Gardening is my newly developed hobby and a reprieve from chaos too. I’m fairly new to gardening and I started my journey as a “Plant Killer”. With time and lots of Googling & Pinteresting (learning from Pinterest), I learned how not to kill plants by my Experimental Gardening.
When it comes to indoor plants I started my journey with Cactus and Succulents, I ended up killing half of the plants due to overwatering. Then I soon realized my mistake and planted the new ones. With my regained confidence I moved on to Peace lily, Boston fern, Spider plant and many more. I’m going to share my list of indoor plants that require less care and add tremendous beauty and positivity to your house.
My list of hardy Indoor Plants:
Table of Contents
It’s a cute plant with lots of hanging branches it can live well in less light and sunlight well.
Water: 5-6 days
Tip: Keep it out in sunlight once/ twice a month for a few hours.
It’s a beautiful dark-leaved plant with white flowers. It comes under the category of Air Purifier. It needs very less light and less humidity.
Sunlight: less/ indirect
Water: 5-10 days
Tip: Let it dry completely in between watering the plant.
It’s a hardy plant like aloe vera it needs very little care and flourishes well in dim light too. It’s an air purifier plant.
Sunlight: direct to rare
Water: 5-10 days
Tip: They’re desert plants so they can thrive well in direct sunlight and in rare light well too. They need a lot of light so indirect light is also good for them or else keep them outside in the direct sun once a week if you’ve planted it in low light.
It’s a beautiful light green colored plant with multiple drooping twines. It looks good in a spiller planter. It requires very little care and infrequent watering.
Sunlight: medium/ rare
Water: 5-10 days
Tip: You can keep the plant in sunlight for a few hours if the tips start turning yellow.
Haworthia (succulent)/ Cactus
They can survive adverse situations. They could survive with very less water and frequent/medium sunlight. A preferable place for these plants would be a window sill
Sunlight: direct/ frequent
Water: 10-15 days
Tip: They thrive well in harsh sunlight.

It’s a low light indoor plant but I survive well in humidity so it’s the best plant to survive on your bathroom window. The care level is slightly high for orchids but they look marvelous inside the house.
Watering: 5-10 days
Tip: Keep spraying water in between for it to survive well.
They’re found in every home. They could grow out of a small twine too. Just plant it in direct water jar or in a planter they can survive both well. They’re creepers so they have a tendency to climb.
They require very little care and can live in a bathroom or most places well. They can survive in indirect light but the harsher sun could kill the plant.
Few more plants are very good for indoor purpose but I’ve not yet tried them out:
- Rubber plant
- Jade plant
- English Ivy
- Ficus tree
- Palm tree
- Aloe Vera
That’s all, for now, I’ll get back with more on summer plants when I’ll do my winter to summer transition of plants.
Thrive like a Cactus and Bloom like a Lily.
Be happy and Positive.
