A downtown loft tour with our very own, Reagan Gibson. This plant lady is sharing the 4-1-1 on keeping indoor plants alive.
I was so excited when Macy asked me to do a post on house plant care and what specific plants I recommend! I always try to give each of my plants all the TLC that they need, but letting them be the subject to an in-home shoot to show them off really reminded me how rewarding it can be to get these botanical beauties in your home and have them thriving. A lot of questions and comments I get from friends are them generally feeling like they don’t know where to start with houseplants and they’re so afraid that they’ll die so quickly. There are so many house plants that are low maintenance and are nearly indestructible, so the best way to get started is to do just that — start! Here are a few house plants that I think are great ‘starter’ plants and will have you wanting to fill your home immediately.
Devil’s Ivy (Pothos Vines)
I cannot recommend Pothos vines enough! These vines are so easy to maintain and can thrive in pretty much any lighting condition and water schedule. However resilient, too much sun can cause their leaves to yellow and ‘burn’, so make sure to have these guys away from a window sill. Pothos usually prefer to be completely dry between watering, so I would recommend watering once every week to week and a half, depending on your pot size and soil completely drying out. Pothos also LOVE to stretch their limbs out. If you see that your vines are getting long and a bit tangled, gently hang their limbs on a few tacked pins around their growing space and you’ll have beautiful vines growing around your walls in no time.
If you’re interested in taking it a step further, these vines can also completely grow in water! If you’ve got some extra jars laying around or even a betta fish bowl (completely safe for betta fish!), trim a few clippings from your Pothos plant and clip the leaves also, so that you can submerge the vine nodes down in room temperature water. You will see how quickly these roots will grow just from changing your water out weekly. Keep them in water for as long as you like, or repot them in indoor nutrient rich soil to start your new Pothos vine!
Swiss Cheese Plant (Monstera Deliciosa)
You’ve probably seen the Swiss Cheese Plant’s iconic split leaf all over your social media feed, whether it be the plant itself or a piece of artwork for your walls. If you’ve got the space for a plant to have its own corner in your home, these tropical plants can grow anywhere from 5 - 10 feet tall and leaves can get as big as 12” in diameter! Swiss Cheese plants cannot handle full sun, so place these plants in a part of your home with partial or full shade. Also, some plants tend to collect some dust if they’re kept in their corners for too long. While dust won’t hurt the plant entirely, it is healthier for the plant (and aesthetically pleasing to plant lovers) to gentle wipe their leaves every now and then and mist their leaves with a plant mister. This will assure that not only are your roots getting the water they need, but also your ever growing leaves as well.
Rubber Plant (Ficus elastica)
Probably one of my favorites plants has to be the Rubber Plant or Rubber Tree. This particular variegation produces the most beautiful, lush green leaves and are so easy to maintain. Rubber plants prefer bright, indirect light, so place these near a window with some sheer curtains to assure their leaves to don’t ‘burn’. A watering schedule for Rubber Plants are super easy but does require some attention. During the warm Spring and Summer months, be sure to water every 7 days or so, while in the cooler winter months you can cut back to about once every week and a half to two weeks. An easy way to check the moisture in the water is to check the top two inches of soil. If you see that it is bone dry, go ahead and water!
Peace Lily (Spathiphyllum)
The Peace Lily is a very common house plant due to how easy they are to maintain and how quickly they grow! These tropical beauties typically grow on the rainforest floor, so try to mimic those conditions by keeping your soil moist (watering at least once a week) and misting a couple times a week. With enough light, your Peace Lily will produce bright white blooms so place these on a well lit shelf near a window to get some bright, filtered light. It won’t hurt your Peace Lily to skip the misting as much, but definitely keep these in your weekly water schedule to make sure they’re staying happy and healthy!
While I only have a few plants listed here, there are so many wonderful house plants that are great ‘starter’ plants that are so easy to maintain! Pop into your local green house or garden center to have a look around, ask someone about the plants I have listed here, or get their opinion on some great house plants and how to care for them. Save our graphic below for a quick reference guide to these plants, or as a print to hang up in your bedroom!
