7 Indoor Plants That Are Low Maintenance for the Beginner Gardener ...

If you’re someone who has a funny track record with growing plants, but have always yearned for a green thumb, then don’t fret because there are a lot of indoor plants that are low maintenance and easy to take care of. As a beginner gardener, it’s hard to grow plants in general, let alone under unpredictable weather conditions. My advice is to start with indoor plants first, and move to the outdoors later if you’re feeling up to it. There are many benefits to growing indoor plants: they give off oxygen, absorb harmful substances in the air, and add a homey atmosphere to your living space. So here are seven indoor plants that are low maintenance to start your garden.

1. Cactus

Cactus is probably the easiest to take care of in this list of indoor plants that are low maintenance. Cacti originate from areas that are extremely dry (like deserts) which makes it a plant that is really low maintenance when it comes to watering. Depending on the size and type, cactus should only be watered once or twice a month. Just make a mental note of when you last watered it, because cacti do not like to be overwatered. And if you’re not into the prickly look, there are certain cacti that sprout beautiful flowers.
