5 Easy to Care For Houseplants for New Homeowners
Succulents are some of the easiest plants to grow and keep alive. They are hardy, low-maintenance, and thrive in dry, indoor areas. They do like a lot of light, so keep them close to a window or even put them outside during the summer months. There are so many succulent plants that you can plant a variety to enjoy different colors and looks. Water them every so often and enjoy!
Fun Fact! Succulents are almost as popular as roses and orchids.
2. Aloe Vera
Aloe Vera plants are spiky looking with green stocks and colorful flowers. These plants do not need direct sunlight and only need water every couple of weeks. Keep them on the dryer side and they will flourish!
Fun Fact! Aloe Vera plants have juice inside them that can help relieve pain from scratches and burns. Healthline says, “Aloe vera is a tropical medicinal plant that has been used for thousands of years to treat skin conditions, such as wounds and burns. Aloe vera is so effective at soothing burns that it’s sometimes referred to as the “burn plant.”
3. Snake Plant
Also known as Sansevieria, these plants truly are an easy-care plant. They do not need much water, only about once a week. The soil needs to drain completely before the next watering and it should never be saturated. It can thrive in light, medium, or bright sunlight making this plant versatile to any living situation. These plants have a little bit of a scaly look to them, like a snake.
Fun Fact! This plant is actually good for your health! It reduces stress, improves moods and creativity, and removes pollutants from your home. So, basically a beautiful air filtration system – count me in!!
The Chinese Evergreen is easy to grow, but quite beautiful too! There nickname is Dumb Cane. I highly recommend the Chinese Evergreen to any new homeowners. The green and silver tinted leaves flourish with little to medium light and water every couple of weeks. They do not even need sunlight, so rooms with smaller windows and overhead lights can be a perfect place for these plants.
Fun Fact! The Chinese Evergreen will last for many years, growing slowly.
Pothos Ivy plants can live in bright or low-light spaces. Let the soil dry completely between waterings but give them a lot of water each time. This plant can grow long like typical ivy and spread throughout your space. The bright green color adds a great outdoor feel, without having to be outdoors.
Fun Fact! These plants have heart-shaped leaves to add a little extra sweetness to the plant.
