10 houseplants that are very, very hard to kill, even for you

10 houseplants that are very, very hard to kill, even for you

Let’s agree right away: you still have to make at least a minimum of effort to care for a houseplant.

  • Here is the absolute minimum:
  • find a place with sufficient light for the plant;
  • put it in a pot;
  • water as needed.

Not difficult at all, right? If you can do these three things, then the next 10 plants will do just fine in your home.

Here they are, the most persistent:

1. Aloe real

  • Scientific name: Aloe vera.
  • Light: Indirect or direct sunlight.
  • Watering: Allow soil to dry between waterings.

Why it’s right for you: Aloe is very difficult to kill, and if you take care of it properly, you will be rewarded with little aloe offspring. And you can also cut off the shoot and anoint the skin with it – it helps against sunburn and dryness.

2. Zamioculcas zamielifolia

  • Scientific name: Zamioculcas zamiifolia.
  • Light: Bright or moderate sunlight is best, but weak light will do.
  • Watering: Water only when the soil is dry.

Why it’s right for you: Zamioculcas grows best if you forget about it for a while!

3. Sansevieria cylindrical

  • Scientific name: Sansevieria cylindrica.
  • Light: Bright or moderate.
  • Watering: Water sparingly – this sansevieria can live a very long time without water.

Why It’s Right For You: I forgot to water it for weeks and didn’t notice any difference. It’s even too easy to take care of!

4. Epipremnum golden

  • Scientific name: Epipremnum aureum.
  • Light: Grows well in any light – low, indirect or bright.
  • Watering: Let the soil dry completely between waterings.

Why it’s right for you: These hardy plants give great results: the more sun and water they get, the bigger they grow!

5. Chlorophytum crested

  • Scientific name: Chlorophytum comosum.
  • Light: Chlorophytum prefers bright light for intensive growth, but does well in indirect and rather low light.
  • Watering: Regular, but don’t let the soil soak too much (otherwise the roots will rot).

Why it’s right for you: Chlorophytum is easy to care for, and if you do it right, it will produce new shoots that you can use to grow new plants or give away to friends.

6. Fittonia silver-veined

  • Scientific name: Fittonia argyroneura.
  • Light: Bright indirect sunlight.
  • Watering: Keep the soil moist but not wet.

Why it’s right for you: This plant is unpretentious and loves high humidity, so it’s best to decorate the bathroom with it!

7. Sansevieria three-lane

  • Scientific name: Sansevieria trifasciata.
  • Light: Indirect or bright sunlight.
  • Watering: Water sparingly and allow the soil to dry completely between waterings.

Why It’s Right For You: This plant is virtually indestructible, requires minimal watering, and purifies the air.

8. Scheffler tree

  • Scientific name: Schefflera arboricola.
  • Light: Bright, indirect sunlight works best.
  • Watering: Wait until the soil is completely dry between waterings.

Why it’s right for you: In addition to being very beautiful, shefflera does not require special care and frequent watering.

9. Dracaena sander

  • Scientific name: Dracaena sanderiana.
  • Light: Bright, indirect light works best (but low light works).
  • Watering: Change the water every few months. A drop of fertilizer with every water change will help your dracaena grow healthy.

Why it’s right for you: For the normal growth of dracaena, it is enough to change the water from time to time and make sure that the water does not darken. As soon as it gets dark – replace!

10. Dracaena bordered

  • Scientific name: Dracaena marginata.
  • Light: Grows best under bright or indirect light. Weak light is acceptable, but dracaena will grow noticeably slower.
  • Watering: Keep the soil moist but not wet. Fertilize twice a month during the summer.

Why it’s right for you: If you cut a dracaena, new leaves will grow in just a few. This is the perfect plant to mold to your liking!
