Not the most gifted of indoor gardeners? You’ve come to the right place. Matthis Helmick and Tassy Zimmerman of urban-gardening boutique Sprout Home offer their top picks for plants that are both fun to look at and hard to kill.
While moss tends to be a popular request with customers, it’s too high maintenance for many people. Creeping Pilea, commonly known as Creeping Charlie, is a thicker, tougher alternative. “They have cute, waxy leaves that allow them not to dry out so fast,” says Helmick. Keep in low to bright light, and water about once a week (less if set in lower light).
