The 5 easiest indoor plants to care for
If you are looking for an indoor plant that brings a lot of nature and a lot of green, Ficus Lyrata is the one you are looking for. In addition, it grows quite a lot so you can give it a lot of prominence in any corner of the house. It is evergreen, very resistant and needs very easy care: do not give the light directly, do not water it excessively and do not withstand temperatures below 15 degrees. It´s simple, right?
Not all plants bring only greenery, there are also those that add a lot of color to our rooms. One of them is Croton that mixes, in addition to the green color, reddish and brown tones. Its care is also very simple: place it near a window so that the sun’s rays reach it, water it sparingly (without drenching its roots) and spray it with warm water from time to time.
Fern is a very decorative plant, in addition it grows tall. With a very special aesthetic, it does not require too much maintenance: simply water it without excess and place it in a place without direct sun. And remember that it can grow a lot so, if you like it with a large size, look for a pot and a wide corner.
If you are one of those who cannot hold plants for a week, cacti are your allies. And, as we all know, they hardly need water (although they do need light). How to include them in our house? As there are more than 2000 varieties of cacti, the possibilities to decorate our rooms are endless. The common thing is to place them, if it is a large variety, giving it prominence in some corner of the room. And if what you are looking for is to give a decorative touch to a space, you can combine different options on a table, a dresser or on a window sill.
Surely when you hear about Aloe Vera the classic after-sun lotions come to mind. This plant has many medicinal properties.
