Monstera Delicosa

The Parlor Palm is one of our favorite palms and one of the best houseplants for any home as it is prized for its resilience to indoor conditions and its care being quite low maintenance. Also, since it is a slow-growing palm that stays cute and compact, it often does not reach heights over 3-4 feet.

Snake Plant

Snake Plant is a great beginner’s plant for many reasons. First, it’s practically indestructible—it thrives in both the direct sun as well as low lighting and doesn’t require a lot of water (think once a week). Second, it’s a nocturnal air-purifying plant. Just prop it in the corner of your bedroom and let it get to work while you sleep.

Spider Plant

Despite its creepy-crawly name, the spider plant is one of the best houseplants for those who are inherently bad at caring for plants. With different variations including pure green, and variegation on the outside and the inside, the spider plant can be bottom or top watered about once every two weeks and will grow under any lighting circumstance—from the tiniest of windows to direct exposure to the blazing sun.

Peace Lilly

The name “peace lily” definitely evokes a sense of calm. Peace lilies can live for years and continuously produce broad white flowers that resemble a white peace flag, They’re easy to take care of and don’t need much light, so they’re perfect for shady spaces. Just keep them out of reach from pets and small children, as they can cause vomiting or tongue swelling if they’re ingested.

Rubber Plants

Rubber plants — also known as rubber trees or Ficus elastica — make for great indoor houseplants. They’re generally easy to take care of and only need to be watered every week or so, rubber plants feature air-purifying properties.

The Chinese Money Plant, Coin Plant, or Pilea Peperomioides, is worth spending your money on.
