The Easiest Houseplants to Keep Alive

English Ivy

The English Ivy plant prefers humidity, but that doesn’t mean you have to overwater it. In fact, the dampness in the surroundings is what these plants prefer the most.

You can try pouring some water into a saucer with pebbles. When you place your ivy on the pebbles, the water will evaporate, increasing the humidity surrounding it.


Pothos is your safest card if everything else fails. They just need to be watered every one or two weeks, and they can withstand being dehydrated occasionally. Pothos comes in a variety of colors and sizes, but fortunately they all have good indoor resistance.

Pothos are also a good choice if you want a plant that can assist purify the air in your house.

Parlor Palm

What’s amazing about this plant is that they can withstand low light, low humidity, foul air and even near-freezing temperatures. They are considered one of the best plants for cleaning the air. They grow great with little care.

For better nurture, just remember to feed them once or twice during the growing season with a mild liquid fertilizer.

Snake Plant

This plant tolerates a variety of soil, air, water, and light conditions. They gain points because they are also super easy to propagate.

Just make sure that your pets do not eat it, because according to what is reported by the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA) this plant can be toxic to dogs and cats.

Aloe Vera

Aloe vera plants are succulents, which means their leaves conserve water. For that reason, it’s critical not to overwater them. A great thing to remember is that if you water every two weeks in the summer, you should water every four weeks in the winter.

They will thrive the most if you put them in a location that offers bright, indirect sunlight (or even artificial sunlight).
