All of the following plants are both beautiful and easy to care for. Eight beautiful flowers that are cheap to buy and cheap to maintain but still look good! There are more expensive plants out there that can look fantastic, but some of us on the other end of the spectrum want something nice for a bit less.
So here are my top 8 picks – feel free to leave yours in the comments! Looking for some peace and tranquillity inside your home? Plants are the perfect way to do this!
The ZZ plant is an evergreen which means it can grow in low light, won’t die if you neglect it and even looks good with a few leaves missing! This plant also has a fun name: ZZ plant because its scientific name is so long that no one bothers using it.
But we will be here on our website! To care for this plant, make sure there’s enough light for it and give it plenty of room as they can grow quite big up to 1m tall with age. You can always order flowers online and surprise your loved ones with its fragrance.
The chlorophytum is an old favourite for many people, easy to care for and grows new shoots on its own pretty quickly. As long as you make sure it has enough water, it will grow happily either indoors or outdoors during the summer months – ensure it is somewhere bright or part-shaded! Not getting enough water will result in the plant dying, but if you forget to water it occasionally, it’ll be fine.
This lovely flower grows slowly and can grow to a height of 1.5m if you give it plenty of time! The Dracaena Massangeana is fairly low-light and only really needs to be watered when the soil is dry – completely ignore watering this one, and it won’t die.

This plant is also understood to make oxygen at night, which means that having this in your bedroom will help you sleep better (this has yet to be scientifically tested, though!)

It produces nice white flowers now and then, making for a lovely peaceful sight inside your home.

This one is a fern! Ferns are perfect as they do well indoors and outdoors and don’t need much light or water. You can buy pots with built-in reservoirs for those who forget to water their plants from time to time – it’s amazing what you can get these days.
If the Boston Fern gets too much sun, the lower leaves turn yellow, which isn’t pretty, but as long as it has some nice bright indirect light during winter months, the plant will be absolutely fine!
