Mamas, I have a long track record as a plant-killer. I didn’t mean to hurt any of them, but I was lousy at remembering to water them or figure out how much light they needed. BUT… I’ve turned over a new leaf. (Yep… I did it.)
I did some research to figure out what types of plants would be best for people like me who need a low-maintenance plant. I started with two different types — the ZZ plant and the Snake plant — and those did so well that now I’ve moved on to a Prayer plant. So far so good! They’re all still alive! And there’s no denying that a real houseplant adds a certain warmth and vibrancy to any room.
If you’re looking for a list of plants that are fairly easy to care for and don’t require a ton of natural light, here’s a great plant resource we found on The Pioneer Woman website. I especially love the Prayer plant because it’s leaves look like they’ve been intricately painted, and they move together and upward (like praying hands) at the end of the day.
