Unfortunately, not all of us were born with a green thumb. But this hasn’t stopped us from wanting to fill up our homes with beautiful plants on every shelf and every corner. If the only thing you’ve managed to keep alive so far was your snake plant, we’re here to help. These plants are so low-maintenance you’ll barely have to remember to water them.

The pothos is a great beginner plant. It’s super easy to care for and it tolerates all kinds of low-light environments. Its leaves grow downward, which makes it a beautiful option for a hanging planter or a high shelf in your living room. You should only water this pothos once its soil is completely dry, which means you won’t kill it by forgetting to water it!

Also known as the flamingo flower, the Pink Anthurium prefers bright indirect light but will tolerate medium indirect light, too. It is the longest blooming houseplant, with each gorgeous waxy pink bloom lasting up to eight weeks. The best part about it? Just like the Marble Queen Pothos, this plant only needs to be watered every 1-2 weeks once its soil is completely dry.

Not only does the Pilea Peperomioides look adorable, it is also non-toxic and pet-safe. Native to southern China, it is also known as the money plant and UFO plant. During the spring months, this Pilea can even produce small white flowers in the correct environment. It thrives in medium to bright indirect light and can adapt to lower light conditions, and should only be watered when its soil is almost completely dried out.
