5 Perfect Houseplants for Beginners

With the approach of the new year, many people have resolutions to get healthier and start new endeavors. The new year is a perfect time to start houseplant living and bring a little green into your indoor space. Many people are concerned about the amount of work or that they have a black thumb. www.platthillnursery.com is here to help you get started. Here are five perfect houseplants to get you started with your healthy indoor living:

  1. Lucky Bamboo – This easy, low light plant only requires abundant water. Lucky bamboo needs to be put in a small pot that is constantly filled with water. It’s that simple!
  2. Aloe – This plant requires a lot of sunlight with the occasional watering. Like succulents, the aloe plant can go a long time without watering. If you find yourself struggling to remember to water, this is the plant for you.
  3. Jade Plant – This is a great starter plant as it is highly tolerant of dry soil and can store water int its leaves for a long time. Like the aloe plant, it will thrive more with neglect than over-loving.
  4. Snake Plant – This plant is a great vertical accent to your living space. It can take a drought and a variety of light conditions and be successful. If you want something to fill a bigger space, this will be a great plant to start with.
  5. Wandering Jew – This great plant has great, vibrant colors and can take a variety of light conditions. This will need more watering than the previous three, but the color is great.
