Keeping a houseplant alive means providing it with what it needs in the long term and not forgetting its existence for months.
Keeping a plant alive requires giving it the right amount of sunlight and water, as well as the right soil and nutrients. How much of each will depend on the particular plant, and too much or too little will lead to another death.
The key is to research what your particular plant needs and discover the correct way to provide it. and how to recognize the warning signs that something is out of control if you are doing it wrong. Although this sounds simple, it takes a little practice to get it right.
Some beginner-friendly houseplants include aloe vera, Chinese evergreen, Christmas cactus, silly reed, jade plant, lucky bamboo, snake plant, and peace lily. Although these names may sound unfamiliar to plant newbies, you’ve probably seen them in the homes and apartments of people you know.
