Caring for Easy Houseplants

You can freshen up the look of your home’s interior easily and inexpensively with houseplants. Here are five low-maintenance options:1

  • English ivy grows effortlessly, even under fluorescent light.
  • Jade is a succulent that requires only moderate lighting and occasional watering.
  • Air plants don’t require soil; they need only bright indirect light and to be soaked in a bowl of water for 30 minutes weekly.
  • Areca (butterfly) palm can grow as high as 6 feet in bright indirect sunlight with biweekly watering.
  • Basil grows well indoors with plenty of sunlight and water, often positioned on a window sill.
