6 Easy to Grow Plants for Beginners

A great way to bring a little bit of nature into your home is with some beautiful, lush, green houseplants. If you’re afraid that you might not be able to take care of them, don’t worry. We’ve listed here for you the top six indoor plants that are the easiest to grow and the hardest to kill. Pick from the list and enjoy the many benefits of having plants around you. 

Best Beginner Friendly Plants

Pothos (Devil’s Ivy)

Pothos is an attractive trailing vine plant with medium-sized leaves that are dark green or yellow and green variegated. They look best on top of a tall bookshelf or in a hanging planter. They are hard to kill and can tolerate nearly any type of growing environment. They can also hand infrequent waterings for those who sometimes forget to water their plants. For your pothos to thrive, place in indirect medium light and water once every one to two weeks.

Snake Plant

This striking plant has stiff, lengthy vertical leaves with pointed ends. The leaves are dark green with margins of bright yellow. They also come in green and yellow variegated patterns. The Snake Plant, also called the Mother-in-Law’s Tongue, is very resilient and hard to kill. It can handle low light or bright light and a spotty watering schedule. The Snake Plant is a great air purifier as it converts CO2 into oxygen during the night.

Monstera (Swiss Cheese Plant)

For a plant that has a bit of drama, pick up a Mostera, also known as Swiss Cheese Plant due to the unusual holes in the leaves. Large, glossy green leaves give off a very lush, tropical vibe. This plant is easy to manage and requires very little maintenance. Although, it can growt rather large but it’s easy to prune. Just place in a spot that gets indirect bright light and water once a week during spring and summer. Every other week during the fall and winter is fine.

Spider Plant

One of the more popular house plants, spider plants are festive, full, fun plants that are tough to kill. Their long, thin leaves hang gracefully over their pot which makes them perfect for hanging planters. They can tolerate most lighting conditions and infrequent waterings. When they grow they make quite a few spider “babies” that can be planted in pots and grow to maturity. Just place this plant in a bright spot and keep the soil moist and it will thrive.

Peace Lily

Easy to grow indoors, the Peace Lily, is a lush, full plant with curving, rich green leaves. They will surprise you by blooming a beautiful white flower when you least expect it. Exoitc and elegant, the Peace Lily also filters toxins in the air. They enjoy moist soil and bright, indirect light. Keep pets and kids away though as this plant is toxic to them.

Jade Plant

A great plant for beginners, the Jade Plant, which is a succulent, grows easily and is not very demanding. Its thick, dark green, waxy leaves retain water so it can go a while between waterings. The Jade Plant can also grow to large size so prune accordingly. Place in full sun and water only when the soil feels dry for this beauty to thrive.
