Easy House Plants to Look After

Monstera

Monsteras are so easy to look after! And are actually fairly hardy. Watering is fairly simple, water once a week in the winter and twice a week in the summer. Try not to leave these guys in direct sunlight or too close to a heater! I bought my first cheese plant a year and a half a go and ‘Big Cheese’ is now 4ft high!

Aloe Vera

Another easy plant to look after, the little Aloe Vera is a friendly little thing. I keep my Aloe Vera’s in our downstairs bathroom as it sucks out all the moisture from the shower! Again, keep out of direct sunlight.

Trailing Ivy

A new addition to my plant family, the Trailing Ivy is another plant which is very easy to look after. Water once a week to keep the leaves nice and healthy!

Rubber Plants

Resilient as rubber! Rubber Plants are very hardy. They like sunlight so make sure to pop them on the window sill. Make sure to water them once a week in the winter and twice a week in the summer.

  1. My rubber plant loves my kitchen window sill ๐Ÿ™‚ cheese plant on my eternal must buy list – do your cats get on well with these plants? My two are cheeky boys!

    Also try out โ€˜Snake Plantsโ€™ I was reliably informed they thrive on neglect ๐Ÿค“๐ŸŒฑ

    1. You need a cheese plant! And I definitely need one of these โ€˜Snakeโ€™ plants!

      Theyโ€™re mainly good with them. Ziggy did have a little nibble on one of my cheese plants but didnโ€™t like the taste ๐ŸŒฟ๐ŸŒฟ๐ŸŒฟ Iโ€™ve heard about your naughty mice boys ๐Ÿ˜‚

  2. I got myself a couple of succulents! (I think the Aloe classifies as that) Sooo easy to take care of them! And believe me, I don’t have the best track record with plants (one of my first blog posts was about ‘fake’ plants!)
