You love plants, but you are a beginner and you always kill your beautiful plants?
The good news is that there are a few robust plants which are quite easy to grow and they are almost indestructible.

I can recommend the following easy growing indoor plants for you:

1. Dragon Tree (Dracaena marginata)
These plants need a well-drained potting mix and bright light. Do not forget that dracaena can not tolerate freezing.

  1. I have also had a lot of luck with anthuriums. They do pretty well with medium light and “neglect”! I used to kill my jade plants with love aka too much water. I am getting better at letting them be!

  2. I love all these choices. I’m becoming very fond of Dracaenas, since I recently cured one that was infested with sooty mould, and they are salt tolerant and grow well by the ocean. I also have the ZZ Plants.
