1. JADE PLANT

This low-maintenance succulent doesn’t require much. Put it in a spot where it can receive a few hours of sunlight and water it when the soil it completely dry, and you will have a beautiful plant all year long!

2. POTHOS

With its heart- shaped leaves and glossy appearance, what’s not to love about this pothos? Pothos is a distant cousin of the Philodendron. This beauty only needs plenty of indirect sunlight and water when the top inch of the soil is dry.

3. SNAKE PLANT

If you have a black thumb, a snake plant may be perfect for you! All it needs is indirect sunlight and light waterings only when the soil has dried out!

4. CACTI

Cacti thrive in natural light, so find a sunny windowsill or table, and you’re set! Cacti only require watering about once a week when soil dries out, so they’re perfect for the forgetful plant owner!

5.  ALOE PLANT

Beautiful and useful! Aloe plants just need a sunny spot and to be watered once a week when the soil dries out. It’s easy to care for and you’ll always have fresh aloe on hand! It’s a win-win!
