My Top 5 Indoor Plants
One of the living things that make my life better is having plants around me. I love all types for indoor and outdoor. When I lived in the Caribbean, it was such a treat to be able to grow my own fruit trees, vegetables and tropical plants and flowers. Well, let me say that I know that I am just the instrument and through me whatever was planted flourished.
Plants, like any living specie are attracted to certain people and we to them. Some types are just right for us whereas others never seem to prosper no matter what you do. Did you ever notice? A lot like people if you think about it. You can water it, feed it the right vitamins, talk to it, repot and ensure that it has a sunny location but it still refuses to live. It speaks to us but we don’t listen. It’s not for us. Choose again.
I love plants because they bring joy, sunshine and their energy to enhance any room. They improve indoor air quality by removing toxins too. Since we have long winters here in Ontario and in many parts of the world, what better way to brighten a room than with houseplants.
Certain plants will survive even if you under or over water them or they’re just not in the ideal location. Basically, these 5 houseplants will survive the non green thumb persona. Here are the ones that I have at home that are tried and true.
5 hardy and easy to maintain houseplants that will not let you down are listed below.
- Pothos (Epipremnum pinnatum)
This happens to be one of the easiest plants to take care of that I’ve ever seen. You can grow it in water or soil. It’s the least fuss pot on my list. It’s a vine and would look good in a hanging basket near a window or a nice vase.
- Mother- in- law’s-Tongue or snake plant (Sanseveria trifasciata )
It’s easy to see why the name snake plant seems to fit when you take a look at this plant. The only thing about this plant is that if you over water it, lookout because it’s a succulent of sorts and absorbs the water. It will turn soggy and eventually die. That’s my only warning for this one. Most people though, tend to under water instead of the other way around.
- Chinese Evergreen (Aglaonema 'Abidjan')
Sometimes even the avid gardener forgets to tend her babies. That would be me. I can go long periods between watering my precious plants but they are really so forgiving. I really like the white veins that run through this evergreen. I wanted to list 5 that I have here but I have two that are Chinese Evergreen but slightly different.
- Dracaena deremensis 'Janet Craig'
If it has another name I don't have a clue what it is. This one’s a beauty and seems to like indirect sunshine.
- Spider Plant or (Chlorophytum comosum)
I don’t have this plant among my collection any more. It’s one that's always multiplying and sends out lots of baby shoots. The Spider Plant loves a hanging style pot and plenty of sunshine
