5 Indoor Plants That Don't Die Easily

You can have fun growing a garden—even without a green thumb!


You have plants that help you drift off to dreamland, ones that purify the air, and then there are those that refuse to wilt and dry. If you've always wanted to grow a lush patch of land, but you don't seem to be blessed with hands fit to nourish it, you can always turn to these green wonders. Check out our list below:

Areca Palm

If you're looking for something that works well in tropical climates or that can double as a great statement piece at home, a tall areca palm is the way to go. It normally grows up to seven feet but can be easily trimmed to keep it from taking over your living space. The best part? It needs minimal sunlight, too! 


For those who live in places with humid weather, diffenbachias can stand varying points of heat. Its leaves can grow up to a foot long and its bark usually stands at six feet. Diffenbachias don't need regular watering, but it is important to keep the soil moist all the time. 

Ficus Tree 

For an eye-catching display, the ficus tree has shimmering leaves that can draw the attention of your guests. Pro-growers can braid its stems for a tidy topiary effect as well. This humble tree likes a lot of sun or bright-filtered light at the very least, and it thrives best in dry soil. 

Rubber Tree

The rubber tree is probably the easiest to grow and take care of on this list! If you prefer a smaller plant, you can prune it into a shrub shape by cutting off any long stems and dark green leaves. Don't forget to allow the surface of the soil to dry out in between watering. 

Shamrock Plant

This jaunty indoor house plant is reminiscent of Irish clovers and St. Patrick's Day—not only that, it blooms sweet-smelling, white flowers that can add a dainty touch to your home, too! It survives best when exposed to indirect light and it only needs watering at least once a week.
