Low Maintenance Plant Queens 👸

Low Maintenance Plant Queens 👸

Do you live a busy life? Don't have time to spend hours tending to your plant babies?

Never fear, there are plenty of green friends that will thrive at your place.

Devil's Ivy

Starting off strong with the Devil's Ivy (Epipremnum). They are low-light lovers as well being happy with periods of neglect. Did you know there are lots of different colours and varieties? Above is the stunning Snow Queen with big patches of white that help brighten up a dark corner. 

Or maybe try the classic Devil's Ivy, Epipremnum aureum that grows quickly with luscious green and yellow leaves.


Snake Plant

The Snake Plant (Sansevieria) is a classic plant that thrives on neglect and only needs water very infrequently (I water mine roughly once a month). They also are happy being placed in a low light part of your house or office. A faithful plant baby to the core. But don't think you have to get the stereotypical yellow and green version that we all associate with this plant. Check out some other options like my favourite Bantel's Sensation with slender, white and green leaves.

Zanzibar or ZZ Plant

Another classic indoor plant (Zamioculcas) that's been popular for many years due to it's reliability and needing very little attention. There are now many varieties that have been grown to diversify this popular plant. The Dark Zamicro is a new variety that has beautiful dark leaves and stays compact and bushy.


A low light succulent that flowers! What's not to love?? There's also a HUGE variety of options when it comes to the stunning rhipsalis genus. The campos-portana variety is a particular favourite as it grows long, hair-like tendrils that are fun to play with and also easy to propagate.

Or if you want a bit more colour, the 'Red Coral' variety is a bushier, thicker plant with pops of red on the new growth. The more light you give this plant, the more the colour will come through.

I hope this gives you some nice options to green up your space without adding more work to your plate.
