December 10, 2015

It’s always nice to have an outdoor garden or a few indoor plants in your home. Not only do they brighten up the atmosphere, but they are able to add a touch of nature to your space.

Plant Maintenance

If you are not a person who has a lot of time on their hands, it might be hard for you to tend to your plants often. In this article, we’re looking at a few low maintenance plants you might be interested in, as well as our top 3 tips that will help you to keep on top of your plant maintenance!

Low-Maintenance Indoor Plants

  • Pothos
  • This plant is so easy to care for and it has air purifying qualities that absorb and strip toxins that can be found in materials in your home. You can have it in a hanging basket or just as a climbing plant that is supported by whatever object you would like. The stems can be long (8 feet or longer), so you will need to cut them down once in awhile.

    Pothos plants are able to thrive in a variety of lighting conditions and temperatures.

  • Aloe
  • This plant has long pointed leaves that have medicinal properties. It can grow to about 3 feet high in an indoor setting – if you have a smaller space – try aloe vera. Aloe plants like room temperatures of about 20 degrees or so and they enjoy a lot of sunlight. You don’t have to water it frequently as it prefers dry soil.

  • English Ivy
  • This plant is timeless, it adds a touch of elegance to your home. English ivy plants like a cooler room temperature and moist soil – they are a popular indoor plant option and so easy to take care of.

Low-Maintenance Outdoor Plants

  • Sedum
  • This plant is one that you don’t have to worry about. It is one of the most reliable plants around and it has such bright colouring even into the fall months. It will emerge in the spring and bloom from late summer to the end of fall.

  • Coreopsis
  • This plant is a tough one and it’s extremely beautiful. You can find it in a few colourful varieties including pink, orange, yellow and bright red.

  • Hens-and-Chicks
  • This plant is one tough cookie and it has limitless possibilities. It can go days without water, so it’s extremely forgiving.

If you want to have healthy plants:

  • Give them good food – find a plant food that works for your plants.
  • Give them light– find a spot that works well for the particular plant and change the spot once in awhile.
  • Keep them in the right temperature – different plants thrive in different temperatures, make sure you know your plants and what they need.

Don’t forget that dust and chemical cleaners are extremely toxic to plants. Ensure that you’re cleaning large, leafy plants are being cleaned regularly with a damp cloth, and use only organic cleaners near your plants!
