Houseplants aren’t for everyone. Some people can spend hours taking care of their plants, while some people just can’t remember to water the plants. Some people would like to try to grow plants, but they don’t know where to start or which plants actually look nice and would be super easy and something that anyone could take care of. Luckily, there are such plants. Some plants, if you forget to water them for a couple days, or even a week will do fine. Let’s look at some of the easiest houseplants to take care of and grow.
The cast iron plant is a great plant to get started with. It will grow outside in the shade, and like low light. It sometimes will bloom flowers when it is indoors, and has leaves that are pointed and short.
Snake plant or Mother-in-law’s tongue is another plant that does well without much care. It has long and pointed leaves that are sharp. They also like low light and only need a very small amount of water. You actually only need to water it a few times during the winter.
Christmas cactus is a cactus that has red and pink flowers. It is fine with low light but if you want more flowers, it needs to have more light. It is fine in lower temperature and can bloom through December.
Pathos plants are ones that will continuously grow. They can be pruned or not. They are fine in low light or fluorescent lights. They do need to be watered often, but if they aren’t watered for a long time the leaves will fall off after they become very dry, but the leaves will come back.
Baby rubber plants help to make the air more pure. Like most plants do, they help to create more oxygen and clean the air. They can be watered hardly at all and even are perfectly fine if only watered once a week.
Chinese evergreen plants are fine in low light. They also hardly need much water. They also like cool temperatures.
