Put off by that one time at uni you thought you’d try and make the communal space somewhat liveable, only to find that even the succulent you bought managed to die? It wasn’t you, we blame the weird guy from the corner room that left his dishes to fester for three months before attempting to clean – toxic!

We’ve got faith and if we’ve managed to keep them alive we’re sure you can too – and if you’re still not convinced, this list contains 10 of some of the easiest houseplants to care for (order not applicable)!

Check them out below and get inspiration for your #monsteramonday Instagram posts (it’s not a thing, we just want it to be, and they’re not actually that easy to care for…!).

  1. Snake Plant (Sansevieria trifasciata)

2. Calathea (Calathea Makoyana)

3. Rubber Plant (Ficus Elastica)

4. Philodendron (Philodendron bipinnatifidum)

5. Peace Lily (Spathiphyllum)
