New to gardening?


Thinking to start a new plant collection but don't have any idea what to choose and how to care?

Let me tell you the best and amazing plant collection for beginners.


The first we have the most trendy plant: The Snake Plant

This plant is also called mother's in law tongue because it's too sharp and strong.

It can thrive in Very low light, high and low temperature, or fewer water conditions. (Too easy to care and propagate)




The next is: Spider Plant

It's a fancy-looking plant that can be grown indoors but indirect sunlight.

It is basically kept in hanging pots for more attraction. It needs water only twice a week and can thrive even in bad weather conditions.





Another one is: The Peace Lily Plant

It is the most beautiful indoor flowering plant, though it blooms only twice a year, the flowers stay for a long time if cared for properly.

It needs very low irrigation and fertilizer.

Bright indirect sunlight and high humidity are suitable for growing and blooming.




Now, the most popular and common plant: The pothos, here we call it 'Money Plant' -

it's believed that the good growth of pothos brings luck and prosperity to the home. It is the easiest to care for and can be grown in water too. It should be kept away from direct sunlight and is very easy to propagate. It comes in a vast variety like variegated, golden color, and more.



The final one is: The Syngonium

It has broad and big leaves and it can thrive in adverse conditions when there's no light or less water or less humidity. It should be kept in Indirect sunlight sometimes for its better growth. It grows in clusters and can be easily cared for and propagated. This has too great and beautiful varieties as well. We should water it twice a week.



We have a misconception of 'indoor' plants that they can be grown in dark but every plant needs some light (direct or indirect) for its proper growth. So shift your plants to a lightroom or balcony sometimes (like once in 15 days ).

We'll talk about individual plant care and more about this in upcoming blogs.
