Best Plants for the Green Thumbs


If you’re new to gardening or just looking for an easy plant to care for, these are the best plants for the green-thumbed. They are simple to maintain and grow quickly, making them perfect if you’re a beginner or just want an easy houseplant.

Coleus plant

Coleus is a flowering plant. Coleus is a perennial plant, but it’s not very hardy and will die if the temperature dips below freezing or soars above 80 degrees Fahrenheit (26 degrees Celsius). Coleus is also a tropical and tender annual that can be grown as an ornamental houseplant in cooler climates.

Coleus likes partial shade to full sun exposure and requires moist soil rich in organic matter in order to thrive. However, it does best with ample water when planted outdoors during warm weather months and less frequent watering during cooler ones because its roots don’t like wet feet for long periods of time; avoid overwatering by allowing the top half inch of soil to dry out between waterings instead of constantly soaking it until saturated all the way down through root zone levels every week or two weeks depending on growing conditions at your location throughout summer months when temperatures rise above 75°F for long periods daily without adequate rainfall due to lack thereof due climate change caused global warming leading towards extinction crisis causing mass starvation worldwide before end times come true!

Elephant Ears plant

Elephant Ears plants are among the easiest to care for. They’re hearty and disease-resistant, and they have a beautiful, tropical look. With so many varieties out there (including some with variegated leaves), it’s easy to find one that suits your taste. Whether you’re just starting out with indoor gardening or don’t have much time to devote to it, Elephant Ears are an ideal plant for you!

Unfortunately, these plants are not good for everyone—or rather, every pet owner should take note: elephant ear plants are poisonous if eaten by cats or dogs because they contain calcium oxalate crystals that can irritate the mouth and throat. If you have cats or dogs in your home but still want to decorate with this awesome houseplant, make sure they can’t reach any part of it by placing it out of reach on a high shelf or table.

Dieffenbachia plant

Dieffenbachia is a tropical plant that has leaves that are large, thick and green. The plant is poisonous to humans and animals if eaten. However, the plant is not toxic if the sap touches skin or gets in the eyes or mouth.

If you have pets in your home, keep this information in mind!

Lantana plant

Lantana is a flowering shrub that is often used in landscaping. Lantana plants are perennial, growing up to 3 feet tall. They have colorful flowers that attract bees and butterflies to your garden. If you’re looking for an edible plant, look no further than lantana! The leaves and flowers of lantana are edible and can be used in salads or added to tea for their medicinal benefits (they are an anti-inflammatory).

Pothos Plant

The Pothos plant is a great plant for beginners, or those with little time and space. It is an excellent choice when you are just starting out as a gardener, because it requires minimal care to thrive. You can keep it in an apartment and it will be relatively easy to maintain.

The vines grow rapidly so it’s best not to keep this type of plant near other plants, as the vines will tend to invade their roots. The pothos also needs water regularly during the hot months but should only receive water every two weeks during cold weather (when they go into dormancy).

These plants are a few of the easiest plants to care for.

  • Peace Lily
  • Zebra Plant
  • Boston Ferns
  • Snake Plant (Sansevieria trifasciata)
