{“statusCode”:401,”message”:”License key missing”}

I know these plants are all good as I have grown or grown them now. You will see that I have a lot of plants. If you check out the video below, you will see me setting up a new grow room in the back of my office.

Pothos (Epipremnum)

Pothos is a great option for those looking to add some greenery to their home. They’re relatively easy to care for and don’t require much water or light.

Pothos plants have dark green, waxy leaves. The variegated ones have white or yellow accents on their leaves. Pothos will grow a few feet long and look great hanging from brackets or shelves or draping over walls.

My favorite part about pothos is their ability to grow new “cuttings” from the top of the hanging plant. Pothos is a beautiful plant to brighten up a dull corner.

The Jade Plant is a succulent used for centuries in Asian cultures. Originating in South Africa, It gets its name due to its jade-colored leaves.

They have green-gray stems, giving them their signature look. The jade plant prefers indirect sunlight but will still thrive under artificial light indoors – don’t forget to water it occasionally! It does best if you.

Asparagus Fern (Asparagus aethiopicus)

The Asparagus fern is a perfect plant for those who love greenery but have little time to care for it. Unlike most other plants, it’s the ideal indoor plant because it thrives with neglect,

Asparagus Ferns do not have leaves. They have small flat branches called cladophylls. Over time these can become quite stiff, like needles, so a pair of gloves may be required when handling mature plants.

Provide light, free-draining soil and dappled shade; this plant will be pleased in most homes.

Chinese Money Plant (Pilea peperomioides)

The Chinese Money Plant, Also known as the UFO plant or Pancake plant, to name a few, is a popular indoor plant since it’s easy to care for.

They do best in direct sunlight during spring and winter as they love to soak up the light and warmth; however, in summer, they provide indirect light as the summer sun can scorch those beautiful leaves.

Water weekly after the soil has had a chance to dry out. Be mindful not to overwater, but underwatering can be just as bad. But don’t worry too much about this, as this plant is tough.

Yucca is a tough plant and easy to grow. Place them near a south-facing window, and they will get all the required light. It has such an interesting shape and texture. It also looks great when paired with other plants like cacti.

Unlike most other plants, the Yucca is a perfect indoor plant because it thrives with neglect. Water once weekly, but allow the soil to dry out between watering to avoid root rot.

Aloe Vera is such a cool-looking succulent plant. It has medicinal qualities, and the juice from its leaves is perfect if you burn yourself. Also very good for sunburn too.

The aloe vera plant makes a statement in the home with shortish, thick fleshy stems. Select a heavy container as wide as the plant to prevent this tipping over, as it is a rich plant when it gets bigger.

Water as the soil dries out. In spring and summer, water weekly and during the cooler months, water every two weeks. Place in an indirect but bright location for the plants to thrive

This plant is a touch harder to keep, but it is worth the effort. Calathea requires bright indirect light but needs a nice warm spot. Keep it from being too close to windows as usual; a draught will send this plant southwards.

During the growing season, the soil for this plant should remain moist, so staying on top of your watering regimen is paramount.

This plant would be no good for homes that use de-humidifiers as it requires a more humid location. Either use a misting machine as I have in the video above; you can see current prices on Amazon here. Or mist it every day to increase the humidity around the plant.

Swiss Cheese Plant (Monstera deliciosa)

One of my favorite plants, the Monstera Deliciosa, is great. They can get large and fill a space with color. Although these plants can fruit, it is unlikely at home.

These plants require watering once or twice, but allow the soil to dry out before watering again. One issue they can suffer from is root rot. They prefer indirect light, making them a perfect candidate for a home away from a window.

Humidity is something that can help to stop the leaves from crisping. A light misting daily will help with this. But these plants can make a statement in the home but remain manageable simultaneously.

This plant is awesome. I have a beautiful specimen of this myself, and they are awesome for further into the home, where it has more shade.

They prefer higher temps around 25 and prefer to remain moist. So water after the top inch of soil has dried out.

If ingested, all philodendrons are poisonous to animals and humans, so keep away from cats and dogs. But they do have the bonus of being air purifiers.
