3 Easy Houseplants To Get You Started

If you want to decorate with the intent of making your space look alive and vibrant, then look no further than a houseplant. Houseplants are great because they can easily transform a boring space into an inviting one. In addition, they help purify the air and get rid of bad toxins in your space.

I don’t have a green thumb and I’ve killed more plants than I’d like to admit, but with trial and error, I’ve narrowed it down to the best 3 houseplants anyone can easily take care of. It doesn’t matter if you’re an experienced plant-parent or not, these plants should be easy and very low maintenance!

Rubber Plants

I wanted a plant as tall as me that would give my space a jungle-y vibe and not break the bank. After hours of scrolling on Pinterest, I found that rubber plants are extremely popular because they are so low maintenance! I’ve had my rubber plant for about 6 months now and I can’t believe it’s still alive. I’m actually really shocked.

To make taking care of the rubber plants a little easier for you, I’ve narrowed it down to 4 tips to take care of it with very minimal work.

  1. Water every 5-10 days.

  2. Must be completely dry before watering.

  3. Use a well-draining pot.

  4. Clean the leaves with cloth or paper towel, make it shiny!

Now that you basically know how to take care of it, it is still important to know how your Rubber Plant is feeling. I personally did a lot of research to ensure that I’m taking care of my plant properly and truly understanding if my plant needed some love! Check out the image below to understand your [current/future] rubber plant.

Snake Plants

As I was scrolling through Pinterest about my rubber plants, I kept running into snake plants as one of the EASIEST houseplants to have. According to my research, snake plants basically THRIVE through NEGLECT. What an introvert plant, right?

Snake plants are EXTREMELY low maintenance and here are a few tips to take care of it.

  1. Water every 10-15 days.

  2. Must be completely dry before watering.

  3. Loves to be neglected.

  4. Thrives in any light, especially low light.

Basically, snake plants are very low maintenance and very easy to take care of, but you know what the real selling point is? Check out the image below!

Golden Pothos

I've always loved the way Golden Pothos plants look. I first wanted one of these after I walked into my mentor's bathroom (when she gave me a tour of her house) and her Golden Pothos had its vines all over her bath tub and it looked like a spa or a Bali-esque staycation. Like the other two, Golden Pothos are easy to take care of and they make amazing decorations as they get longer!

Here are easy steps to ensure your Golden Pothos thrive!

  1. Thrives in higher light condition, but will survive in partial light.

  2. Must be completely dry before watering.

  3. Thrives in humidity.

  4. Use well draining soil and pot.

Did you notice I didn’t give you a specific number of days for watering? That’s because it totally depends on your surroundings. So to understand how your Golden Pothos is feeling, check out the image below!
