We all know that plants require the right amount of tender loving care. While there are those who need daily watering and minutes under the sun, there are a few who can thrive indoors with occasional watering. If you've always wanted to carve out a green corner at home but worried that your daily routine won't make it possible, we've found green wonders that can withstand not getting enough attention from you. Review each carefully and see which one you want to add to your space:

1. Succulents

If you've tried caring for at least two to three pots of succulents, it's safe to assume that you've seen at least one pot withering. Don't feel bad! It can be tricky to care for succulents at first as they require minimal watering—some even require water only just once a week. Get a few tips on how to care for your succulents here.

2. Bromeliads

Whether you're sprucing up your living area or garden, count on Bromeliads to never fail you. These can tolerate hot temperature and would thrive on gentle misting from time to time.

3. Air plants

As their name suggests, you don't need soil to grow these plants. Air plants can be the stars of your vertical garden or you can simply hang them up by the entryway. Keep them healthy by giving them a spray once a week.

4. Snake plant

Check different lists of indoor plants you need to know about and this favorite will surely be a part of many. Would you believe that you can leave it without watering for a month? See how you can incorporate it into your decor and let the leaves add visual interest to your space.

5. Aloe vera

How many times have you seen this plant on tables and counters? These are tough plants that grow easily on pots. You can place your Aloe vera in a shady area and make sure you give it an occasional good soak to keep it healthy. 

6. Chinese Evergreen

If you are just beginning your gardening journey, maintaining this sturdy plant is a good start. Even if you place it in an area with low light, it would still bloom! Don't forget to mist the leaves occasionally to keep it in tip-top shape.
