You Probably Can’t Kill


Indoor plants are wonderful additions to any home or office spacebut making sure they are watered when needed, getting enough light, and constantly cared for, can prove to be a challenging task in today's busy world. 

Fortunately, there are some really hardy indoor plants out there that are easy to keep happy, healthy, and green in your workspace.

Choosing the wrong plant for a specific indoor environment is one of the most common mistakes we come across.  You must choose the plants that will be able to thrive and withstand the challenges your specific indoor environment. You must also consider how much time you can spend caring for your plants before choosing them.

Here are the top five indoor plants that are forgiving and easy to care for.

Sansevieria

If a prize were to be given out for the most tolerant plant, the Sansevieria, commonly known as the Snake Plant or “Mother-In-Law’s Tongue,” would be one of the frontrunners. These plants may be neglected for weeks at a time and still manage to look fresh. They can survive low light levels, droughts, and have very few insect issues.

As one of the most popular indoor plants, the Dracaena, or cane plant is one of the easiest plants to care for. These hardy plants thrive in indirect light and maintain their look for years.
