Houseplants have so much going for them. They purify the air, they raise your mood and of course they make your home look insta-perfect! If you’re looking to get into growing houseplants, then you’re in luck. In this blog post, I want to share the 10 best indoor houseplants to grow for beginners. These plants are easy to grow and perfect for beginners. So, whether you’re a seasoned plant parent or just starting out, these plants are sure to give you some success!
Golden Pothos (Epipremnum aureum)
Golden pothos, a highly attractive and easy-to-grow hanging plant, has numerous benefits. Golden pothos grows into a tree-swallowing monster with enormous yellow and green leaves in its natural habitat.
As a houseplant, the plant will develop fast and requires little attention. It can also rapidly root in a single glass of water with minimal effort. Large, mottled, mature leaves may form under good care.
Spider Plant (Chlorophytum comosum)
A healthy spider plant is a stunning sight. The plant thrives well in baskets or on columns with long, thin, arching leaves. By far the most prevalent variety is the variegated one.
A mature plant may produce plantlets, or offsets, on long stems and create a stunning hanging display over time. These plantlets can be simply transplanted to generate new specimens. Spider plants require little care and water.
Snake Plant (Dracaena trifasciata)
The most noticeable feature of sword-like leaves is their green on green bands. They are highly durable, too. They prefer light, but they can live in low-light situations.
They aren’t picky about water, as long as it isn’t overly wet. They are also comfortable in an office setting. The main clump may easily be divided when repotting is required.
Dragon Tree (Dracaena marginata)
Dragon trees are a dream for every grower. They’re wonderfully simple to maintain and can live in a wide range of temperatures and conditions. The leaves on these plants are shaped like swords with red edges that arise from a woody stem.
Dragon trees grow to a height of around 6 feet as houseplants, though in their natural habitat they may reach 20 feet tall. Fertilizer requirements are modest. When the soil is quite dry, just water it gently.
Moon Cactus (Gymnocalycium mihanovichii)
The moon cactus requires only a little water and may tolerate less light than many other cacti varieties. It also doesn’t require a lot of fertilizer. Make sure it’s in a container with adequate drainage holes and fast-draining soil, and it’ll be fine.
Water only when the earth is almost dry; overwatering may lead to rot and other issues.
Bromeliads (Bromeliaceae spp.)
The reputation of bromeliads has taken a hit, possibly because it takes a lot of patience to get them to bloom. Although it is true that growing these jungle plants in the home is a difficult task, Succulents are a special variety of cacti that thrive in arid regions.
They require lots of heat, water, and high humidity, as well as filtered light. However, many species have lovely leaves that are beautiful on their own. The central cup is generally filled when watering bromeliads.
They don’t require much fertilizer. These can also be repotted to expand your collection if pups appear around the base of the plant.
Lucky Bamboo (Dracaena sanderiana)
The lucky bamboo (Dracaena marginata) is a semi-evergreen, trailing bamboo. Untold pots of these survive in harsh situations such as infrequent watering with poor lighting and bad air quality.
They may be beautiful gifts, and many people think they improve the chi, or energy, of their environments.
Fishbone Cactus (Disocactus anguliger)
The fishbone cactus has one of the weirdest plant profiles imaginable: its wavy, toothed stems are angled and toothlike. It’s a tropical species that can tolerate more humidity and less sunshine than typical desert cacti.
Water it when the top 2 inches of soil have dried out and provide bright, indirect light.
Aloe (Aloe vera)
Aloe plants are drought-tolerant succulents, which means they will not be harmed if you do not water them. So it won’t mind if you forget to water it. Its long, thin, sword-like leaves should fill out once more after you water them.
It also doesn’t require much fertilizer. However, you should position it by a window with bright, indirect light. Also, make sure the container and soil drain properly.
Cast Iron Plant (Aspidistra elatior)
The cast iron plant is as hardy as its name implies. It can endure a lot of neglect, including limited light and uneven watering, yet it still looks fantastic. The plant has large, dark green glossy leaves.
It does flower outdoors but that’s not very common indoors. Keep it away from direct sunlight to avoid burning the leaves.
