[post_ads]Small plants can have big effects in your home. Houseplants can beautify your indoor space by adding character, tranquility, and a host of other benefits—if you can manage to keep them alive, that is. With August signaling the start of a new school year, nurturing houseplants (or remembering to water them every now and then) can become a lost priority for even the greenest of thumbs.

Fortunately, we at nousDECOR found six resilient houseplants that don't need your TLC, and require only minimal attention.

Aloe Vera

Known for its anti-inflammatory medicinal qualities, aloe plants are also champion survivors. The spiky succulent has distinguishable toothed leaves that can grow to three feet despite infrequent watering and moderate exposure to sunlight. This popular ornamental plant is a perfect addition to the bathroom as bright lighting and humidity make for an ideal environment to keep aloe plants alive and well with minimal upkeep.

Dwarf Jade

Jade plants have earned a reputation for their ability to flourish in various lighting conditions and for surviving with little water for long periods of time. The Dwarf Jade is considered one of the easiest indoor bonsai plants to grow and is recommended to beginners as well as serial plant-killers. Notable for their small, shiny olive-green leaves, jade plants are forgiving houseplants that can be displayed to add instant flair to any room.

Air Plants

Air plants get their nutrients from the air and don't need to be planted in soil, making them uniquely hardy houseplants with unparalleled design versatility. Their unique qualities allow them to be mounted on just about anything from chic glass, ceramic, and porcelain vessels to industrial-looking aged wood and rusted metal planters. Hanging air plants have been trending for some time, but don't hesitate to keep these air plants grounded in colorful pastel display pods for a unique touch.

Mother-in-Law's Tongue

Also commonly known as the Snake Plant, the Mother-in-Law's Tongue is a remarkable houseplant with a strikingly exotic appearance and near indestructible qualities. Its upright leaf habit coupled with its bold, clean lines are ideal for both traditional and modern settings. Despite being a low-maintenance houseplant, the Mother-in-Law's Tongue reduces indoor air pollution and clears smog, formaldehyde, and trichloroethylene from the air. In fact, the Mother-in-Law's Tongue has gotten some love from NASA, landing on its list of Top Ten Household Air Cleansing Plants.

Peace Lily

Peace Lily plants have been a popular choice with a reputation as one of the few indoor plants that bloom with regularity. It is also easy to care for as Peace Lily plants tend to sag when it needs to be watered. Joining the Mother-in-Law's Tongue as one of NASA's top ten household air cleansing plants, Peace Lily plants offer the aesthetic beauty of handsome leaves and fresh blooms while combating volatile organic compounds.


Short for Zamioculcas Zamifolia (and often further abbreviated to just "ZZ"), ZeeZee plants are about as exciting as household plants can get. This stylish and attractive plant is also one of the newest houseplants to burst onto the scene. The ZeeZee plant only started being grown in mass by Dutch nurseries in the late 1990's and have gained steadily gained popularity for its thick, fleshy leafstalks that are durable enough to be mistaken for plastic. Nicknamed the Eternity Plant, ZeeZee plants are ageless wonders: the plant doesn't grow. At all. It is so resilient that experts have claimed it is "almost a challenge to kill it," making it a conversation piece in itself.
