A perennial that prefers bright light indoors. It sometimes takes a year or two to flower fully, but it grows easily and can last a surprisingly long time.

Matisse knew the deal. A dramatic climbing plant that can thrive even in indirect light. It loves the heat, though, so make sure it’s somewhere at least somewhat warm in the winter.

3. Fire Pencil Cactus

Also known as Firesticks. It’s native to Africa and grows really fast as long as you keep it in full sun.

4. Starfish succulent

Colloquially called a succulent, but maybe not even a succulent? Still amazing, though. Unfortunately these guys are really rare (mostly found in Peru and China) but if you’re feeling super adventurous you can order the seeds yourself.


More info here.


5. Lucky Bamboo




Pretty low maintenance — just keep it out of direct sunlight and, if you want it to twist and curve, just periodically turn the stalk. No wires necessary.


More info here.


6. River Spiderwort

7. Staghorn Fern

Basically a vegetarian-friendly version of a moose head on the wall. So cool. One thing to keep in mind is that you should be regularly soaking the mount to give the fern enough moisture.

8. Vermont African Violet

Almost every variety of African violets grow easily and quickly, just keep it near a bright window.

9. Sago Palm

Actually a cycad and not a palm. Cycad’s have been around since dinosaurs — literally — and sago palms specifically are sturdy but grow pretty slowly.

A pretty damn elegant creeping succulent that sometimes flowers and sometimes doesn’t. Just be sure to pot in a hanging basket so the pearls can trail down.

Echeveria Blue Curls

The most psychedelic succulent. Most commonly found in Mexico, Central and South America.

These bromeliads are so adaptable because they only use their roots to attach themselves to something. Most importantly, they need air circulation and only an occasional misting.

14. Sensitive Plant

A Brazilian plant with a strange evolution quirk where the leaves can curl up on contact as protection from a potential predator. This folding can even be set off by too-harsh sunlight, so be wary.
