Having plants in your home is not only visually appealing, but they are good for your health as well. They produce oxygen and consume carbon dioxide, freshening up the air in the house and removing harmful toxins. Studies have shown that indoor plants are the best choice for your home and workspace, as they improve concentration and productivity, reduce stress levels, and boost your mood.
Whether you live in a small apartment or a big house, an indoor garden can be a source of joy, health and happiness. Gardening is not just about putting new plants; it also about taking care of them. This includes weeding, pruning, watering, transplanting, and nurturing them. You should also ensure that they get apt sunlight, water, and manure required for their growth.
It is not easy to find either the time or enthusiasm to maintain an indoor garden in today’s busy life. The exotic and visually appealing plants you brought with so much fanfare require regular maintenance; else they lose their shine and zeal. The plants you bring with so much love and fondness become a hassle to maintain daily. It is a tricky puzzle when you want to have an indoor garden, but not enough time to maintain it.

Below are 5 types of indoor plants handpicked by Pharande spaces, that not only make your home look beautiful and greener, but are easy to maintain as well:
- Snake plant
This plant’s leaves are thin and upright, with an irregular green band that looks like snakeskin. It not only looks amazing but is also easy to maintain as it requires less water. While these plants prefer bright light, they can survive on duller light as well.
These are referred to as the cubicle plant; they start small and grow over 10 feet long. It is easy to maintain, as it can survive in gloomier lights and dry air. You can get as many plants you want for the price of one.
- ZZ plant
Do you live in a place with not enough sunlight? Need not worry, as this plant survives easily in low light and droughts. This is a low-maintenance plant that has large potato-like rhizomes below the surface of its potting mix.
- Spider plant
This plant is easy to care, as it requires brighter light but not direct sunlight. You can put it in a room with huge windows, and keep it away from the windowsill. It is a strong air purifier, removing both formaldehyde and xylene from the air in the room.
- Aloe Vera
Known for its healing properties, aloe vera is easy to maintain as well. The plant requires a lesser quantity of water and not so bright light to thrive daily. Keep it in a sunny area in your home, and see how it purifies the air of your house.
These easy-to-grow plants can survive in any weather condition and don’t require daily care. Watering them once a week and providing adequate light is enough for these plants to grow in your house.
