Top 5 low Maintenance Indoor Plants


Cacti are a fun, easy-to-grow indoor plant that can grow in almost any environment. They’re also one of the most adaptable plants around—you’ll find cacti thriving in places as diverse as deserts and rainforests.

Cacti need little water to survive and thrive; they have thick skin that stores moisture from the air so they don’t need to be watered often or heavily. The best part? These succulents have sharp spines for protection against predators like birds and insects! If you have room for an outdoor cactus garden, it’s probably best if yours is planted outside during summer months when temperatures are higher than those inside your home (and there aren’t too many critters trying their luck).

Spider Plant

Spider plants are also known as airplane plants because of the way their leaves grow. They are easy to care for and can be grown in a hanging basket, but they also tolerate low light levels, making them perfect for homes with little natural sunlight.

Spider plants like to be kept in indirect light (no direct sunlight) and will survive on very little water, so long as you don’t let your plant dry out completely during extended periods without misting it once or twice a week.


If you’re looking for an easy-to-grow plant that can climb walls, then pothos is the one for you. Pothos grows well in hanging baskets or pots that have plenty of water and sunlight.

The leaves on this plant are known as “leaves” but they’re actually clusters of small leaflets. These leaflets grow upside down and wrap around each other when they reach maturity, creating a soft green leaf with a hint of yellow at its base.


Dracaenas are a type of succulent, meaning they have sharp points on the leaves or stems. They’re easy to grow indoors because they can be grown in containers such as clay pots or plastic trays, and they don’t need much water or sunlight.

Dracaenas are also easy to propagate by taking cuttings from your plant; simply stick the tip of your cutting into the soil, then place it where you want it to grow (without disturbing surrounding plants). This will allow new plants with roots just like yours!

Aloe Vera

Aloe Vera is a succulent plant that can be found in the wild. It has thick, fleshy leaves and kidney-shaped green leafstalks (the part of the plant you see when you cut it open). Aloe vera plants require full sun or partial shade and are very easy to grow indoors. If you want to use aloe vera as a topical skin treatment, place your plant on an east-facing windowsill or near an air conditioner vent where it will receive plenty of light throughout the day.

Aloe plants also make good air purifiers because they trap dust particles in their leaves; however, if you have pets who shed fur frequently—like dogs—or children who bring home lots of dirt from outside playtime every day then this may not be ideal for your particular situation!

These 5 plants are easy to grow indoors.

If you’re looking for an easy-to-grow plant that requires little maintenance, these are the ones to choose.

Cactus (Fybograea australis) – This cactus is a good choice because it can grow indoors without much care. Fertilize only once per month with its own compost and water when the soil becomes dry.

Spider Plant (Chlorophytum comosum) – The spider plant is another great indoor plant that doesn’t need too much attention or care, making it perfect for beginners in the gardening world! Just keep an eye on your watering schedule and make sure that you don’t overdo it with water. Also remember not to overwater!

Pothos (Epipremnum pinnatum) – Pothos are very easy plants to grow given their ability to tolerate low light levels and even heat from above lamps which keeps them happy in any room throughout seasons of cold weather outside where temperatures may drop below freezing at night time during winter months.”


If you’ve always wanted to try growing some indoor plants but weren’t sure where to start, these five options are a great place to start. They’re all easy to care for and require very little maintenance—all you need is a sunny spot that gets at least six hours of direct sunlight per day (ideally more) and some basic watering. Also, don’t forget about the power of positive thinking!
