What are the best houseplants for beginners?

Thinking of becoming a first-time plant parent?

It’s something we’ve all thought about, tried out, completely avoided or fallen in love with and we seek to encourage this as much as possible. The art of looking after plants is less complex than you think and in this short post we hope to give you that confidence.

If reading isn’t for you, make sure to check out our Founders recent 'houseplants for beginners' video over on TikTok.


If reading is for you, then here we go…

We’ve spent time categorising our plants - whether thats through their light needs, care needs or even health benefits. That said, there’s two main categories you want to be looking at as an entry level plant parent.


Now I should start by saying that these are the {almost} unkillables. All plants are living organisms meaning that just like us they need a level of care to survive. However, this carefully crafted list of plants is made up of the most hardy plants out there. Plants that can still thrive on neglect like the Cast Iron, ZZ, Snake Plant and many more.

What makes a plant easy-care compared to unkillable I hear you ask. Well it's a subtle difference in care needs. Although all the plants included in this category are deemed easy-care there is slightly more consideration that needs to be taken when it comes to watering and light needs.

The majority of these easy-care plants are shade-tolerant, can thrive on periods of drought and shouldn’t give you too much of a care headache. Some real highlights of the category include the Boston Fern, Monkey Mask and Peace LilyWith these plants we always like to say the less care, the best care - only give them a water when the top 2 inches of soil are completely dry.

So, If you’re a houseplant beginner then stick to any plants across these two collections and you’ll be able to watch them thrive. If you do have any questions, please contact us today and one of the team would be happy to help.
