Top 5 Easy House Plants for a New Plant Mom
Ok, let us preface this by saying we are a group of women who LOVE fashion but do not have a green thumb in the slightest. With that said we DO love ourselves some houseplants and have learned a few things about the ones that we love the most. What better way to celebrate Earth day than by sharing our top five easy house plants for any new plant mom.
These guys are so in right now for modern home decor and THANK GOODNESS! These are such an easy-care houseplant for sure because of the need to water them VERY sparingly. They prefer low light and being in pretty pots :).
Most of the easiest plants for a new mom don't have blooms but the Peace Lily does and they are beautiful! The white flowers are such a pretty addition to the gorgeous green leaves of this plant. While the peace lily prefers warm, humid conditions, it can be made comfortable in your home, as long as you do not put in near drafts or in rooms that remain unheated for long periods.
Spider plants just keep on giving. You rarely see a spider plant that doesn't have babies attached. Often grown in hanging baskets, spider plants will get 2 to 2 1/2 feet wide and 2 to 3 feet long. Their roots tend to fill a pot, so repotting may be necessary every couple of years. You can even replant the babies on their own when the little guys start to form roots!
We love when a houseplant is nearly impossible to kill, enter, the Pothos plant. These guys are also very popular on shelves as decor right now for their cool looking trailing plants that just keep on growing, 10 ft. or more! They don't need too much watering and very tolerant of all types of light conditions, even artificial office lights. For decorating, you can let them trail down or secure them to support or trellis!
Mover over fiddle leaf fig, there is a new gorgeous low maintenance girl in town and she's the Rubber Plant. These plants can grow to impressive heights and yes, low maintenance is all that is required. They enjoy bright indirect sunlight and need to be watered enough to keep the soil moist. Extra bonus to spritz it's leaves with water to keep the longevity really going!
What house plant is your favorite of the bunch??
Whatever it is, hope you treat yourself to a real houseplant and enjoy the positive effects a plant baby can have in your home this Earth Day.
