No one can explain the mystery of Nature. NOT EVEN NASA.
One of their studies is on how certain plants can remove harmful toxic elements from the air and improve our indoor environments.
When I saw the list, I realized that we actually have many of them growing at our home! Which makes me really excited to share with you from first hand experience!
So here’s a collection of 12 easiest indoor plants, plus some tips and fun facts for you!
Why choose these 12 plants?
- they are extremely easy – almost impossible to kill really, and believe me I have killed plenty of plants, yet these have survived my brown thumbs
- they are small to medium in size, so can be grown in small spaces
- these all require relatively low light – we may not notice it, but our indoor environments lack natural light, which is why so many indoor plants look stressed and gets sick with mildew or bugs although you have been good with watering!

1, 2 & 3. Spathiphyllum cochlearispathum / Peace Lily, Sansevieria javanica / Snake Plant, Chlorophytum comosum / Spider Plant
The Peace Lily have such a beautiful name and never ending flowers, it is also the most effective air purification plant on NASA’s list! This little plant from Southern Mexico does require more frequent watering than everything else here.
Sansevarias come from Africa, Madagascar, India or Indonesia. This is one of the smallest, grows to only 6″-8″ tall. It sends out runners, which can be rooted easily. The thick leaves store water, which means if you forget, it is quite forgiving!
The Spider Plant is great for brighten up our homes with the beautiful variegated foliage. Such a delicate looking plant is surprisingly kill-proof. It carries plantlets on the arching flower stems, which can be planted to create a new plant!
