Plants with Zero Maintenance
Every plant requires a certain amount of care. But some can put up with (or even prefer) minimal tending.
These options look lovely, and will fare well even if caring is always the forgotten to-do item on your list.
1. Pothos (Money Plant)
There’s a reason people have grown this plant for so many years or some plants have survived for decades. You can forget them even have it, and somehow it still keeps right on growing.
This large family of plants is so drought tolerant that watering once a month is usually sufficient.
There’s a reason this plant is a popular choice for many first-time indoor gardeners. It provides a large, dramatic presence and is very simple to grow once you understand its needs.
Many people have their ficus trees for a number of years.
4. Zamioculcas zamiifolia ( ZZ plant ) or Aroid Palm
These beauties, which grow in tall stalks of deep green, rubbery leaves, actually like to be left alone.
Though they prefer moderate levels of sunlight, but can tolerate low light and very low water too, so they’re often go-to choice for offices.
5. Jade Plant
Also known as friendship tree or money plant, jade plant has been widely used as a houseplant for many years.
Give it good light and low water (about once or twice a month), make sure your potting soil is well drained and never let this plant sit in water for long.
Also called mother-in-law’s tongue (perhaps because its leaves come to a sharp point), this easy-care plant is a popular choice for many homes due to its care tolerance.

In general use a soil-based compost placed over a generous layer of drainage material such as earthenware crocks, pebbles or gravel. Water and feed regularly, especially while plants are bearing flowers and fruit, when a high-potash fertilizer is recommended.
Buy Decorative Pebbles :
Decorate planters or garden landscapes with these decorative pebbles :
Using pebbles in a garden brings different colours and textures to the garden. Pebbles can also fill up otherwise empty space in the garden, leaving a visual that might be considered more interesting and aesthetic than simple dirt, soil or mulch.
