The hardiest houseplants

There is a belief that there are two types of people: those who have blessed hands, who touch withered plants and they come back to life with vigor and vigour, and those who touch healthy and perfect plants and they combust on their own initiative. This is nothing more than a myth, because anyone can keep their plants alive, they just need to find the perfect species and learn a skill: to observe.

We know that sometimes it is difficult to change a deep-rooted belief unless you have irrefutable evidence to overthrow it, so if you are looking for a plant that will help you eradicate these myths and allow you to reconcile with the plant world, you can try these species. These are the hardiest houseplants that will allow you to regain your confidence and start your collection.

Learn to look

The only thing you need to have perfect plants that cling to life is to learn to look. Start by studying the light conditions where you want to place them: are there windows? is there direct light all day? Or, on the contrary, is it rather dark? is there air conditioning or heating? do you have pets? how much space do you have? This will allow you to choose a plant that wants to continue to grow in these conditions.

You also need to be honest about your lifestyle. If you travel a lot or are forgetful, if you spend all day at home, if you get too anxious and over water and those details will tell you a lot about what you are willing to do for your plants. If you write down all these aspects, you will have a list of those conditions that will tell you what kind of plant you can have. Now you can check out our recommendations for hardy plants.
