Low Maintenance Houseplants

5 Low-Maintenance Houseplants to Add Some Greenery to Your Home

The new year is the time to start, well, anew. And what better way to liven up your home decor than with some new houseplants? Whether you're houseplant-challenged or have a green thumb, these five low-maintenance houseplants are perfect for adding greenery (and style) to your home without the worry.

1. Rattlesnake Plant

The Calathea lancifolia, also known as the rattlesnake plant, does best in medium to low light so it's perfect for those rooms that don't get a ton of sun.

2. Boston Fern

If you're looking for the perfect hanging plant, look no further than the Boston fern. These classic houseplants thrive in indirect light and love humidity. While they're fairly low-maintenance, it's a good idea to give the leaves a daily misting (or use a humidifier) to ensure your fern will continue to thrive.

3. Peace Lily

The peace lily isn't a true lily, but it's just as beautiful. The peace lily does best in partial shade and requires water about once a week.

4. Golden Pothos

The golden pothos is one of the easiest houseplants to grow. The plant is known for its lengthy growth, making it a perfect hanging plant. It's also a great plant for purifying the air. The plant is toxic if ingested so make sure it's not accessible to dogs, cats or little ones.

5.  Spider Plant

I sadly killed many a succulent and one majesty palm before I discovered the wonders of the spider plant. This low-maintenance plant is nearly impossible to kill. Spider plants do best in partial sun and thrive with a consistently moist soil. They're also pet-safe, so you won't have to worry about your furry friends taking a nibble.
