Bringing a little greenery inside your home is a great way to stay connected to nature throughout the winter months. Studies have shown that surrounding yourself with plants also helps keep you calm, peaceful, and healthier. If you don’t think you have a green thumb, here are five indoor plants that are easy to care for.
Snake plants are ideal for tall rooms because they can grow to be over 10 feet tall. They can also filter out chemicals in the air such as benzene, formaldehyde, trichloroethylene, xylene, and toluene.
Pothos plants come in a variety of colors to suit your home’s decor. They are very forgiving as they thrive in low-light environments. They are known to grow quite long so a hanging basket would be the ideal planter.
These hardy plants are great for those who are new to indoor gardening. They can adapt to a variety of lighting conditions but do not like to be in direct sunlight. They tend to grow tall and outward, much like a small tree.
Jade plants are succulents and therefore have shiny, rubber-like leaves. Since they retain water in their leaves, you have to be careful not to overwater them. They are also ideal for winter since they add humidity to the air.
Spider plants are easy to breed which makes them the best plant to grow and share with friends. They like bright rooms, but not direct sunlight. As they grow, you may need to repot them after a couple of years.
