7 House Plants that are Easy to Maintain and Keep Alive

My green thumb is actually quite small. Like really really small. I’ve never been able to keep plants alive. Until recently, when I realized that some house plants are easier to keep alive then others. When it comes to gardening, plants and all things green and living I am for sure still learning.

I married a man that grew up on a flower farm and knows wayyyyy more about flowers and plants than I do. I’ve come along way since the first day we met and I accidentally called his families daffodil farm a dandelion farm (awkward). I’ve come along way since my beginner days, and have a few favourite plants that I own multiples of.

Myself and Keisha from Loving Littles Blog have teamed up to each share a small handful of house plants for beginners. You can find three on my page and the other four on her post: 7 Plants Even You Can’t Kill

I really hope you enjoy and are inspired to bring some greenery into your home.

7 House Plants that are Easy to Maintain and Keep Alive | For Beginners

  1. Snake Plant [ Sansevieria ]
    7 House Plants that are Easy to Maintain and Keep AliveThis has to be my favorite plant. It’s also the longest living plant that I own. Which means a lot because I got my first Snake Plant when I still knew hardly anything about plants. Like how I left my first one in my office with a closed blind and forgot to water it for months. Oops. But needless to say, the Snake Plant wins at being amazing and so so easy to maintain. If you are looking at a plant to start with, this is your best bet! It is actually better for these plants if you let them dry out a little in between watering, so don’t feel bad if when you do forget about them.

    Note: I have heard that these are poisonous so make sure if you have kids or pets they don’t eat them.

     

  2. ZZ Plant [ Zamioculcas Zamifolia ]

    7 House Plants that are Easy to Maintain and Keep Alive

    A few months ago I bought my first ZZ Plant and have been so happy with it. I have this one in indirect sunlight, though a bit more than my snake plant and find that it does really well. With a watering once a week(sometimes not even) it is thriving. This plant, like the Snake Plant, also does well if you let the soil dry between watering. This would make the perfect gift for someone who is wanting to bring more greenery into their home but doesn’t quite have a green thumb, yet.

  3. Dracaena Marginata

    7 House Plants that are Easy to Keep Alive

    Unlike the other two house plants the Dracaena Marginata has colouring on the leaves. This plant has a more tropical feel and is a great statement piece within a room. The leaves span a large width and are firm. Unlike the other two you do not want the soil to dry on these plants. With indirect sunlight (lowlight home) and some regular watering you should be in the clear to keep this baby alive too!

  • Getting new frames soon and want to hear what you all think. I picked out my top three styles and want to put it to a vote. Comment below which pair you like the best (swipe left to see all three)

I’m sharing all the details about my recent experience at @irisvisualgroup on the blog. Talking about what it was like going in with the girls, what age you should first bring your kids and what I’m going to start using during soccer games. Can you believe I have been playing half blind? Link in bio ( there's also more images of the three styles if you want to see before you vote). #ad #irisvisualgroup
  • Tomorrow starts the first full week of kindergarten for that confident girl on the right. I didn’t realize how emotional I was about the whole thing, until her first full day and I was basically a big giant mess. Here’s to hoping I can hold it together.
  • Overwhelmed by the number of you that responded to my stories today. Parenting is hard. Some days so much harder than others. The good thing is, we don’t have to do it alone. When we open up and share (like I did this morning to someone I’ve only met a few times) we give ourselves an opportunity to learn and grow. My hope for all of you is that through your journey, you constantly seek, grow and share. It makes a difference.
  • Drove out to @centralcitysurrey tonight with this girl. Lots of laughs as we tried on our five looks for this Friday’s fashion show! Say what!?
•
There’s going to be six of us walking the runway from 12:00 - 1:30 PM, plus tons of other activities happening right by the food court ($500 mall giveaway draw, selfie station, beauty demos and more) — come on out and cheer us on

  • I made simple syrup for the first time at home and two things:
1. DANG that's good!
2. It's WAYYYY easier then I anticipated
•
After cruising a handful of different simple syrup recipes online I combined a few that I thought would work, reduced the sugar and substituted cream of tartar for lemon juice. For some reason I never like to follow the directions the first time and always like to try out my own... it doesn't always work out, but this time it sure did!! You can see more of the steps in my stories for how to make your own simple syrup and sparkling water using the new @sodastreamcanada FIZZI One Touch at home. I always love when things turn out easier than expected! Does anyone want the full recipe on the blog?

  • But seriously. All summer I told myself I was going to start continually making better choices to eat better and exercise.... that didn’t happen.
•
Tomorrow I’m starting an 8 week program to get my butt in gear. I took my measurements and weight to track where I started from. I don’t have a scale so often don’t see that number. My eyes nearly popped out of my head, I’m at the heaviest I’ve ever been (even through both pregnancies) and can definitely feel it in daily life. Tired. Sluggish. Unmotivated.
