Here are some perfect indoor plants for your home.
The snake plant is also hilariously known as mother-in-law's tongue because of its sharp leaves, and it's a great, low-maintenance plant for gardening beginners. Thought it's able to handle low light, these plants really thrive in spaces with lots of light. Be careful not to overwater, though, as they're prone to root rot.
Preferred light: Bright spaces, but will be fine in low light as well
Pothos come in a number of leaf patterns and colors, making them a fun variety to have in your home. They are easy to care for, and manage in low light.
Preferred light: Medium light
The spider plant has become one of the most popular houseplants, since they're easy to grow and suffer from very few problems. Spider plants are named as such because new growths dangle from the mother plant, much like spiders from their web.
Preferred light: Medium light, though are capable of surviving in low light conditions, including artificial light
Philodendrons are hard to kill! They are very common and can be found at your local gardening center, and come in a variety of colors, shapes, and sizes.
Preferred light: Best in medium or bright light, but can tolerate low light
Peace lilies are some of the easiest plants to care for and blossom beautifully. The more light you provide for your peace lily, the more flowers will grow. Less light will result in plant more akin to a traditional foliage plant.
Preferred light: Medium to low light
Succulents are adorable and near impossible to kill. Be sure not to overwater them, though, because they don't need a whole lot to survive!
Preferred light: Bright light
Rubber plants are show-stopping plants, and will grow to quite a large size while developing hardier leaves with age. Be sure to avoid direct sunlight, and let the soil dry out before you water your rubber plant.
Preferred light: Medium to bright indirect light
Dracaena plants are popular due to the fact that they look highly exotic. Like the rubber plant, be sure to allow the soil to dry between waterings, and make sure your pets don't get a bite of them as they can be very poisonous.
Preferred light: Medium to bright light
Yucca plants do great in a partially shaded area of bright and indirect light, which will yield vibrant leaf colors. They're also great for those who forget to water their plants, as they have low water requirements.
Preferred light: Indirect bright light
