Easy to Grow Indoor Plants

Published on November 13, 2020, by Madison

Are you spending more time indoors? Try your green thumb and bring the outdoors in with these easy-to-grow indoor plants.

1. Aglaonema

Aglaonema, also known as Chinese Evergreen, is one of the most popular house plants - for a good reason. This slow-growing foliage does not require full sun, easily withstands over-watering, and comes in green, pink, white, and red color variations.

2. Aloe Vera

Aloe Vera is an easy to grow succulent known for its pain relief properties. Aloe Vera thrives in bright, indirect sunlight and temperatures between 55- and 80-degrees Fahrenheit, making it the perfect addition to your apartment’s kitchen window. Water your aloe approximately once every three weeks and even less frequently in the winter.

3. Basil

With nutrient-rich soil and six hours of sunlight a day, growing basil indoors is easy and rewarding. Keep the soil moist but be cautious not to overwater. Reap the rewards of your efforts when you harvest your first bunch of basil leaves.

4. Jade

Jade, another popular succulent, is thought to bring good luck and is often referred to as the money or dollar plant. Keep your young jade plant happy with bright, indirect light and regular watering. Jade plants retain water in their leaves and can survive over a month with minimal attention, so don’t worry if you miss a week or two of watering.

5. Peperomia

The slow-growing peperomia plant is a good choice for new houseplant enthusiasts. The durable, low maintenance peperomia needs medium light and water only when the soil is noticeably dry. Leaves of the peperomia may be textured or smooth and can vary in color and shape.
