We’ve put together a list of the easiest to care for houseplants out there that anyone can grow!
Maybe you had an indoor plant once and it very quickly turned into a wilting, yellowing embarrassment. Or, maybe you’ve never owned an indoor plant because you aren’t sure if you can keep it alive.

Don’t get discouraged! Success with houseplants starts with finding the right plant for you. Maybe you just need an indoor plant that won’t mind if you forget to water it once in a while. Or a houseplant that will survive a week alone when you’re out of town for your friend’s wedding.

Check out my list of 5 top houseplants that are hard to kill and you’ll see that there’s an indoor plant out there for everyone—whether you have a green thumb or not.


This hardy plant will do just fine in any type of light from low light areas to bright, full sun. Sansevieria don’t need a lot of water, are not sensitive to temperature changes, and don’t require any additional care. They are also highly-sought after for their air-purifying properties.

Look out for: Yellow, drooping leaves and funny smell, which could indicate overwatering.

This plant will do best in bright, indirect sunlight, and will tolerate low light areas where other plants might not thrive.  Water your Spider Plant when the top 2-inches of soil are dry and it will be perfectly happy in your home.

Look out for: Drooping can be a sign of underwatering while yellow or soft, brown leaves can be a sign of overwatering.

This bright, variegated plant does best in low to medium light conditions. It only needs to be watered when the soil starts to feel dry, making it a perfect plant for anyone who is always on the go.

Look out for: Brown tips mean the humidity is too low.


Virtually indestructible, the ZZ Plant will do best if you basically ignore it. It thrives in areas where many plants don’t, making it one of the best office plants or bathroom plants. The ZZ Plant requires very little water and prefers to be kept on the dry side.

Look out for: Yellow leaves mean the plant is getting too much water.


Adaptable to almost all light conditions, and somewhat drought tolerant, the Monstera is a low maintenance, stunning tropical plant.

Look out for: Crispy leaves mean the plant is getting sunburned or it’s not getting enough water, yellow leaves mean too much water. But don’t worry, Monsteras are incredibly forgiving and bounce back quickly!
