For those who have plants at home, it’s well-known that not all indoor plants are easy to care for and keep flourishing. Many times, we may “lose control” of our plants, and they become less beautiful or, in some cases, even die.

Having indoor plants at home is not only ideal for decorating indoor spaces but also for improving health. Some plants have the ability to purify indoor air, eliminating toxic substances that could be inhaled when we breathe.

Indoor plants contribute to our well-being, but if you lack time to care for them, here are 10 low-maintenance indoor plants that will add a decorative touch to your living spaces.

  1. Coleus: This indoor plant is charming with colors ranging from red to yellow, green to purple, in a hand-painted-like pattern. It’s easy to cultivate – just place it in a bright but not sun-exposed location and water it every three days.
  2. Croton: Among the most appreciated plants, it boasts vibrant-colored leaves that can brighten up indoor spaces. While not difficult to grow at home, being a tropical plant, it requires constant humidity.
  3. Sansevieria: Perfect for a modern touch, this plant is one of the most resilient globally. Water it twice a week.
  4. Philodendron: A large-leafed climbing plant, it needs a fairly large pot and indirect light. If you can ensure constant humidity, it will grow without significant issues.
  5. Cactus: Ideal for indoor spaces, especially for those without the time to care for plants or lack a green thumb. They require virtually nothing to grow well, except for a spot in a bright corner.
  6. Boston Fern: This fern variety is perfect for low-light environments but requires ample humidity. Spritz water with a spray bottle, and they will last for years.
  7. Chamaedorea: One of the hardiest indoor palms globally, with elegant leaves that can survive even in the shade. Water it occasionally.
  8. Peace Lily (Spathiphyllum): Very resilient and elegant, it thrives well in less illuminated corners. Water it infrequently and only when the soil is dry.
  9. Rubber Plant (Ficus elastica): With beautiful green leaves, if placed in a well-lit (but not sun-exposed) location and watered sporadically, it can last for years. Requires a sufficiently large pot.
  10. Prayer Plant (Maranta leuconeura): This tropical plant showcases vivid colors, needing constant humidity with slow growth.
