Add some life to your home with one of these low-maintenance plants:
This plant is widely renowned for being quick growing and easy to care for. The pothos is a vining plant so put it somewhere with room to grow. Let the soil dry out between waterings and keep the plant at stable room temperature. Pothos can thrive in many kinds of light, but for the best variegation on the leaves, it wants a lot of filtered sunlight as direct sun can cause the plant to burn.
A rubber plant can be kept as a small shrub or grown into an 8-foot tree for major impact. If you want to keep it short, prune any long stems that shoot up. The rubber plant prefers indirect light as it doesn’t like to get too hot. Keep it across the room from a large window. Keep the soil moist but not wet and clean the leaves every few months with a damp cloth.
Spider plants may not be the prettiest, but they are incredibly easy to take care of and make quite a statement. Popular back in the 70s, these plants have become trendy again in recent years. Keep the soil of a spider plant moist and give it bright to medium light. Display your spider plant in a hanging basket near a window for maximum impact.
The peace lily produces simple and beautiful flowers almost all year round. This plant is durable and can withstand periods without water. When a peace lily is thirsty, it will sag but perk up quickly after being watered. Keep the peace lily near a window where it will get a few hours a day of indirect sun. The plant can survive with less light but may not bloom. To encourage flowering, give the plant fertilizer about every 6 weeks.
For a plant that adds a bit of drama to your room, grab an English Ivy. This trailing plant is easy to care for and looks fantastic. Place it on a shelf to get the best effect from it. To care for the ivy keep the soil moist but not soaked and keep the room that doesn’t experience dramatic temperature fluctuation. Ivy’s like bright, filtered light so keep them in a room with a window.
Plants make a room look alive and can be a great conversation starter. Enjoy!
