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

    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!
