After wrapping up kitchen or bathroom remodeling in Wheaton, the fun of decorating begins! For most people, fresh flowers and potted houseplants provide a fresh, organic feel. However, many are hesitant to take on caring for a plant due to past experiences—a dead houseplant is not the aesthetic anyone wants! Today, we’ll be naming some of the easiest species to care for.

Pothos Plant

Epipremnum aureum, also known as a pothos plant or devil’s ivy, is a terrific starter houseplant with trailing, heart-shaped leaves. Pothos plants thrive in well-draining soil and bright, indirect light, but also tolerate lower light conditions well. Dry soil and drooping vines are signs that the plant needs to be watered.

Peace Lily

Spathiphyllum, also known as peace lilies, have glossy, dark green leaves and white blooms. Like the pothos, peace lilies prefer bright, indirect light, and tolerate low light conditions well. The soil should be consistently moist but not standing in water. Be sure to let the plant drain before replacing it in its spot.

Snake Plant

Dracaena trifasciata, also known as the snake plant, is a sturdy indoor plant with stiff, vertical leaves. Common varieties have a light green border and/or speckling on the leaves. They prefer bright, indirect light but are tolerant of a variety of light conditions. Allow the soil to dry completely between waterings, taking care to ensure it is never too damp (especially in the winter).
