Indoor plants is a great way to get started with gardening. Caring for pothos plants is very easy and undemanding as they enjoy a wide variety of environments. They flourish under bright light as well as low light. You can grow them in dry soil or in vases of water. Nutritious soil is always better but these plants do almost as well in nutrient-deficient soil.
They make a classy addition to your bathroom or office as they can grow under low-light conditions. However, one thing to keep in mind is that they don’t like direct sunlight.
Commonly called the “Chinese Evergreen”, this plant is a favorite amongst houseplant lovers. It has unique foliage, and it’s also very versatile. They thrive in almost all home and office spaces. The plant is native to the tropical forest floors of Asia and appreciates indirect light. Direct sunlight tends to scorch its leaves. This is one of the very few plants that can tolerate even fluorescent lighting conditions. However, keeping it at a distance of a few feet from a well-lit window is ideal.
Jade plants were the trend of the 1970s. They were absolutely everywhere because they are some of the easiest plants to grow. The Jade plant will thrive under the brightest spot in your house. It can handle direct sunlight which tends to sunburn most other houseplants. Do keep them away from windy and drafty areas of your house as these indoor plants absolutely hate the cold.
Are you in love with your Jade plant and want more of them? You’re in luck because these plants are very easy to multiply. Just break off a piece, cut out the lower leaves, and let the bottom dry out for a couple of days. Stick it in some potting mix and watch the magic happen. You can even gift this to a friend!
Hailing from the southwestern deserts, Yucca plants are extremely resilient. They grow slowly but need almost no maintenance to survive. All they need is a sturdy pot with decent drainage and some sun. Even during the summer, you’ll only have to water them once a week. And during the winters, they require absolutely minimal amounts of water. The spineless varieties of the Yucca such as Y.elephantipes are popular houseplants seen in many homes. Their leaves are sharp but not as sharp as other outdoor Yucca varieties.
The spider plant is one of the most adaptable and easiest to grow, especially indoors. They can flourish under a wide range of conditions. Its name comes from its spider-like nature because its leaves dangle down from the mother plant like a spider’s legs. Available in many varieties, these plants often start out as small white flowers. Caring for these plants is very easy as they can tolerate lots of abuse making them an excellent choice for beginners. Well-drained soil and indirect bright light are all they need to flourish.
