Plants can transform your home or workspace into a more peaceful, tranquil and beautiful place, but if you're not good with them, your improved space can quickly turn into a depressing chamber of death. The solution: Get some more resilient plants.
All-things-home weblog Apartment Therapy rounds up five hard-to-kill houseplants that will keep your peaceful, plant-adorned space alive even if you've got the brownest of thumbs. Those five:
- Dracaena marginata
Note that some of the plants aren't pet-friendly (actually, all but the Bromeliad is listed as toxic to cats and dogs by the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals), so you'll want to either avoid those if you've got a pet or make sure your pet isn't a plant-eater.
We've also covered plenty of other methods for helping keep your plants alive and kicking, like the previously mentioned wine bottle plant nanny and the self-watering garden. We've also highlighted plants that give you better air and plants that don't need much water, so between all those posts, you should be able to find a plant that works for you.
If you've had good luck with any particular plants despite your lack of a green thumb, let's hear what resilient plants you've had luck with in the comments.
