Indoor plants, otherwise known as houseplants, are plants that can be grown and remain indoors and are relatively easy to grow and easy to care for. There are also 12 different indoor varieties of indoor plants you can’t kill which makes any of them the perfect choice for someone who may be a bit unsure or is lacking a lot of time.
Indoor plants are so easy to grow and care for, they practically grow themselves. The only real concern you will have to face is where to put all the indoor plants you have collected around the home.
Having indoor plants yield several different benefits including helping to reduce carbon dioxide levels, increases humidity, and also reduces the levels of certain pollutants that are contained within the home. Indoor plants have also been found to help reduce the number of airborne dust particles within the home as well.
Aloe - a succulent that requires a minimal amount of water. This plant prefers to be in bright but indirect sunlight and also loves cooler temperatures. The aloe plant will thrive for years, even when remaining in the same container
Cast Iron Plant - this plant prefers shade or low light areas in the home and will grow in clumps indoors and will occasionally flower
Chinese Evergreen - this plant is able to adapt to almost any indoor environment and likes indirect and low light. The soil should remain dry for several days before the plant is watered again
Christmas Cactus - this cactus will produce more flowers when it is placed in brighter sunlit areas in the home. However, it will also do fine when it is ignored and placed in a lower sunlit area
Dumb Cane - this plant prefers a warmer indoor temperature and should not be placed too close to a window where they may be a draft. If there are pets or children in the home, you will want to be more cautious and keep it out of their reach
Jade - this is one of the most common indoor plants but may also be the hardest to maintain. It needs to have access to a lot of bright sunlight, and you must be precise with the watering. Too much water can cause the roots to rot, and the leaves will begin to drop if it gets too thirsty

Mother-in-Law Tongue - also known as a snake plant, this indoor plant will last a long time in the home and prefers low light and requires a minimal amount of water. However, you will want to pay attention to which variation of this plant you own because some of them may require more sunlight and may prove a bit more difficult to grow
Peace Lily - this plant prefers to be in warmer and humid conditions and should never be placed near a window or anywhere there may be a draft or cooler temperature
Pothos - this is a good choice for indoor plants because it is extremely easy to care for and almost impossible to kill. They can tolerate all sorts of lighting conditions including artificial light and just requires a bit of pruning to maintain its appearance

Spider Plants - this is the plant you will typically see planted into baskets around the home and can grow to be around three feet and will only need to be repotted every few years
