Gardening is a very calming activity that fills life with peace and joy. It's really just a rewarding experience. In previous posts I have talked about gardening outside. What about inside houseplants?
Pothos are by far the easiest houseplants to take care of. I really like pothos because each leaf is different, none are the same. Some stand straight up or some can dangle down like a vine.
Watering is very straightforward for the pothos plant. I have found that watering weekly is the best. Occasional fertilizer is needed to increase the growth of the plant.
Aloes have a special property that is used medicinally. The inside flesh of the aloe plant is used as a soothing agent for cuts, shapes, burns, and skin care. Aloe is a great plant to have around for those reasons. It really does sooth and help irritations, I was very surprised myself when I tried using it.
Aloe is a very hardy plant that requires minimal watering. I usually water mine every 10-14 days depending on the temperature and the season.
I grow my Lucky Bamboo plant in water only with occasional liquid fertilizer. I love the bamboo because it is a plant that doesn't take up a lot of space, nor needs a lot of sunlight. It's a perfect fit for a desk or a shelf. Bamboo is also a very hardy plant requiring minimal care resulting in ease on the owner.
"Plants give us oxygen for the lungs and the soul."
4. Snake Plants
Thin, thick, variegated, or striped snake plants come in a variety of visual appeals. Some can be tall or some can be short and compact. The reason why I love snake plants is because of their minimal care and low light preferences. I usually water my snake plant every 10-14 days just like the bamboo.
5. Tillandsia and Bromeliads
The last plant on this list is actually an air plant that can be planted in soil. It looks more like a Bromeliad than the air plants that everyone else thinks about. A pink flower will come out from the center. Eventually that pink flower will gradually open up and purple flowers will emerge.
I'd consider the tillandsia to be more of a dessert plant versus a tropical plant. Tillandsia bromeliads are very hardy and drought tolerant when grown indoors. I usually water mine every 14 days depending on the season and temperature of my room.
