The amount of indoor plants in the average household has increased by about 400% since the 1970s. There are countless reasons why more and more people are opting for houseplants over traditional décor like paintings and furniture, but we're here to talk about three of our favorite houseplants that won't be hard on your attention span. Houseplants can help purify the air and reduce stress while providing you with a little green oasis to look at whilst spending time inside. So whether you're looking for a new hobby or just want to add some life to your home, check out these three plants you can easily care for at home.
The areca palm is a great houseplant for people who love a little bit of greenery without a lot of fuss. It's a tough, durable plant that thrives in dry, indoor environments and makes a beautiful addition to any room. If you don't want to spend hours caring for your plants every week, an areca palm is a perfect choice. They're low maintenance and will grow well in high-light or low-light settings. Plus, they're easy to move from room to room when you want them to look their best. In general, palms aren't challenging plants to care for unless you have issues with humidity in your home. If you live in a humid climate, there are other houseplants that might be better for you! The areca palm can tolerate lower humidity levels so it's still worth considering if you have trouble with indoor humidity levels.
Money trees are often used to bring good fortune and wealth, but they're also perfect for adding some green to your home. Money trees are low-maintenance plants that can tolerate a range of indoor conditions. They need at least six hours of sunlight each day, so be sure to place it near a window to get the most out of your money tree! Plant lovers should note that while the money tree isn't extremely difficult to take care of, it's not an ideal plant for beginners. For those who don't have much experience with indoor plants, we recommend looking into our other suggestions first, but it's a great second plant when you're up for the next challenge.
The peace lily is a beloved houseplant because it's so easy to care for. Peace lilies are known for being tolerant of low light, so they're perfect for people who don't have enough natural light in their home. They can grow up to three feet tall with leaves that are typically green or dark green in color. Their roots are usually white when bought, but will turn brown as they age. This plant generally needs to be watered once every two weeks and only needs dry soil between watering periods. Peace lilies will require more frequent watering during the warmer months and less during the cooler months of the year; they're pretty flexible plants! Plus, they're one of the few plants that can actually purify your air and remove some toxins from your home's environment.
