I love hard to kill houseplants, even ones that are easy to kill, lol. Mostly because I believe that they are very important to have in your home and office. Plants are great for making a space not only feel inviting but they also improve your air quality.
People often tell me that I have a “green thumb” and I'm always very tickled. Let me be the first to say that I do have a bit of color on my thumb but it sure isn't green.
Over the years and going through trial and error, I've learned how to select houseplants that are hard to kill. In this blog post, I'm going to share with you three houseplants that will have everyone saying that you have a “green thumb” too.
Annndddd, I'm also including REALLY GOOD fake plants that won't disappoint, just in case you don't want to mess around with real plants. Yes, girl, I got you!
I'm also dropping deets as to why Feng Shui enthusiast love them. Don't keep this a secret, share it with your friends so that they'll receive the “you have a green thumb” compliments too, LOL. I hope you enjoy it.
Three Hard to Kill Houseplants
This website uses commissionable links.
Golden pothos (Epipremnum aureum): This beauty has leaves splashed with yellow, the vines on this easy-to-grow plant can easily exceed 20 feet.
This plant grows well in a bright but sunless spot, as the leaves will fade when grown in poor light conditions. Feng Shui practitioners love this plant because its great for removing toxins from the air.
Mother-in-laws Tongue (Sansevieria): Also called a snake plant, this is a very hardy plant that will last years indoors in a low light area. According to feng shui, because the leaves of Sansevieria grow upwards, the plants can be used for feng shui purposes.
Some feng shui practicers believe that having Sansevieria near children helps reduce coarseness, although care must be taken to ensure the child cannot reach the plant's poisonous leaves. Others recommend placing pots near the toilet tank to counter the drain-down vibrations.
Dracaena (Dracaena marginata), also known as dragon tree, is an attractive, stiff-leaved plant with green sword-like leaves edged with red. The plant has narrow, slender gray stems that are topped with shiny, arching leaves that are sword-shaped. These plants are perfect for a beginner gardener because they're very easy to grow indoors.
