8 Fuss-Free Houseplants That WILL Survive In Your Home


It may be associated with English country gardens, but lavender is a great indoor plant too. Bring this heavenly scented shrub into your home and enjoy its vibrant purple flowers and heady aroma all year long.

Ceropegia Woodii

This adorable little plant has many names (chain of hearts, hearts on a string, rosary vine) and is much-loved for its delicate flowing stalks and pretty heart-shaped leaves that grow in pairs.

Snake plant

In an ideal world it likes bright, indirect light but it can flourish in low light conditions too. While it can cope with irregular watering, you don’t want to overwater it.

Peace lily

If you're searching for a good-looking, hardy houseplant that flowers, you can't beat the peace lily. This popular houseplant features glossy green leaves with fresh white blooms that last for months.

Spider plant

Introduce a bit of retro charm with a spider plant. Easy to care for, air purifying, and with a dramatic silhouette to boot, this houseplant has proven popular throughout the ages and for good reason.

Aloe vera

Pick up an aloe vera! This stemless succulent has thick, fleshy leaves that contain a medicinal gel that's been used for thousands of years. 

Weeping fig

Add a serious dose of drama with a weeping fig. Its loose-hanging branches of glossy, oval leaves are perfect for adding a touch of elegance to a lackluster office or living room.


For a seriously hardy option, you can't beat a cactus. They're the perfect starter plants for novice gardeners as you can't really go wrong with them.
