Growing indoor plants can be just as easy and fun as keeping an exterior garden. Indoor plants are not only beautiful decorations; they also maintain their surroundings fresh and clean without much effort.

However, if you’re worried about your new additions dying on you, or you’re simply looking for an easy-to-keep indoor bush, today we found the best 8 plants to grow in the house.

Aloe

Anyone can grow aloe without having much trouble. Appreciated by its medicinal properties, aloe makes a great indoor plant that needs little maintenance. Just make sure it’s placed in a sunny spot. Aloe prefers dry soil, so it’s best to avoid frequent watering.

Ficus

This indoor tree will freshen up any indoor area. It’s also versatile and its stems can be braided for a nice effect. This plant, however, likes full sun, and a room temperature that’s between 65 and 75 degrees. Just as with aloe, ficuses need dry soil and periodic watering.

English Ivy

Ivy is elegant and it trails down furniture for an appealing effect. Just by cutting off a section of the stem you can start a new indoor plant for yourself. The English Ivy also makes a great gift for friends and family, that takes only two weeks to start growing, coupled with an ease of care.

If you want to keep your brand new English Ivy from spoiling, be aware that it likes humid soil and cooler room temperature environments.

Spider Plant

After years of popularity, the indoor Spider Plant has never gone out of fashion. Plus, they come in an impressive number of varieties and are amazing as hanging plants that require moist soil and bright to medium lighting conditions. Keep them from dying on you by providing a room temperature that goes between 60 to 75 degrees.

Rubber Tree

This easy-to-grow indoor houseplant with dark green shiny leaves can grow into an 8-foot-tall tree. Yes, you heard that right! Make your rubber tree into a shrub shape by clipping any long stems. Rubber trees need their soil to dry out in between watering.

Peace Lilly

This popular houseplant can be found in many homes with its curving white blooms and dark leaves. The Peace Lilly is easy to grow and requires low humidity and light. Place it in a room with few windows, and make sure it has a moist soil. This plant tolerates a temperature of 85 degrees, so take note of that before acquiring one.

Snake Plant

Also known as mother-in-law's tongue, the snake plant possesses multicolored leaves that grow upright, with yellow or white edges. It has small, white flowers that bloom occasionally. Taking care of it is very easy; the soil should be somewhat dry, just as in the Ficus case.

Jade Plant

It doesn't get much easier than this succulent with dense, lush leaves and visually stimulating branches that grow slowly. Jade plants thrive in bright lighting conditions and ordinary room temperatures. Also, they don't require much water, so keep the soil dry if you want to maintain them healthy.
