7 Houseplants Your Kids Can Learn to Grow 

Homiful.com -- Learning to plant and garden can be a positive activity to do with children. Children can get to know nature while fostering a sense of empathy and compassion. The following "7 Houseplants Your Kids Can Learn to Grow" can be a choice of plants that are easy to maintain for beginners and even children!



Succulents like well-lit, warm environments and don't require as much hands-on care or watering. They won't grow fast, but they're hard to kill as long as you don't overwater them. If you feel that your children may love your succulents too much, stick with a leafy plant like a pothos that can withstand excessive watering.

Spider Plant


Spider plants are typical houseplants that are also known as "airplane plants" because they release plantlets from the tips of their stems. If these plantlets fall to the ground after being dropped by the mother plant and locate suitable soil, they will shortly begin to grow into a new plant.This plant is beneficial to your health since it eliminates any formaldehyde contained in the air surrounding it - yet it is not poisonous!

Golden Pothos


The pothos plant is a climbing vine with heart-shaped leaves. One of its many health benefits is that it eliminates typical indoor toxins such as benzene, xylene, and formaldehyde. However, dogs and cats should be avoided because this plant is poisonous to them. You could want it on a high shelf or in a hanging pot.

Peperomia obtusifolia


The Peperomia obtusifolia is an excellent pet-friendly plant; it's a plant that's pretty easy to care for, making it perfect for people who have kids or pets. Its native habitat is a humid forest; it feeds on nutrients obtained from tropical surroundings and tree debris.



Our alternative is a vine, but a strong one that won't take much daily care, making it ideal for kids who are just starting out with gardening and taking care of plants. It may be grown on its alone or as part of a mixed planting. It will begin to vine after a while, so a hanging basket is a nice option for this one, though you may train it on a trellis or a pole for support. 

ZZ Plant


ZZ plant is one of the easiest plants to grow and care for in the house with children. It's everything kids want in a plant: tough, attractive, and simple to care for. It belongs to the same plant family as the previously described pothos. Though it is not a cactus, it takes minimal watering; individuals who live in low-humidity areas, such as deserts, keep this plant and water it once every couple of weeks.

Snake Plant


The plant has quite long leaves that grow straight up from the ground. If you want to educate your children how to care for this plant, choose one with hard leaves; these plants don't need to be watered as frequently and are more lasting. 

Snake plants have been shown to remove toluene, xylene, and formaldehyde from the air, and they're also wonderful for bedrooms since they offer oxygen at night. They are, however, dangerous if eaten, therefore kids and dogs should not get access to them without supervision.
