Plants that need little water

Species in tropical areas and humid forests are accustomed to receiving a large amount of water. On the opposite side are those that come from the driest and driest places on the planet, where the amounts of fluid that reach them are minimal. They have had to adapt to the environment and develop a series of special capacities to optimize their water reserves to the maximum.

Plants that don't need a lot of water are not very demanding when it comes to watering, which makes them perfect for decorating homes and gardens without having to keep an eye on the watering can.
With them you will be able to show off your greenery, even if you are absent for a few days, or are a nullity for gardening!

7 Plants That Don't Need A Lot Of Water

  • Sansevieria

It's an extraordinarily hardy houseplant, perfect for the most denier! Its appearance is simple but attractive, with huge green leaves with yellow edges growing vertically. It will give an elegant and original touch to any room.

The care it requires is minimal as it adapts to almost any type of environment. To maintain its intense color and vigour it needs a lot of light, but never directly. You can also place it in shadier environments, although its growth will be slowed down. To survive, it will settle for a few sporadic waterings, being able to go for long periods without receiving a drop of water.

To enhance any corner of your home instantly, you will only need to take some bamboo branches, and place them in a container with water, renewing it when you remember. Plus, it's good luck!

  • Philodendron

Contrary to what it may seem, this tropical-looking plant with huge green leaves does not require large amounts of water. It prefers indoor environments, which it will flood with life thanks to its striking presence and lushness.

Like any other species from tropical climates, its natural environment is forests and jungles, under layers and layers of other larger and higher species. Therefore, you won't like places with direct sun. A small illuminated corner will be enough for you! As for water, their fluid needs are low. One watering a week during the winter and a couple of times during the summer will be more than enough.

  • Succulents

also called succulents, have now become very popular as ornamental plants thanks to their simple beauty and easy maintenance. There are countless varieties in different shapes, colors and sizes. You could create an entire garden with just them! Their main common feature is the thick, fleshy appearance of the leaves.

To maintain their juicy appearance, they need very bright environments, but never direct light. The fleshy, rounded shape of the leaves is not simply the result of chance. In their natural habitat they grow in tremendously dry environments, so they use their leaves to store water inside and thus be able to withstand long periods of drought. They can be placed indoors or outdoors, as long as frost is not common in the area.

  • Cactus The cactus

is without a doubt the hardiest plant in existence. Like succulents, it grows in the most arid and desert areas. But unlike them, they use their inner cavities to establish their water reserves there. They are very curious plants, as they lack leaves and the stem itself is responsible for photosynthesis. One of its most characteristic elements are the spines that cover its surface.

Its maintenance is very simple. They only need very bright areas and warm temperatures. As for watering, in this case it is better to fall short than to overdo it. Occasionally moistening the soil will suffice. The worst things are waterlogging and frost, which could kill them in the blink of an eye.
