Swiss Cheese Plant  (Monstera Deliciosa) – These are one of the easiest low maintenance plants. They thrive in bright to medium indirect light. Water every week or two. These actually do better if they dry out in between waterings.

Arrowhead (Syngonium White) – This plant needs bright, indirect light. It can tolerate a range of temperatures indoors and can be watered once a week.   


Marble Queen Pothos (Scindapsus Marble Queen) – This is another low maintenance plant that can be watered every 1 – 2 weeks and needs medium to bright indirect light. 

Silver Pothos (Scindapsus Jade Pothos) – These are easy going plants that can easily survive on low water and indirect sunlight but they do need to be misted daily or often. 

Spider Plant (Chlorophytum Comosum) – This is a very easy going plant. They do need to be near a window during the day for indirect light and need water about once a week. 


Money Tree(Pachira Aquatica) Direct sunlight at times is ok to give it a boost, but indirect and florescent light work well. Mist and water every 1 – 2 weeks.



Red Nerve Plant (Red Veined Fittonia) – This is another plant that likes bright indirect light. It also needs a lot of water. Keep it near a window and be sure to water once a week. 

White Nerve Plant (White Veined Fittonia) -These are easy to grow. Indirect light and water every 1 – 2 weeks is perfect.



Snake Plant (Sansevieria)  – This plant does good in any light and only needs water every week or two. 


Aluminum Plant (Pilea Aluminum) – These may be the more needy plants on the list. Aluminum plants do need 4 or more hours of indirect sunlight each day so putting them nearer to the window is best. They also need more water than other plants. The rule is to always make sure that the top layer of soil is damp. 

Victorian Parlour Palm (Chamaedorea Elegans) – This again is an easy plant to care for with watering 1 – 2 times a week and indirect sunlight each day. 


I personally have most of these plants and they are thriving with adequate care. My secret is to stay on a committed on a watering schedule once a week. I also have them in ares where they get an entire day’s worth of indirect light. My home feels so fresh and comfortable with all my plants and it looks beautiful too. I wish you all the best of luck with your houseplants. You can do it!
