5 indoor house plants I haven’t killed

If you haven’t noticed yet, indoor house plants are super trendy as décor accents. But, if you’re anything like me, it can be difficult to keep them alive for any length of time. I thought I’d share five hard-to-kill indoor house plants that I’ve had luck with!

About three months ago, I decided to go for it once again and see if being a little more intentional with plant care would make a difference.

I don’t want to jinx myself (because the plants hear everything), but they are all living and even have new growth!

how to find indoor house plants

I collect my house plants from all over. We live 30 minutes from Raleigh and we have an amazing farmers market with tons of local nurseries selling beautiful plants. Maybe you live far from the city or there are no options for buying plants close to home. So many companies ship plants now. Costa Farms is an online plant store that I’ve heard great things about, although I’ve not personally ordered through them. You can order many of their products through Amazon or Home Depot. Wal-Mart usually has a great garden center too. Surprisingly, Facebook marketplace or Craigslist is also a great way to find local plants for sale!

I picked this up from Facebook marketplace and for the size, it was a great deal for $35. Not only is it the easiest plant I’ve ever taken care of, but as a bonus, it’s also super trendy and modern as a decor accent.

I thought for sure this one wouldn’t make it, but recently I’ve had three new stalks start to grow.

This babe needs a lot of bright indirect light, so my bedroom is the perfect spot. I had it outside for a while, but the direct intense sunshine was too way much. It’s thriving inside!

So this one I’ve had for over a year. It’s alive but unfortunately not totally thriving. You can see some browning around the edges. I cut down the dying stems, but they have replaced themselves quickly.

Still working on it, but it has survived weeks of forgetting to water, so I’d say that’s a win!


Perfect for shelves and plant hangers, this plant can survive low-medium light conditions. I have this in my bathroom (where there are no windows) and in my living room with medium lighting. What a fun and dreamy little plant.

I’ve heard this one is hard to please, but so far so good for me. I have it in my bedroom so it gets lots of bright, filtered sunlight. I water once a week, and it’s still alive after three months!
