Easy Houseplants

I have been slowly growing my houseplant collection and most of them are very easy to take care of!

If you are starting out with house plants, read my beginner’s guide HERE.

These houseplants are easy to grow making them perfect for any beginner plant lover!

Spider Plant and Umbrella Plant

I started getting into houseplants at the beginning of this year. I made it my goal to become a plant mama and I have been successfully keeping these plants alive for a while now!

I find that I am successful at keeping these plants alive and well by setting a water schedule for them. I usually water them on Mondays so that I don’t forget about them. I also have a list of my plants in my notes and how much water/how often I water them.

The houseplants I have are super easy to take care of so I thought I would share what they all are and my watering schedule so that you can try them out too!


A low maintenance plant, I have this in the front of my living room which is a north facing window so it gets some good sunlight. I water it every other week with 1/2 cup of water.


This plant has been so easy to grow! The leaves are so fun and spikey and can be cleaned, if they have some dust/dirt on them. The Dracaena helps to purify the air. I have it in the living room as it doesn’t need lots of bright direct light. I water it every week with 1/2 cup of water.

Dracaena and Silver Leaf Fern


I have moved the Pilea around the house a lot, but finally determined a good spot for it is in the dining room which gets some bright light, but not all day long. I water it every other week with 1/2 cup of water.


A pothos is beyond easy to care for! I have it on my mantel and water it every Monday with about 3/4 cup of water. It doesn’t need direct light so it has been doing great in the living room which doesn’t have direct sunlight. I love that it trails down the fireplace.


My prayer plant has been growing SO well! I think it is almost time to repot it. I have it in the playroom which is a south facing room so it gets tons of bright direct light. They like lots of light and humidity so I water it every week with 1/4 cup of warm water. I also mist it with water on Mondays and Thursdays or Fridays.

Prayer Plant


This plant has been struggling a bit. I am not the best at growing ferns, but I think I might move it to our bathroom as I have heard they do well in bathrooms since there is lots of humidity in there from the shower. I have been watering the fern every Monday with 1/4 cup of water and misting it on Thursday or Friday.


I struggled with my spider plant at first, but now it is thriving! I have it in the playroom a little further from the windows, but still giving it tons of light. I water it every week with 3/4 cup of water. The leaves are healthy and are growing new ones all the time!


This is a relatively new plant for me, but so far it has been growing really well! They can get really large so I am prepared to repot it eventually. I water it every week with 1/4 cup of water. I check it at the end of the week to see if the soil is dry as they don’t like dry soil. I love the shape of the leaves on the umbrella plant.

This has become such a fun hobby for me and I promise, if I can keep these plants alive, YOU CAN TOO! I just try to learn as much as I can about the plants before bringing them into my home. I try to have a designated spot for them before buying so I know that they will do well and thrive. It does take some trial and error as you can see, I have had to move some plants around before finding a good home for it.
