Perfect for bathrooms, fittonia—or otherwise known as "nerve" plant—thrives in humid environments. According to The Spruce, it is also "sensitive to strong, direct sunlight and will quickly suffer from leaf burn." 

4. Dwarf Snake Plant, PLANT HOME PH 

You can't go wrong with giving someone a snake plant. Known for being one of the toughest plants out there, it can survive in low-light areas, and it's drought-tolerant, too!

According to Almanac, this indoor plant does "not tolerate soggy soil well; they tend to develop root rot," so it's best to let its soil dry out before watering. 

5. Heartleaf Philodendron, SPRUCE PLANT SHOP 

As its name suggests, this adorable hanging plant has glossy leaves shaped like a heart. Plant parents love it because it could easily thrive indoors
