The Coolest Houseplants That Are Actually Easy To Take Care Of

Snake Plant

“The color variations on the leaves make them really striking, and they work well as floor plants because they gain height quickly, which is a necessity for curating your plant corners,” 


As an anthurium owner myself, I can confirm they’re about as low maintenance as it comes. “These tropical plants have glossy leaves and interesting, colorful blooms to turn any home into an oasis,” says Hewitt. 

Rhaphidophora Decursiva

“If you love the Monstera plant, you’ll definitely love this more interesting climbing aroid,” says Puneet Sabharwal, CEO & Co-Founder of Horti.

ZZ Zenzi

Welcome to the jungle! If you’re looking for a houseplant that pretty much wants you to neglect it (okay, within reason!) then get yourself a ZZ Zenzi. 

Ric Rac Cactus

If you rarely ever remember to water your plants, the Ric Rac will be your BFF. It’s one of Hewitt’s absolute favorites. “I love the shape of the leaves paired with a taupe pot,” she tells us. 

Aloe Vera

If you’re a fan of succulents, you’ll love the aloe vera, especially considering how long they last. Hewitt has had one for 30 years that she inherited from a fellow florist.

Epipremnum Pinnatum Neon Variegata 

“A variety of Pothos that’s fairly new to the market, the leaves are more narrow with neon yellow and green variegation all over them,” says Sabharwal. 

Xerographica Air Plant

“The Xerographica curls around its pot, and for something so low maintenance, adds so much to a space,” notes Hewitt.
