Indoor Plants for the Lazy Plant Lovers

We all love plants, we love bringing the outside in and making our homes look greener and brighter, but not all of us are great at great and making sure our plants stay their greenest and their brightest. It happens to the best of us. Forgetting to water the plants on a busy day or forgetting that you have a plant at all.

Taking care of your plants is focused on three main things- light, water and soil. That’s where our team of interior designers come in, to help you. Here is a list of the easiest indoor plants for the busiest (and laziest) plant lovers around.

1. Snake Plant

A vibrant and brightly coloured green plant with yellow stripes running across its ends just adding to its beauty. This plant is great indoors not only because it is an air purifier but also because it’s the lazy gardeners dream!

Place it in low light and water it only when the soil is completely dry. That’s it! You have a healthy and beautiful plant, indoors!

2. Spider Plant

Growing in dense clusters of light green and white stripes, the spider plant makes for a great hanging plant. It strives in no sunlight, any potting soil and not very frequent  watering. Just keep the soil a little moist and water it when it is completely dry! (Pro Tip from Marks Dzyn: Use lukewarm water for best results)

3. Areca Palm

The Areca palm is a beautiful and butterfly shaped wonder! A favorite in indoor plants- its colour and size perfectly can fill any corner of the house with no effort at all plus it also works as a purifier.

Just keep the plant in partial shade, water it just enough to moisten the soil and don’t let it stand in water to avoid root rot. Once again, you’re good to go.

4. Pece Lily

The Peace Lily is a beautiful plant according to our interior designers. Bring it home today and let the elegant dark green leaves soothe your soul and the huge, fragrant flowers calm you down at the end of another stressful day!

This plant lives best in shade with very little sunshine. Watering it is also a small task as the soil is best left moist and it requires to be watered once a week. That’s all you have to do to keep this beauty alive.

5. Aloe Vera

Aloe Vera is a great plant to grow indoors not only because its spikes look super cool but also because it has amazing medicinal properties that help soothe and rejuvenate your skin!!

This plant is a little more effort to grow because you need to manage it’s access to light.

Place the plant under a south or west facing window to make sure it gets a lot of sunlight. Water it only once the soil completely dries out and pot the plant in well drained, sandy potting soil. Follow these steps, and you have your very own skin medicine at home!
