Indoor plants – easy to care and hard to kill

Reaching that state of life when you want to decorate your rooms with indoor plants you might find yourself in a situation where plants die. Some indoor plants are absolutely gorgeous but require a ton of work and care. 

Nothing makes decoration with indoor plants less appealing than when they just wither. Since a lot of us are busy and don’t have time to prune or spend a lot of time doing more than just watering. 

So here are a few hard-to-kill indoor plants!

Cast iron plant – aspidistra elatior

Not a very popular houseplant but the cast iron plant is a very simplistically beautiful plant. It’s unusual that this plant has fallen out of popularity because it’s a very easy-to-care-for plant. 

The nickname of this plant “cast iron” is basically telling you it’s practically indestructible. Low light, humidity, cold or warm temperatures, this plant just thrives. It grows slowly but it can get huge, up to the ceiling huge.  

Jade plant 

If the cast iron plant is not so popular the jade plant is on the opposite spectrum. Some call it the money plant but there is a different version of a money plant that looks nothing like this one. 

It’s a succulent plant, and as such it doesn’t need a lot of water. Usually, winter time is when you need to water it less but in summer it needs watering about once a week. Let the soil dry before more water is added. 

Chinese evergreen – aglaonema

This beautiful leafy house plant is very beginner friendly. It’s very tolerant and adaptable to forgetful plant parents, and indoor conditions. It needs an average amount of water each day, and it will thrive in low light. 

It also needs moderate temperature conditions so it’s perfect as a house plant. What it will need most of all is to be kept away from drafts, as it can turn the leaves brown. 

Don’t worry if you forget to water it for a day or two, if it’s overwatered it can develop root rot. It’s even advised to let the soil dry out a little before watering again. 

Christmas cactus

A merry little plant that actually blooms around Christmas, from November to January. Even if it’s a popular holiday plant, it requires warm temperatures or around 10-18 degrees Celsius. 

The flowers can vary in colour from pink and red to purple. Watering is the one thing that you need to keep up with and it likes moist soil and even misting. It doesn’t need a lot of sunlight and it should not be left in direct sunlight.  


Houseplants come in all shapes and sizes and a lot of them are very resilient. Choosing the perfect one for your home or desk depends on what type of leaf or texture you want. Luckily there are so many options that you’ll not run out of ideas. 

Succulents are preferred for desk spaces while more luxurious long-leafed ones are perfect for decorating bedrooms or hallways. Make sure to have enough partial shade or direct sunlight when you pick the spot to lace them in.
