I get asked all of the time, what kinds of houseplants are easy to care for and nice to use in my home? Well, here are 4 easy to care for houseplants you’re going to love! Having plants in your home will make your space feel more alive, duh – and will make the space cozier. Research says you’ll also be a happier person surrounding yourself with some indoor nature! So here they are!
Featured above. I love this plant! It is so easy to care for and it brings so much green into my living space! I have it propped up on a short table and a woven basket because the pot is fairly large.
The Schefflera prefers bright, indirect light. It also likes a lot of humidity, so you can spritz this plant often if you want to – I personally don’t.
I water my Schefflera weekly and keep track of when the soil looks dry.
This plant is poisonous, so if your indoor animals tend to eat plants, this one is not for you! Keep away from dry heating vents. You can fertilize your Schefflera every other watering or use slow-release fertilizer you can sprinkle on the soil surface. Don’t move this houseplant outside in the Winter time. This is a tropical plant that likes humid conditions.
Featured above. This is a great plant if you want that impact look as it will take up a lot of real estate in any room. I’ve upgraded this plant into a woven basket since photographed, but as you can see I use a clear liner with all of my plants to prevent water spilling out onto my furniture. If there is too much water it’s also a great way to check as the reservoir will be full.
The Philodendron prefers bright, indirect light. I have this guy in my living room where he gets plenty of sun.
Phildodendrons like moist soil. Again, a tropical plant so keep away from cold weather in the Winter. This guy likes more water than my Schefflera.
This plant is poisonous, so if your indoor animals tend to eat plants, this one is not for you!
Featured on Left. I have 3 of these in my home right now because they are my FAVORITE low maintenance plants. With their dark leaves and tall stalks, I love the amount of green and height they bring into my space!
The Dracaena will grow slow and can grow in low light – which is perfect for a lot of homes.
Dracaenas like good draining soil, and do not like to be watered often – another reason why I love this plant!
This plant is slightly poisonous, so if your indoor animals tend to eat plants, this one is not for you! This particular variety is called ‘Janet Craig.’ These guys need very little fertilizer to keep happy.
Hopefully this post inspires you to bring some live plants into your living space! It’s worth a gamble to keep them alive and they will become like your little pets! If you have any plant related questions, feel free to drop me a message!!
