Become a Plant Mom: 7 Cute and Hard to Kill Houseplants for Beginners

Become a Plant Mom: 7 Cute and Hard to Kill Houseplants for Beginners -- For beginners, taking care of plants can feel like a challenge. It is advisable to start with plants that are easy to care for, to reduce the failure rate. The following recommendations from "Become a Plant Mom: 7 Cute and Hard to Kill Houseplants for Beginners" will help you start your journey to becoming a plant expert!

Fairytale Cactus


Cacti are ideal plants for first-time plant parents. Fairytale cacti resemble castles, so even though they don't produce lush foliage, they're still interesting to look at. Fairytale, just like other cacti, prefers direct sunlight and occasional watering. When you do water them, water them thoroughly and then leave them to dry for weeks or months.

Mini Monstera


Even though it's called "Mini Monstera," don't confuse it with Monstera Deliciosa. If you like Monstera Deliciosa in a smaller size, this is the perfect plant for you! Mini monsteras are among the fastest growing plants. They're epiphytes, which means they like to climb, and they produce smaller leaves with splits as they grow up a single vine. If you give your mini monstera something to climb near bright indirect light, it will be content and will continue to grow.

Tradescantia Nanouk


Tradescantia Nanouk, also known as Fantasy Venice, is incredibly beautiful! It certainly stands out among the plant collection. It can become a trailing ivy in ideal growing conditions, with small white and yellow flowers emerging from pink buds. It grows best in bright, indirect light and prefers north or east-facing windows. Water when the top inch of soil is dry, but don't let it completely dry out.



Again, we recommend succulents only if your space is sunny and your watering can is collecting dust. When it comes to succulents, you can usually tell when they need water because their foliage becomes squishy or wrinkly. Bright sunlight and a solid, well-draining soil mixture are ideal.

ZZ Plant


ZZ plants are eye-catching with their thick, waxy leaves. They grow quickly when exposed to more light, but they can also tolerate low-light conditions. Simply keep in mind that they will grow more slowly in lower light. ZZs are hardy plants that prefer the soil to dry completely between waterings.

Heartleaf Philodendron


We recommend a heartleaf philodendron for something a little different than your average pothos. It's similar to vining philodendrons because of the cascading, lush effect. This philodendron prefers medium indirect light, but can tolerate lower light levels, and prefers the soil to dry completely between waterings.

Red Aglaonema


Aglaonemas are excellent low-maintenance houseplants that add a splash of color with little effort. Aglaonemas can tolerate low light but prefer medium to bright light. Allow the soil to completely dry between waterings. When they're thirsty, their foliage will wilt downward, but they'll perk back up after a thorough watering. Furthermore, when aglaonemas are overjoyed, they can produce flowers.
