I got my first plant last summer and since then my obsession has really taken off. I’ve realized that it’s because I’m able to be responsible for something without it being a huge deal if it dies. Now I have a lot of plants and am happier than everrr! I thought about naming them, but I’m already bad at remembering names so I decided that wasn’t the best idea…
Since I’m definitely still not a pro at keeping plants alive, I try to get ones that are harder to kill. That’s where this list comes in. Below are hard-to-kill plants that hopefully won’t die on you.
This is by far the easiest plant I’ve ever had. It’s so cute and looks amazing no matter what. Mine hasn’t browned at all and always looks healthy.
I love the look of this plant and mine has grown so much since this picture. They also make little babies to easily propagate as well! the one on the right has grown from my big one.
Pothos plants just keep growing and are very low maintenance! I have four different pothos in different areas of my apartment just growing around bookshelves and mirrors. There are different colors to choose from and it’s also really easy to propagate to make even more plants!
I would think that a palm would be hard to keep alive, but it’s actually really low maintenance and I love the tropical vibes. Here are links to IKEA or The Sill.
Succulents are just known for being easy to take care of and that’s why they’re so popular. I’ve found that the ones with a harder outside are easier for me to keep alive. The ones that are known for being the hardest to kill are zebra (left pic), burro’s tail (middle pic), jade (right pic I think?), aloe, agave, and snake plant.
If all else fails and you just can’t keep plants alive, just get fake plants. There are some that actually look really real. A hack for larger plants that may be more obvious is to still put real soil in the pot to make it look even more real because the fake soil is usually the easiest way to tell a fake plant from a real one.
