Native to eastern Africa, the ZZ Plant has glossy green polished leaves and helps purify air. It requires very little water and sunlight, so you’ll have to do your hardest to let it die. Let this one dry out between waterings and you should have a flourishing plant.
A little introduction is required for this gem. Heralding from South Africa this structured beauty needs very little water, actually, overwatering is the only determined way of killing it. This could be possibly the perfect ‘bachelors’ plant. Get onto this one.
The ‘Beyonce’ of the plant world – the Bird of Paradise plant is magnificent, exotic and known for its large crane-like leaves and makes a killer statement. All this grandeur comes though with not entirely being low-maintenance, but what relationships aren’t? It will require consistent waterings (although too much water will cause it to weep and die), good sunlight and and some house keeping with weekly dustings. Give this one some love and it will reward you with being the feature piece in your room.
A super awesome hanging plant, the Golden Pothos has long vines of heart-shaped leaves and grow faster than you can say ‘Trump is a twat’. It requires an abundance of watering, but that aside it will essentially thrive for you. Once again fabulous at purifying the air. A nod to the 70s (which are soooooo back).
A visually striking plant. Calling the deserts of United States, Mexico and Central America their home, the Yucca grows slowly, requires ample sunlight and needs frequent waterings. It should be noted that yucca plants have sharp pointy leaves, so careful as you wander aimlessly around through your home.
Another flash-back from the 70s, this plant is perfect as a little pot, a big tree or what ever damn size you prefer. These guys only need watering for half the year, so you’re onto a winner! Disco-inferno.
