Favorite/ easiest houseplants you CAN grow

CactusBoss(Zone 5a)July 28, 2013

Kind of a sequel to my other post "House plants you can't grow. For me I'd have to say Chinese Evergreen, Peace Lily, Jade, Cactus, Thanksgiving Cactus, and ZZ Plant.

Just about any type of philodendron & Monstera I've tried. Epipremnum aureum is a very easy plant to grow. Dieffenbachia too.

As you've said Spathiphyllum & Zamioculcas, along with most common aroids are pretty easy.

Dracena marginata & Dracena fragrans and various Sansevieria are pretty much plug and play.

I have a few. Peace Lily, Pothos, ZZ Plant, Peperomia (specifically P. caperata), and African Violet (I have the last one near a South window, so I don't have to do much with it at all!).

Like CB the easiest plants for me are the ones that can dry out but also I need ones that can tolerate my limey water. Cacti aren't the best because of the low light situation I have here all winter. I have to not water them at all all winter, which is long here, and if I do start watering them before the days get long, then they stretch and look not so hot. But I have a few anyway. Also it can be pretty cold here in my wood heated house in the winter, and hot sometimes in my non air conditioned house in the summer. That said, I can grow African violets pretty easily, although they will take a bloom hiatus in the summer. Also lipstick does okay, although it tends to decline over time. Hoyas are great, and haworthia. I have a lot of Xmas, TC's Easter cacti, and they do okay. Also Oxalis. I have four kinds, and they are one of the most carefree blooming plants.
