7 Houseplants You Probably Won’t Kill

Do you love the extra greenery that plants bring to a space but don’t have the patience to care for a houseplant? Don’t give up just yet! We’ve compiled a list of seven low-maintenance plants that are perfect for newbie houseplant owners. They’re durable and can withstand a little neglect every once in awhile.

1. Rubber Plant

Quick Care Tips: Place your rubber plant in an area with low light. A good measure for the proper brightness of a room is to keep the plant where one’s shadow can be easily seen on the wall behind the plant throughout the course of the day. Water only when the soil becomes slightly dry. If you see yellow leaves that means you have been watering the plant too much.

2. Philodendron

Quick Care Tips: Philodendron plants need bright, indirect sunlight. If the leaves are yellowing, the plant is getting too much light. Water only when the top inch of soil dries out.
