Are you feeling the winter blues and craving some springtime cheer? A great way to add some spring into your home is through plants. If you are apprehensive due to time and care, let me introduce you to a few low-maintenance house plants that are sure to bring you some joy. Disclaimer: I know that having plants can be intimidating to some, but I can assure you that these plants will be easy enough to maintain for everyone.
There are a few different types of snake plants that you can pick up at a nursery or your local hardware store. They require low light and can handle being watered once a week. You can let them get full in one pot or separate them out into smaller pots once it starts to take off.
Again your local store will potentially have a variety of these house plants. I personally have golden pothos plants. All three of them have doubled in size and have runners. I haven't personally propagated them, but I know it is easy to do if you don't want to have long vines. These plants require low light and may require a bit more watering than the snake plants; it depends on the humidity in your home.
This is one of my most resilient plants personally speaking. It likes filtered sunlight, and it loves water. It is important to maintain a balance when watering this plant; it loves water, but you need to be careful not to overwater it. I check mine more frequently than my other plants to make sure it is not on the verge of wilting. If it wilts, I just add water and it will spring back instantly.
House plants and their care have been one of the best things I was able to discover in 2020. I hope this helps inspire you to buy a plant or two. Having the green indoors really helps combat the winter blues.
