Are you looking for a simple way to spruce up your space? Maybe a method that adds color and freshness? Then, I have just the thing for you…HOUSEPLANTS! But don’t worry, you don’t have to have a green thumb to add these to your home. This is the ultimate list of low-maintenance houseplants you need to get started.

Plants are an easy way to bring life into a space without much work. Besides being appealing to the eye, they are very beneficial for your health. Some of the benefits include…

  • Air purifying
  • Provide oxygen
  • Lower stress
  • Reduce pain
  • Help with productivity

I have enjoyed going to different garden centers and finding unique plants. There are a select few plants that everyone has and knows about. It is exciting to find unique plants. There are opportunities to get creative like painting you’re pots. They are also a great way to begin taking care of something without any repercussions.

Once you keep a plant alive, you get a little boost of confidence. 

 Now here are some low-maintenance houseplants that anyone can keep alive. 

5 Low-Maintenance Houseplants To Freshen Up Your Space

Snake Plant

  • Water every 2-3 weeks – DO NOT overwater
  • Bright indirect sunlight – it can grow in any lighting…this is just its preference
  • Keep away from animals

*Most plants release oxygen during the day, but a little fun fact is that this plant releases oxygen during the night. It is one of the best air-purifying plants!

Philodendron

  • Indirect sunlight – lots of yellow leaves means too much sunlight
  • Medium amount of water – once top inch of soil is dry water it again
  • Keep away from animals

*I have forgotten to water my plant many times, and it is still very healthy and continues to grow. Philodendrons are a simple plant.

Chinese Money Plant

  • Bright indirect sunlight
  • Rotate weekly – this will prevent it from growing lopsided
  • Soil should be mostly dried between waterings – if the leaves droop that is a sign it needs to be watered
  • Needs drainage holes in pot

* I have a Chinese Money plant and I have had so many little plantlets grow from it. They are great gifts, and this plant is somewhat rare to find in garden centers.

ZZ Plant

  • Water every 2-3 weeks – the soil should dry out between waterings
  • Needs a well draining pot
  • Medium to low indirect sunlight
  • Keep away from animals

*The leaves will tell you a lot. If they are wilting it is being under-watered, and if the leaves are yellow and the plant gets mushy that means the roots are rotting.

Monstera

  • Medium to bright indirect sunlight
  • Water it every 1-2 weeks – let the soil dry out between waterings
  • Keep away from animals

*If the leaves turn brown or wilt, that is a sign it needs water. Yellow leaves mean it is being overwatered.


All of these plants can survive with little water and sunlight. Although I do schedule watering dates inside my Nourished Planner – just so I don’t neglect them completely. Even though they are pretty forgiving if you miss a watering or two. You will be able to tell what these plants need by their leaves and the coloring.

You won’t regret adding a little more life to your space.
