Easy Indoor Plants You (Hopefully) Won’t Kill

April 18, 2019

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 my favorite plant of all time. It grows forever and will climb things! My goal is to have pothos plants in different areas of my apartment just growing around bookshelves and up mirrors.

Parlor Palm

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.

Any Succulent TBH

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.

Bird of Paradise

I’m still trying to figure out this one and tell if it’s actually healthy, because as you can see it looks a little off…but bird of paradise plants are a good option for a large plant that’s generally easy to take care of.

Fake Plants

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.
