5 Houseplants You Can't Kill

1. Philodendron

Philodendron - 5 Houseplants You Can't Kill

I love this plant, and I own several.  The name means "Tree Lover," and it's a type of vine, so it cascades down as it grows.  I have one on my desk, and the bright green against the white of the room really pops.  The experts recommend letting to get dry between waterings, and I honestly just wait until it looks a little droopy before I water it.  It can be at least a week- 10 days.

2. Kalanchoe 

I bought this plant several years ago from the grocery store.  I barely watered it, and it just kept on kicking.  In the Summer I put it outside and let nature do her thing.  In the Winter I bring it in and put it near a window.  It's in the succulent family and doesn't require a ton of water, so it's very low maintenance.  This particular plant may have seen better days, but it's not dead, so I consider it a success!

3. Succulents

Succulants - 5 Houseplants You Can't Kill

My all time favorite plants.  I love the shape of the plants and the shade of green.  I had almost all succulents at our wedding.  I like them because they require almost no water (about a shot class every 3 weeks), and require zero care.  What else could you want in a plant?

4. Cacti

Who doesn't love a cacti?  It's the ultimate set it and and forget it plant.  I keep mine beside our TV, so I get a little bit of nature while I'm laying on the couch.  I honestly never water it, and it always looks fine.  They can last for years.  I put it outside in the Summer so it gets the heat and some rain.

5. Staghorn Fern

I'm obsessed with this plant.  It's like a living pair of antlers on your wall.  I found mine at Pollen this Spring.  During the Summer it lived outside, and I soaked the board and root ball once a week.  In the Winter it will live in my office and get soaked every 2-3 weeks.

Thank you for reading, and have a great week!
