Philodendron is known to be one of the easiest tropical plants to take care of due to the fact that they can survive in either light or dark rooms AND they can go up to a month without being watered! Of course, like any plant, the philodendron will grow better and faster if exposed to more light than dark. Philodendron can survive both indoors and outdoors, but you’ll likely find yourself struggling to maintain the plant outside in the winter months if you don’t live in a warm climate year-round. To ensure success in keeping your philodendron alive, try to keep the room that it’s in above 55 degrees Fahrenheit (13 degrees Celsius) at all times.
Most of us know some of the amazing things aloe vera can do for your body (especially if you’re prone to sunburn), but did you know that the aloe vera plant is super simple to take care of by yourself at home? That’s right, you can have aloe vera whenever you need it. You only need to add water to the soil if you notice it’s absolutely as dry as it can be, which also makes your life easier because you won’t have to worry about whether you watered your plants last night. You can leave your aloe vera plant inside or outside, as long as it’s exposed to sunlight during the day. Just be sure not to leave the plant outside during the winter, as aloe vera, like most of us, does not love the cold!
Cacti are the perfect plant for someone who truly wants the beauty of plants without the hassle of taking care of them. You can leave a cactus in the sun for weeks on end with no water and it’ll be totally fine. In fact, most people who kill their cacti plant do so because they try to water it too much. Remember that cacti live in thrive in the desert, so they don’t need as much water as the average plant! Cacti come in tons of different shapes, sizes, and colors, which makes it even more fun to buy a variety of them for your house!
