Whenever I post a plant picture on my Instagram, I usually get multiple comments from people saying: ‘Oh I wish I could take care of plants’ or ‘I always kill plants’. So today I want to help you because I think that everyone can take care of plants. With a little bit of knowledge and the right plant for you and your space, it’ll all be well. These are 6 houseplants that I find are really easy to care for. Even when you have a black thumb…
My number one easy houseplant is definitely the Sansevieria. Also called
Another plant that is really easy is the Dracaena. I’ve got this one on top of my closet, where there isn’t much light and since it’s up there I tend to forget to water this a lot. So it’s not getting much water at all. But it just keeps going. I like the way this looks, the leaves are very shiny and quite spiky. This one also comes in different variations.
The official name of this beauty is Zamioculcas Zamiifolia, but come on who is going to remember that. So we’ll just stick with its nickname; the ZZ plant. I fell in love with this plant because of it’s shiny, almost fake looking leaves. I then read that it’s a very easy plant and I just knew I had to get one. I now have this one standing in a dark corner beside my door and it looks so good. I
That I’m putting this plant in this post is actually kind of ironic, because I literally just threw mine away. I killed it, or rather some very annoying fungus gnats killed it. So yeah it really is a easy houseplant, just not when it gets infested with those bugs. But I guess that goes for every plant. Anyhow, I love these plants. They look really nice, they usually grow really fast and they tell you exactly when they need water. The leaves just droop and look really sad when it needs water. Which is super handy ofcourse. When the plants
The Peperomia Obtusifolia was the first plant I ever bought, I think about two years ago. I was actually on the hunt for a Pilea Peperomodius, you know the one that is like super popular on Instagram. They didn’t have one, because back then they were just starting to become popular so they were still quite rare – whereas now you see them everywhere. Anyhow, I couldn’t find one and I opted for this one instead because I really didn’t want to go home empty-handed. And I’m so happy I bought this. Like I said, I’ve had this plant for two years, I still have it in the same pot as I did when I bought it and it is just thriving. It has grown so much. To the point now that I kind of
Last but certainly not least we’ve got cacti. It’s funny though because my love for cacti had just started recently. I never liked them, but now I really do. People change… Anyhow, cacti are usually quite easy to care for. They prefer bright light or even better direct sunlight. But when it comes to watering less is definitely more. When you have killed a cactus before, the reason is probably that you have given it too much water. They really only need a tiny bit. And right now in winter, I don’t even give them any water. So just remember that it is always better to under water than over water!
