Plants are great for a lot of purposes including improving your mental health, improving the quality of the air we breath and humidity levels, interior and exterior decor, protection from erosion…just all kinds of things.

Growing plants is a great hobby to have or at least give a try. If you are interested in getting a plant or want to add another to the collection you should give these easy-to-grow plants a try.

Succulents

Succulents are really easy to take care of, and they come in all different colors, shapes and sizes!

They tend to thrive in sunlight and are drought tolerant. Succulents also great decorations for outside or inside. 

Aloe Vera  or any type of Aloe

Aloe is the best and I think everyone needs at least one aloe plant.

Not only does it look pretty and green, but it also comes with benefits for healing burns and relieving bug bites. It’s also great for hair, clears acne and is a must in your skin care routine. Aloe even improves digestion. It’s just a really cool plant overall.

Money tree 

Money tree was the first plant I ever got.

It needs indirect sunlight and grows pretty tall. Once winter hits, putting a money tree next to the window is the ideal spot. This plant is really easy to take care of, and it grows so fast.

Here’s a Tip: You can tell if a plant needs water by picking up the pot and seeing if its light or heavy. If it’s light, then it means it can be watered. But, if it’s heavy that means there is still water in the soil.

Also remember that plants are not always successful for everyone. It’s all about trial and error, but if you are successful and have a green thumb then you can start collecting plants that interest you.
