Spider plants

Spider plants are great low-maintenance options that fare well in most lighting and temperature conditions. They are perfect on tables, desks, and even in hanging baskets.


There are a number of varieties of palm plants are easy to grow and maintain. A few popular varieties include areca and bamboo palms. Areca palms can grow to around six feet high and function as an indoor tree. Because the soil needs to completely dry between waterings, they usually only need to be watered about once a week. Bamboo palms have the potential to grow even taller – a whopping ten to twelve feet – and they are also air-purifying plants.

If you’re looking for an indoor plant with a pop of color, consider the African violet. They will continue to bloom throughout the year if you keep them in a warm location where they get plenty of sun exposure.

Christmas cactus
