Low Maintenance Houseplants

Looking for a way to liven up your apartment? The Timberland Blog has the perfect idea: low maintenance houseplants! Bring some color and new life into your Savannah, GA apartment by adding one of these plants to your home.


Watering isn’t a big deal with succulents (including jade, cacti, candelabra trees and many other varieties) — so they’re the perfect plants if you forget to water or aren’t home much. The shiny green leaves of plants like jade are a fun addition to a neutral-colored or minimalist room, and cacti are available in many different colors and shapes.

Spider Plants

These spiky-looking plants will help purify the air in your home, and they live for decades in just about any conditions! You can easily transport cuttings from the “mother plant” into water or soil to grow a new plant, too.

Peace Lily

This plant is elegant, beautiful and incredibly low maintenance. Plus it helps to remove impurities from the air so you can breathe easier! The peace lily is hardy, forgiving, and will even let you know when it is thirsty — look for the telltale droop.

Snake Plants

Snake plant care is very straightforward. These plants can be neglected for weeks at a time; yet, with their strappy leaves and architectural shape, they still look fresh. Additionally, they can survive low light levels, drought, and have few insect problems.


This iconic plant is great to keep indoors. It’s easy to care for, and it does well in a range of environments — the color of the leaves do dim if left in low light — and even in nutrient rich or nutrient poor soils. Plant it in a hanging basket or use as a climbing plant on your balcony. Just trim the stems back a little once they get too long. They can grow up to eight feet or longer!
