3 Easy Houseplants to Keep Alive for Those Without a Green Thumb

Houseplants aren’t just good home decor, they’re also good for us. Unfortunately, unless you were born with a green thumb or have a passion for plants, it seems like keeping most houseplants alive can be a bit of a challenge.

That said, the plant world is known for its tenacity, and there are quite a few easy houseplants that are perfect for the less horticulturally inclined.

Are you ready to bring the outdoors into your home? Here are three low-effort houseplants you’ll have to work to kill.

1. Aloe

Are you looking for a low-effort plant that’s as functional as it is fashionable? Then look no further than the Aloe plant.

This spikey succulent can thrive in almost any environment and requires very little attention. Just pop it on any bright windowsill, give it a little water from time to time, and enjoy!

The best part about adding an aloe plant to your decor is that while they’re nice to look at, you can also enjoy their many health benefits. The gel inside the aloe leaves is excellent for treating burns and bug bites, and can even be used to make a healthy drink!

2. Snake Plant

If you’re looking for a plant that’s infamous for being nigh on impossible to kill, then you need a snake plant.

Aside from being real survivors, snake plants are famous for their striking upward reaching leaves and intricate marbling, making them one of the most stylish entries on this list. Snake plants thrive in a variety of different lighting and only require watering every few weeks, making them an excellent choice for forgetful plant owners.

Unfortunately, snake plants are also known for being toxic to people and pets. So, if you decide to bring one into your home make sure to keep it out of reach of inquisitive mouths.

3. Christmas Cactus

Are you looking for a houseplant that will live as long as you do? Then the Christmas cactus is the right choice for you. These festive cactuses can live for decades and produce beautiful blooms every midwinter, and all their caretaker needs to do is give them a little water when the soil gets dry.

These long-lasting, low-effort plants are an excellent way to add a pop of green to any room and also make for excellent gifts!
