Are you one of those people that can’t have pets because you’ll forget to feed them? Maybe you should start with a houseplant. Many houseplants are very easy to care for requiring little light and low maintenance. Check out this list of houseplants that anyone can take care of, yes, even you.
Bring a little bit of outdoors inside with English Ivy. Perfect for pots or hanging baskets, this crawling vine can add beauty to any room. Put in on a bookshelf, let it creep along your mantel, or let it wrap it’s way up the railing of your staircase.
Test the soil before watering. English Ivy prefers to be kept a little dry, so let the soil dry out some before watering.
Due to their shape, Ficus trees are a popular tree for the home or the office. This tropical-looking tree can jazz up any room regardless of its size which can be kept short or left to grow into a large tree.
Caring for a Ficus is a little more work than other plants on this list. They require bright indirect light and cannot take temperatures lower than 60 degrees. Direct sunlight may scald the leaves and lead to defoliation of the plant.
Native to the jungles of southeast Asia, Hoyas are a beautiful waxy looking vine that can climb easily. Perfect for the study or on a mantle or just let it climb over your desk at the office.
This plant is perfect for the person with a busy life as they don’t require direct sunlight and can go without being watered every day. This is due in part to the fact that Hoyas have the ability to extract moisture for the air.
I’m sure we all know someone who has or had one of these plants in their house at one time or another. That’s because the Parlor Palm is so easy to take care of. It grows very slowly so it can go years without pruning.
Parlor Palm care is as easy as setting it in a low lit area and watering it when the soil feels dry. Water even less in the winter.
These hardy plants are not only great for the home or office but they are a common plant found in flower arrangements.
Peace Lillies are excellent air purifiers so why not buy a bunch and place them in several rooms of your house?
Caring for a Peace Lilly is pretty easy. Just place it in any low lit area and water it only when the soil is dry to the touch. Peace Lillies are not a fan of overwatering so if the soil is still damp do not water it.
Now that your interior is taken care of how about that outside flower bed or garden? Outdoor lawncare is more complicated than caring for a simple houseplant. But that’s what we at Lawn Jox are for.
