Plants for People Who Absolutely Can’t Keep a Plant Alive

Here’s a real fact about me: I love plants. But, for the longest time, I struggled to keep them thriving in my apartment. I tried it all: talking, vitamins, sunshine, you name it. End result? Dead plants.

My Journey to Become a Plant Lady

To bring the power of plants into my life, I went to the experts, in this case, a plant-loving coworker and my mom. Armed with their suggestions, I went ahead and planned a trip to my local plant nursery.

Once there, I still wanted to find more information about the plants I was about to get. After some thorough research, a thirty-minute slideshow presentation of my apartment to the gentleman at the plant nursery, and the perfect pots to go with my new plants, I found them.

If you’re anything like me, you keep jealously looking at your friends and neighbors live plants thinking to yourself, “why can’t I keep my plants alive”?

GR8 Plants for Beginners

Don’t worry. The infographic below will show you beautiful houseplants every beginner plant parent should have. Accompanied by a few tricks on how to care for them.
