Best House Plants For Beginners

I got my first house plant a year ago. It added color and brightness to my small, dark bedroom. Back then I was hesitant to add “water plant” to my daily to-do list. What if I forgot? What if I watered it too much, or too little? Or what if I gave it too little sun and it was too late? I didn't want to subject an innocent plant to my unskillful hands that definitely had no gardening skills.


When I realized that not all houseplants require constant attention or a meticulous watering schedule, it was easy to decide which plant to add to my home. Some just aren’t picky when it comes to watering and sun, and there are so many benefits to owning one! Adding greenery to a home adds color and breaks up traditional décor. They can clean up your air, relieve stress and even rid your space of toxins.


Here are 5 of the best houseplants for beginners:


Pothos

My personal favorite is the Pothos plant. You won’t have to worry about forgetting to water it because this plant actually does best if you let it dry out in between. They need very little water, typically only once every 1-2 weeks. Pothos plants also love bright indirect lighting, perfect for Florida!


Spider plant

This plant is one of the best options for Florida homes. They love humidity and are almost impossible to kill. They love indirect sunlight and love to dry out in between watering. The best part is when they grow for long enough, they sprout little baby Spider Plants that you can re-pot and have more to keep or gift to others!


Zamioculcas Zamiifolia

Commonly known as the ZZ plant, this option is great for those who live in apartments. It isn't picky about location and can thrive in the shade so you won’t have to worry about any lack of outdoor space. The ZZ plant would rather be under-watered than over-watered, making it perfect for beginners. Bonus: it even grows little flowers on its stem. 


Snake plant

This plant will definitely be a centerpiece in your home if you choose to grow one. They love indirect sun and not too much water. This plant is extremely hard to kill as it only needs to be watered every 1-2 months! Studies have shown that the Snake plant can even rid your home of toxins and keep the air clean. 


Peace Lily

The Peace Lily is a beautiful indoor plant option and it really easy to grow! They thrive in medium to low light conditions. Depending on the amount of light they receive, they will bloom accordingly. More light means more flowers, and in less light they will remain a simple foliage plant. Peace Lilies are perfect for beginners since they are tolerant of being underwatered and hate a watering schedule. Only water them when the top of the soil is dry to the touch. 


All of these are great options for those who want to start their journey as a plant parent! Deciding what plant to start with may seem tricky, but just do some research and you’ll find your perfect house plant.
