7 Houseplants you need to have as a first-time plant owner

Think you kill whatever you touch? Well, you can’t go wrong with these plants!

Truth be told, there is no such thing as indoor plants because as we all know, they need the natural light and air. That being said, there are some plants that can survive extreme weathers and thrive in artificial light. And those are the ones best for people who are hesitant to own a plant thinking it can be easily killed.

So here’s a list of some plants you can keep in your houses and let them beautify and purify your house...

  1. Snake Plant – This is probably always the first option for people who want to add some aesthetic but also forget to water their plants. There are over 70 species in this family but ‘mother-in-law’s tongue’ is the most popular one. They can grow in low light and need to be watered only occasionally.
  2. Spider Plant – Another popular house plant, you can hang them in small baskets, and they will look extremely cute! Keep them in a bright spot with slight moisture in the soil, and you’re good to go!
  3. Peace Lily – Easiest to grow and pleasant to look at, the peace lily needs very little watering. It is known to purify the air and can adjust to extreme lighting conditions.
  4. Succulents and cactus – the reason we have clubbed these two together is because they have almost the same growing conditions. Place these in a moderately lit spot and forget about it! Watering needed is very less so you won’t have to worry about them dying!
  5. Lucky Bamboo – Whether you want one for astrology purpose or just for the sake of fashion, lucky bamboo is known for its purifying and calming qualities. Provide it with an abundance of water, and you’ll see these babies grow beautifully.
  6. ZZ Plant – These plants are tough as hell and can survive anything from drought to low light conditions. You can fertilise if you wish but needless to say, these plants will survive and even grow baby ZZ plants all-year-round!
  7. Pothos – Also known as Devil’s Ivy, these plants can happily live without much light or water. They can be hung in pots or even grown in glass bottles! Forget about pruning them, and soon you will see that they will not stop growing.
Apart from these, you can also put Aloe Vera plant or Air plants in your houses. Keeping these will help you breathe easier as they are known to purify the air. So what are you waiting for? Go adopt or shop for a plant baby right now!
