Many people are turned off to the idea of having houseplants because they think they're difficult to care for (and some are!), so I'm sharing 5 easy to care for houseplants that I have in my own home. They still need to be paid attention to and cared for, of course, but they do better with occassional, accidental neglect.
Fiddle Leaf Fig
Okay, so this one needs a bit more attention than the rest on the list, but they are SO worth it. They are gorgeous and really add a beautiful pop of green to your space. I definitely recommend owning and using a water meter with this houseplant, as overwatering can become a problem. I try to make sure my fiddle leaf figs are always on the medium scale of the water meter. Another important note—do not relocate your fiddle leaf. Once you put it in a spot, try to leave it there as it doesn't do well with being moved around.
Another plant you do not want to overwater but isn't overly sensitive to being dry. I would recommend using a water meter with this plant as well and keeping it low-moderately moist. Snake plants do well in both low and high light areas, I've found.
Bird of Paradise
This houseplant becomes a showstopper once it grows in height, with it's beautiful, broad leaves. This plant likes lots of light and water, so if you don't have a lot of natural light in your home you may want to pass on this one.
Probably THE easiest houseplant to care for. Needs minimal watering and does well in low or high light (but not direct all day sun). I like scattering these throughout the home, including the bathroom.
Another plant you want to be careful of overwatering, but other than that it doesn't need much attention.
Some other houseplants we have that are easy to care for are ivy and succulents. Tell us, what's your favorite houseplant?! Is it easy to care for?
