When adding life to your home by way of plants, a little goes a long way. While you could easily spend a ton dressing up your home with expensive, exotic, and hard-to-find greens for your garden, it’s easy to deck your home with species that won’t break the bank.

Pull up this list when you’re ready to go shopping, and keep your home refreshed and alive with these easy to find plant babies:

Aloe Vera: P40 to P250

Whether you want to keep it in a small pot or go large by dressing up your garden with long-leafed varieties, you’re set to benefit from this plant because it offers a wide range of medicinal qualities. One of the lower maintenance plants, aloe vera thrives in tropical climates, making it a good pick for those without a green thumb.
