Four household plants you can’t kill

We’d all like a few indoor plants to brighten up our home and purify the air a bit. But if you aren’t particularly green-fingered, you might feel like you can’t offer them a good enough home.

Well think again – we’ve found five of the hardiest indoor plants around, so you don’t have to worry about coming home to a sad, old, withered up plant.

Dracaena marginata (also known as dragon tree)
This plant survives in bright locations, so keep it on your windowsill or somewhere the sun shines. It also doesn’t like to be too wet, so get one of those pots with holes in the bottom and keep it elevated so the excess water can drain out.

This plant is tolerant to draughts, and while you shouldn’t let it go too long without a drink, it will recover quickly. Sounds good to us!


Snake plant
Apparently these plants need such little light, they could even survive in a closet. Not that we’d recommend keeping it there.

This leafy vine survives with low light and irregular watering, so what could go wrong?
