The Best Indoor Plants for Beginners!

Golden Pothos Vine (Epipremnum pinnatum aureum

The Golden Pothos, or the Epipremnum aureum, is a Southeast Asian native. It has a reputation for being one of the most carefree houseplants.As a houseplant, the plant will grow aggressively from pots or trailing baskets with minimal care. They will easily root in a simple glass of water. With better care, large, mottled, mature leaves may develop.

Spider Plant (Chlorophytum comosum

These hardy plants can thrive in less-than-ideal environments, and they look beautiful when grown in a tropical environment. The leaves of these plants are slender and softly arching, ranging in length from 1 to 1.5 feet on average.

Snake Plant (S. trifasciata or S. trifasciata laurentii)

One of the most prevalent and hardy houseplant species The stiff leaves vary in height from six inches to eight feet, depending on the variety. Snake plants come in a variety of colors, but most have green banded leaves with a yellow line. These plants are easy to grow and almost indestructible, thriving in both bright light and nearly dark corners of the home. Snake plants have been shown to increase health and well-being. They were first cultivated and held as prized houseplants in China, where it was believed that those who grew the plant received the blessings of the eight gods (long life, longevity, wisdom, elegance, art, poetry, fitness, and strength).

Dracaena Species

Dracaena marginata, also known as the dragon tree, is a beautiful plant and green sword-like leaves with red edges. The eye-catching spiky tree is native to Madagascar, and it's known as a perfect entry plant for home gardeners because it's easy to care for, drought-tolerant, and virtually indestructible. The slow-growing plant can be grown all year and blooms in the spring with tiny white flowers (though it rarely flowers indoors). In warm outdoor climates, this small tree can reach a height of 20 feet, although it is most commonly grown as a potted houseplant with a height of 6 feet or less.

Succulents and Cacti

Succulents are famous with home gardeners for two reasons: they're visually appealing and virtually indestructible. Succulents save water by storing it in their leaves, stems, and roots. They've evolved to live in arid environments all over the world, from Africa (where many of them originated) to North America's deserts.
