13 Super easy House Plants – Anybody can grow

Not everyone has a natural green thumb, but that’s ok because there are plenty of hard-to-kill houseplants that come to the rescue when you want to add some greenery to your home. While most houseplants require a bit of effort in providing appropriate growing conditions (light, temperature, humidity, etc.). These sturdy beauties can handle a little neglect.

     1. Chinese evergreen (Aglaonema commutatum)

Growing Chinese evergreens can make even the novice indoor gardener look like an expert. This tropical foliage plant is one of the most durable houseplants you can grow, tolerating poor light, dry air, and drought. These plants are slow-growing and make excellent indoor foliage plants that can be potted and cared for year-round.

     2. Lucky bamboo (Dracaena sanderiana)

These sculptural plants, with eye-catching shapes, swirls, or braided stalks, can frequently be spotted in offices, businesses, homes, and on desks for good Feng shui. It’s a symbol of luck and prosperity making it a common gift and the perfect small house plant. Another factor that makes lucky bamboo so popular is its ability to be trained into shapes like a swirl, heart, braid and other designs.

       3. Pothos (Epipremnum aureum):

The pothos is the plant for you! Nearly foolproof even for beginners, Pothos is forgiving of neglect, virtually pest- and disease-free, and is a great low-light indoor plant perfect for darker rooms and offices. The long stems trail or climb by aerial roots that adhere to surfaces, making this a versatile choice for hanging baskets, plant stands, and bookshelves. Best of all, pothos is one of the top houseplants for improving indoor air quality, making home and office environments cleaner.

       4. Air plant (Tillandsia)

Air plants are resilient little plants that don’t require soil and can survive for an extended period without water. However, eventually, they do need water. They prefer bright, filtered light and warm temperatures.

       5. Chinese money plant (Pilea peperomioides)

The Chinese money plant (or Pilea) is frequently featured in Scandinavian interiors, where it’s bright green pancake-shaped leaves provide an adorable and welcome burst of color against white walls. This remarkable little plant is a true beauty. With its rounded dark green leaves, perfectly shaped to add a bit of interest to your indoor jungle.

       6. Spider plant (Chlorophytum comosum)

The Spider plant is among the most adaptable houseplants, and is very easy to grow. A graceful plant that makes a statement anywhere—from a tabletop to a mantle or with its lovely arching leaves as a hanging plant. When grown indoors, these warm-weather perennials will survive less-than-perfect conditions, and they are stunning if you can closely mimic their native tropical environment by providing warm temperatures and humid air.

       7. Rubber plant (Ficus elastica)

This tree-like houseplant features large, deep-green leaves, and it can be the perfect focal piece for any space. Starting with a young rubber tree houseplant will allow it to adapt to being an indoor plant better than starting with a more mature plant.

       8. Split-leaf philodendron (Monstera deliciosa)

The split-leaf philodendron (aka Monstera plant) will grow in low light, but it will grow faster and form better split foliage in a spot with bright, indirect light. Monstera should only be watered just enough to keep the soil from completely drying out.

       9. Mother-in-law’s tongue (Dracaena trifasciata, formerly sansevieria)

The snake plant is one of those plants known for both looking good and improving air quality. Snake plants are often used as home decor since they’re pleasing to the eye, are easy to care for, and require little water to survive. A Sansevieria plant can be used as a table plant when small, or a stately floor plant as it mature.

      10. Dragon tree (Dracaena marginata)

Thanks to its tolerance for a wide range of temperatures, dragon trees are very popular as large potted plants for homes and offices. They should be planted in well-draining soil and watered regularly during their growing season.

       11. ZZ (Zamiifolia zamioculcas)

ZZ plant, with its wide, attractive, dark green leaves, boasts many favorable traits for offices and homes. This virtually indestructible houseplant can take months and months of neglect and low light and still look amazing. ZZ plant stems grow in a graceful, wand-like shape that starts thick and bulbous at the base and then tapers to a point.

      12. Dumbcane (Dieffenbachia)

The plant gets its common name from the temporary speechlessness that occurs after chewing a piece of the stem. Yes, that means dieffenbachia is toxic to humans and animals. However, it features large, showy foliage that will make a beautiful statement in your home.

       13. Moth orchid (Phalaenopsis orchid)

By far the most popular orchid for houseplant lovers, this surprisingly hard-to-kill plant produces large, colorful blooms that last for weeks. It is possible to get them to re-bloom with proper light, watering, and fertilizer. Most of the time, these orchids are sold in a cache pot. Remove it and soak the medium every week but don’t let it stand in water.
