Grow your own miniature bamboo forest! Lucky Bamboo is prized for its auspicious value and beauty. The green stems curve and twist, giving them an attractive appearance. Leaves of the Lucky Bamboo sprout from the top of the stems.

The vibrant green shades of the leaves are balanced out by yellow stripes. Caring for a Lucky Bamboo plant is as easy as replacing the water it’s placed in. When the leaves of the bamboo turn yellow, they should be cut off to encourage growth.

7. Spider Plants –

Spider Plants are easy maintenance plants that you can grow in hanging planters. Even though they can be grown in regular pots, the elevation allows the leaves to droop down. The leaves of the Spider Plant are its main attraction, anything that enhances it is a plus.

Spider Plants are tough and they can adapt to most conditions. Keep the pot or plant near a windowsill and the plant will do the rest. The plant does not need a regular watering schedule. Just sprinkle in some water when the top layer of the soil dries out.

Chinese Evergreens are a very popular breed of low maintenance indoor plants. The Aglaonema Maria is our pick when it comes to Chinese Evergreens. It’s a simplistic plant that goes well with modern-day indoor designs.

When it comes to indoor plant care the Aglaonema Maria is no different from the others on the list. It is extremely tolerant of changes and requires very little care. The plant thrives in indirect sunlight. However, we do recommend that the caretaker mists the plant at least once a day. The Chinese Evergreen is a tropical plant that prefers humid conditions. Misting simulates an ideal living environment for it.

The plant has vibrant lime green leaves with hints of yellow in them. A perfect summation of what we expect from a plant. It’s catchy, brightens up any room and is forgiving to a large extent. These plants grow well in indirect sunlight which mimics the shade of a tropical canopy. Just make sure to water them when the soil feels dry.
