10 Low Maintenance Houseplants For The Winter


When winter comes around and you've clipped your plants down, covered up your young trees, and packed up your garden shed, it can be a little discouraging to end your seasonal hobby for another year. But it doesn't have to end there! Why not bring some life into your home and continue doing what you love? Low maintenance houseplants are perfect for this time of year when it gets too cold to maintain the gardens outdoors but still want to indulge in the soothing tranquillity that gardening offers.


Indoor plants can be fickle and hard to maintain. So to keep things relaxing and enjoyable, I've compiled a list of the top 10 low maintenance houseplants that are ideal for (easily!) maintaining your green thumb during the winter.



1. ZZ Plant (Zamioculcas Zamiifolia)

The ZZ Plant is a low maintenance house plant that makes for a great all-season succulent. It has lush green leaves and thick trunks, so it can easily be mistaken as being a palm or small tree. This beautiful and unique ornamental house plant thrives in indirect sunlight and requires very little water. In fact, ZZ plants can thrive on a single watering every two to three weeks and should only be watered once the soil is completely dried out. The attractive, glossy foliage will add a sophisticated look to your home decor.



2. Fiddle-Leaf Fig (Ficus Lyrata)
