House Plants That Are Easy To Grow and Hard To Kill

I DO NOT, I repeat, DO NOT have a green thumb. I have a ton of plants in my house, but they are all really easy to grow and i rarely have to do anything with them or water them. Here’s a list of plants that you should buy if you’re a beginner or forget to water your plants like I do sometimes…

Pothos Plants - these plants are really pretty and i love hanging them in macrame plant hangers! They are also relatively cheap and they don’t require a lot of watering or upkeep. I’ve also propagated them with relative ease! You can simply take a clipping from the base of the a stem/leaf and put it in water and it will grow roots. You’ll never have to buy another one of these plants ever again!

Palm Plants - These require a little more water and sunlight, but as long as its near a window with a good amount of light they stay pretty healthy! They also can grow to be pretty big. I have one in the corner of our living room.

Staghorn - This is the coolest looking plant and you can even mount this plant on a piece of wood! It just needs to have it’s roots soaked in water about once a week. I just put mine in the sink and let is soak.

Snake Plant: This plant is a relatively low light plant and it also doesn’t require much watering, so in my book it’s literally the easiest plant to keep alive!

Succulents and Cacti: These require more sunlight, but very little watering and they’re so cute! My favorite is a jade plant.


If you’re interested in some further reading, I highly recommend this book, House of Plants. The photography is stunning and it goes in depth into common houseplants and how to care for them, common ailments, and even propagate them.
