Indoor Plants That Require Little Care
If you don’t have a garden at the back of your house where to unwind at the end of a stressful day, create one indoor or on the balcony. Grow plants in pots and various containers within reach and which your rich imagination can easily turn into small green pockets which will cheer you up. We will give you a helping hand by presenting some of the indoor plants that require little care so you get that small oasis.
Araucaria or the Norfolk Island pine – it stays healthy if given ample light and humidity. In low light, the lower branches may turn brown and fall off. If the air is too dry, it becomes a prime target for spider mites, a common houseplant pest. Indoors it grows up to 10 feet and is an ideal choice for Christmas decorations or a present.
Peperomias are a diverse group of small houseplants with waxy and often highly textured leaves. Its waxy, colorful foliage adds a splash of color in any room, without taking up a lot of space, needing only low to medium light and moderate watering. Keep it away from pets though.
Aloe vera comes next, since we mentioned showy plants. Aloe likes a lot of sunlight so it is a good choice to grow it on balcony and, as you might expect for a succulent, this indoor house plant prefers dry soil, so avoid frequent watering for the best result. Ideal for a pot with little white decorative stones for a beautiful contrast.
The spider plant is probably one of the most popular indoor plants ever. Spider plants come in a number of varieties, and work well as hanging plants, so place it up on cupboards, in corners. Spider plants do well with evenly moist soil and bright or medium lighting conditions.
Dragon tree is a plant which horticulturists metaphorically say is hard to kill. Direct sunlight and over-watering is not something the dracaena likes at all and, if showing signs of fatigue, it can be easily repotted.
The parlor palm is another option on our list of indoor plants that require little care. It is one of the smaller indoor palms, growing up to 4 feet tall. Average room temperatures, not too much watering and just about enough light but not direct sunlight will keep this plant happy and an exotic presence in your homes.
