Succulents

When it comes to low-maintenance houseplants, succulents are almost always the go-to option. A succulent refers to any plant that stores water in various structures. This makes them pretty resilient as they need very little watering and are considered to be very low-maintenance. However, succulents do need an ample amount of sunlight to survive so be sure to place it on your windowsill so that it can soak up the precious sunlight.

Rubber Tree

How many people can say that they have a tree in their kitchen? Ficus elastica or rubber trees can grow in just about every environment. While it won’t grow into a full tree, you will have to prune it occasionally. Rubber trees come in different types and colors so you can pick one that best suits the aesthetics of your kitchen.

Pothos

Epipremnum aureum or pothos is a great indoor plant for beginners because they are incredibly easy to take care of. They are also quite flexible when it comes to the environments they can survive in. Pothos can thrive under a variety of light conditions. These plants are also drought-tolerant which means they don’t need to be watered often and will be resistant to the heat that emanates from your kitchen. Pothos is also great if you have limited space to work with as they are excellent hanging plants.

Snake Plant

Sansevieria or snake plants are among the most popular houseplants. This is mainly because they can survive in just about every environment. To add to this, snake plants also require very little light to thrive. In fact, you don’t even have to place the snake plant near a window and it’ll grow just fine. Aside from being resilient, the snake plant also comes in a multitude of different colors. You can pick the best one out that matches the theme of your kitchen.

Speaking of resilient plants, ZZ plants are also a great option if you’re looking for low-maintenance houseplants. ZZ plants are extremely adaptable and can flourish in low-light conditions. What makes ZZ plants great is that they grow from rhizomes. Essentially, this means that they hardly ever need any watering.
