5 Low-Maintenance Indoor Plants To Get For Your Home


With the air in the city deteriorating by the day, having ample plants in your house may mean the difference between clean, fresh air to breath and always feeling choked out inside your own house. Unfortunately, a number of plants don’t lend to easy maintenance and finding time to look after them {especially with our busy schedules} can prove to be difficult.

To make your lives easier, we have put together some of the most low-maintenance houseplants that don’t require much work to keep alive and can go a long way in improving the air quality as well as the decor quotient of your living room.

Aloe Vera

Aloe vera requires the soil to completely dry out before you have to water it again, and that may mean going up to three weeks with little attention from your part. Apart from looking good, its leaves also provide quick relief for minor wounds and burns.

Money Plant

It’s one of the most common plants found in houses across India, as the air and level of humidity in most places here suit it. It doesn’t take a lot to maintain unless you’re absolutely negligent about it. Besides it also integrates with almost any décor layout that you may choose.

Snake Plant

Also known as the ribbon plant, it’s another one that doesn’t need any watering for up to two weeks. It goes well in tiny corners and does well on its own without other plants to go with it due to its unique look, so feel free to design your bedroom layout around it.


In case you forgot your primary school biology lessons, all varieties of cactus are extremely robust and don’t require much/any maintenance to stay alive on their own. Just make sure to place it somewhere you don’t bump into it, as those thorns can pinch.


A beautiful plant with dull orange flowers, Clivia does well in cool areas, so make sure to take it further indoor than the living room window. They also don’t require much care, as they’re native to the arid regions of Southern Africa.

What are you waiting for? Head out and buy these right away.
