light and should be allowed to dry out between waterings.
Succulents: Various types of succulents, like Echeveria and Jade Plants, are easy to care for. They thrive in bright light and require infrequent watering. Be sure to use well-draining soil.
Rubber Plant: Tolerate low to moderate light and prefer to dry out between waterings. They can grow tall and make a bold statement in a room.
Chinese Evergreen: Low-maintenance and will tolerate low light conditions. They come in various attractive leaf patterns.
Cast Iron Plant: As the name suggests, these plants are incredibly tough and can handle low light and infrequent watering.
Always ensure that your pots have drainage holes, use high-quality potting mix, and avoid overwatering, as that's a common mistake for beginners (breeds gnats and isn't good for the plant).
A moisture meter is a must-have tool for all gardeners indoors and out! Purchase inexpensive plant moisture meters at any garden center. Some come as two-packs (convenient for checking the plants in different rooms of the house).
