I‘ve been a plant addict long before I owned a home – I think it’s an easy addiction when you live in the concrete jungle where plants are so far and few in between. Not only that but plants are a great way to purify the air in your space – and has even been proven to reduce stress levels. What I didn’t expect was the influx of plant moms in 2020. Since I know greenery is such a big trend right now, I wanted to share some of my favorite house plants that require little maintenance and are extremely easy to take care of.

Bird of Paradise

One of the first house plants I knew I wanted for my home was the Bird of Paradise. I love the broad, arching leaves, which lends an exotic, tropical look. Since they can grow over 6 ft tall, they make a space feel instantly lush. That said, this plant isn’t necessarily the easiest to care for, but if you have good draining soil, lots of sunlight, and can water your plants on a schedule, you’ll have no problem with these.

ZZ Plant

If you live in a city where you don’t get a ton of light and winters can be harsh, the ZZ plant is perfect. The plant has the ability to store water, which helps it survive even in droughts. I like the fact that it only needs indirect light to do well, which means your options for placement around the house are pretty much endless. With that in mind, this plant also makes one of my favorites to give as a gift.

Fiddle-Leaf Fig Tree

Another house plant that’s a favorite among literally everyone is the Fiddle-Leaf Fig tree. The long stem and broad leaves make a cozy addition to the house. Most people tend to struggle caring for the plant, but as long as you don’t over-water it, keep the leaves clean, and place it next to a window (facing south), you’ll be fine.

Monstera Plant

I love the monstera plant because of the unique cut-out leaves. The beauty of this house plant is that you can cut off a piece with the air roots and re-plant it to grow more. You only need to water it once a week, waiting until the soil is dry before watering again.

Aloe Plant

There are so many good reasons to keep an aloe plant around. They’re not only extremely easy to care for but boast tons of healing and air purification benefits. If you ever burn yourself, break off a piece and rub the gel onto tbhe wound – the results are pretty instant. Aloe can stay dry for a long time so you can water it like once every three months and be fine.

Castiron Plant

If you like the look of lush, dark greens, the castiron plant is a great option worth looking into. I like that leaves grow tall and that it does well in low light. If you forget to water it every now and then, it shouldn’t cause you any major issues.

Snake Plant

The snake plant isn’t particularly pet-friendly, but it is great for the house. They can survive a variety of lighting conditions and works wonders for the air. The only thing you need to do on your part is ensuring it gets adequate drainage.


Like aloe, succulents are also easy to take care of… As long as they receive plenty of sunlight, are rotated, and watered when the top starts to dry out, you’re good to go. They add a bit of a boho, relaxed California vibe, which I love.
