I've killed so many plants in the past 5 yrs & I've learned a lot. The biggest thing I've learned is plants don't need as much attention as you think they do. The main thing most people over do is water. (Tip: Mark when you water on your calendar.) It's easy to overwater. Here's a list of plants I own, that I haven't killed* that are thriving. 🌿🌿

    Jade. Any and all jade - Try the Hanging Vine Jade though it's really lovely. Once you get the hang of not killing your plants, jade are really easy to propagate. (I've since killed this plant. Trying to propagate what's left. Guess what? I over watered. πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚)

    Snake plant or the super fucked up name Mother in Law's tongue - Seriously put this bad Larry in your house and literally do nothing to it. It will thrive.

    Philodendron - barely needs light, loves water. The great thing about this plant is it lets you know if it needs water: it's leaves droop.

    Spider plant - a little bit of light and you're good to go. Water when soil is dry.

    Schefflera- another one you can completely ignore. If you over water, its leaves turn yellow. Starve that bastard.

    Cactus - ignore those suckers, drown them in sunlight.

    Croton* - low light, gorgeous leaves. Let dry out btwn waterings. I don't have a photo because my stupid ass roommate knocked it over while I was in LA and it died. 😩
  8. β€’
    Rubber tree plants - beautiful and bold. Loves light, let dirt dry out btwn waterings.

    Succulents: NO. Everyone says these are super easy. They're not. Because most likely you're overwatering. Until you get the hang of how to not kill plants leave these ladies alone. Treat yourself when you're no longer a killer.

    Aloe - so easy, plant, water minimally, ignore.

    The one in this picture is an offshoot of a larger one I've had for nearly 20 years. 20 years! That's hard to kill. Same story with my philodendrons, one plant has turned into several.
