Plants That Will Grow

I have always loved plants, but I have what some call a brown thumb. Gardening isn’t my strong suit, but these plants are pretty easy to keep alive. And so I share the easiest plants to take care of.

Easy Plants
Aloe Vera

Being around 2x2 feet, this plant is well known for its resilience-and the fact that it helps with sunburns). A desert plant, it needs very little water and lots of sun. You don't even need to fertilize it! Just grow it in some sandy soil and it'll be fine.

Inch Plant

Inch Plants are said to have started the trend of plant swapping, as community members would trade cuttings of the plant. It likes to have direct light sometimes, and indirect other times. If it becomes duller, increase the lighting. It wants well-draining but rich soil.

Spider Plant

These little guys are hard to kill, as they are simply resilient. They like shady areas and balanced water levels. They don't have any special soil needs. They produce 'pups' that can be grown into a new plant.

About the Contributor
Alix Bennett, Author
Hi! My name's Alix Bennett, and I like frogs (hence the frog hat🐸). I am currently a high school student here at Palestine High School as well as a dual credit student at LTC, and a summer volunteer at George Rogers Clark National Historic Park. I want to be an ecologist, as well as a writer and artist on the side. My favorite artist is Pidgin Dolls, and my favorite musicians are Penelope Scott, cavetown, and Skydxddy. I'm a Neopagan, which means my religion is based on natural cycles and the spirits thereof. My pronouns are She/Her. I'm a huge Pokemon and DnD fan, and I love learning about all kinds of things, such as frogs, insects, mushrooms, frogs, plants, geology, frogs, space, history, frogs, and other subjects. And also frogs. I like frogs. I want to be needlessly kind. If people can needlessly hate strangers, I can needlessly love strangers.
