Your guide to easy house plants

You CAN keep your houseplants alive. This time WILL be different.

Here is what you’re going to do to become a thriving plant parent!

You’re gonna go to the store (scroll down for our recommendations), look for these plants, and follow our instructions word for word. It’s gonna take courage, but we know you can do it. We’ll be with you every step of the way.

Snake plants: Prefer shade to partial sun and sandy, well-drained soil. Water when the soil is dry. Avoid overwatering.

ZZ plants: Prefer medium to bright indirect light, up to six hours a day. Water every 2-3 weeks and let the soil dry out in between waterings.


Pothos plants: Tolerate most any light well, except for direct sunlight. Can be grown in water or dry soil. Only water when the soil feels dry.


Jade plants: Prefer bright indirect light. Water when the soil is dry and prune dead or shriveled branches.

Rubber trees: Like bright indirect light. In the winter, when rubber trees are dormant, water every 2 to 3 weeks.
