5 Best Houseplants That Don’t Require a Green Thumb

by Erin

Houseplants for indoor decor that don't require a green thumb

The addition of live greenery in your space is the perfect way to wake up your home’s interior. Like many, you may be afraid to take the leap of becoming a plant parent. Not everyone has a green thumb, but many plants do not require much attention at all and will make a big impact on a room’s overall look. If you have ever felt that you have a black thumb when it comes to caring for plant life, now is the best time to try your hand at it again. Being home while social distancing allows for more time to learn about and tend to the plants that you love. So here are a few suggestions of the best houseplants that don’t require a green thumb. 

 

Pothos

 

The pothos also known as the devil’s ivy can help purify the air in your home. It only requires medium to low lighting and can stand drying out now and again. Its leaves are shaped like hearts and come in a wide range of shades such as gold, cream, silver, or white.

 

Spider Plant

 

The spider plant is another house plan that doesn’t require much to keep alive. This plant can survive in low to medium natural or artificial lighting. Its roots are thick and store moisture so you won’t have to worry about watering too often. 

 

Snake Plant

 

The snake plant is a popular favorite for plant moms and plant dads. Also known as the mother-in-law’s tongue, the snake plant is probably one of the easiest plants to take care of and the easiest to grow. You can sit this plant in indirect sunlight and only water once the soil is completely dried out. Sounds simple right?!

 

 

ZZ Plant

 

This plant holds up pretty well on its own. It only requires you to water it once a week and can be kept in either low lighting or direct sunlight. It will grow much faster when exposed to more light but this plant thrives wherever you decide to place it. Its leaves are thick and rubbery and its roots are thick as well so it's tough enough for even a black thumb. 

 

Purchasing plants from a distance

 

We know that plant buying can be a little difficult during this time as this type of shopping would not be considered essential. There are a few online companies like Bloomscape and The Sill that make purchasing plants easy while practicing social distancing. You can sign up for a subscription to receive a plant each month or buy as you feel inspired to do so.th

 

Find solitude in caring for green life during this time of isolation all while sprucing up the overall look of your home. You may not be able to maintain a full garden, but taking care of a few house plants will have you on your way.
