7 Easiest Houseplants for Busy Moms
There's no doubt about it, houseplants have the power to bring positive energy to your space. From the scientific benefits of air purifying and increased oxygen to the emotional impact of bringing the outdoors in, plants are a wonderful way to raise the vibe of your home. But when you're already overwhelmed with keeping the tiny humans alive and well, high maintenance plants aren't the most practical way to go. So here are 7 of the easiest houseplants for busy moms to enjoy:
Snake Plant (Dracaena trifasciata)
Sometimes called a "Mother-In-Law's Tongue", the snake plant is an excellent low maintenance addition to your home. These beauties prefer indirect light and can even survive in that corner of your home that gets very little. We've got two in our bathroom, the only room in the house that receives no natural light, and they are are doing just fine! Just allow their soil to fully dry out between watering, as snake plants don't like to hang out in overly soggy soil. Breathe deeply and enjoy, as they are some of the best air purifying houseplants out there!
Pothos Vine (Epipremnum aureum)
There are many varieties of these lovely plant, sometimes referred to as "Devil's Ivy". The good news? All of them do well in a variety of light conditions, but expect growth to occur faster in areas of more sunlight. They are hard to kill, and give you warning signs of being quite droopy should you forget about them. Just throw a little water their way and they perk right back up! From the classic "Golden" and its variegated leaves to the "Marble Queen" or "Neon" varieties, there's sure to be a Pothos that strikes you. And fun fact... they are very easily propagated to share plant babies with family or friends. Keep them away from the mouths of your kiddos, dogs, or cats as they can cause some serious discomfort if consumed.
