Don’t you like taking care of plants? No problem! There are also indoor plants for people with less green fingers. Suppose you would like to complement your house with the most beautiful green indoor plants. There is only one problem. You have anything but green fingers. You forget to water every week and the plant sprayer is certainly not in your cabinet.
Do you recognize yourself in this? Then we have some good news for you! There are several types of plants that require relatively little care.
Cacti and succulents
Okay, maybe a little obvious. The cactus. A super simple houseplant, for almost everyone. Just like succulents. The handy thing about a cactus and succulents is that they store water in their leaves. This means you don’t have to give them much water. Also in terms of location they are not difficult. As long as they get sunlight!
Perhaps the most famous Philodendron, the Monstera. And we understand why! With its heart-shaped leaves, this plant is an eye-catcher in any room. Fortunately, the Monstera, like other Philodendrons, is very easy to care for.
Once a week the Monstera expects a sip of water, and that’s all. Pitch? No direct sunlight and no full shade. Everything in between is fine with the Philodendron.
A spot by the sunny window, and once a week a splash of water. That’s about all for Ficus. Despite the beautifully large leaves, the plant needs very little. Maybe once in the summer some plant food, but that’s it.
You probably know this plant mainly by its healing properties. The juice of the Aloe Vera is used in various cosmetics and also aftersun cannot do without the Aloe Vera. And the plant has even more advantages! Did you already know that the Aloe Vera is also a succulent plant? This means that she needs little water. She simply stores this water in her leaves. Just as handy.
So in terms of water the Aloe Vera needs little. Once a month is sufficient. Also the location doesn’t have that many requirements. As long as it’s not in the shade. That shouldn’t be a problem, right?
If you say little maintenance, you’re talking about the Sansevieria. A houseplant that has been in the living room for years. And we have good news: the plant is back on the road again.
In winter, the Sansevieria can go for weeks without water. It’s best to let the soil dry up well. In terms of sunlight, the plant is not difficult either. Although the leaves will turn lighter when placed in a sunny spot.
A plant has few demands. Nevertheless, it prefers not to be in direct sunlight. Although it is important to keep the soil of a palm moist at all times. The soil of a palm is always moist in nature, and the plant would like to see this indoors as well.
Besides that little bit of water a week, a palm doesn’t need much. Simple? Yes, it is!
