Which house plants are easiest to take care of in the UK?
A succulent, spider plant, Zamioculcas Zamiifolia (ZZ plant), aloe vera, or a cactus, are all very low maintenance and a great choice for first-time plant parents or those with difficult plant-living conditions i.e. rooms with limited lighting.
That means if you're quite forgetful, your new additions won't suffer if don't happen to water them enough. A Philodendron or a Swiss cheese plant are both larger species if you're looking to go to the next level, and need a little bit more care.
