It's surprising how easy it is to take care of these houseplants. Why wait? Give it a shot today!
Pink African Violet
African Violets aren't your typical houseplants. They are captivating vintage beauties with a wide range of colours and soft fuzzy leaves that give them a unique look. They will bloom for a long time, given the proper care and lighting.
The Boston Fern is a great air purifier recommended by NASA as it is non-toxic, making it safe for children and pets to be around. It is critical to keep your Boston ferns in lower light and adequately watered, as they prefer damp, nutrient-rich soil, unlike their tropical counterparts.
The money tree
This plant is pet-friendly and air-purifying with large star-shaped leaves and a braided trunk that will instantly give your home an exotic feel. The Money Tree gets its name from the Feng Shui belief that it fosters positive energy and brings good luck to its owner. This plant may also aid in reducing stress and anxiety and may help relieve sleeping disorders.
Prickly Pear Cactus
These low-maintenance plants require little watering and fertilizing. They are effortless to maintain and super hard to kill. With its drought-tolerant nature, this cactus only needs watering once or twice a month, making it ideal for those who mostly stay outdoors. The plant is non-toxic, but you must watch for those sharp spines.
Neon Prayer Plant
This plant has striking green foliage, perfect for window sills and shelves. These are easy to grow as long as they have moist soil and are misted once a week. It is non-toxic and pet-friendly, absorbs pollutants, and keeps air breathable.
Bromeliad Aechmea Pink
This beautiful and vibrant houseplant is an excellent choice for plant lovers, pet parents and beginners, as it thrives at a temperature of around 70 degrees, making it a nice gift for anyone. Unlike other plants, bromeliads require regularly watering the center of the plant rather than the soil. Fill the center of the plant half-full to prevent salt and mineral build-up.
The String of Hearts
These plants are everywhere, and their stunning heart-shaped foliage makes it clear why. Its slender vines can reach up to 12 feet long in their natural environment. The best place for this plant would be an area that does not receive direct sunlight most of the day but still receives bright, indirect light. Additionally, this plant is pet-friendly, so you won't worry about your pets nibbling on it.
